Today I was planning on posting some of the latest developments in the “Battle of the Bulge” as people like to call our war against obesity (For so many years, it was drugs…now it’s pounds we’re fighting against!)
I was all set to write the post (which will now come later in the week) but then I came across this horror in the Daily News today.
The “Craz-E-Burger”: a 1500 calorie arterie-clogger. One beef patty. Loaded with cheese. Topped with bacon. And if that wasn’t bad enough, it’s sandwiched in between 2!!! Krispy Creme donuts. I seriously just vomited in my mouth.
First, it sounds just nasty. I thought the McGriddle was gross (a sandwich in between french toast), but this has trumped that. According to the article, this bad boy is the “hot” thing at fairs popping up across the country. And people aren’t only eating it, they’re eating A LOT of it. And loving it.
Experts, food companies, and politicians are racking their brains trying to find ways to get America slimmer. What’s the point, I ask, of labeling the calories im a bottle of Coke when people are eating “food” like this? There’s something MUCH deeper going on here, and it’s really scary. This makes deep-fried twinkies look as healthy as brocolli.
What we need is EDUCATION on proper nutrition. Stat! Before we have even more “Craz-E-Burger” induced heart attacks!
