    Because now you don't have to be ashamed anymore of your urge to go to the MacDonalds or Burger King or whatever joint you visit.

    Because you will not get fat from eating those.

    ...at least not when compared to the "Beer Barrel Belly Buster"!

    This behemoth burger comes with 10.5 pounds of ground beef, 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard and banana peppers -- and a bun.

    It costs $30.

    For my friend's 19th birthday party 2 years ago instead of a cake, we made him a burger like that. It was pretty radical, since my other friend is an excellent chef and is chums with the local baker, they had a custom made bun and everything. It wasn't quite as vertical as that one but the circumference was about the same.

    The birthday friend finished maybe 1/4 of it before he exploded.
     
  4. Add some bacon to that and I'd try it.

    and one wonders why the US is with distance the fattest nation on the planet :scowl:

    What a waste, what a waste...

    These kind of things make you realize that there is some stuff seriously wrong on this planet. You could easily feed an entire african family with that monstrous thing..

    Good points Vorago. I recently fasted for 30 days (Master Cleanse) and it changed the whole way I think about food. Everybody ingests waaay more than their body needs. Also, think about how much time out of every day the average person spends... 1. thinking about food 2. shopping for food 3. preparing/cooking food 4. eating food 5. cleaning up/washing dishes - it's crazy! Another thing I realized is that the human body is not designed to eat any animal flesh at all, it is far too toxic. I also learned that you can die from eating too much honey.

    down with food, hehe.

    That's news to me. If anything, simple carbohydrates and the entire grain portion of the food pyramid were never meant to be ingested by humans. Meat has been a staple throughout our evolution. After all, what would you eat during the winter in the pre-Supermarket era?
     
  16. :eyebrow:

    Suggesting that people weren't meant to eat a particular food group seems a bit presumptuous to me - meat, grain, or otherwise.
     
  17. That looks like something Fred Flintstone would eat.

    Humans certainly can eat grains, but they weren't meant to. The food pyramid was created in this day and age; our bodies weren't. People have only been eating grains for a few thousand years.

    Fixed it for you.

    I saw that on the news earlier today. That's what Jack Kevorkian would use if he were a cook instead of a doctor...
     
  20. :confused:

    Again, I think it's a stretch of the imagination to assume you or anyone else knows what humans were meant to eat.

    http://msnbc.msn.com/id/5263435/

    Seems like people got the grains idea a bit earlier than a few thousand years ago. Granted, the article suggests they didn't stick with it, but it shows that eating grain isn't so recent a phenomenon.

    An awful lot of researchers believe that primitive humans were primarily vegetarians - much like the apes they descended from. Interesting, indeed.
