The title of this thread is the name of a website I had sent to me. I found it really beneficial in making me want to eat as healthy as possible. :D


Warning: Really disgusting pictures of food that you may or may not want to admit to ever indulging in. ;)

I am sure it is stuff people put together as a concept of what overweight/obese/morbidly obese people eat but it is not true, at least for the most part or so I like to believe anyway. It is not true for me. Yes, I made bad food choices to get me to 330 pounds, no doubt there, but it wasn't the mixture and combinations anything like on that site :nono:

I'm with onederchic. Even at my top weight I tended towards relatively healthy foods - just way too much of them. I would say my biggest weakness was the salty / sweet / sour combinations I would buy at the bulk food store - macadamia nuts, chocolate caramel balls, sour gums. I was rarely a chips / ice cream person, and although at some point I was a fast food type, never fries, and haven't been for about 5 years now. My regain that started the losing this time was almost completely on what most people would consider 'good food'.

I posted a copy of the double-down (the new KFC item) on another board I post on. I'm amazed how many of the fitness junkies were all over it as a 'gotta try it'. And the more recent poll on there is on deep fried oreos (ick) where the 'yum' vote was last winning.

I ate a lot of unhealthy stuff at my top weight, but nothing that creative. Traditional burger and fries was good for me. The stuff on there does look gross. I was reading some of them to my (skinny) co-worker and her response was "mmm, that sounds good!" haha eww

I like myself too much to eat that kind of stuff.

Yeah, we know that site only too well. Oh puh-leeze, I'm going to the state fair on Monday, all that deep-fried junk, I can't imagine how anybody could find that appetizing

IMO most of these things were concocted for the sole purpose of e-fame. http://www.ryanadamsarchive.com/images/satellite/smilies/rolleye.gif

A friend linked me to the site a while back, and it was interesting to check out again and see all the new stuff. If I remember right, my friend was looking into making some kind of meat dish with a wrap *woven* out of bacon strips. :o

My mother actually made one of the featured desserts once for my birthday way back when I was in grade school, and I really don't think it was bad enough to be featured here . . . the ice cream cone cupcakes (http://thisiswhyyourefat.com/post/105072989/ice-cream-cone-cupcakes-via-flickr), although her version didn't have that huge glop of frosting on the top. Thought it was a unique and my classmates loved it!

But most of those treats . . . I really don't get it. I could probably like some of those desserts in small amounts, but I was never much of a meat person. Those deep-friend, meat-stuffed concoctions are way too much for me! :p

Yep, not even gonna lie. I would eat try at least half the things on that site. I'm not ashamed. I ate like crap before my bend towards healthy items. Still would try them.

Theyve added some things on there since I last saw it. I call that site Food Porn lol
Most of it I wouldnt eat and they look gross or just not something Id want but there are a few things that look tasty. We like watching the food/travel channel shows on the food eating contest and weird concoction foods.

The Fool’s Gold Loaf Sandwich looks sick... a hollowed out bread filled with pb, grape jelly, and bacon thats something I would have never thought was possible and something I would never ever ever ever try!

The reason I am fat is because I would skip breakfast and eat like only 800 calories a day, I put my body in starvation mode, there were a few times, however I would eat a double cheeseburger and large fry from Macdonalds.

I have to say, building the little milk cup into the cupcakes is adorable! haha

OMG!! Breaded and deep fried bacon???? Whoever thought of taking greasy bacon and deep frying it in batter to speed up the arterie clogging! I agree with most of the posts. I never partook in the crazy foods (and most disgusting). Just bad choices like burgers, pizza and wings and good ol regular cheesesteaks!

I'd totally try the tempura bacon and fried corn cob....

Oh my... I can't believe people actually eat those things... although the Oreo cupcake with the milk in the center? I could eat that one... I would have to share it though.... Oreos are my weakness.

I wish they'd show where people got the food... since alot of it looks like resturaunt food... not that I would go there!

I'm ashamed to say, going through those pages made me a little hungry and sometimes sick. Some things weren't so bad, like the cupcakes. I mean one cupcake isn't going to make you fat.

I will miss cheesefries :(

A lot of it reminds me of what a pregnant lady would have her husband drive all night to look for LOL.....Some of it was really nasty looking but there was a few I would probably eat if I wanted to gain 7-8 pounds in one night ;) The jello burger was cool looking.

There's a few things that looks good, like the toasted ravioli...but I have to say if they reduced the bacon and grease I would try some of it. Couldn't eat a lot though, even when I ate greasier food.
