A friend sent me this link today: The Breakfast From **** (http://www.x-entertainment.com/articles/0744/).

The review of the breakfast is pretty funny (though a bit swear-y). I hope the guy really didn't attempt to eat it!

Holy cow!
ROLF that was the funniest thing I've ever read about food.
but it's all so true, I can't believe a person would eat that at one time @_@. that's so crazy.

Ew. Double Ew.

Seriously, I was unaware that simply looking at a picture of food could make me feel disgustingly full. Imagine what would happen if I ate it.

Again, I would have ate that, before. I LOVED t.v. dinner breakfasts (or just t.v. breakfasts?) But I would have REFUSED to look at the label. I can't believe when I look at something, and its D.V. is over 100% (for the bad stuff) and the cholesterol is over 200%!!! I've never seen that.

WOW! I agree with Miss Michelle. I cannot believe they are allowed to sell that stuff. It's appalling!

I was laughing so hard reading that. I think my husband thought I had lost it. I can not even believe that they can sell these things. But then again the people who are probably buying this stuff are not habitual label readers.

I am soooo going to the grocery store to check this (and the other varieties) out for myself! And to think...I would have totally eaten this several years ago without thinking twice. Makes the tummy hurt just pondering it.

64 grams of fat, 21 saturated... and I guarantee the other 43 grams is probably trans.

Ewwwwwwww!

The eggs, oh how can they even call those eggs? For that many calories, you could have about half a days worth of food that would be soo much better for you and less sodium, cholestoral and pretty much everything else.

Woe is america, eating that food is going to kill you like any other poison or drug. It might be slower, but how can things like that actualy be allowed to stay on the market. Even if you were to work off all the calories, like the "hungry men" who eat the food should be doing, theres no way your body needs that much cholestoral and sodium.

LOL yah the eggs were a riot! Still I do NOT believe the government has ANY business telling people what foods they can sell so wouldn't want to go there. It is just sad that people are stupid enough to eat them. And ya I've eaten my fair share of garbage "food."

LOL this reminds me of a song by my favorite music artist, Randy Stonehill... the song is called American Fast Food... lyrics are at:

http://www.delusionresistance.org/christian/stonehill/equator/equator05.html

You can listen to a sample of how it sounds at

http://www.mp3.com/tracks/4182785/dl_streams.html

It's a riot and I love to exercise to it. Great Big Stupid World is also great.

"You won't have to embalm me when my life is through
There are so many preservatives in what I eat
The job's being done right now for you"

Scary thought.

Okay, someone found something I WOULDN'T have eaten before my lifestyle change: bacon cereal. Now that, I wouldn't have eaten. But if I happened to have been a bacon fan, yeah probably. And everytime I see that Krispey Kreme burger, I say, "I would have eaten 2 or 3 of those." I remember going to Hardee's one time and eating 2 of their spicy thickburgers. I couldn't even look at one of those know. I'd rather eat carpet.

LOL I was pretty bad but I would NOT have eaten bacon cereal OR Krispy Kreme burger. Ewwwwww.. SUGARY donuts with hamburger? I actually tried a Hardee's monster thickburger once just to see what it was... GAG.. it was dried out and horrible!! I couldn't eat it.

Never had any of those monster burgers, but I did have a hamburger once from a place called Fuddruckers. I got the smallest one they had and it was still big enough to split between two people.

Did I eat the whole thing?

Yep, lol.

I used to love all the super bad for me foods - Bloomin' Onion - like 2000 calories, Qdoba nachos with cheese and sour cream and guac - like 1200 calories. That banana eggroll dessert from P.F. Chang's? 1860 calories, 235 carbs, 97 grams of fat, 43 saturated. I deliberately did not WANT to know.

There is a great little cafe in the office building I work in. Every morning for at least 4 years, my breakfast was a venti caramel latte with whip (550 calories, 30 grams of fat) and a cranberry walnut muffin (500 calories, 24 grams of fat). Au Bon Pain has a website, the caloric information for my daily breakfast was easily available - I just didn't want to look!! I'm just surprised I didn't get the breve latte (made with half and half!!).

I definitely look at this stuff now!

Has anyone heard of the Elvis sandwich... apparently Elvis had a favorite sandwich - and he would eat a whole one at a time...
1 loaf of unsliced bread (I don't know what kind - like french bread or what)
1 whole jar of peanut butter
1 whole jar of jelly
1lb fried bacon

(slice your bread, slather on pb & j and add bacon)
I think this sandwich had over 10,000 calories....
YUCK!

I think i gained a pound reading the article....lol.
The biggest burger I ever saw was at a place called "Mugshots" a bar and grill. I'm not sure how many pounds of beef it had, but it was 3 burger patties, three bun slices and several slices of cheese. it stood about 6 inches high. it cost $12, but if you could eat it all, it was free. I watched some body try, but we left before he finished. it was huge!!

This burger tops them all. It is served at a bar & grill in Pennsylvania. (I read this in a CNN article awhile back and just looked for it, because I couldn't remember the name of the bar and Eureka! I found it online)

"Dennis Liegey, the owner of Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, 120 northeast of Pittsburgh, said the "Beer Barrel Belly Buster" weighs in with 10 pounds of meat molded into a 20-inch patty on a specially baked, 17-inch bun.

The balance of the weight comes from 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, plus copious quantities of mayo, ketchup, relish, mustard, and peppers.

If you eat it within 3 hours, you get it for free. For everyone else, it costs $30.

mmmmm....mouthwatering, no? ugh.

Oh ya I've been to Fuddruckers! Quite a place... and I could eat a whole one too, along with the fries. :)

Oh my God in Heaven!! Could you just imagine the terribly horrible stomach ache you would get after eating that? Talk about feeling like acid is running through your instestines! I feel nauseous just looking at that.
Ugh, bacon cereal?! Holy GROSS!! My friend, Scott, always talks about wanting to make a steak out of just bacon. YUCK!

Have you seen the Turducken? It's not so incredibly bad for you but it's in the "who'd've thunk it?" catagory.

I actually tried making it one year for christmas. It didn't quite turn out the way the picture looked. It's a deboned chicken stuffed inside a deboned duck stuffed inside a deboned turkey. Plus various stuffings in between. After I had to go to urgent care to get a few stitches in my finger after the knife slipped while deboning the duck. I decided that turkduckens are interesting conversation pieces but dang sure aren't work the effort.

http://blacktable.com/turducken031217.htm
On Thanksgiving, Sonya Thomas, a slight, 36-year-old former Burger King manager from Alexandria, Va., won the first-ever turducken eating championship, wolfing down more of the chicken-stuffed-into-a-duck-stuffed-into-a-turkey faster than anyone else on Earth.

To win the Thankgiving Meal Invitational, the 105-pound woman ate nearly eight plates of the Cajun delicacy in 12 minutes, beating out some of the best -- and biggest -- members of the International Federation of Competitive Eating.

and another one with better pictures.

It looks a lot like something my husband would eat. He would have the calories burned off before lunch though. I hate that man's metabolism!!

I will confess that I had one once. I didn't like it much, just because TV breakfast food is never as tasty as the fresh equivalent. And I didn't finish it, though I ate most of it. But c'mon, don't people eat that much when they go to breakfast bufets? I wouldn't want that much on a daily basis, but I have done it before and will again -- though I guess not all the greasy stuff together at once.

Swanson Hungry Man dinners are the same way, btw. Many are 800 calories, with some over 1,000. I guess they're okay once in a while for the hungry, active man, though anyone eating them regularly would be courting a heart attack.

Harrypotterybarn, yes, I've laughed my way through the Gallery of Regrettable Food -- hilarious website! I especially love the parts about beef and jello. Laughed myself sick over parts of that website.

I never knew how unappealing food could be until I saw those things. That burger made me want to yak it up for whoever would want to eat such an appalling thing! EEEWWWWW!!! My biggest problem is junk food! Wow! No wonder Americans all have some sort of weight problem, we all at one point in time ingest large amounts of trash! Now I want to sit down with a bag of carrots and think happy thoughts! ;)
