...64 grams of fat, 2,090 milligrams of sodium, and enough cholesterol to kill anything that's ever lived...

Sounds more like a "Two-Day Breakfast." So you only eat this one serving and you're good for 24 hours.
Nice diet if you can stick to it.

In a on and off again attempt to get my blood pressure and cholesterol down I have become a label reader and that takes the Trophy of Death.

My friend keeps asking me if sausage is butter flavored or not. It's even funnier because he's kind of not kidding...

Do you think people would buy my "Free-range Grease" diet if I told them they'll lose weight because everything just slides on through before it can be absorbed?

Methinks you can get similar faire from your local iHop:

Last time I did an iHop breakfast I didn't want breakfast for 2 weeks...

Well, at least they're honest about the serving size and the food values associated with it. Lots of products out there just as bad for you, but they try to play it off like there are 2-3 servings in the box when they know full well that you are going to eat the whole thing.

No, not for everyone, but you know what? Some people actually require this amount of energy to maintain themselves. Not that an athlete should eat this particular meal, but some consume more calories than this in one meal. Heck- look at fast food, many 'value meals' can meet this number of calories and fat, sodium too.

Yeah, it's sick when you get the numbers like that, and no I probably wouldn't eat it either, but in the grand scheme of things this is not that bad.

Almost 100% RDA for fat calories? Uh, yeah -- it IS that bad.



It is what it is.

104% of saturated fat. 2.09 grams of salt. that is beyond scary. I don't have anything against salt, or health issues. but I just can't eat that much without a gallon of water with a meal like that. And even then I would be peeing crystals.

You guys sound pretty health concious, but I guarantee you there are people out there that just have no idea how much sodium and sat fat they consume, and this is just a drop in the bucket.

"and this is just slop in the bucket."

That is what you meant to say, right?

This post might seem to prove apologists are a dime a dozen. Mike is no doubt firmly planted in the camp that denies global warming is anything but a natural flux and obesity is a result of genetic coding and can be fixed with a littl liposuction.

I don't really know what your point is, but all I was trying to say it that-
YES, this food is really bad for you,
BUT- there are other foods that are just as bad (if not worse) that try hard to pretend that they are not.

No doubt RgrF is an intelligent individual that would understand my argument and would not attempt to make a false generalization about me.

What I'm still trying to figure out is how they got 690 mg of cholesterol in there. Wait, I just looked it up. A medium sized egg contains about 187mg of cholesterol. If they used about three of those then all the bacon and sausage, plus whatever's in the pancakes...

A guy I work with eats like a horse. He is also a marathon runner.

When we go to Cracker Barrel, he gets this and it does not come close to filling him up:

Country Boy Breakfast
Just loosen you belt and prepare to feast on your choice of Country Ham or Pork Chops, three eggs, Fried Apples, Hashbrown Casserole, Grits, Sawmill Gravy, Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits, real butter and the best preserves, jam n' apple butter we could find.

He ate 22 (and I have video on the web, somewhere, too) Buffalo Wild Wings' Chicken LEGS (not puny wings...LEGS) in groups of four ever increasing HEAT levels, including one that came with a skin/eye irritation warning label. And he was hungry/snacking again after one hour.

One deep fried chicken leg is listed on one nutritional site as having 315 calories and 17g of fat and 10 mg of cholesterol. So, that should be about 7,000 calories (with sauces) and 374 g of fat and 220 mg of cholesterol.

Although Popeye's Chicken Leg says 40 mg of cholesterol, which would make the result 880 mg of cholesterol.

Maybe these are a source of global warming?

'Gross' doesn't begin to describe this.

I'm a Lifetime member of Weight Watchers, on maintainence. According to their calculations (using an equation of calories, fiber and total fat), one of these would supply more food than I require to maintain my 200-lb weight for about 3 days of eating. (Not lose, but maintain.) And even at that, the fat content is completely off the scale.

I'm all for taking personal responsibility for what anyone puts in their own mouth but Swanson should be forced to take this monstrosity off the market before it kills somebody.

check the sodium content of jarred spaghetti sauce some time.
often 1000 mg, typically 700-900 mg.

check out the sodium content of the Swanson Hungry Man XXL Roasted Carved Turkey:

nice BK Triple Whopper nutrition, too:

and there is absolutely no need to add that much salt. I guess it is because it is the cheapest herb/spice they can use, and in the case of fast food, they want to sell more drinks.

It really is gross thinking about all the fat, unless you were Homer Simpson...

Folks, you get more salt than that from a typical serving of pretzels. Any idea how little two grams of anything is? It's the fat and cholesterol that is the real health concern here.



It is what it is.

agreed...

hard salted pretzels : Sodium/814 mg/34%

not bad for 1 serving, only 1/3 daily recommended!

my previous links:

Triple Whopper w/cheese 1600 mg (2x the pretzels)
Swanson XXL dinner 3600 mg (more than 4x the pretzels)
