don't they have to add salt to the cheeseburgers to even out the sugar so it's not listed as a dessert or some shit?

I just read something revolting in the paper today, and thought of this thread.

Apparently Burger King in NYC has a new burger: The Pizza burger. It consists of a nearly 10 inch piece of bread with four hamburgers on it, then slices of pepperoni, marinara sauce, cheese and pesto sauce. It has a grand total of 2000!!! Calories in it, which is the advised daily amount for an adult female. And it also had about 140 grams of fat in it.

It disturbs me that people make this shit. It disturbs me even more that there are people who will buy and eat this.

ETA: Oh, it got even MORE calories and fat than our paper said!

I think so too. Insects will eat organic food sources. Thanks for sharing.

Well I'm not sure you would want those calories mate, that won't give you any muscles. Only a huge beer belly and clogged arteries.

I think there are fewer calories in like 4-5 slices of actual pizza.

Turns out this was mostly hysteria.

I still can't eat the fast food stuff. Maybe it is just me or my own dietary needs. But, the last time I ate a fast food burger. About a year ago, it made me sick. I was up all night.

I do much better with a bland diet and home cooked foods. I have eaten that way since childhood. Must be the Irish influence. Since, that is where my family came from.

BTW...I make a good Irish stew! It's not hard, it just takes time.

I don't know. I only eat turkey burgers. But, the ones of beef that I make at home and for my husband are from the leanest ground beef. He says they don't give him any heartburn or stomach indegestion. I always cook them in water. I don't add any fats or oils.

Hopefully, they are healthier. I eat them once per week. I am becoming more aware about what is in my food. Thanks to everyone posting here.
