    I love the food police!

    I couldn’t finish ONE of these plates…and most likely wouldn’t order them either. YUCK!

    • vancomycin

      So, don’t order them then. I’ll have one of each.

  • Lyle Petersen

    Dude, fix the entry for the Chili’s burger.

    Sodium is not a problem: that’s old, debunked “science.”

    Animal fat is not a problem: that’s old, debunked “science.”

    Number of calories is only a problem if it’s sugars & carbs, and if you eat big slabs of animal protein with them they’re not as bad for you as eating them without protein.

    If you’re going to tell us how awful a platter is, at least use metrics that actually reflect, you know, awfulness.

      I wish I could upvote your comment more than once.

      But that would involve some real knowledge of human physiology and nutrition. Can’t have that when we’re busy saving people from themselves.

      100% correct dicentra. And now it is determined that the so called experts screeching about breakfast were wrong yet again. There is a sad segment of this population that feels the need to tell other people what is best with zero evidence to back it up outside of “gubment offical” stance. Then there is an even sadder segment that accepts it without question.

    • David Wellman

      Animal fat (i.e. 100% of animal fat is saturated) IS a problem. Most of us (99.999%) don’t live in conditions harsh enough for it to be a necessity. Those that think fat isn’t a problem based on some anecdotal evidence and misreported meta-surveys are mortgaging their future cardiovascular health for essentially happenstance. Don’t believe me? Autopsy a few cadavers and get back to me.

      • drightone

        You’re wasting your breathe on the “gubmint is out to get me” conspiracy theorists.

    Mr. Creosote says “Bring me the lot.”
