I'm sure McD's was part of his diet of moderation

A friend pointed this out to me the other day…

McDonald’s website has some pretty interesting (and predictable) frequently asked questions and answers.

Here’s my favorite:


Frequently Asked Questions About McDonald’s USA Food & Nutrition

Q: Can McDonald’s food be part of a healthy, balanced diet?

A: Yes. Many nutrition professionals agree that McDonald’s food can be part of a healthy eating style based on the sound nutrition principles of balance, variety and moderation. One key to a healthy diet is to moderate, not eliminate, favorite foods because eliminating foods is rarely successful long term. In fact, the American Dietetic Association says all foods can fit into a healthy diet and what’s most important is eating a balanced diet over time, rather than focusing on any one food or meal.

McDonald’s varied menu and range of serving sizes make it easy to fit our food into a balanced diet and to create a range of meal combinations that fall within recommended guidelines for calories, fat and other nutrients.

McDonald’s would no sooner consult “nutrition professionals” (whatever the hell that means) than they would hire professional writers to answer questions like this in such a vague and McDonald’s-centric point of view.  OF COURSE the answer is yes.  Was there any doubt?

OF COURSE they wouldn’t condone eliminating anything from ones diet.  Why would they?  If anyone were to do such a thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if fast food was the first thing to go!  As I’ve said before, anyone who argues that moderation is a better choice than elimination of something that many would agree is not the best choice is only doing so because they can’t let go of their cravings.

As for the menu selections mentioned that fit into a balanced diet, take a look at their meal suggestions that:

…many nutrition professionals agree can be part of a healthy diet based on the sound nutrition principles of balance, variety and moderation.

Notice that most of the meal suggestions feature either a small juice, milk, or diet soda as the beverage.  Also, you won’t find a quarter pounder on there anywhere…  or a big mac, or a bacon cheeseburger (the items in which they spend most of their advertising on).  Fries are mentioned once, as a small size, with the following asterisk: 

*To reduce sodium, French fries may be ordered without added salt

I would love to hear of someone trying that while in the drive-through.

Flame Body Spray GiftYes.  It’s real.

I suppose it’s some sort of marketing for Valentine’s Day coming up. 

Prepare yourself for the promotion’s website.  It will give you nightmares.  Actually it had me cracking up…      I think the “King” character is hilarious and creepy as hell at the same time.

From the site:

Behold the scent of seduction, with a hint of flame-broiled meat.”


Keep clicking through.  It has music, and may not be safe for prude workplaces. 

Go here if you want to buy it!  Enjoy…

I saw this bumper sticker last night.


I always enjoy reading bumper stickers, and I have to wonder the thought process or the kind of person that puts some of these little advertisements/free speech exclamations on the back of their car…  Not to say I don’t have any, but some I read crack me up for many reasons.

I never thought that stupid camera phone would actually be of any use.

Fat people love bacon!

This is the sixth part in a series dedicated to fat people’s love for bacon.  At least once a week  Whenever I get around to it, I will post either someones odd use of it in a food dish, or just a new and inventive way to bring bacon to our palates.

Perhaps this post would be better labeled:  Ode to Bacon Salt.

Part 5 introduced us to Bacon Salt, and I wanted to first let you know that I purchased it and tried it!  I’ll have to say that it’s not bad!  As evidence on their blog, I can imagine quite a few uses for this bacon fairy dust.  

However, nothing could have prepared me for the next additions to the Bacon Salt empire.  The empire that will soon take over the sodium laden, MSG filled flavoring market.

Addition #1:


Baconnaise!  Just like the salt, this one is also vegetarian and kosher.  Is it possible to have an erection and a heart attack at the same time?  I can’t wait.

Addition #2:


Yup, that’s no joke.

I wonder if more men or women would buy this one?  Perhaps more women would buy it so as to be more kissable to cured meat loving males…  That reminds me of this commercial:


I would not be surprised if the B-Salt geniuses come out with a bacon perfume very soon.  

OH!  One more thing…  Don’t forget the holidays are coming up.  It’s time to start gift shopping!
