Supersized America Losing War on Fat（2）
A nationwide diner chain is, in its words, "celebrating" what it calls "baconalia" -- featuring 7 dishes in which, the company boasts, "bacon isn't just rationed or relegated to a side dish. Bacon is king." Believe it or not, one of those dishes is an ice-cream sundae, with not one but 2 layers of ice cream, bacon, and maple-flavored syrup.
We haven't even mentioned another chain's 1,420cal "Monster Thickburger" with its 107g of fat, 229mg of cholesterol, and 2,651mg of sodium. That's 651 more milligrams of salt in one sandwich than the FDA recommends we eat in an entire day.
And while you can find salad and vegetables in a nationwide chain's famous "endless buffet," you would have to have amazing willpower to resist its pizza, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese spread before you, not to mention its separate bakery and dessert buffet.
You'll wash it all down with a diet drink, of course, as a gesture to your commitment to healthy eating -- starting tomorrow.
