Xtreme Eating Awards
The Center for Science in the Public Interest recently released it’s Xtreme Eating Awards for 2014. It’s their list of the top food bombs available throughout chain restaurants across America.
“When French toast is ‘Bruléed,’ fries are ‘bottomless,’ and steaks are now garnished with not just one, but two Italian sausages, it’s clear that caloric extremism still rules the roost at many of America’s chain restaurants,” CSPI dietitian Paige Einstein said. “Two out of three American adults are overweight or obese and one in 10 adults has diabetes, thanks in part to The Cheesecake Factory, Chevys Fresh Mex, Maggiano’s Little Italy, and much of the rest of America’s chain restaurant industry.” These chains are the “winners” of the prize and are recognized for their 2500+ calorie meals. We embrace saturated fat more than most, but these meals are extreme by anyone’s standards.
Have you ever purchased one of these meals? What’s with the US and extreme eating? Post to comments.
