A Student of History

1000 Calories under 1 Bun

Ok, Ok, I know this has nothing to do with history, but I had to post this info which I got from “Nutrition Action Health Newsletter.” As one of their list of “10 Foods You Should Never Eat,” there’s this whopper (pun intended):

Unless you’re suicidal, why on earth would you want to wolf down a Burger King Quad Stacker – 4 hamburger patties, 4 slices of cheese, 8 strips of bacon, plus sauce and a bun? That’s half-a-day’s calories (1,000), one-and-a-half-days’ worth of saturated fat (30 grams), 3 grams of trans fat, and more than a day’s sodium (1,800 mg).

1000 calories!?!?! Unbelievable.  And 8 slices of bacon?


 I’m sorry, but that sandwich is just wrong. 


  1. In my limited experience, Totino’s party pizzas are extremely popular with impoverished graduate students. And for only 99 cents, they’ll provide you with 742 calories and 42 grams of fat! (I checked my freezer.) At that rate, you could eat for just $2.97/day. Pretty economical if you ask me, but you might not make it to your dissertation defense.

  2. I think BK gives you a shovel with the sandwich, to dig your own grave….
