HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH?

The new burger at Wendy's - the Baconator. Sounds like something Governor Arnold would come up with. The Baconator: It will clog your arteries. Get one today. Eat a dozen, get 10% off of your next heart by-pass.

A Baconator is worth 830 calories out of a 2,000 calorie per day diet.

51 grams of fat.

22 grams of saturated fat.

1,920 grams of sodium.

Pile a super-sized order of French fries on this order. That would pretty much do it. Get out the Roto-Rooter. Them arteries - they be clogged, Dude.

How much is enough food at one sitting? One Baconator meal with fries could feed a family of four in a Third World Country - and they'd be happy for it.
I recently read about a culture who has the philosophy of eating until they're 2/3's full. Then they stop. Nice idea.
In this land of milk and honey, my goodness, is there any end to our gluttony? For crying out loud, how much is enough?
How much is enough?

I have neber eaten at any MacDonald's or American Berger Or Wendy's, or anything like that...It AMAZES me that these places do so well when there is so much info out there about how bad all the stuff in the food they serve is for you. What's up with that? I guess it is what you said. Gluttony. This is a culture of 'eat everything you can in sight'...as if everyone was starving....! Less really is More, in this case. Less bad food, more Health!

I have to agree. I saw the commercial for that baconator and nearly gagged looking at it. All that went through my mind was grease and then bacon on top of that! Ew.
Believe me..I am not a "healthy" eater, but really? Enough is enough.

Sandi: I'm with you - not a healthy eater - but close but two burgers, cheese and bacon is over the top.

Lea: It can sense fear? Yeah! Good intro to the film - THE BURGER THAN CAN SENSE FEAR! EAT IT OR IT WILL EAT YOU!
