Maybe I should give up eating

The list if things I really shouldn’t ever be eating is getting too long to keep track of.  Now, here are twenty more, courtesy of MSNBC Interactive – The 20 worst foods in America :

17: Worst ‘healthy’ burger

Ruby Tuesday Bella Turkey Burger

1,145 calories

71 g fat

56 g carbs

We chose this burger for more than its calorie payload: Its name implies that it’s healthy.

The Truly Healthy Choice: Skip burgers entirely (few at Ruby Tuesday come in under 1,000 calories). Instead, order a 9-ounce sirloin with a side of steamed vegetables, and keep things under 1,000 calories.

If anybody wants me, I’ll be in hiding with a big bag of baby carrots.

See, this is what gives people ideas about putting nutrition info on menus and whatnot. It isni’t because the diet nannies are trying to micro-manage what you eat and drink. It’s because if you only knew what exactly you have been eating, it would blow your ever-lovin’ mind.
