List doesn't show Carb amounts, and thus fails. Fat don't make you fat, bread makes you fat.

I don't do the fast food thing (vegetarian), but I do appreciate QT's attempts to at least provide a somewhat healthy option for when I'm driving and get hungry. My go-to snack is nuts or sunflower seeds, especially if I'm about to erupt into total-beeiatch mode because I'm hungry and no where near either home or somewhere with a healthy option.

QT's started carrying a celery, carrot and cheese snack pack, and they usually have apples and yogurt. Kinda sad that the healthier things can be found at a gas station, not a fast food 'restaurant'.

TheMega: I don't eat fast food very often.. and when I do, it is at a one-of-a-kind place that serves some of the best hot dogs I've ever had (and they are consistently good).


So, you prefer animal mouths and rectums over flesh?

Don't get me wrong, I like a good hotdog, but it's an occasional thing.

But, if I am going to hit McDonalds (busy day and simply need to stop someplace and eat something), I get their regular, single cheeseburger... only 30 carbs the last time I checked. As a borderline diabetic I can even have 2 of them and still be quite safe! For some reason, I can NOT stand their double cheeseburgers, even tho they SHOULD be the same, with just an added patty!

Don't get the Double Cheeseburger. Get the McDouble. I rarely eat the crap, but I know exactly why you cannot stand the Double Cheeseburger..... it has DOUBLE CHEESE on it. The McDouble has ONE slice of cheese - so there's less of the gagging that comes with eating Dirty Ronnie's slop.

I love to eat as well as anybody, but trying to consider anything on that list as remotely healthy is flat out retarded.

WarszawaScream: YOU make you fat. Stop eating all that shiat and you won't get fat.


Alcohol doesn't make you an Alcoholic, YOU make you and alcoholic. Stop drinking and you won't be an alcoholic?

Are we really, after decades of bad nutritional advice bought and paid for by the people who brought you high fructose corn syrup and subsidies on corn and grain, going to blame personal weakness on the obesity crisis?

Too easy.

Eating fat doesn't make you fat? What flavour kool-aid have you been drinking?

Kool-Aid is made from sugar, I don't drink it. Fat won't make you fat, Kool-Aid will make you fat.


Drinking the kool-aid refers to the Jonestown massacre.

Drinking Kool-aid while playing hour after hour of video games will make you fat. Drinking Kool-aid while running around the yard, playing kickball, and being physically actives for hours will not.

jaylectricity: If these are surprisingly healthy why is each one labeled as a guilty pleasure?


Because people, as a group, are dumber than a bag of rocks.

I like how only calories and fat content are listed for each item. No mention of carb content at all. This just in - fats don't make you fat.

I hear this all the time. Do people put a bowl of ketchup in the middle of the table and scoop it out with chips? Not usually. I wish there was a way to see if people are adding salsa to their food more than people are adding ketchup to their food.


Sort of like movie ticket sales. Why is the gross revenue the number we look at? Shouldn't it be number of tickets sold, since prices are far higher than they were decades ago? Or, even better, "% of the population who viewed the movie" (which is how TV rating points are calculated), since the population has grown substantially, too.

For an apples-to-apples comparison, our condiment metric should be "usage per meal" or "servings per consumer" or something like that.

Stupid salsa analysts are probably messing up their KPIs, too.

jaylectricity: Sybarite: Salsa is now America's most popular condiment (take that, ketchup).

I certainly add salsa to my food much more frequently than ketchup, but then I've never been a big fan of ketchup. Regardless, that statement has always been misleading because it's really only focusing on the total dollar amount of each product sold, and salsa is way more expensive than ketchup. If you go by total amount sold, ketchup beats salsa by something like 150 million pounds per year.

Yeah... I would say "Salsa" is americas favorite "dip", not "condiment". "Taco Sauce" might be up there as favorite "condiment", but, I agree with you.... "condiment" is something to "put on", not "dip into". Of course, ketchup is a bit of both, with fries & onion rings.

20 surprisingly healthy restaurant foods
By the Editors of Men's Health

Sesame Ginger Chicken Dumplings
- 1,801 mg sodium


I don't subscribe to Men's Health and I'm pretty sure that I won't now. Considering that 1800 more than the recommended daily intake of sodium, I'm fairly certain saying that it's not health, and it's just for the appetizer.

Yes, it's probably better than a deep fried salt-lick, but it's still not healthy.

So, items with 17-20+ grams of fat are healthy? And people wonder why they are fat.
