Christ, my grandpa ate a pound of bacon each morning for breakfast, and a bowl of ice cream each night for dessert.

Of course he died during a heart operation.

At 94.

Mickey D's   wi--fi, clean potty and cheap coffee.  When on the road, for less than $1 it is the cheapest office you can rent.

\\\ Angus mushroom burgers are also pretty good.

crazydave023: TheGogmagog: YoOjo: I grew up somewhere with no McDs so I never had their food as a child, first time I ever went in one was at age 15, I wanted to use the bathroom but I was on LSD and the whole experience was so plastic (even the lighting and air in there seemed plastic) that I left and have never returned.
So, I'm that guy, I've never eaten McD, but not because I'm a smug hipster, more because I'm odd.

I avoided eating at Burger King until I was 19 or so.  Just so I could say I never ate at Burger King.  I guess I was a smug hipster before there were hipsters.

Funny you mentioned that because I have never eaten Taco Bell just because there is good Mexican Food in my city and have never needed to go to Taco Bell. Now I just won't go so that I can say to people "I have never eaten Taco Bell in my life".


I've never gone to Taco Bell because I wanted good Mexican food. I can go to a sit down restaurant or make it at home for that. Taco Bell is where you can spend $5 and fill yourself with refried beans and Dr. Pepper and you can get it in the drive through in under 5 mins.

The article has a few good points but a lot of troll.

Reality Check:

Article fails to mention the amount of fat and sugar in a double cheez-burglar. This is the real downside: low-grade carbs and lots of fat, especially the wrong sort of fat, and salt. Sure, there's about half a day's worth of protein in one. But it comes with about two or three times a day's worth of shiat.

If the burger has 7% of your daily fiber, where does the other 93% come from? I recommend kale.

Yes, we do cut back on meals when we know we are going to have a big calorie-heavy pig-out the same day, but we are cutting back on good food for bad, aren't we? Well, unless we eat nothing but bad food, that is. But where's the gain in swapping home-style junk food for restaurant-style junk food?

He's right about farmer's markets. The trendyites would love to drive us to them. Except that none of us have a car and the nearest farmer's market is too far to walk. And the upper middle classes won't really drive us to the farmer's market. We have to get there ourselves some how. How is not explained. Public transport? Maybe. If we could afford adding $6 to a grocery run. Bikes? Another luxury for many, especially the elderly shut-ins.

In the real world, many of the nutritionally deprived live in what are call "food deserts". They have no choice but to shop there as well, because the tony upscale food stores are in the tony upscale neighborhoods with the people who make a bundle advertising, marketing, subsidizing, etc., for corporations and goverments and universities.

McDonald's places its urban restaurants so you don't have to walk more than 10 minutes. There are three of them near me--guess how long it takes me to walk to one? Less than ten minutes for all three. There's another about 10 minutes on the other side of my workplace. WE HAVE MARKET SATURATION. I've seen maps which show the placement of restaurants and WalMarts and such, and in the continental US or Southern Canada, you can not escape them. WalMarts are beginning to move downtown with smaller stores, following the Boomers and their elders to the walkable and service-packed city neighborhoods (aka the Gold Coast and Hippie Heaven). Recently Sobey's, a large Canadian grocery chain bought Shoppers DrugMart, a pharmacy chain with a large food section and lots of urban locations. They know where the money is going: downtown, that's where the action is. I do a lot of my basic junk food and fast meals shopping in stores that are closer than the nearest grocery store, let alone the farmer's market.

Also, the farmers markets are full of non-local produce that is precisely the same as the stuff sold in regular stores. We do not grow bananas locally in Ottawa. In fact, most of our strawberries are marked "Grown in the USA" or even Mexico. It may be nice to wander the crowded aisles between the stalls and pretend it is 1587, but in reality you aren't getting many bargains or much local, organic, safe, clean, healthy food either. You are getting a shopping destination experience for those who can afford to pay and to load up the SUV.

In short, can't be done unless you shift the entire economy from insane-mode to health-mode.

The poor eat what I call  the Seven White Deaths because they lack 1) money; 2) capital (such as well-equipped kitchens); 3) capital (such as well equipped brains and libraries of cookbooks and stuff) and 4) capital (such as the power to change things to suit themselves).

The problem is capital. Especially the Capitol in Washington, DC. The White House can afford to preach a healthy upper middle class Dr. Huxtabile and Mrs. Dr. Huxtable lifestyle because they haven't really much say in what you poor farkers eat.

Neither side is realistic. Neither side is truthful. Neither side cares for anybody but their own well-padded asses, wallets and lifestyles. But, of course, the conservative crap-mongers are worse than the liberal crap-talkers. A hippie is not going to kill you unless he's on a bicycle or she's driving a 40-year-old Volkswagen.

Caveat emptor.

The only real way to fix the system is to rebuild it from the ground up.

Start with the oil wells, gas wells, and coal mines. You need to be able to walk to good food. You need food that is not half oil and half pesticides, fungides, herbicides, antibiotics and other things that are made from oil or natural gas. You need to make sure corporations and other users and absuers pay the US government what YOUR federal and state land is worth and what the water is worth--these are two big hidden costs (speaking of externalities).

Good food should be subsidized, not corporations. The small producer is usually the most efficient, cheapest and most concerned and honest producer. They are involved with farming for the love of farming and with customers they know rather than faceless corporation machines.

The liberals and radicals are mostly right about the evils of the big Industrial-Media-Government complex but not necessarily pragmatic and the conservatives are good at conserving--their pocketbooks and purses.

fredklein: CheekyMonkey: fredklein: CheekyMonkey: evaluating food solely on the basis of cost-per-calorie is akin to Car & Driver putting a particular model on their "Ten Best" list just because it comes in a nifty shade of red.

If they had a column talking about "Ten cars we evaluate based on their color", then it's not surprising that that don't look at anything other than... color.

He never said it was nutritious. He never said it was a balanced meal (unless you hold one in each hand. har har). He just said it was a good deal in term of $ per calorie. Which is true.

Yes, I understand that.  As I said, it's a stupid way of evaluating food.

As someone upthread stated, you'll die due to a lack of calories a lot faster than due to lack of proper nutrition, heart disease, or diabetes. Thus, calories are the most important part of food. Perhaps it's a little short-sighted, but what isn't these days?


Hmm.  Find me someone in the Daily News readership who's in danger of dying due to lack of calories (and isn't anorexic or bulimic).  We all understand your and the author of TFA's point, it just isn't relevant, if one isn't living in the Third World.

poot_rootbeer: Tommy Moo: There's a whole lot of people in this thread just waving their hands and getting angry and calling the author a troll because they have this vague feeling that he MUST be wrong, but they can't come up with a single reason why.

1. He uses calorie count as a sufficient indicator of nutritional value.  It is not.


It is exactly the definition of nutritional value if you're hungry, you know, like poor people. What a First World Problem attitude to smugly imagine that just because we live in a country with a lot of fat people that somehow having access to cheap food with lots of calories isn't good for health on a global scale.

fredklein: Dwight_Yeast: Personally, I'd rather the burgers had soy filler than "pink slime".

"Pink Slime" (and, as an aside, that's a perfect example how people's perception is influenced by the name of something. See also the dangerous 'chemically' sounding term Di-Hydrogen Monoxide) is nothing more than small scraps of... beef. It's too labor-intensive to re-trim it off the fat, so they heat it up to soften the fat, then spin it to make the scraps of meat come out. A quick puff of ammonia compound to make sure bacteria don't grow on/in it, and... That's it. The big kerfuffle about "pink slime" was pretty much cause by 1) it's name (which admittedly sounds gross), 2) the fact ammonia is used (in perfectly safe amounts) in it's processing, and 3) the fact that people started all sorts of lies about it (ie: 'they grind up tendons' or 'they soak it in bleach', etc).

So, if you have a problem with "pink slime", you have a problem with... beef.


Are you a shill or just disingenuous ?  The amonia is to kill the e colli likely present in the meat.  "Pink slime" is meat that the great meat processors of the 19th and 20th centuries, the ones who used all of the pig but the squeal, wouldn't have touched.  It's the last little bit stuck to the scraps of scraps.  The only reason for spending the time and effort to reclaim it and render it (relatively) safe is that it lets todays meat processors and fast food outlets make just a little bit more profit per pound.

All those recalls for e colli in frozen hamburger patties in the last couple of years?  They're due to the use of "pink slime".

Normal, grade-A beef of the sort that we've eaten for thousands of years is perfectly safe.  This is a food product made from waste, and it is inherantly unsafe, which is why people got pissed off when they found out they were being fed it without their knowledge.

I've never eaten at a Taco Bell either. No need to. Mexican food is relatively cheap in a regular restaurant. Burgers, on the other hand, can be $12 in a regular restaurant, making it easier to go to McD's, Hardee's, BK, Wendy's or just cook on the grill.

Lol. This is the same misleading tactic everyone with an agenda uses.  Compare the cheapest junk food you can find with the most expensive organic artisan seasonal produce. Conservative logic at it's finest.  A lot of conservatives in fark food threads do this too.

I'm a 190lb physically active guy and I eat mostly vegetarian for a total monthly grocery/food bill of about $220, which includes snacks, sodas at work, and lots of spices herbs for preparing meals.   It would be a lot less if I didn't love dark chocolate, curry and turmeric (expensive), thyme, etc. Sorry but that $36/day figure is too insanely stupid for any credibility.

And If all you care about is raw calories, then rice and pinto beans, are more calorie dense per dollar than McDs, without all the bad for you shiat.  They also make a damn fine burrito.  But he chose to ignore those because it doesn't fit the agenda.

Also look into nuts and seeds, if your goal is simply cheapo calorie dense foods that you can munch on the run, and requires no cooking or preparation time.   Peanuts, sunflower seeds, etc.  Fatty, but polyunsaturated healthy fats, no clogged arteries at age 40.

Yeah, so? E-coli can be present on any beef. With a cut of beef, it can be rinsed/washed off. With ground beef, it cannot be.

"Pink slime" is meat that the great meat processors of the 19th and 20th centuries, the ones who used all of the pig but the squeal, wouldn't have touched.


Um, no. It's just meat that's not very easy to get to. It's too labor-intensive to manually get it.

It's the last little bit stuck to the scraps of scrapsfat.

FTFY

The only reason for spending the time and effort to reclaim it and render it (relatively) safe is that it lets todays meat processors and fast food outlets make just a little bit more profit per pound.

Some might say it's so they waste less. Are you against less waste?

http://www.beefisbeef.com/faq-3/
Is it really necessary to try to get every small bit of beef from a carcass?

Necessary? No. Is it the right thing to do? Absolutely!

LFTB production makes it possible to have more of the leaner ground beef blends consumers desire at affordable prices. If LFTB were not produced, 850,000,000 lbs of lean beef a year would need to be generated from some other source to meet consumer demand. It would be like throwing away 5,700 cattle a day.


All those recalls for e colli in frozen hamburger patties in the last couple of years?  They're due to the use of "pink slime".


ANY ground meat product has the same problem.

Normal, grade-A beef of the sort that we've eaten for thousands of years is perfectly safe

...and that's all "pink slime" is- slivers of beef.

.This is a food product made from waste,

From previously wasted bits of beef, yes.

and it is inherantly unsafe

Nope.

, which is why people got pissed off when they found out they were being fed it without their knowledge.

No, people got pissed because they heard the term "pink slime", and their brains shut down.

I grew up with the author.  I went to junior and senior high school with him.  I never saw this side of him.  I'm still in touch and actually went to a baseball game with him at Fenway when we both lived in NYC at the same time in 2007.  We argued politics all the way back from Boston.  Kyle morphed into a conservative troglodyte sometime after he left the Army.  He's the smartest ignorant person I know.  He went to Yae and came out as a Conservative turd politically.  I'd still like to go see a ballgame with him again.  Note:  We saw a lot of movies together but I don't think we went to McDonald's much as kids.  He's got a great sense of dry humor.

Riiiiight. $20-30 for a week's worth of fresh veg from the farmer's market (which runs 3 times a week) and about $50-60 for small-bulk meat & commodities, for two people.

Wisconsin might be an absolute rancid shiathole when it comes to politicking and employment, but organic-food-wise you can live like a king for peanuts and pocket-lint.
Meanwhile, you get breakfast & dinner and McD's two days running and are halfway through the weekly budget already. This guy's a crock of shiat.

Poor quality control. (Sh)It happens. Now, if those patties were made of 100% "pink slime", then those recalls would not have happened. As has been pointed out, they use ammonia gas to kill the bacteria in "pink slime". Maybe they need to use it in 'regular' ground beef, too.

If 'unsafe-ness' was inherent in ground beef, there wouldn't be any safe ground beef.

Oh, and it's "E Coli", not "e colli". If you can't even get the (nick)name of it right, why should anyone listen to your opinions about it?

In the 60s and early 70s, there was a big crisis in the food industry when the medical community revealed that most cereals did not provide as much nutrition as the cardboard box they came in. Most meals were consisted of boiled potatoes and vegetables and over cooked meat so that any nutrition was cooked out of them. The big push back then was to provide nutritious meals. People were skinny in the 60s and 70s and it was the rare individual who was over weight and that was only by 20 or 30 lbs!

We've come 180 degree now and have meals that provide an abundance of nutrition so much so that we have to add meals that are low calorie to the menus and artificial sweeteners to drinks to lower the calories. Unfortunately, those that we considered fat in the 60s and 70s are now "normal" weight and fat people today are obese at 50 to 100 lbs over weight.

Or it results in a very convoluted order consisting of a patty and a slice of pickle with lots of ketchup.

blanchae: We've come 180 degree now and have meals that provide an abundance of nutrition so much so that we have to add meals that are low calorie to the menus and artificial sweeteners to drinks to lower the calories. Unfortunately, those that we considered fat in the 60s and 70s are now "normal" weight and fat people today are obese at 50 to 100 lbs over weight.


I guess I shouldn't feel so bad that I still often think of nutrition in terms of "the four food groups", even though I know the model I learned in grade school is outdated based on current dietary science.

Apparently, there's a whole generation that was taught there is only one food group, called "calories", and is incapable of understanding the many flaws with this model.

Zombalupagus: cwolf20: Nogale: FuturePastNow: The McDouble is shiatty. Spend an extra 40 cents and get the double cheeseburger.

What's the difference?

Double patties with a standard amount of cheese, vs a single patty with double the cheese

Actually the McDouble also has 2 patties. But it has only 1 slice of cheese while the double cheeseburger has 2.


Well, you said it better than the exact same thing I typed

or am I misreading it and there are 2 patties.  Things have changed.  A triple and double cheese were single patty at one point, so I vaguely remember while working at one several years ago and contemplating playing bongos on peoples' heads with hot grease dripping spatulas. Their screams would have been music.

cwolf20: Principal Clarinet: McDonald's tip:

Order the McDouble without the fake dehydrated onions.  Tell them to replace the dehydrated onions with sliced red onions.

Makes a big difference.

Or it results in a very convoluted order consisting of a patty and a slice of pickle with lots of ketchup.

Some workers can't understand English, and they were born and raised to understand it.



If they get it wrong, return it until they get it right.  100% of the time they'll get it right the second time around.

The Double Cheeseburger is simply a McDouble that has two slices of cheese instead of one. So you pay an extra 30 cents for a slice of cheese.

(who's on first?)

My brain on decongestants and the last time I noticed a double cheese or triple cheese was when I worked in 95 or 96.  And it was usually wrapped, and after seeing the feeding trough mobs when triple cheese came out, I never ate them.  McDouble is the first time eating one. So naturally I would be insane and think they were different some other way.

When I worked AT MCDONALDS in 95 or 96.  clarification is odd today

Or was it 97 98... it all ran together and the supervisor told me after I quit that she was surprised it took me that long.  The job required sarcastic biatches and assholes, and I wasn't either one.  Her words.

AverageAmericanGuy: If I eat at McDonald's, I will invariably be shiatting liquids later that day.

I'll pass. Thanks.


You should see a doctor about that.  That's not normal.
