Oldiron_79: Little Chocolate donuts, they've been on my training table since I was a kid.


They helped you win all those gold medals in Munich.

I'm curious what data that doctors and researchers are using to determine that Erica has an obesity "epidemic". This is purely anecdotal, but I'm 6' 220 lb male and according to BMI, I'm obese. But I'm in excellent shape. I work out regularly and eat well. No doctor has ever suggested that I lose any weight at all. If data is included in the report, it goes under the obese column.

If they aren't using BMI to determine this, then what are they using. I know we don't have enough body composition data on enough people to determine how many of the supposedly obese are really just more muscular.

devildog123: ReapTheChaos: Yet everyone blames fast food for making people fat. You want to know why america has an obesity problem, look no further than crap like this and your local grocery store.

No it isn't.  Overindulgence is.  I looked up the nutritional info.  If you ate 2 servings at once, it is only about 220 calories.  Add a cup of milk, you get about 350.  And that's with whole milk.  350 calories doesn't seem like a terrible breakfast.  An egg mcmuffin has 300 calories, not counting the hash browns.  The problem is people eating half a box at once, every day.


By that rationale, I can replace my meals with 3 tablespoons of kerosene.  As a very long winded farker who read a paleo book pointed out, there is more to the human body than simply burning calories.

I agree that moderation is key, but eating sugary cereal every day is still a bad idea.  Get a box or two a year.

This year for the holidays I made Capn Crunch treats instead of Rice Krispy treats.  We did one pan with Crunchberries all berries and one with Peanut Butter Crunch.  You want to put them in a ziplock first and use a rolling pin to soften them up a little first.  They were glorious.

Fruity Pebbles treats are awesome as well.  Might be in the neighborhood of all berries without having to soften them.

my entire airforce career was spent either on the verge of being in the "fatboy program" or, in my airforce reserves time, on the "fatboy program". granted, by the time i was in the reserves i HAD gotten a bit pudgy...
but when i went in active duty i was by far the thinnest i'd been since i was about 5 or 6. i am 5'8 1/2", and when i went into basic i was ~160lb (down from ~195 less than a year before). no muscle. i had cut way back on food intake, on top of having an outdoor job in southern arkansas heat, plus i had been playing clubs in a band. due to my small neck and ever-present love handles, i BARELY passed the "tape test" every year

Might have to try Fruity Pebbles next year, I think someone else suggested them as well.  Will have to to find a way to soften up the PB crunch a little better, they were tasty but there were still a few complaints of mouth murder.

I don't go in for all this processed breakfast cereal bs. it's just horrible that they can place it at eye level for the kids and claim its some sort of meal. That's why I only use real donuts in my breakfast cereal.

robohobo: This thread has urged me to eat a giant bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and in pouring my bowl(and packing my bowl) I took inventory of my cereal shelf, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey-Nut Cheerios, Marshmallow Mateys(bag version on Lucky Charms), Cocoa Krispies, Super Golden Crisp(yeah yeah, I know it's not called that any more) Frosted Flakes, Special K,, and lastly a box of Golden Grahams(how DO they cram all that Graham?*). I like cereal.


*one gram at a time


Sorry, you were looking in MY pantry by mistake.  Wait ... you don't have Trix listed there.  Carry on, then.

I will buy this new stuff the moment it hits the market. I just quit smoking so I can pretty much justify ANY caloric indulgence for the next six months or so.

And if you used meth in moderation, you'd be fine. The problem with most of this engineered junk is the same - it's designed to make you eat more and more and more. If you're eating whole wheat cereal with no additives, you're OK after a bowl. With this stuff you eat three times as much. Any dietitian who even mentions "calories in calories out" should be barred from ever working in the field again.

maram500: August11: My mom was a bit progressive for a mom in the 70s. She barred all sugared cereals from the house. She convinced other moms to follow suit. The kids in the neighborhood hated her for a while.

When I attended college, the dorm's cafeteria stocked a cereal I had never seen before: Captain Crunch. Good God.

Oh to return to those days, return to a cold autumn morning with a blood-orange sun sparkling through a stand of old oak trees, walking quietly to class, thinking about Milton's fields and Spinoza's God-space, absolutely positvely jacked out of my crackling mind on coffee and Captain Crunch.

Mmm, grad school...those sweet halcyon days of popping a couple Vivodin before getting blasted out of my head with triple espressos and an anti-anxiety pill.

Sure I was a little jittery, but by three in the afternoon I was finally coming down and ready for a tub of Frostred Flakes..and two sandwiches...and a swimming pool of gumbo... (I had the munchies is what I'm getting at.)


Ah espresso. I reached a high-water mark of about three pots of coffee per day in grad school. When I look back, I am surprised my heart did not explode.

Yes, yes, a thousand times, YES.

Who the fark is Jean LaFoote?


Cap'n Crunch's nemesis back in the '70s, always trying to steal that delicious Cap'n Crunch cereal, part of a nutritious breakfast! (And mouth shreddin'...)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_LaFoote

Don't you know anything about 70s food nemeses?

/Next you'll be asking me about The Duke of Doubt and Captain Crook.

The jingle "They are little, crisp and light / With a crunch in every bite/ New Donutz! They're dough-licious!" just returned from a thirty-year hiatus in my head

In related news, Dunkin Donuts recently announced two new donuts available in February: Heart shaped cookie dough and brownie batter donuts.
