Mmm, bacon...
6 years ago
so?
6 years ago
I could live on 19 slices of bacon for every meal, but fast food, not me. I cook everyday while I drink.
6 years ago
Yeah, I lost about ten pounds when I cut out fast food for a while.
6 years ago
eat as much fast food as you want, just keep the fat intake high and the carbohydrate count low, and of course only diet drinks and you'll lose weight eating fast food... fact

yak speaks da troof

carbs are your enemies, fat can be burned easier.

its true guys, ive lost tons of weight since i went from 21 slices of bacon every morning to 2

based on the BMI charts that the government uses,90% of ALL humans are on the cusp of being overweight...go look at that fuckin stupid chart.Yeah there are tons of tons-0-funs running around,but buy that bullshit 67%.thats a fuckin joke.
6 years ago
According to BMI, Aaron Rodgers is obese.
6 years ago
Nowhere on this chart does it mention BMI.
6 years ago
where it says 67% are overweight it is talking about being 'overweight' using the bmi scale i'd assume...
6 years ago
BMI is bullshit. The system was invented by a 18th century Dutch mathematician who had no medical training.
6 years ago
yup its pretty dumb... but so is a lot of the things said on that infographic
6 years ago
Still, it does not mention BMI. For all we know, it could be based on body fat percent.
6 years ago
bmi was invented in the late 19th/early 20th century when medium height for an adult male was much shorter than today and when the majority of people worked in heavily intensive laboring jobs

this is literally the most false thing ever ;/
bacon doesn't make you fat at all... its fat and protein... as long as you aren't eating a shit ton of carbs your body will be burning through that bacon's fat like a machine and you'll have tons of energy...
fast food also doesn't make you fat, certain things that you can eat that are fast food does, but if you don't want to eat them noone is fucking forcing you to.

calories has nothing to do with why people are fat either... when will morons stop spouting shit like that :P
regardless of calories basically being bullshit tho, americans do not eat anywhere near 3700 calories a day... thats the equivalent of eating mcdonalds for every single meal + dessert.............
6 years ago
when whunu is consuming 85 trillion calories a day, it averages out at 3700....

`fat`can make you fat yak. it depends on how much you eat of it.
i did low carb for a while, i know what im talking about.
6 years ago
fat can not make you fat if you arent eating carbs... unless you are EXTREMELY insulin resistant... once you are in ketosis and your cells switch over to burn fat instead of the sugar processed from insulin... it would be very very difficult for you to gain 'fat'... i guess if you were completely imobile..

you only get fat if you do not take time doing physical activities after you eat,whats true that fast food is horrendous for your health because of the chemicals and hormones they pump to cows before they send them to the slaughter house and the silicone plastic powder that they smother with on Chicken McNuggets
6 years ago
the whole 'physical activities' has no real bearing on fat actually... at least nothing significant... neither is the whole 'fast food is horrendous for you because of the chemicals and hormones they pump into [the animals]'

your way of thinking is dated, time to do some more ""learning"", your metabolism is a strictly chemical process btw, physical activity doesnt manipulate it, if anything the less you eat the worse your metabolism is...


6 years ago
show me proof that fast food is less than likely to kill you,your way of thinking yak is almost ignorant when you refuse to look into the facts on fast food

almost all the meat that is purchased in supermarkets contain cancer causing chemicals and preservatives just do some thinking,why is it that the number one cause of death in the United States in males are heart attack and stroke,and nowadays stomach and pancreatic cancers are the most common cancers males are diagnosed with,nutritionists and scientists have evidence that these foods contain cancer causing ingredients
6 years ago
i think this thread just gave me cancer
6 years ago
i blame the man!

What about People that literally cant get fat...

that post goes for all of those who have a poor or high metabolism,its common sense when you think of it
6 years ago
and when you mix this with smoking,the stakes are even higher
6 years ago
and @Possum,I blame the FDA the same people who aproove these cancer causing foods aproove the medicine that makes you even worse,i never take aspirin not even once,i rely on god ole mary jane and remedies

sitting in front of a computer causes cancer....the air causes cancer... basically if you live long enough you will eventually get cancer..
6 years ago
did you know just by changing your diet,your immune can get even stronger from cancer causing chemicals like smog or chemtrails,ive read articles and seen documentaries of people who changed to vegan who are so healthy that they even slowed the aging process substantially, in one documentary this woman who is 74 years old who is vegan looks like someone who has barely hit 40

oh god, CSB is one of THOSE people...:(

hey i'm just stating facts here

There are hardcore vegans who wont even eat an apple unless it actually fell off the tree, because picking it off the tree would be cruel to the tree.
6 years ago
but if the apple falls, isnt that cruel to the grass it lands on?
6 years ago
i barely eat apples from supermarkets because you have farms pumping growth hormones on them
6 years ago
Probaly slightly cruel but by picking up the apple you are in a sense helping the grass by removing the apple..
6 years ago
i don't judge those who consume meat,because I was once a meat eater,i only share knowledge and what I know,and its up to you to acknowledge that this stuff is bad,we all once took a shit in our pants when we were small we aren't perfect

I have no problem with killing animals for food, but the way they treat animals in factory farms is just disgusting. NO living creature should be treated like that (except Bono). Granted, I'm a hypocrite - I still eat processed meat - but at least I recognize how unethical it is. Everyone has to decide where to draw their own line, but that's so far beyond any imaginable line of decency. Anyone who can see what happens in factory farms and not say "that's fucked up" is either in willful denial or a complete scumbag.

lol @ stating facts...
you cant say you are stating the facts when your facts are in fact fictional bucko..
6 years ago
ps there is nothing in a vegan diet that would 'prevent aging'.. quite the opposite actually, not enough fatty acids... i suggest you do some reseach that has actual scientific backing before you make completely retarded statements like youa re doing...
from now on if you are going to state something as fact, please link to us at least 5 independant scientific studies done 'proving' the theory you are trying to state as a fact, and try to make them have at least a few hundred people in the studies... ideally over a few years at least.
thanks.

possum made a funny with the mikebeez comment.
This saltyballlicker guy is a moron.I watched a few documentaries recently about this very subject...ive seen supersize me,forks over knives,fat,sick and nearly dead and fathead.Now i know thats not actually reading studies and whatnot but I dont have the time to sift through a bunch of jargon.Based on those documentaries which im sure are highly biased,Ive come to the conclusion that no one knows dick.

whats really sad though is that here in america its actually less expensive to eat at fast food places than to have a wholesome and nutritious meal 3 times a day
6 years ago
If you order off the dollar menu maybe. Rice, potatoes and vegetables go a long way.
6 years ago
i've lived on soup poured over rice for weeks at a time when i'm broke - costs about $5 a day
6 years ago
Yeah, Ramen noodles are a cheaper alternative.
6 years ago
Seriously, drained ramen, some oil, lemon juice, garlic and frozen vegetables add up to about $1. Healthier and more filling than a McDonald's cheeseburger.
6 years ago
dont forget the Goya!
6 years ago
Hell yeah, the Puerto Rican spices!
6 years ago
5$/day?? thats what i spend a day and i eat steaks and porkchops and chicken and stuff...
if i were to live just off of vegetables it would be under a buck a day easily
6 years ago
Well, figure that a strip steak costs about $10 here if bought at a market.

I'm overweight and I don't eat bacon or fastfood.
6 years ago
because you drink a lot of beer squidley... and as you are older your body becomes more insulin resistent so you end up storing fat easier

Thick boned?...

I notice that it's the southern states that appear to have the higher percentages of obese people.

cornbread, breaded chicken, breaded everything..
6 years ago
we're also pretty lazy
6 years ago
a sedentary lifestyle isn't actually able to be linked to obesity... although generally obese people are sedentary... that doesn't mean that they are obese because they don't move, it means they don't move because they are obese..

It would take me nine and a half days to eat nineteen slices of bacon. Americans are fat because they often live 30 or more miles from work and it takes two or more hours to go to work and back home. When we get home you tend to just sit and eat too much because fatigue makes you hungry.
6 years ago
fatigue doesnt make you hungry...
your body telling you that its hungry is what makes you hungry... and generally (for overweight people) its because they eat too much bread, starch, and sugars which is basically a physical addiction...
6 years ago
Im not talking about getting fat off the stuff but if you eat bacon all the time all that sodium might get ya.
6 years ago
