Shrimp pasta from The Cheesecake Factory, steak and eggs from IHOP, and bacon cheddar double cheeseburgers from Johnny Rockets´, among other dishes that restaurant chains serve, may sound appetizing, but they are also loaded with thousands of calories and plenty of saturated fat, sodium and sugar. In fact, those dishes come with so many unhealthy ingredients that they have been dubbed Xtreme Eating ´winners´ on this year´s list from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, which researches unhealthy foods and beverages.[Snip] ‘We think this year that this is the worst of some of the worst,’ Jayne Hurley

Comments:
So Little Caesar´s didn´t make the list. Their current flyer tempts via a free 2-liter Pepsi with purchase of any pizza (the deep-dish stuffed crust?) and crazy bread combo. If that´s the cinnamon bread it´s carb city--plus "white icing for dipping." Golden Corral boasts of their latest treat: cotton candy. Yep, all okay as a once-in-a-while treat but I know people who eat such foods every day. No, I don´t advocate Bloomberging and I don´t have the answers. Maybe teaching first-graders about carbs and fats instead of songs praising Our Dear Leader?

I´ve never eaten any of these foods. I might, but not a whole portion.

Echoing #2, while I appreciate the efforts of all L.com posters everyone should steer well clear of any story involving CSPI.

They are the very definition of leftist radicals: vegans/vegetarians who suffer from the usual DC malady of being unable to mind their own business. They have no scientific, dietetic or any other expertise, only an agenda.

Note that they never propose a solution, they only identify ´problems´ i.e. the targets of their anti-capitalistic nonsense.

Debating their choices is a fool´s errand since they aren´t interested in nutrition, only in agitation.

"The Cheesecake Factory´s Bistro shrimp pasta: This dish of crispy battered shrimp, fresh mushrooms and arugula tossed with spaghetti in a basil-garlic-lemon cream sauce"

The meal includes fresh arugula! What´s the problem??

Does anyone ever eat the entire order of restaurant food any more? The size of the portions is a scandalous waste.

That Mac and Cheese sure looks tempting, though, doesn´t it?

We have a restaurant that puts out the best Spicy steak and cheese sandwich - loaded with thin cut tons of steak, melted cheese, hot red and green chilis and mushrooms - it is about a foot long - however, I eat it for 3 meals. It´s that big and yummy. I also have romaine lettuce with it - mind your own business and the idea of the Brits commenting on our food is to laugh at. From what I hear, their food is dreadful.

I remember when this group of bozos came out with how fettucini alfredo was a heart attack on a plate. Well most people don´t make a daily diet of places like Cheesecake Factory, etc. And I have always made at least two meals out of what I order at any restaurant. That is why God gave somebody the inspiration to invent doggie bags. Most people I see using them are sensible that way. We don´t need libs interfering in our lives.

Sorry, as a guy who likes to cook, my BS meter is pegged. I´ll take the easy one first, the "11 teaspoons, two days worth of sugar" for the IHOP breakfast.

Hash browns have no sugar, neither do eggs. You can´t count the syrup on the pancakes, as that is something you add on yourself--and there is sugar free syrup right on every table at my IHOP. There is no sugar in the chicken. I have several recipes for Chicken Fried Steak with gravy, and not one of them have sugar in them.

Next, Chilis full rack of ribs. The highest calorie count I could find for a full rack of bbq ribs is in fact high, 1370, but in fact I have seen them for 1/3 less easily, depends on cut of meat and sauce. But lets take that for what it is. Hot cinnamon apples is about 250, fries about 400 for a serving larger than what appears here. So easily that 2330 figure is 300-600 calories too high on an admittedly high calorie dinner. Not to mention most people get 1/2 rack, which would make this dinner 1335 calories.

I hate BS in news!

#9, it´s a U.S. group commenting on U.S. food. Had it been British, "Center" would have been spelled "Centre." Yes, British food had a bad reputation for years after WWII because of shortages and rationing--not fully canceled until 1957 and because of a lower income for about ten years after that.

These days British food is quite good (see the recipes in the Telegraph´s food section)--but there are still numerous carb-heavy caffs around and people can´t seem to lose their addiction to fish and chips, pork pies, bacon sandwiches or trifle.

Nine gut-busting meals out of hundreds of thousands of good quality restaurants in the U.S. I detest stories like this. You can even get a lowfat, healthy meal at Wendy´s or McDonalds, if you choose wisely. The Brits have no room to talk - with their bubble & squeak or whatever the heck that greasy dish is.

Easy, folks! The OP´s been here a while. That said, I like a lot of the food we´re being warned against in this article. I won´t hesitate to enjoy it as part of a well-balanced life that includes equal parts common sense and fun.

On the topic of British food, my own experience was pretty good. London had more than it´s fair share of wonderful restaurants, and scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam were delicious. Parenthetically, I found produce in British grocery stores to be fresher and more flavorful than produce bought stateside.

University of East London bans segregated
Muslim event from its premises
Telegraph [UK], by Damian Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000.

We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
