Sodium (1920 mg) or same as 180 Pringles potato chips
Calories 830 or same as eating 33 tablespoons of Oscar Mayer bacon bits
Fat calories 51 or same as 68 Aunt Jemima microwaveable pancakes

Fast food suicide, and dammit I want one. :eek7:

Once every couple of weeks you should treat yourself to things like that. Who knows? Ten years from now it may be found to cure something.

Already we know it cures low cholestoral levels.

Ok, I admit that I am not into the "computer lingo" as some...but it seems that more than once, hell lot of times, I that is seems that the small letter "o" does not seem to work when people type the word "owned". Maybe I am just assuming that it is the word "owned" and totally off....lol..Dunno...let me see if my small "o" key works....oooooooooooo. Oh well, maybe it is just something that the kids are all doing now...lol...sombody clue me in.

And, yes, I am hungry now looking at that buger. I lived in Bossier City while stationed at Barksdale AFB years back and ate at Whataburger from tme to time....miss it.

I had the baconator for lunch. With two bites left, I quit. Yummy but it definitely weighs more in my tummy than in my hands.

its yummy

I have a once a week wendy's habit. It's always a toss up between the baconator and the spicy chicken sandwich.
I'm pretty sure you may die soon or weight 304 pounds or both.

Plus I hear Wendy's has soggy bacon. :dunno:

All fast food in New Orleans is garbage.

The people working in those place are truly incapable. The stores try to make the food preparation as idiot proof as possible, but it still is never right.

I used to love Wendy's. Seriously loved it. But it has been years since I've had a properly cooked burger, or fries that are hot, or fries that haven't been cooked in oil that hasn't been changed in two weeks, etc.

That's if I get what I ordered in the first place...

I honestly just don't get it. There's nothing wrong with a roast beef sandwich from Subway with no cheese and no mayo. Or an Arby's roast been sandwich. Or those chipotle chicken wraps at McDonald's. Or a grilled chicken sandwich. Fast food doesn't have to kill you. No need for Baconators.

There certainly is something wrong with those things you listed. Sure, Subway sandwiches don't contain a lot of fats and such, but what they fail to tell you is how much sodium they contain. The roast beef sandwich you mentioned is has 1,000mg.

As far as a regular roast beef from Arby's (nevermind a large one) contains 950mg of sodium.

The chipolte chicken wraps has 820mg of sodium.

All of that salt=high blood pressure, which can lead to a whole host of problems.
