Bad internet breakfast advice helps Americans kill themselves

20th September 2008

Scary. 91% of voters found this horrible misleading article on Yahoo to be helpful. I suppose people who take that advice should blame mostly themselves for trusting an internet article but I still can’t shake the feeling that Men’s Health and Yahoo are also responsible for giving people such horrible advice.

What kind of health guru tells people to go to Burger King and eat…

Eat This Instead!
Burger King Egg & Cheese Croissan’wich
300 calories
17 g fat (6 g saturated; 2 g trans)
740 mg sodium
26 g carbs

That’s some of the shittiest advice I’ve ever seen in my life. A good brekfast = organic whole wheat toast, plain natural oatmeal (the kind you boil and you can mix it with nuts, cinnamon, honey, or fruit), or eggs (not cooked by a fast food joint).
