low carb thickburger

yeah, this makes my stomach churn.


i took this photo at a rest stop in indiana.

as if that weren't enough, get a load of this:

"in Escondido, Calif., John Pontrelli, owner of Pit Stop Pasta, offers what may be a traditionalist's worst nightmare: "pizza in a bucket." It has all the pizza toppings placed in a crock or, for takeout customers, a metal can." (via theolympian.com)

now, here's what the wall street journal says about dr. atkins:
"the medical report listed Atkins' weight at the time of his death as 258 pounds. The 6-foot-tall Atkins would have been considered obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's body-mass index calculator."

The newspaper also said Atkins had a history of heart disease and heart attacks.

What happened to the good old food pyramid that served us so well?

i'm still eating carbs, dammit. i refuse to eat my pizza from a bucket.
