Now THAT’S some cholesterol

Share

Take the worst possible breakfast foods you can imagine and put them together in your head. Chances are it’s about only half as bad as the Hungry-Man All Day Breakfast. In this 1 1/2 lb. monstrosity of a meal you get three sausage links, two hash browns, some seriously foul looking bacon, three pancakes, and eggs.

But the nutrition facts are what are truly astounding: 1030 calories (over half of them from fat), 64 grams of fat (98% RDA) of which 21 grams aresaturated (104% RDA), 2090 mg of sodium (87%), and 22 grams of sugar. Ready for the kicker?

This “All Day Breakfast” has 690mg of cholesterol. If you’re keeping track, that’s 231% of the recommended daily allowance (which most people agree is already too high of an allowance). Perhaps the “All Day Breakfast” should be called the “2.3 Day Breakfast.” I think a diner breakfast would be like health food next to this mess of meat and greasy sludge.

The above linked article sums it up well: “Holy shit. Holy holy HOLY shit.”
