Don't Go to Food Extremes

On July 15, 1972, Fat Furnace Creek in Death Valley, California, had a ground temperature of 201 degrees Fahrenheit.

In late July of 2013, in Siberia, the temperature hit 89.6 F, melting the permafrost.

But those extremes don't come close to the over-the-top number hit by the Whole Hog Burger with sides, from Uno Pizzeria & Grill: 2,850.

That’s 2,850 calories in one horrifying heap of hamburger, bacon, sausage, pepperoni, prosciutto, four types of cheese, mayonnaise, fries, and onion rings — plus three days' worth of saturated fat (62 g) and 9,790 mg of sodium.

That humongous lump came in as numero uno in the Center for Science in the Public Interest's Extreme Eating Awards.

But other food chains made the list with offerings that also read like an engraved invitation to fatty liver disease, diabetes, heart attack, obesity, cancer, brain inflammation, and dementia.

For instance, Sonic's RT 44 Grape Slush with Rainbow Candy contains 970 calories and the equivalent of 1 1/4 cups of sugar.

FYI: A moderately active 50-year-old man, standing 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing in at 165 pounds should take in 1,650 to 2,550 calories daily; a moderately active woman, 50, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 142 pounds should get 1,340 to 2,075 calories.

If you have diabetes, heart disease, or kidney problems, you should get 1,500 mg sodium a day, maximum.


In the 0.5 percent who are salt-sensitive? Dodge sodium altogether. The rest of you? Just be careful.

And for everyone: No trans and few saturated fats; lots of 100 percent whole grains, healthy fats (olive oil) and omega-3s (salmon); and 5 to 9 servings of produce daily.

Then you won't become inflamed like Fat Furnace Creek.
