Is this really the greatest food in human history?


This news is going to make Pete ecstatic.

He will be able to claim that his diet,?is in fact, the greatest food in human history and has scientific proof of that now.

What is ?the cheapest, most nutritious and bountiful food that has ever existed in human history? Hint: It has 390 calories. It contains 23g, or half a daily serving, of protein, plus 7% of daily fiber, 20% of daily calcium and so on.

Also, you can get it in 14,000 locations in the US and it usually costs $1. Presenting one of the unsung wonders of modern life, the McDonald?s McDouble cheeseburger.

The argument above was made by a commenter on the Freakonomics blog run by economics writer Stephen Dubner and professor Steven Levitt, who co-wrote the million-selling books on the hidden side of everything.

Dubner mischievously built an episode of his highly amusing weekly podcast around the debate. Many huffy back-to-the-earth types wrote in to suggest the alternative meal of boiled lentils. Great idea. Now go open a restaurant called McBoiled Lentils and see how many customers line up.

There will be outrage about this before dinner time

I can hardly wait for so-called obesity experts to start their weapons-grade howling about this little gig.

Imagine spending a winter Saturday driving north to south, east to west – criss crossing New Zealand’s largest city for the glory of downing 50 McDonald’s cheeseburgers in the fastest time possible.

It sounds like the perfect challenge for anyone looking to combine their love of Auckland weekend traffic and competitive fast-food eating.

Those who complete?the 50-burger challenge will consume a whopping 580 grams of fat in a 24 hour period, more than five times the recommended daily intake.

Each burger also contains 265 calories ? a total of 13,250 for the day. An average adult male needs about?only around?2500 daily calories to maintain his weight.

Auckland student Jack Alexander is challenging all McDonald’s lovers to take part in the pub-crawl style homage to the humble cheeseburger, with the inaugural Amazing Cheeseburger Challenge, set for the first week of July. ?? Read more »

Fattism is a legitimate form of discrimination

James Delingpole gets stuck into fat bastards.

Breitbart London?s Executive Editor, James Delingpole, has appeared on the BBC Daily Politics to attack moves to award fat people?minority status. He said that he hoped fat people would be ?stigmatised? rather than government stepping in.

Delingpole claimed some of his greatest idols were fat, including Eric Pickles and Jabba The Hut but they were still a burden on the taxpayer.

CAUTION: ?Video Auto Starts (we try to normally not do that, but… there you go) ? Read more »

NZ Junk food manufacturers in for tough 2015


Companies making ?junk food? look as though they?re in for a tough year.

If it wasn?t the Aussie council seeking to ban chips, chocolate and sugary drinks from parks, it is now UK ?experts? calling for a ban on junk food adverts.

The usual health experts suspects are calling for bans on junk food TV ads, saying they shouldn?t be aired before 9pm in the hope that parents will stop getting pressured by their kids wanting ‘unhealthy food and sugary drinks’.

The British Heart Foundation is saying ‘seven in ten parents with children aged four to 16 have been pestered by their children to buy junk food they have seen advertised on TV.’? ? Read more »

This is why we need a FBT

This is why we need ?Fat Bastards Tax, that taxes the fat bastard not the fat or the sugar.

I’ll just bet fat bastards will soon start demanding the NZ government funds this new drug.

A treatment of injections that can help people lost a stone more than they normally would by dieting or exercising more has been approved by health watchdogs.

Liraglutide, which has been described by doctors as life-changing, could be available on prescription in months.

Slimmers typically lose almost a stone more than they would by simply watching how many calories they consume and doing more exercise.

Trials showed that some severely obese patients lost so much weight they were able to abandon their wheelchairs and walk normally for the first time in years.

Liraglutide also lowers blood pressure, raises good cholesterol and prevents diabetes.According to its makers, Novo Nordisk of Denmark, the drug even produces a ‘feel-good factor’, making dieting a pleasure.But some experts have already warned it does not provide a long-term solution to the growing problem of obesity in Britain.

Novo Nordisk will apply for it to be prescribed on the NHS after Friday?s ruling by the European drugs regulator that it is safe and effective.

There are fears however that Nice ? Britain?s drugs rationing body ? will judge it too expensive for routine use on the NHS.

Liraglutide costs from ?2.25 a day, which is roughly double the price of Orlistat, the only other prescription diet drug.

Why is it that Labour parties seem to have dud ideas?

Labour is dead set useless, they focus on retard policies and treat voters like their policies.

In the UK it isn’t much different, hell, they even share policies with New Zealand Labour.

Ed Milliband is proving to be just a savvy with the voters as David Cunliffe.

Junk food adverts aimed at children face being banned before the watershed, under proposals announced by Labour today.

Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said too many children were ?exposed to adverts for foods high in fat, sugar and salt? ? particularly during popular Saturday night shows like the X Factor.

The proposal was contained in a raft of public health measures announced today aiming to tackle Britain?s obesity epidemic.

Yeah because the nanny state is always a vote winner.

Mr Burnham said Labour would impose ?a time watershed for advertising of products high in sugar, fat and/or salt? if measures cannot not be agreed with regulators to dramatically cut the number of junk food adverts aimed at children.

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt took to Twitter to condemn the proposals.

He said that ?banning and legislation not always the answer? and that ?backing families to make better choices brings lasting change?.

But Mr Burnham accused the Government of being ‘too close to powerful vested interests’ to stand up for children.

HPA wowsers at it again

The Taxpayers? Union have released documents yesterday showing the wowsers over at the Health Promotions Agency have spent up $1.2 million on their batshit crazy No Beersies campaign.

?The?Taxpayers? Union?had feedback that the??Not Beersies’ ads were making people?thirsty?for beer. Some participants in the Agency?s own focus groups said the same – that the ads encouraged drinking or were confusing.”

And encouraging kids to have a few handles too by the looks of this picture.


?The documents show that the campaign had the least positive impact on entrenched, high-risk drinkers, and instead targets those least likely to face harm from alcohol consumption. The HPA spent at least $1.2 million on the campaign, but has refused to say how much taxpayers paid in?advertising agency fees. It also shows that the HPA conducts no cost?benefit analysis on its campaign.

Deluded fatty complains about being called fatty

Plus Size Wedding Underwear by Moonrise Lingerie

This deluded fatty has complained about being called fatty by Lord Sugar

Lord Sugar has been accused of bullying after calling a young woman “fatty” on Twitter.

The Apprentice star was bombarded with complaints and branded “arrogant” and “sexist” after sending the message to size 16 beauty queen Elena Raouna.

The row began after Miss Raouna, 23, sent Lord Sugar a message that said: “Evening sugar 😉 can I call you that? Lol.”

The multi-milionnaire tycoon replied: “yes no problem as long as I can call you fatty.”

He later responded to another follower who waded into the row by asking whether there was “any need to reply in that manner” by saying: “get stuffed and mind your own business.”

The response sparked a backlash in which Lord Sugar was roundly criticised and called “a miserable old goat”.

Miss Raouna, who won Miss British Beauty Curve in 2013, has demanded an apology from the businessman, saying she was “absolutely fuming” about the “cruel” tweet.

She told the Mirror: “‘It was just a friendly tweet to say ‘hi’ but my face froze in shock with his reply and I had to check it was his official Twitter page because I couldn’t believe he would be so abusive.

“It’s cyber bullying.”

Tax the Fat Bastard not the Fat

Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver wants to tax sugar because sugar makes people fat bastards and costs the taxpayer.

Sugary foods risk causing a public health crisis similar to smoking and should be taxed in the same way as tobacco, Jamie Oliver has said.

The television chef said sugar was ?definitely the next evil? and should be targeted because of the burden it was placing on the NHS.

He said he agreed with France’s decision to impose a tax on sugary drinks and believes Britain should follow.

The problem with this is that such a broad based tax is very difficult to administer and has had little impact. ? Read more »


Katie Hopkins: what fat people need is a kick up the arse


Katie Hopkins is at it again…speaking the truth.

Of course useful taxpayer funded troughers like Boyd Swinburn and hi pals would say that her attitudes are outrageous and if they could just have more funding they could design some new taxes to tax people thin.

The bottom line is Katie Hopkins is right…fat people do need a kick up the arse.>

Katie has just finished filming My Fat Story, a two-part series for the TLC television network, for which she piled on 4st (half her body weight) and ate her way through a staggering 13 ready meals daily to prove how easy it was to shed the pounds. ?I?ve always criticised fat people, so I decided to put my money where my mouth is,? says the newly slimmed-down Katie, who believes that obese people are the architects of their own misfortune.

She has little sympathy with the recent EU ruling on obesity as a disability. It?s her belief there?s too much ?sympathy, tea and tears? around Britain?s spiralling obesity epidemic, which costs the NHS more than ?6?billion a year. ?All fat people want is an excuse,? she says. ?But fatties have the one thing disabled people don?t have. They have choice. Nobody?s forcing them to shovel food in their faces.? If she sees a morbidly obese person in a disabled parking bay, Katie plans to have this very conversation with them. ?The institutions keep offering excuses but what fat people need is a kick up the a—,? she says.

Poverty or lack of education are no defence. ?We went to Aldi, did the shop and proved the point,? she says. Katie, who believes there is no such thing as a happy fat person ? they?re simply in denial ? was appalled to discover recently that some British mothers were feeding their offspring liquidised Chinese and Indian takeaways. ?You sit there and you go, ‘No! It can?t be true!??? she says. ?But that?s what?s going on outside our cutesy little bubble.? ? Read more »
