Jimmy had this as part of his last Fun Filled Friday edition but I just had to share it. It’s a promo video for Taco Bell’s new "Drive-Thru Diet." Oh wow: 7 items under 9 grams of fat! We’re saved!
The promo is done buy a guy named Chris Rose and features Taco Bell’s new Subway-esque mascot, Christine Dougherty, who supposedly lost 54 pounds eating Taco Bell crap. Even worse is the typical haul out of the "Registered Dietitian" useful idiot — in this case Ruth Carey — who’s the typical dispenser of conventional "wisdom" that’s been working oh-so well. "…Having skim milk instead of whole." Moron.
So if you check the "Nutritional" Information (oxymoron alert) and run some numbers you’ll see that the average calories per item is 166 and the average carbohydrate 33 grams. At a recommended caloric intake of 1250 per day, that’s basically all seven items per day (how convenient!) with a total carb intake of 231 grams. So, jack you’re insulin all day on fast-"food" crap, stay ravenously hungry, yet starve yourself on 1250 calories. That’s gonna be really healthy for your metabolism.
And then there’s the obvious question: what do you eat after you’ve starved yourself, enriched Taco Bell, and lost the weight? Or, do you just eat from the drive thru for life?
Check out the comments. So far, uniformly negative. Maybe there is some hope.
