The REALLY big breakfast: 6,000 calorie fry-up is slammed by health campaigners...
DailyMail ^ | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 01/29/2012 4:38:55 PM PST by Daffynition

A monster breakfast which weighs the same as a small child and could potentially kill diners is attracting criticism from angry health campaigners

The Kidz Breakfast at Jesters Diner in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, includes 12 rashers of bacon, 12 sausages and six eggs and weighs on average 9lb - 1lb 5oz more than the average newborn baby.

Health experts are demanding its removal from the menu and are warning someone with a heart condition could die if they eat it, with each helping amounting to at least 6,000 calories, up to three days' food intake for an average person.

I’m training for a half-marathon.

If I want to go eat a breakfast like that, I’d better live in a FREE COUNTRY where I can still do it!!!!!!!!!!!

No scientific evidence for this absurd statement.

They could also die if they don’t eat it.

I’ve never eaten that breakfast.

I’ll likely never eat that breakfast.

I’m expecting to die someday.

That's funny, I know that look. When I go to Reno once a year I take my friends two skinny daughters
to a breakfast diner and load up the table with half the menu. They go crazy eating and sampling everything
on the table. Some of the other diners are actually disgusted in their expressions. I love it.

Michael Phelps has said in dozen of interviews he burns down so many calories he eats 3 Grand Slams at Denny’s, easy. The Rock said that he chows down at IHOP and takes in 12 donuts easy on the weekends as one also needs to reward your body for 6 days of training.

Welcome to the world of liberal morons where they know what is best for you without your permission.

Man, that's a buffet for six in this house. My Sunday breakfast consisted of six slices of thick-cut bacon, two fried eggs, and two slices of French toast. My dogs cleaned me out of four bacon slices and an entire egg before I was done, and I was still full. I can't figure out guys like Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut. I love Nathan's as much as the next guy, but where do you put away five dozen dogs, dressed?

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

This is BS.

Animal protein and fat cannot damage anyone’s heart; Margarine and Polyunsaturated fats will do that though, so will fake fats.

The food police need to go to jail.

Where do “health experts” get off DEMANDING anything ???

And who anointed them “health experts” in the first place?

Screw them, and screw the tittering media.

The local elementary school has always made clay cheeseburgers in art class. The students mold the clay in something they recognize, glaze the art, and fire it before taking it home.

This year however the school district healthy eating czar told the students they could not make "cheeseburgers".

She later acquiesced if they just called them "vegeburgers".

Its a clay piece of art molded by a child....sigh.

Well, someone who’s starving, could live if they did!

What’s their point? Should not someone with a “heart condition” know enough to think “Hey, I think maybe I won’t have the 9,000 calorie breakfast today.”

In any event, so what? Everyone dies, it’s a free country. Start the day right, eat a big breakfast.

Lose the bread, potatoes, beans & pudding, & that’s a very healthy breakfast! Especially if the eggs are pastured, cooked in pastured butter and the meat is minimally processed.

True, but someone with a heart condition may have a heart attack lifting it and putting it on the table.....

To me this is one of those can/should arguments. You can offer it on the menu. You can prepare it as large as you want. You can cook it and serve it to your customers. Your customer can order it, but they probably shouldn't. Just don't think anyone should try to legislate freedom.

Ah, but did you see there are Tomatoes. Tomatoes! That's what’ll hurt ‘em. Purely healthy, those tomatoes.

If I were to try this, I’d ask to switch the tomatoes for a couple extra hash browns. After all, it only comes with two. Pikers!

But at least the price is right — a bargain at 15 Pounds (that's a currency in this case, not a weight).

There is a Restaurant in Tappahannock called Lowry’s

The best Seafood on the East Coast IMO.

They have a Captains Platter there that few grown men could eat. I always order it and an extra plate for my wife and she and I share it. We both end up full and we get a great sampler of everything they have there.

Who is to say people do not order this breakfast and share it with 3 other people. It isn’t anyone else’s business what I order or what the Restaurant provides .

By the way they charge an extra buck for the extra plate, but it’s worth it.

I agree. I would replace mine with about a dozen stickey buns dripping with butter, brown sugar and raisins.

Back around '57 or '58, we made ash trays out of fired clay. I still have the one I gave dear old Mom & Dad! Could you imagine the apoplexy if some student did that today? The poor kid would probably be suspended or expelled.

I made one too - early 70’s. Nobody in the family smoked so mom used it to hold loose change. It’s probably still in the same kitchen cabinet. (I’ll have to check next time we go there.)

Our revenge comes in a few decades.

The food police feel tofu diets gives them 2 extra years - in their thirties.

It doesn't.

The 'two years' will be added at the end -- extra time in a nursing home. Have fun food police - remembering all the pizza and beer you did without? They'll have time to think about the pizza and beer, bacon and eggs - - waiting for Nurse Ratched to bring them their meal - of baby food.

Tofu is quite carcinogenic. Its loaded with phytoestrogens that greatly accelerate the growth of tumors; especially breast, lung, and prostate.

That’s OK so long as it’s a government approved Brussel sprout!!! It might even be a good thing if you’re on Medicare and wasting resources better allocated to the young.

Interesting about gluten issue. Caught just the very end of TV program today with some doctor stating gluten research is totally bogus and pushing for everything in moderation. Wish I had tuned in earlier. Wonder if it will be one of those “eggs were bad for you but now they are good for you” issues.
