Skip to comments.'You can eat an extra cheeseburger a day' - say diet experts
Posted on 11/14/2009 10:04:19 PM PST by Nachum
Official guidance on how much we can eat each day has been underestimated for the last two decades, scientists have revealed.
The daily intake of calories - currently 2,000 for woman and 2,500 for men - could be increased by up to 16 per cent, the equivalent of cheeseburger or two packets of crisps.
An average adult could happily squeeze in an extra 400 calories a day and not pile on the pounds, Britain's leading nutritionists have admitted.

I’ve been telling myself this for years.
Giggling...1 little cheeseburger about every 2 weeks — well, in all honesty it’s a double cheeseburger.
That sounds about right, from my own experience dieting. The problem is, most people already eat more calories than they need, so most people are over fat.
Excellent! I knocked down a Carl's Jr. bacon guacamole Six Dollar Burger combo just an hour ago. I'm sure getting that Diet Dr. Pepper as the drink did it's part to neturalize that excess fat. Good to hear at least one doctor agrees...
Huh? Have they not noticed all the stupendously overweight people walking around? Which ones haven’t been getting enough cheeseburgers?
Oh, OK, if I HAVE to!!
“Huh? Have they not noticed all the stupendously overweight people walking around? Which ones havent been getting enough cheeseburgers?”
That’s because we are all sitting on our duffs here at our computers every day on Free Republic, lol!
The reasons that so many people are fat are the fact that they consume 4,000 calories a day and don’t exercise.
That sounds sooo gooood, maybe I’ll pop in there for lunch:)
Note to scientists, doctors, dietitians et al.
I’ll eat whatever I damn well please, once I get it to hold still long enough.
Yes, mostly in hospitals and doctor's offices.
Don't do it to me. I quit 15 months ago and when I'm around it, it gives me an urge to have one. So far, I've over come the urge and it's getting easier.
I haven't figured out yet how something can stink and smell good at the same time.
Gotta be said.... Somebody send this article to Ann Coulter!
Too bad most burgers taste disgusting nowadays. Gotta make your own with good meat.
Any good recipe’s for making your own ground beef?
I asked the guys behind the meat counter at Stater Brothers to grind a chuck roast and a rib eye together, but they wouldn’t do it. They did them separately and told me to mix them at home.
Trust nothing in print during the days of the Obama-media.
Stick to common sense and accepted facts...and stock lots of ammo...
I like how a man 6' 5" and 250 lbs gets the same allocation as a man who is 5' 5" and 150 lbs.
I have an old Oster grinder. I use the coarse grind plate. I weigh out equal amounts of beef chuck and venison. Whenever I buy a whole top sirloin, I cut off the extra fat (usually about a pound) and freeze it separately. I add 10% by weight of the venison only to the meat mixture. I usually only defrost the meat enough to cut it into chunks that fit into the grinder. I wear Nytril gloves and alternate the 2 types of meat with the fat as I grind. I toss the mixture lightly to mix it and freeze in 1-pound portions. I use quart freezer bags for the individual portions, mark them as to date and contents and then place all the packages into a large freezer bag. That helps avoid the lone package shifting to the bottom of the freezer and being left for months.
I am careful to wash hands, cutting board, grinder parts, etc quickly and, if necessary, often during the grinding if I think I may have contaminated anything.
You don't need to use venison, of course and if you can't, I would stick to all chuck and no added fat or a mixture of chuck and sirloin, again, with no added fat. If you use round, then fat should be added, IMO, as it is quite lean and if burger is too dry, it will not stick together to form a decent hamburger.
I usually try to purchase reduced price/quick sale beef, freeze it until I need it. Combining it with the venison gives us hamburger for about $1/pound and we prefer it to commercially ground beef.
This makes a lot of sense.
If you eat at a level where your body thinks it’s starving it becomes more efficient at storing calories.
If you eat at a slightly higher then your body metabolized the small extra and stops storing fat.
Typical junk science. If you need to worry over whether or not you can fit an extra cheeseburger in your diet, than chances are you are overweight. People who are thin couldn’t care less whether or not they can eat an extra cheeseburger. If they want an extra cheeseburger they will eat it.
