Why We're Fat Volume 14

According to the medical journal The Lancet, half (50%) of the population of the United Kingdom and the United States of America will be clinically obese by 2030.

One reason why is The Big One breakfast plate at the Hungry Horse Café, in Corby, England.

A "typical" English breakfast??

This monstrosity weighs in at six-and-a-half pounds (6.5 lbs. or 3 kg.) and contains about 7,500 calories, three times the recommended daily calorie intake of an average adult male.

Recently, Steven Magee, a 29-year-old demolition worker has become the first person to actually finish the giant breakfast plate. The hungry Scotsman, who claims to only eat cereal for breakfast, needed one hour and twenty minutes and six cups of tea to down the three sausages, three burgers, three fried eggs, three bacon rashers, three black pudding slices, three square sausage slices and triple servings of beans and mushrooms. As if that wasn't enough, he also had to go through triple helpings of potato waffles, potato scones, hash browns, fried bread portions, and three rounds of bread and butter and toast.

More, More, More!!

So, what did he get for completing this eating challenge?

Just his $19 USD (£12) meal for free and a framed photo on the café wall.

Go figure.....
