Yeah, Portland! And tessa- is this really the first Burgerville location you`ve heard about? I mean, they`re all over the place. I hit up the one on SE 12th and Hawthorne occasionally when I`m on my way to volunteer at Free Geek.

Yay Portland! :)

That was a law that our legislature passed last session that went into effect 1/1/10. You`ll find this at every fast food establishment now.

Extra Note: No sales tax! :)

Good, Obesity is not a disease, it`s a fact that the entry hole is bigger than the exit hole. Cook your own meals for instance. Buy a cookbook (or cookery book) if you don`t know what and how.

Wow- what a great idea!! I have real trouble gaining weight, so when i get the chance to eat fast food ( rarely, live in small village without fast food places)I like to have calorie rich foods- but not TOO ghastly in other respects!!

@Handsompod I agree. Occasional is good if you`re the kind of person who needs occasional rewards in order to stay on track. I don`t really feel like I`m deprived (thus requiring some reward). Its not like I don`t eat after all. It just dosn`t rule my life. I have a set resting metabolic rate that I base my daily intake of calories off of. When I exercise, I acknowledge that it burns calories and increases my metabolism, so I add the extra calories to my daily intake. That`s all i get. No extra snacks.
I still have waffles in the morning, and ham sammiches, and things like spaghetti. They`re all just lower calorie, higher nutrient dense versions with healthier stuff than your average off-the-shelf processed foods.

Yup could die tomorrow from a car accident. True. But is that really a responsible approach to life? I could die tomorrow... so I don`t need an Education. I could die tomorrow, so screw work. We could throw our hands up at cosmic fate and say screw it all & what the hell is life about anyway? It`s an irresponsible approach though. Like it or not... more often than not, life keeps going (reguarless of what its about) and you have to keep working at it. :)

I wonder what the sodium content is. Probably enough to kill garden slugs.

lol calories Xd
It`s the toxins that`ll get you.
Though saturated and trans fat are also problems DX...though, they do scarring of the arteries to cause harm...

There was a point in my life when, due to temporary stomach acid issues, I was losing lots of weight completely lost any sense of hunger. So I had to stick to a diet of very bland stomach-appeasing foods in order to gain my weight back. Let me tell you, girls complain about how hard losing weight is, but you try gaining weight when any normal amount of food makes you nauseous and you get more sick than a pregnant woman eight and a half months in!

Loxen, your control is admirable. However, to eat somthing like this every now and again, really doesn`t do much harm. Food is one of the greatest pleasures in life and is also affordable to most. It is something we need to survive at all. Having a treat of a fatty burger once in a while instead of eating just to keep yourself sustained does more good than harm as it gives you a sense of satisfaction that you gave yourself a little treat. To eat them everyday would be lunacy, but once a month/couple of months or so a little filth is good for the soul. Maybe not the heart but hey, I`d rather die having lived a life happy and die younger than in torment and live for a hundren years.

Those calories and fat totals are for TWO big hamburgers with cheese and bacon. Sure its probably not healthy to eat TWO Bacon cheeseburgers EVERY day, but according to those numbers a person could eat one of those burgers for lunch and one for dinner, AND still have a big breakfast of some kind that`s low in fat, and not go over recommended daily calorie or fat intake.

@ Lionhart2:
Food is a very small part of my life, so I don`t think much about it beyond simple monitoring of my intake.

I think people can become so addicted to unhealthy food that it becomes a vice for them. They really can`t imagine a life that doesn`t revolve around it. I see it much like people addicted to various drugs. Instead of thinking where they are going to get their next shot of heroin, they are already thinking of what`s for dessert, while the burger is still in their mouth. From my viewpoint, its not me who`s on my knees.

I enjoy and respect life (Body = temple yada yada). I place an investment in my health (mental and physical) so I can enjoy life even longer. Time on the planet is short and there is so much to learn, see and do. I feed my mind instead of my gut. Even if I only get 10 extra years past my normal expectancy ( in fairly good health) To me, that`s worth it. A lot can happen in science, tech, art, lit, etc in ten years.

Lionheart- I`m also enjoying my life eating what I please. It`s eating to excess that kills you. Enjoy life, you only have one.

That sounds terrible, it sounds like you live every moment of your life in calorie paranoia, so what is the POINT of living longer if you can`t enjoy it. Me, I eat what I want to, and sure someday IAB will mourn my early death (he coulda had 10 more years if only he had watched his diet, you`ll all sob, standing before my shrine...) but at least I will have enjoyed my life.

Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

I do a longevity diet, so there`s no way I`d ever be able to stuff a greasy burger in my face. My food is designed with optimal nutrition and minimal calories for an long term goal of an increased lifespan (yeah... I`m a Guinea pig. You can all thank me in 70+ years).

I`m thin, but NOT malnourished or skeletal. I just don`t consume any excess calories. AT ALL.
The closest I ever get is an occasional treat (no more than 3x a month cause beef is on my "naughty" list) of a 96% lean (4% fat) hamburger (patty = 150 calories + 80 calorie bread + pickles =0 +mustard = 0+ lettuce =pretty much free. Total: 230cals).
Seeing someone blow this many calories on a single food item without a second though... kinda sad. Eat rich, die young. :/

Noamfer and v atarxic: The calories represent the amount of energy you are gaining from your food. The average person requires somewhere in the neighborhood of 2000 calories a day, and if you eat more, you gain weight, and you eat less, you potentially lose weight. After that you have fiber, which is harder for you body to digest, which results in it keeping you full longer. More fiber is a good thing. Then you have fat, or more specifically in the case of hamburgers, animal fat, which is much more calorie dense than protein and carbs. Animal fat, AKA saturated fat is extremely unhealthy...

...And finally, you have carbs, or carbohydrates, which is your body`s preferred source of fuel. Carbohydrates break down into simple sugars faster than either protein or fat, so your body can digest and use their energy more efficiently. And finally 1 gram of protein = 4 calories, 1 gram of Carbs = 4 calories, and 1 gram of fat = 9 calories. By multiplying protein, fat, and carbs by their caloric amount, and adding the three totals together, you are left with the total amount of calories in the food you are eating.

isn`t that table wrong? unless i`m not reading this thing right, shouldn`t those total %`s be on the opposite side of the burger names?

It`s not that bad? If you`re young, you should be getting 2500+ calories a day, plus I`m sure you wouldn`t eat much more after that..

Not very useful when you`re ordering for multiple people. Unless everyone on that order was a bunch of omniscient gluttons each able to eat the entirety of the same two sandwiches, I don`t think those nutrition facts can be applied.

I guess THIS is why so many americans are so FAT!

You should never eat that much fat in one day, never mind in one burger. Absurd, don`t worry though you will die younger from complications of obesity.

I don`t see how they`re guilting their customers into anything- they`re just providing information. It`s not like the receipts says "eat up, fatass!" or anything.

Also, Burgerville`s awesome. [email protected] Yukon Gold waffle-cut fries. It`s the only fast-food joint I eat at (though only occasionally).

Whoever eats that crap deserves every clogged artery frankly, and yeah they should have this at every fastfood place (actually every food place).

And Naz you probably hit refresh. Surprisingly, there is a delete button.

Who ever made this purchase, used a credit card, Why?

Maybe it was a Visa debit card.

That`s probably forced on them by some organization.

Alright, the Hardees "2/3 Pound Monster Thick burger" TOTALLY blows this one out of the water!

Serving Size (g) 413
Total Calories 1420
Calories From Fat 970
Fat (g) 108
Saturated Fat 43
Cholesterol (mg) 230
Sodium 2770
Carbs 46

Yeah..thats not the only burger on their menu thats super high in calories either..theres like 3 more!
