    Link: This Is Why You`re Fat... Britain? - Hungry this morning? This UK diner serves breakfast called the Challenge Kidz Plate because it weighs as much as a baby.

    Brits are far fatter than Americans IME. I was in London for some time and saw very few people that were not fatties.

    they eat fried everything all the damn time...women weren`t anything to get excited about at all either.

    When I saw this on the BBC site I thought it`s nothing worse than I`ve heard about some American diners.

    Brits invented the fried breakfast. Fried kippers, toad in a hole, sausages, fried bread.

    It`s about portion control

    There`s nothing wrong with the odd splash out, I don`t think. What does confuse people, though, is that it`s not what you eat every day that causes you to stay fat if you`re already so. If you actually need to lose some weight, it`s not enough just to eat "sensibly". To lose weight, you`ve actually got to eat in a way that, by definition, means you`re absorbing less calories than you really need. Once you`re at a healthy weight from a period of abstinence like that, that`s when eating sensibly (with the occasional treat like a fried breakfast) can become a part of your routine again. If you`ve ever known someone overweight, you may have noticed that they don`t eat anything much different to thin people, and yet stay the same amount overweight. That`s because you`re both eating as much as it takes to stay at the weights you`re each at.

    I will admit, I may or may not have been nude when I posted my orginial post...hell I may be nude right now...but wtf is a mong?????


    btw, I can see what I posted offended you. I can only assume you are on the rather larger side of life...perhaps it is not me you are really made at but in fact, you are actually made at yourself?

    either way you are a fat fat fatty!

    Brits invented the fried breakfast. Fried kippers, toad in a hole, sausages, fried bread.

    It`s about portion control


    portion control is important, but really not as important as people think. it is about the foods you are eating and how well they do or do not interact with your body.

    if you are eating foods that are high on the GI they will cause an insulin response in your body to counter act the high amount of sugar in your system. when you relaese insulin it tells your body to store food as fat to get the sugar out of your system faster.

    then rebounding result is your blood sugar level drops too low and you get hungry all over again.

    I used this logic to drop from 280lbs to 230lbs. I then built my way back up in muscle to 250lbs over a 4 year period. I tried plenty before that with no real results.

    What I got from the article was this:

    I want to investigate why British citizens are fatter than they were 50 years ago. To do this I will eat a 9 pound food challenge plate because this is what is making everyone fat.

    And concerning Man v Food, I`m curious how Adam Richman doesn`t die from doing all those food challenges.

    I think you already know the answer to that. There is no food we Americans won`t try to deep fry.

    I think you`ll find Gerry that while you`re right that we are `about the same` in terms of numbers over a healthy BMI, America has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more morbidly obese people. Most people over here are a little bit chubby... but many people over there have their own `zip codes`. :-)

    Still, nothing beats a good `full English`. Two rashers of unsmoked back bacon, a Cumberland sausage, two fried eggs, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and black pudding, two toast. (What are these `hash browns` of which you speak?)

    The secret is tea, not coffee as a beverage. Tea cuts through the grease the way coffee just can`t. And a third slice of toast with marmalade to cleanse the pallete. Perfect start to a Saturday.

    Gerry,

    NZ is marginally fatter than the UK? But they do all those sports and bungee jumping and rafting and stuff. I`ve never actually been but that`s the line they have been feeding us.

    I agree with the full english- but prefer fried bread, and I do have coffee. Good start to a working day- not a sitting on your arse day though- sarnie for lunch and a sensible dinner. That is just stupid- and such a WASTE.

    That was featured on a show about why populations are getting fatter.... including the UK. he was using it to compare to similar plates in the USA. It was an interesting show and made me think more about fat and sugar while I tucked into my home made fudge, comprised mainly of fat and sugar.

    let me see if I understand this. I post a response to your PROFANITY LACED RANT, in which I play along with what you are saying and make a joke of it and I am the one that was `wound up"?

    yeah I am pretty sure one of us wsas wound up and I am pretty sure it is the one that started cussing and ranting on about someone else`s penis hanging out and calling them a mong which I am assuming is short of MONGOLOID (which you most likely didn`t know and which btw is NOT down syndrome genuis but a out of date term used to describe someone that was physically disfigured.

    so, my little limey bastage, chill out and keep stuffing your fatty face with those spotted dicks and fried everything else.

    @LordJim Hash browns are an amazing food. They are potatoes that are shredded and mixed with some eggs and flour to hold them together. You can season them however you like and then saute them in some butter until they`re golden brown. MMMMMMMMM delicious.

    "calling them a mong which I am assuming is short of MONGOLOID (which you most likely didn`t know and which btw is NOT down syndrome genuis but a out of date term used to describe someone that was physically disfigured."

    In England the term mong is used as a derogatory insult directed towards sufferers of Down`s Syndrome or (when directed at non-sufferers) comparing the victim in a derogatory way to a Down`s Syndrome sufferer.
    Ricky Gervais recently used the insult whilst claiming he was "taking it back" as a term to describe an idiot. To which most people replied "why don`t you just use the word idiot".
    Ricky Gervais is a dick.

    1 hour for a 15 inch squared pizza while walking.

    RdDan.
    Look up `Mongolism`.
    This outdated term was used to define the condition currently referred to as Down`s syndrome. (The chromosomal abnormality). The name came from the appearance of a person with Down`s bearing a resemblance to a person from the east Asian Mongolian races, hence Mongoloid. This word is now no longer in common parlance, because of the offensive implication that people from Mongolian regions were mentally and/or physically impaired.
    Our wonderful(?) language is littered with archaic expressions describing the mental faculty, (or lack of), in a person, including; idiot, imbecile, moron and cretin.
    Despite their being references to a person`s IQ, they are often used, but rarely considered offensive.
    All are considered to be insulting; it is the circumstance and context of their use that forms the boundary between joke and crass insensitivity.
    I personally find the terms `mong` and `spas` offensive, but still use `half-wit`.
    Yes, Ric

    Wow. I consider myself a fairly decent trenchman but I`m not sure I could put much of a dent in that.

    Make me hungry thinking about it though.

    ..and I`m a skinny little git. Eat like a horse, work like a horse.

    Diabetes might get me, but when it does I`ll have packed away a lot of good food and drink.

    It was £15 and probably enough food for five hearty breakfasts, so good value. Sharing means you don`t get your money back. Fine, share with your mates and pay up. £3 for 20% of that is a good deal.
