DailyDirt: Hamburgers Gone Wild

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The Library of Congress names Louis’ Lunch sandwich shop as the inventor of the hamburger, but there are various disputes over who exactly cooked the first hamburger (and named it after people from Germany). In any case, the hamburger has undergone quite a few changes since the early 1900s. Here are a couple unhealthy examples of extreme burgers, and a reminder that being overweight doesn’t necessarily kill you (but it’s not considered healthy).

If you’d like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

Be careful about what you dismiss as unhealthy. I am on the Ketogenic diet (“keto”) and the ‘Merica burger would be ok on this diet, with the exception of the dressing which probably has too many carbs. Yes, it really is a weight loss diet and it really works. I have lost 50 pounds in less than 3 months by eating no more than 20 grams of carbohydrates a day. I just had a rather complete set of blood tests and they are much better than before I started the diet. I feel better than I have in years and have no trouble staying on a diet of mostly meat and fat. Be careful about what you denounce as unhealthy.
