I thought you were starting a post about a diet for your marathon so clicked in order to tell you that you'd disappear if you cut out carbs.

I saw the posters for that yesterday and had to look twice. No bread, just double deep-fried, hormone-stuffed chicken. A great addition to the diets of the diabetic and obese of this town. *sarcastic emoji*

Hey Im all for trying new things atleast once.
Ramzan is just around the corner and I think after 12 hours of no food, I should be able to digest atleast one of these, in 20 days I think ;)
btw on a more serious note, obesity is SO rampant here and SO easy to pick up that I sometimes think these large fast food companies actually have a vendetta against the human kind itself

They don't need to offer that in the states, they have a much poisonous version of it called the corporate democracy aka the GOP/Hillary duo! And believe me that duo is more effective at destroying lives a hundred times over than that heart stopping burger mate

KFC IS THE BEST (in UK)

It doesn't taste right here. The filipinos who love anything fried eat another brand I've forgotten what it is.

I once heard / saw / read a quote; "why cure cancer when you can make so much money treating it?"

I learned how to make fried chicken when I was in Louisiana...still do a fry from time to time. Turkey is also pretty good for frying.

N.

It's their chips, when delivered that are an utter disgrace.

Burger King here is pretty poor too actually.

That being said, I'm now more of a grown up and eat less of this stuff. :blink:

The Big Mac + Quarter Pounder and 9 nug-chaser (bareback, no sauce) at the weekend disagrees.

It's just less frequent nowadays.
