    Could it be a side effect of MSG?
    That sometimes happens when I have Chinese takeout from cheapy restaurants.

    Reading about this burger is enough to cause me to rush to the bathroom...

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Could be the MSG. Foods like McDonalds and regular Chinese take-outs seem to have some imbalance that makes your brain think that your still hungry, even though your stomach might be full.

    That's why I avoid Chinese buffets. It seems like you could eat forever in those places and never feel full.

    ^^ I agree with you there, especially the chinese. I could eat that forever. Even when I'm stuffed I could still fit a spring roll, prawn toast and and hand full of crackers in. Which is why I don't treat myself to them very often.

    Boyf bought this monster sized burger yesterday. The thing was huge! and he couldn't even eat it all so its just a stupid gimmick, and boyfs stupid for getting it in the first place.

    Haven't touched fast food since watching "Supersize Me". It changed my life.
    I'd rather eat the Snickers bite size candies, yum!

    You are right!

    When I was 14-15years old I went to McDonald's to eat when I was somewhere on holiday. Where I live there are no McDonald's or BurgerKing.

    I ate 3 Cheeseburgers and I still felt hungry!! I have never experienced something like that ever... I thought something was wrong with me...

    No more fastfood for me!

    You know what else is bad about this 700cal burger. Is that most people who would get this burger, would get the large fries and pop to go along with it. So with that added in, that's a 1000+ calorie meal in one sitting! That's half of the recommended calorie intake for an average person. It's not worth it IMO.

    I was wondering about that just the other day! Can't believe I found the answer right here as to what McDonald's would launch in the US for the World Cup (I was discussing this with my sister over a McArgentina the other day, lol).

    In Brazil they launched the "Champion Burgers", one for each day of the week: McBrazil, McGermany, McItaly, McUruguay, McArgentina, McEngland and McFrance. I've only tried McArgentina and McUruguay (absolutely fantastic), but have yet to try the others. They all look so yummy, but are certainly below the 700 kcal count.

    oh less calories than the other meals.
    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    You were lucky to have me. But you know what? I think I already got the best part of you. And she's standing right out there. I don't know... what's left just doesn't look so good anymore. Hope Floats
