    The article also mentioned that Hardee's was targeting young males with their new burritos....

    HA! Its terrible to point out, but the barefoot contessa went through a similar...transformation. When I worked at Borders we had a display of her books in the cooking section. You could actually see her body changing in the book covers...

    Yea, you don't want the sodium or fat even if you need the caloric intake.

    Then again, ever read "Ultramarathon Man"? In it, he talks about being on a 200mile run and stopping at 7-11 and consuming two burritos, a giant slurpee, a pastry, etc. And he puts salt packets in the slurpee. As he rightfully points out though, he's burning thousands of calories from running that far, so it literally goes in and burns off right away. He repeats in the food discussion in the appendix that you should never, ever, eat like that unless you're running 200 miles at one time.

    Although, if you could run 200 miles AND eat tons of junk food....it's a sweet deal.

    don't eat there, or their sister restaurants on the west, carl's jr. their food made me queasy several times...literally.

    but i think we should serve it to those who really need to put on a few pounds.

    well it still would be different for the individual, but most runners do need more calories and more sodium than other people.

    like i personally need to consume about 5,000 a day to maintain weight and keep everything i need. i also put salt on just about everything. but eating junk food all the time still isn't good for you, no matter how much you run.

    right now i'm only running 30-35 miles a week. trying to lift weights also

    Yes, it's true runners need more. But generally you need more around when you're working out. So i guess partway through a really long run one of those would work.

    Yea, you're definitely burning a lot of calories with that sort of workout. But your body needs healthier stuff than that "breakfast" to recover from those workouts, since you'll need to repair muscle, etc, which you'd get from the eggs and protein, but you still dont need the nasty amounts of saturated fat.

    Have this for breakfast, that 1,100 calorie salad for lunch, and go to Wendy's for a large Baconator combo for supper, and you'll be dead by sunrise.

    What I wanted to know was what you put into a salad to make it 1100 calories! I was thinking fried chicken bits, bacon, salad dressing...but it seems almost like something you'd need to work to achieve. It's a SALAD. You have to add a lot to it to get that high.

    i agree that i need healthier calories than that thing, and so does people who are running 100 miles or whatever at a time. but eating that would be better than not getting enough food

    Oh definitely.

    Although that would be a pretty cool marketing campaign (official post-run food of marathon runners everywhere!), it's more likely the inactive that they are targeting with this burrito, and that's what's sad.

    :eek: That was practically X-Rated food porn!
