File This Under Things I Don’t Want to Know


Not sure how new this is, but it’s the first time I’ve noticed it… calorie counts posted in the Church’s Fried Chicken/Subway/Nathan’s food court on 8th Ave. btw. 44+45th St. They’ve been shut down a number of times by the DOH in the past year or two, and I can’t help but wonder if it was for not complying with the city’s calorie count laws.  In a related story, the New York Daily News gets a bunch of tourists on the record talking about how much they hate seeing the calories on the menus of their favorite upscale chains in Midtown, like The Palm and McCormick & Schmick’s.

Personally I’d rather not know how many calories are in that Church’s fried chicken meal I’m eating, but I also take a bit of joy in knowing how much pain the calorie counts inflict upon those who think that eating a cobb Salad is healthy.

  • Ironically, no one wants to comment on this one….

    Anyone reading this blog regularly consumes this shit all the time and its a little numbing to see a Double cheeseburger listed at 2,700 calories.

    Actually, no. I’ve been following this blog and have managed to lose weight doing so. This while eating all of the food that Zach has recommended. Minus the tongue tacos though, I still don’t know if I can go there.

    Though, I think that these calorie counts apply to the entire meal rather than the double cheeseburger itself.
