This Is Why You’re Fat ( www.thisiswhyyourefat.com ) reminds you just why gluttony can be a deadly sin. The year-old American website comes with the tagline ‘Where Dreams Become Heart Attacks’ and hosts pictures of morbidly fatty dishes that are a sureshot recipe for heart trouble. Some ‘culinary Frankensteins’ include a giant mug made from bacon and filled to the brim with cheddar; the Mountain Harbor Inn Brownie Stack (three scoops of vanilla ice cream atop a four-inch thick chocolate brownie, covered in hot fudge sauce and whipped cream); Tony’s BLT (a pound of fried bacon on a toasted Italian bread); and the gigantic 30,000 Calorie Sandwich.
There’re also pictures of some beautiful and delicious-looking dishes, any of which would result in a sugar overdose. The only downside is that there are no nutrition charts next to any of the posts. Approach this highly popular website that’s both weirdly fascinating and vile in turns, with caution: some pictures will positively have your stomach in a lurch!
