    The act of feeding someone is an act of beauty,
    whether it's a full Sunday roast or a jam sandwich,
    but only when done with love.

    Australia now world's fattest nation Jill Stark
    June 20, 2008


    Australia has become the fattest nation in the world, with more than 9
    million adults now rated as obese or overweight, according to an
    alarming new report.

    The most definitive picture of the national obesity crisis to date has
    found that Australians now outweigh Americans and face a future "fat
    bomb" that could cause 123,000 premature deaths over the next two
    decades.

    If the crisis is not averted, obesity experts have warned, health
    costs could top $6 billion and an extra 700,000 people will be
    admitted to hospital for heart attacks, strokes and blood clots caused
    by excess weight.

    They're not all disgusting except in portion size. As a patriotic
    Marylander may I say the Smith Island cake is good when made from
    scratch and served as sensible portion. It is interesting to discover
    where some of these gluttonous things actually come from but I want to
    enjoy my supper so I didn't finish. It is weird that somewhere actually
    claims the invention of the turduckhen.

    I got to the Alaskan dish and nearly puked!!

    "Eskimo ice cream
    Ingredients: Reindeer fat, seal oil, salmonberries, blackberries

    Fat content: Itís hard to estimate without a known serving size of this
    native treat. But consider this: An average serving of reindeer fat packs
    a whopping 91 grams of fat. A different version made with fish, berries,
    and seal oil contains 9 grams of fat.

    Also known as Eskimo Ice Cream, akutaq, (pronounced agoodik or agooduk) is
    a classic native dish that is still popular today. Today's modern versions
    are usually prepared with Crisco, but traditional recipes called for meat
    and fat from caribou, moose, bears, seals, and fish."

    Those monstrosities were probably featured on Man Against Food or
    whatever the name of that show is. Most of them are what I call
    "stunt food". They are too much volume; never mind that they just
    plain look unappetizing. Nobody can eat that cr*p, but they will try
    it to win whatever prize is being offered. When restaurants give food
    names like Quadruple Bypass Burger, that's the first clue your leg is
    being pulled pretty hard.

    I still find it interesting how obsessed you seem to be with perfectly
    awful American foods.

    Inuit got 2/3 of their calories from fat. Polar explorers plan on
    consuming 5800 calories a day.

    Unfortunately, you're right. The USA may have the Gold Medal in the
    obesity stakes but we are trying hard for Silver. But the Germans and
    Poms are right up there with us.

    It's not just the fat - it's the excess of all things but mostly it's
    the carbs.

    Comparable dangerous-to-your health dishes include the Aussie meat
    pie, Pluto Pups, potato cakes or scallops, chips, chips and more
    chips. And cereal for breakfasts.

    But the good old meat (well, sometimes meat) pie is right up there in
    the excess of all things category. About 30gms of fat, 50 gms of carbs
    and variable protein. And it is usually eaten with a pile of chips
    (fries to USAians) adding another load of carbs and fat. Unfortunately
    they usually taste bloody marvelous, especially on a cold day at he
    footy.

    I eat half of one for lunch every two or three years and test my blood
    glucose afterwards to see if I've cured my diabetes.

    The results can be more dramatic than an OGTT with a pizza effect. I
    haven't cured it yet.

    Cheers, Alan, Australia.
