You're huge!

America is getting fatter and fatter and fatter. Hmmm. Let's see if we can get to the bottom of this shocking news...

•Amount of calories in one McDonald's Big Mac = 485
•Amount of calories in one Large McDonald's Fries = 540
•Amount of calories in one large Coke = 330
•Amount of calories in 16 oz. of Starbucks Whipped Mocha Malt Frappuccino Coffee = 570
•Total of the above = 1925 calories

•Amount of calories-per-day intake recommended for the average human = 1800

Wow, so, if an average American has the above for one of his meals, which is what it is—one meal (plus a Starbucks treat), he has the rest of the day to eat food that will total at least –125 calories. If you don't believe our math, which you probably shouldn't, this article sums it up nicely. So does this one. And please keep in mind we didn't even begin to chart all the calorie-filled booze you've been drinking.
