Ah, yes, KFC has eliminated all trans fats in their food. No more trans-fatty acids that seep into our bodies and brains, clogging our arteries, slowing our blood flow, scientifically proving that it makes us less intelligent. WHOOPEE! Lets all get in the car and head down to Colonel Sanders' house for a bite to eat!

Of course, we all know you'll take more than just one bite. Now that they've eliminated all of those bad trans fats, its ok to dig in to the Colonel's delicious meals! How about a five piece order of saucless hot wings? Mmm. Lets throw in a chicken and biscuit bowl for some added flavor. Desert? Well, now that the trans fat is gone, so is the guilt! Lets pile on 4 delicious, nutritious, chocolate chip cookies. Oh, i almost forgot, a medium Mountain Dew to go to wash it all down.

Lets look at the intakes:

Calories:
Mountain Dew=190
4 chocolate chip cookies=640
5 Hot wings=350
Chicken and biscuit bowl=870
Total: 2,050 calories
Now, the average adult male takes in 2,400 to 2,600 calories per day. That one "meal" at KFC is about 80% of that man's daily caloric intake. And dont tell me he's going home and eating okra, tofu and veggie stir fry. Oh no. He's eating more crap like that.
KFC the place to be because of no trans fat? Ha!

Clearly my opposition is underprepared, unintelligent, and overall, a complete boob when it comes to the concepts of nutrition. Shall i go into the saturated fat statistics?

Saturated Fat:
5 Hot Wings=5 grams
Chicken and Biscuit Bowl=11 grams
4 Chocolate Chip cookies=14 grams
Medium Mountain Dew=0 grams (come on, people, its soda)
Total: 30 grams

That, right there, folks, is 152% of your saturated fat intake for a day. 152%! Thats 1.52 time what you should be getting! It's not even healthy for you.

Kenicks, xxJimmyxx dosent know what hes talking about he is a wast of time I think. Its easy to see that he dosent care because he dosent take his time to spell things out, or to even say anything worthwile to read.
