Stupid is as Stupid eats

5 04 2011

Working hard(ly) for you at the American College of Cardiology meeting here in New Orleans I just had to report on some real rocket science late breaking information. Walking by the Bubba Gump Shrimp factory and seeing (and tasting) these incredible fresh local offerings got me thinking. A recent study demonstrated that even after suffering a heart attack people can be stupid. The study found that 36% of the 2,441 people presenting with a heart attack ate fast food more than once per week. Over 800 people who ate fast food frequently prior to having a heart attack were interviewed 6 months after discharge from the hospital for their heart attack. At that time over half, 57%, were still eating the junk[i].I think Forrest was right, when it comes to eating fast food even after you have had a heart attack; Stupid is as Stupid eats….

You can lead a fool to veggies, but you can’t make ’em eat.
New Orleans? I’m so jealous!
Eat hearty, my friend.

How many calories are burned by cutting, chopping, searing, stirring, mixing and dining? Would love to know. Don’t get lost on Bourbon St!
