USDA: Frankfurter, wiener, or hot dog, NFS :roll_eyes:

Not terribly bad at all. In fact, sans bun and toppings, it’s even ketogenic with a fat:protein ratio of 2.4 fat grams : protein grams. Even the 3.13 grams of carbs per 100 grams works OK. To stay sub-20 grams of carbs per day, you could eat 6.39 dogs. At 332 kCals per dog, would total 2121.4 total kCals per day, which is in the ballpark of most folks to maintain.

Even the fatty acid profile is pretty good. SAD can be lots more crappy than this.

It might as well be. I don’t think this is any more factual than the Onion article. Although author might be serious; it sounds as though he’s getting ready for the Rapture.

At least the Onion got it right, even though joking. :grin:

He is admittedly getting ready for the rapture and you can buy his four books about it right there on the website.

Not a fan of the Rapture.
