This Is Why You're Fat

Belly up to this website, home to photos of the world's most fattening foods



    This Is Why You're Fat
    If this Twinkie were on "This Is Why You're Fat" it would no doubt be deep-fried and possibly stuffed with jelly beans and dipped in milk chocolate. MMMM.

    There's chicken-fried bacon with ranch gravy; bacon-wrapped meatloaf with a layer of mac and cheese; a ham sandwich topped with no less than 11 eggs, sunny side up; a 7-pound hamburger--- of course. And anything that you can imagine battered and deep-fried: cupcakes, Tootsie Rolls, Oreos, oh my.

    This Is Why You're Fat is just that: A gallery of photos of over-the-top, desperately fattening culinary concoctions sent in by users all across the country (and, we imagine, the world - but really, where else are you going to find a 7-pound hamburger, Tuscany?). The site's slug, "Where dreams become heart attacks," is fairly apt, and while some images are frankly disgusting (junk-food pizza? Is that entirely necessary?) some make our arteries shudder with excitement. We're looking at you, chocolate-dipped bacon.
