The average active adult needs 2,000 calories per day in order to function in a safe and healthy manner. If I’m active to the point where I consistently run 1+ hour every day, then it is far more likely that my caloric needs are around 2,400-2,500.
Considering that, a meal of 1,200 calories would perfectly suit my needs. It would supply roughly half of my calorie requirements, which is a God-send since a fast food meal is relatively cheap. It’s a great value, especially if I don’t have much time to cook or have the resources to prepare my own meals!
The average burger is going to supply me with significant protein and carbs. That’s exactly what I’d need in order to build more muscle and have enough energy to make it through a workout. Even the sugar within the meal can be beneficial in supplying me with a boost of energy and can stop me from feeling hungry for a prolonged period of time. Not half bad.
Is this the most healthy meal known to man? Of course not. But it’s still a very reasonable deal and the calorie count is well within the average adult’s daily needs.
Don’t let calories scare you! You need them. If you were capable of burning off an entire meal within the hour, you’d probably be dead by now.
1200 empty calories in a meal
next to no nutrition. all the calories are sugar and fat. that’s it. you’ll have no energy and have glucose spikes in your blood because the lack of fiber because of the lack of complex carbs. this is diabetes in a meal.
so no, you should not be hungry for diabetes
Nutritionally, this BK meal contains roughly 28g of protein and 3g of dietary fiber. It potentially also includes 35% of our Vitamin C daily requirements, 2% Vitamin A, 12% calcium, and 27% iron. Of the 1,010 calories (that I could verify directly from the company’s nutritional information guide), only 410 are from fat. That isn’t a terribly significant amount of fat, in the long run, nor are the nutrients small enough to be viewed as negligible.
Eating this will not cause you to get diabetes. Eating this meal is perfectly fine if you do have diabetes, as long as you are able to adjust your insulin intake accordingly. So don’t use an illness as your debate point - Diabetic people are not a prop.
"So don’t use an illness as your debate point - Diabetic people are not a prop." I want that and variations of that on t shirts.
damn, man. Someone just got completely schooled by a nutritionist.

Photoshopping does more than alter our sense of body image in terms of weight. It also portrays false ideals of skin pigment.
CLOSE DISTANCE by JANNATUL MAWA
I first saw photographer Jannatul Mawa’s series floating around tumblr a few weeks back, and was instantly drawn at the sharp contrast of ‘upper class’ women and their maids. From even as simple a detail as posture, it can seem that both women in each image belong to completely different worlds.
Yet they are both inevitably bound together by the gender stereotype that considers the ‘home’ as strictly, a woman’s realm.
I love the capture of social diversity in each image that can open up an extensive dialogue about women, stereotypes, classism, domesticity… the list goes on!

What do you guys think? Do you see this work as just a statement about social class, or can we extend it to include such diverse (yet related!) topics?
