Sorry I just saw a commercial that we need to discuss. (Even though I just finished a post.)

Consider this your health warning. I highly recommend you avoid the following meal...

It is the new Burger Melt from Friendly, and the commercial just flashed on the screen. This burger is created by placing a cheeseburger between two grilled cheese sandwiches. Yes you read that right- it's three sandwiches in one. Yes it has a piece of lettuce and slice of tomato for decoration, but other wise it is just a heart attack "weighting" to happen!

If you decide to put this into your body you should know the following stats:
Calories: 1030
Calories from Fat: 580 (over half of this sandwich is made of fat!)
Fat: 64 grams

Keep in mind the sandwich comes with a side of fries which adds more calories, so by eating all that food your body would go into some sort of food shock. And add in the soda and ice cream that typically become part of a meal like that and your in even bigger trouble.

My suggestion avoid it completely. If you want a burger have a burger, if you want a grilled cheese sandwich have a grilled cheese sandwich- but please don't have them all at once, stacked together. Better yet, prepare them at home so you know what goes into it and can control the calories and fat.
