4800 Calories!!

A minor league baseball team, the West Michigan Whitecaps, is offering a 4,800-calorie cheeseburger on its ballpark menu that has been branded a "dietary disaster."

The four pound meal has five beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili, Fritos, salsa, nacho cheese, sour cream and lettuce and tomato all on an eight inch sesame-seed bun.

A local paper reports that anyone who can finish the behemoth burger all by themselves will get a special T-shirt.

The burger costs $20.

Who would want to tackle this challenge? This single burger holds more than two days of the recommended calories suggested for a human! Whoever does complete this challenge is not going to be feeling good the next day.

What is the need for a cheeseburger that has 4800 calories? Just goes to show how unhealthy restaurants and people can be. Cheeseburger such as this one contribute to the escalating obesity rates in America. If people did not have the option to each meals such as this, obesity rates would drop.

  1. That is so gross! 5 beef patties is a little much! And the combinations on the burger are ridiculous lol salsa? fritos? nacho cheese and regular? I wouldn't be surprised if someone dropped dead while eating it
