    New 'Heart Attack Grill' features 8,000 calorie burger

    By Blake McCoy

    CREATED Oct. 10, 2011

    "I help make sure that you get as many calories as you can into that body," says nurse Stephanie Williams.

    The featured food item on the menu is the quadruple bypass burger. Eight thousand calories of beef, bacon and cheese.

    Need something to wash it down? How about a butterfat milkshake.

    "We garnish it with a tab of butter," says 'doctor' Basso. "I have never once claimed to be recognized by the American Medical Association. They refuse to recognize me."
    this is the same place that had an overweight customer die from eating their food last year...does a company have any responsibility in selling 'death' burgers or is it the customers problem for eating there or stupidity?

        I saw it  and it's making me really sick. When I saw the forum post I thought it was a joke. I can't believe there is really a restaurant named Heart Attack Grill!

    I think you should be able to sell anything you want.  But the time might be coming where similar rules apply to selling liquor to intoxicated people.... or a 'no fat' list liek the 'no fly' list wink

    Honestly, I guess people can mistreat their bodies as much as they like.

    When you think about it, food is addicting for many people as alcohol or drugs or cigarettes for others.. I've never seen the "food police" stop anyone from eating too much.maybe we should..roll

    I see nothing wrong with it. 

    The company is using the unhealthy menu as part of their sales pitch.  Nobody could claim they didn't know the food was unhealthy or that there are potential health risks from eating it. 

    Far worse are fast food joints selling salads with more fat and colories than many of their burger meals, falsely making people think they are eating healthy.  Even in those cases, I still say the consumer has ultimate responsibility to know what's going into their body.

    I'd try one of their 8k calorie burgers if there was one around my area.

    I just realized it's in Vegas and I'm planning a trip there this winter. I'm going to check out this place.

    At first I thought, well, since they're open about how many calories are in the thing, it's kind of OK. I can see "indulging" once a year or something just for fun if you're already kind of healthy.

    Then I just read here … grill-meal that anyone over 350 lbs doesn't have to pay for his meal. That feels kind of wrong to me.

    I have no clue how anyone could eat 8,000 calories in one go or how someone could really eat that thing without separating it into multiple burgers.

    I guess Michael Phelps eats 12,000 calories a day, so maybe for someone like him it's not a bad idea. tongue 

    I wonder what happens when someone actually has a heart attack or stroke while eating there. I'd think for some people even if that didn't happen they might need some medical attention after eating that much in one go and might get sick at the place. I've never been to Las Vegas, but maybe it fits in with the atmosphere well?

    Anyway, this article seems to have inspired me to go for a walk!!

    Some people still think that overeating is an innocent joke - it is NOT! It's a dangerous and life shortening habit. Don't be a pig.

    I have the occasional feast and the occasional day where I forget to eat entirely.  IMHO everything in moderation, including moderation.

    It's pretty much a gag.  I'm sure people get pictures taken to show their friends.  I don't see even "addicts" indulging in this with any regularity.  Far more dangerous are the 2000+ calorie meals at Cheesecake Factory and Dennys where they are not so up front about calorie content.

    The man who died from heart problems was actually a spokesman for the Tempe, AZ restaurant.

      Between eating sugar and bacon I would probably choose bacon - healthwise.

        Me too.  The case against sugar is much stronger including it's possible addictive properties.

          Or you can go for chocolate covered bacon and kill two birds with one stone.

          IMHO if a few friends order this for lunch I don't see it as very wasteful at all. A single pair of plastic earrings probably does more met harm to the environment.

    It's a disgusting waste of food when so many in the country can barely afford to feed their kids.

      That's the first thing that shocked me most when I came to Canada - senseless brainless waste of food everywhere. I had no idea how bad it was! They actually turn good product into a waste and then sell it for human consumption. Nuts!
