Wanna know why your gut hits your ankles when you walk? Why your thighs have more ripples than the Gulf of Mexico in a hurricane? Why your ass is big enough to blot out the sun?
The "Twinkie Casserole" (24 Twinkies topped with caramel, mini marshmallows and brown sugar, topped with caramel icing), perhaps. Or the "Ultimate White Trash Hot Dog" (hot dog infused with cheese, deep fried, wrapped in bacon and fried again) or "El Nino" (ground beef, sauteed onions, sour cream, lettuce, tomato and cheddar cheese wrapped in a large pepperoni pizza).
These and all your cardiologist's greatest hits can be found at one of the world's most disgusting blogs: thisiswhyyourefat.com.

result--"This is Why You're Fat: Where Dreams Become Heart
Attacks"--went on sale last week. (Buy it here.)
It's the perfect antidote to Slow Food. Call it Slow Death Food.
