Watchdog blasts ‘X-treme Eating’

‘Chain restaurants in the United States are promoting dangerous “X-treme Eating”, a US watchdog has said.

They are serving up “ever-more harmful new creations,” says the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

It says that some individual dishes can exceed 2,000 calories, more than the recommended daily intake for women. [..]

“Rather than compete to make their products healthier, restaurant chains are competing with each other to make their appetizers, main courses, and desserts bigger, badder, and cheesier than ever before,” a CPSI statement said.’
