The “Ulti-meatum” burger definitely puts most unhealthy food creations to shame. This 10,000 calorie meaty monstrosity, created by the team at Mister Eaters Fish and Chips Shop in Preston, England is a triple threat, containing three deep-fried cheeseburgers—the middle one of which is literally a “burger within a burger” — with all of the fixings. Mister Eaters will be creating a challenge for charity for anyone who thinks that they can “eat the beast” in a certain timeframe.
Corinne Clarkson, owner of Mister Eaters Fish and Chips Shop, got the idea for the burger after seeing it featured on “The Regular Show,” a Cartoon Network cartoon. She had only seen multiple failed attempts to re-create the “burger within a burger” online.

“Us being us, no strangers to wild and wacky creations, we saw that failure as a challenge and thought that we would have a go at this seemingly impossible to make burger,” said Clarkson. “Me personally, I would not give it a go at eating it, not the whole thing in a time limit anyway. I have sampled the burger inside the burger and it was delicious.”
Think you can handle the challenge? It will cost you around 30 U.S. dollars.

FleurBurger 5000: Expensive Burger, Not a Robot (Even Though That's What Its Name Sounds Like)
The restaurant boasts a luxurious and eclectic menu with items like Kushi Oysters, Diver Sea Scallops Borscht and, of course, the world's second most expensive hamburger. (The most expensive hamburger can also be found in Las Vegas at The Palms and is, in fact, a Carls Jr. burger paired with an extremely expensive bottle of Bordeaux, which sells for $6000).
The FleurBurger 5000, as it is called, consists of a Wagyu beef and foie gras burger patty topped with truffle sauce and shaved black truffles, served on a brioche truffle bun. Like its more pricey brethren at The Palms, the FleurBurger is served with a bottle of Bordeaux: a 1995 Chateau Petrus, which typically goes for about $2,500 a bottle. But that's not all! The wine is served in Ichendorf glasses, which you get to take home at the end of the meal. And in case you were worried that the receipt would not be enough proof for your buddies that you were able to spring for such a decadent meal, a certificate of authenticity will be mailed to your home. Which begs the question: doesn't that violate Vegas' sacred mantra, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas?"
10 Healthy Snacks Every Stress Eater Should Keep Handy
Stress eating gets the best of us&mdashyes, even nutrition editors. If you're anything like me, a looming work deadline means you're 95% likely to finish that family-size bag of buttery popcorn on your desk. But your brain doesn't need a steady stream of empty calories to be productive and alert. So we asked Jen McDaniel, RD, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, how to quiet that inner Cookie Monster and prevent overeating. First, she says, pick snacks with a combo of nutrients that leave you satisfied and focused without an energy-sapping blood sugar crash&mdashthink: fiber-rich carbs plus a bit of fat or protein. As an added bonus, you can pick foods that have proven stress-busting qualities. (Take back control of your eating&mdashand lose weight in the process&mdashwith our 21-Day Challenge!)
Here, McDaniel offers snack ideas for even the most frazzled of us.
2 stalks celery + 2 Tbsp almond butter (or try one of these easy nut butter recipes) + 1 Tbsp raisins. Energizing carbs and filling fiber, fat, and protein&mdashthis snack's got it all.
½ c chopped dates + ¼ c rolled oats + ½ c nut butter, all mixed together and formed into 12 to 14 bites. The perfect treat, or even on-the-go breakfast, to satisfy a sweet craving while keeping blood sugar stable. (Or try one of these 3 no-bake energy bar recipes.)
These are comforting and can help calm your jittery digestive tract. Chamomile specifically has been shown to ease anxiety and irritability while green tea contains the amino acid L-Theanine, which provides a focused calm. (Here's how to brew the perfect cup of tea every single time.)
1 slice whole wheat toast + 1 Tbsp peanut butter + ½ banana + drizzle of honey. Foods that remind us of childhood are naturally comforting and calming, and this one just happens to be healthy, too.

Boca All American Classic Veggie Burger
Nutrition: 120 calories, 4.5 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 350 mg sodium, 5 g carbs (4 g fiber, 0 g sugar), 15 g protein
Ingredients: Its base is mostly made of soy protein concentrate and reduced-fat cheddar cheese and contains caramel color.
Appearance & Consistency: At first glance, this patty looks like the result of a lab experiment: Its surface boasts odd-looking craters and the texture was too similar to that of an old sponge.
Taste: Although Boca's aesthetics weren't too pleasing to the eye, its flavor wasn't as revolting. Sure, it packed an initial sour punch and somewhat tasted like an overdone chicken burger however, it still managed to get pretty close to tasting like poultry while maintaining a meat-free ingredient list.
Eat This, Not That! Verdict:
This burger was bouncy. So much so, that my fork almost recoiled from it like frightened prey. I can't imagine stacking this on a toasted roll since the texture was so bready and dense on its own. I surely wasn't a fan of the fake meat flavor, and what's more, the addition of caramel color didn't do much to improve this burger's lowly grade.
Weight Watchers Cookies Baking Tips
Double the Batch
If you have a cookie monster in your house (like I do), just make a double batch and freeze any of these so you can pull them out for the family.
You can freeze the cookies or just freeze the dough. I like to put the dough in a roll like the premade cookies you can buy. Slice them and bake them!
If there are healthier cookies readily available, there's no need to buy the higher calorie versions, right?
Tip for Portion Control
And here's a tip to help you with portion control. Place the the dough cookies on the cookie sheet (watch the size- this makes 36 cookies) but don't bake them. Instead, freeze the cookies right away.
Once the cookies are frozen, put them in a plastic zip-close freezer bag. Any time you want a fresh-baked cookie, take one out of the freezer and bake it. Not only will you be able to enjoy a delicious freshly baked cookie on-demand, but you won't be tempted to enjoy five! You're welcome!
Buy Good Baking Sheets
Also, make sure you have a good quality cookie sheet. You'll want even baking for your delicious treats.
A cookie sheet that doesn't distribute heating evenly can ruin half the cookies you spent time making. It really does make a difference!
I've also fallen in love with these baking mats! They keep your cookie sheets in good condition and save money on foil or parchment paper.

First of all, it's okay man. We've all been there. Binging habits are fucking hard to break, just like any habit. It doesn't make you weak, and it doesn't mean that you failed. You had a bad day. Or, maybe, you had a wonderful, delicious day and a lot of regret. It doesn't matter. You can't change the past.
However, those silly calories don't change the fact that you are a badass that is working hard to change your lifestyle. It doesn't take away the three days you spent at the gym last week, and it doesn't unburn the calories from your runs. In fact, it was kind of fun. You don't want to make a habit of it, for sure, but you also don't want to be afraid of eating food. Eating food is not the enemy. Moderation should always be strived for, but that doesn't mean that food is the enemy. It's just not the only reward.
So you ate 5,000 calories yesterday because you had a giant ass stromboli left over from your *actual* cheat day on Friday, and then you said fuck it, and you ordered a sandwich and some froyo. Then you had eat dinner, because even though you had already consumed bookoo calories, like five hours had passed, and you know that you get sick when you don't eat three meals a day. They don't have to be huge meals, but it's bad to starve yourself. So instead of crying, or hitting the gym immediately (youɽ get hella side splints right now), or feeling sorry for yourself for being a binging failure yet again, you just start drinking water. A lot of water. A lot of LEMON water. Like, 3000 ml of lemon water. And you feel bloated and shitty, but god dammit, you keep drinking that water. Then, a few hours later, you take a heavenly shit. At least a third of that food you ate today is now out of your body. So you Keep. Drinking. Water. You do some yoga, and you go to sleep.
The next day, you wake up. You realize that even though that was probably one of the worst binges that you've ever been on (but definitely not the worst), you're only a little bloated from yesterday. You drink some coffee, take a normal shit, and you start to feel close to normal again. You know you won't get 100% back today. But you go to gym now that it won't create more problems then it would solve. And you work up a good sweat, and you remember why you decided to try to live a more healthy lifestyle. You like the way it makes your body feel when you care.
And then the next thing you know, you're right back on track. Because even though you feel bad at it sometimes, you're not. You're actually pretty good at this -- it's just not an easy thing to do.
Benefits Of Wild Game Vs. Conventional Meats
Wild game is surprisingly leaner, relatively higher in Omega-3 fatty acids, lower in cholesterol (due to the low saturated fat content), as well as devoid of steroids, antibiotics and other additives because of their natural origin and active ways of life. 2
When compared to domestic animals such as cows and chickens, game meats have an average of 4.3% fat while their domesticated competitors typically have a fat content of 25-30%. Not just any fat either. We’re talking a lot less saturated fat (aka the bad fat) and a much higher proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids (aka the good fat). Additionally, the protein, vitamin, and mineral composition of wild game stands to compete with its domesticated competitors, especially when it comes to zinc and iron. This is due to their natural diet of wild vegetation as opposed to grain and corn. 3
And let’s not forget about the clinical implications of high saturated fat diets, such as chronic inflammation, which is a significant contributor to dozens of chronic diseases. 4 Recent studies from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have even found positive associations between red meat intake and liver cancer, while game meat or “white meat” may be associated with reduced risk. 5 Sound like a pretty great deal, right?
It’s worth mentioning that until roughly 10,000 years ago, domesticated animals did not exist. People had no option but to hunt for wild game, which we now know is very lean and contains a healthier ratio of fatty acids. Wild game is the original grass-fed, free-range, sustainable meat source. So get in touch with your primal self and eat the meats that made us human. Your body and taste buds will be glad you did.
