Double Down for a Double Bypass

Let’s all welcome KFCs new entry into the world of coronary fast food: The KFC Double Down. This is great for all of you low-carb fans out there. This sandwich has 2 fried chicken patties (acting as the buns) with 2 kinds of cheese, bacon, and a special mayo sauce in the middle. At just 540 calories, 32 g of fat, and 1380 mg sodium, it’s just like a Big Mac. And if you’re watching your waist, you can always go for the un-fried version and substitute 2 grilled chicken patties for the fried ones. That’ll only set you back 460 calories and 23 g of fat. By the way, the sodium is higher on the grilled sandwich, at 1430 mg, but that shouldn’t make much of a difference. If your doctor has told you to watch your sodium intake, you probably shouldn’t be eating at KFC (or any other fast food joint, for that matter).

Would you like a double-bypass with that order?
