Hungry Man Sports Grill

I was just cruising the grocery aisle when I came across this TV Dinner. It’s 16 ounces of food. The box announces it in bold letters, “1 lb. of food!” That cheeseburger and cheese fries looked so good to me. I figured it must be pretty small considering how big the box was. I was shocked when I turned it over and looked at the nutrition facts.

Hungry Man Sports GrillAt 1110 calories, 66 grams of fat and 9 grams of fiber, that calculates to 27 Points on the Weight Watchers Flex Point Plan. Do you know how many points I’m allotted every day? 22 That one frozen dinner is a full 5 Points more than I’m supposed to eat every day (not including Flex Points).

If someone had shown me the picture and asked me to guess the points, I would have guessed 6 for the burger and 8 for the fries. I would have said 14 points, missing the mark by a full 13 points. I am so grateful that the FDA requires the nutrition facts on all food now. I would have eaten this monster and wondered why I didn’t lose weight.

I put the dinner back in the freezer where I found it…

    This line is da bomb. All tv dinners suck but these are actually edible and the cheese fries are quite tasty, do em in the oven though the microwave just makes em soggy.

    OR of course, one could simply realize that a cheeseburger and fries are by definition not going to be low-calorie.

    I have look at the hungry man all-day breakfast. That baby contains 1030 calories, 64 grams of fat (21 grams of it saturated), does not display the trans fat content, about 650 milligrams of cholesterol, over 2000 milligrams of sodium, and about 25 grams of sugar.

    Though the 650 milligrams of cholesterol ain’t a problem (Nope, diatery cholesterol are no longer a problem), the amount of calories is far too much, and all that hypertentionic sodium and an overindugement of saturated fats and unknown trans fats really is the main problem of this junk. Sure, although a meal huge in saturated fats does hamper HDL usage and raise LDL cholesterol, you still need some for vitamin D absorption, and some other health benefits. But over 20 grams of saturated fat in this hump is too much.

    If you want to eat a healthy dinner, why not buy a lean patty, some whole grain buns, and eat celery and carrots with peanut butter instead of this crud. It much healthier than these oversized piece of toxic.

    Alison fails to realize that exercise alone without a good diet is not the answer to a healthy body. A little more critical thinking and a lot less shooting from the hip will make her a fine college student.

    There are too many calories & sodium in this crap. Even kids can get heart attacks for eating this crap.

  7. J.D. Says:

    OR, get one of the other Hungry Man dinners. Even a Hungryman XXL. 8g of fat, 40mg cholesterol…Only problem may be the sodium. The ones I’ve had didn’t have nearly as much fat and carbs, etc. I havent even SEEN one with all that fat and junk in it.
