I love a cooked breakfast once in a while, but could I eat one of the largest breakfasts served in the UK which consists of 8 eggs, 12 rashers of bacon, 12 sausages, potatoes, mushrooms, hash browns, black pudding, beans and 12 slices of bread. The answer is a definate No! This breakfast, however, is on sale in a cafe in the UK for a cost of £15. If you can manage to eat it you get your money back.
You can watch the video about this enormous breakfast here.
This breakfast weighs a staggering 9 pounds, the same weight as a small child !
The video about this enormous breakfast is part of a BBC series about how Britain’s weigh on average 3 stones more than we did 50 years ago. It seems that the eating habits of some Americans, with their super sized portions has caught on over here.
The problem with TV programmes like this is that they can glamourise this type of eating behaviour. In fact there is a programme on one of the channels called Man vs Food where the presenter travels around trying to find super sized eating challenges. Having seen the programme once it made me feel ill just watching it.
If we are all going to get bigger it raises questions about the size of aircraft seats and other similar things as well as the most important things – our health so ….TV producers please do not make TV programmes about over eating glamourous!
