Yum. The hamburger restaurant with a menu that boasts unhealthy foods. Fatty foods in large portions are bad for you. However in light of this, The Heart Attack Grill uses the potentially harmful nature of it's food a selling point.

Well, they´ll die eating, just like many obese people would like to, they enjoy food and often they go there to "end" it, which I can fully understand, I am currently 200 pounds which means well, but I am not ready to give up and I don´t feel like going to this restaurant at all, maybe for a butterfat milkshake, but that´s it. Why do those people go there? Look beyond "they are fat" and "they want to die", naaah it´s not that easy, the food will be delicious and they began to enjoy it long ago, who are we to forbid it? Considered they actually do something for social lives & payments, once an obese person dies, him or her will have way less health costs, which is a good thing for society, isn´t it? I know it´s a harsh & cruel way to look at it, but if you are realistic, that´s it, you can´t tell me you´d have a lot of life will, once you got over 350 lbs, you probably just want to eat and die, ofc only if it happens because of eating too much, not because you got an illness.
Just dont walk in the restaurant, why walk in? You wanna die? You wanna walk into your own grave?! Why do it? Why?
Do it once a week...No!
Dont even do it once a week, that was a bad suggestion.
Nix: Let's imagine... if you glimpsed the future, you were frightened by what you saw, what would you do with that information? You would go to... the politicians, captains of industry? And how would you convince them? Data? Facts? Good luck! The only facts they won't challenge are the ones that keep the wheels greased and the dollars rolling in. But what if... what if there was a way of skipping the middle man and putting the critical news directly into everyone's head? The probability of wide-spread annihilation kept going up. The only way to stop it was to show it. To scare people straight. Because, what reasonable human being wouldn't be galvanized by the potential destruction of everything they've ever known or loved? To save civilization, I would show its collapse. But, how do you think this vision was received? How do you think people responded to the prospect of imminent doom? They gobbled it up like a chocolate eclair! They didn't fear their demise, they re-packaged it. It could be enjoyed as video-games, as TV shows, books, movies, the entire world wholeheartedly embraced the apocalypse and sprinted towards it with gleeful abandon. Meanwhile, your Earth was crumbling all around you. You've got simultaneous epidemics of obesity and starvation. Explain that one! Bees and butterflies start to disappear, the glaciers melt, algae blooms. All around you the coal mine canaries are dropping dead and you won't take the hint! In every moment there's the possibility of a better future, but you people won't believe it. And because you won't believe it you won't do what is necessary to make it a reality. So, you dwell on this terrible future. You resign yourselves to it for one reason, because *that* future does not ask anything of you today. So yes, we saw the iceberg and warned the Titanic. But you all just steered for it anyway, full steam ahead. Why? Because you want to sink! You gave up! That's not the monitor's fault. That's yours.
We can officially end the debate between fats vs carbs because clearly, it's the FATTY, GREASY foods that are making people obese and contribute to heart disease, not carbs. I've even observed this in my own life, the trend I see is unhealthy obese people are consuming high protein, fatty, greasy meals and live an inactive lifestyle.
The incidence of cardiovascular diseases in the USA will quadrupled if their beef is as tasty as New Zealand as I witnessed American tourists who munched NZ McDonalds burgers and croaked "damn this beef is different from the American ones"
He knows he's a hypocrite, and admitted to it completely. I see no problem with this. He isn't the problem, idiot Americans are. The consumers KNOW it's bad, they just don't don't fucking care. And he has found a way to both voice that it is damaging to your health and can lead to a premature death and drastically reduced quality of life AND capitalize on it.
That's called the American Way.
Where else in America serves decent and proper portion sizes? Practically nowhere, perhaps at fine dining where you are forking out $150-300 a person, or at health food places, and even those a-holes load you down on the food. You got endless fountain drinks, and bottomless chips at mexican restaurants, endless condiments. They wanna narrow this down on this guy? The whole restaurant and food industry, and grocery stores are responsible. Non-linear sales marketing of products to consumers.
We can talk for an eternity about who is to blame, there is one, and that is the consumer, it is their decision. Start fat shaming the fuck out of these people again. Maybe they will learn to hate themselves just enough to actually do something about it instead eating themselves into an early grave. 29! God damn. That guy had no will to live he wanted to die, and die he did. But I guess he enjoyed the eating part of life. But I can guarantee he was depressed about everything else.
Shame them into motivating themselves to be better. I was a fat fuck, I lost 150lbs from shame, now I'm just chunky, I still hate myself to lose more....let the hate win. And come out better.
His method is beautiful. "Hi. I AM FEEDING YOU POISON. YES I JUST SAID THAT. DO YOU STILL WANT TO PAY ME TO FEED YOU POISON? OH YOU DO!? OK!"................See. He just removed any excuse you could think of as to why people are fat and unhealthy, and they still go for it. It's choice pure and simple.
I like the owner! :D Nobody forced anyone to eat those burgers. This woman is supposedly concerned, but the problem is that those kind of people often want to supervise you. Big government is always about 'helping' but once in power turns into a surveillance state, and the we have nothing to hide zombies go along.
USA seems proud of beeing stupid! Wish to see if intelligence increase if they only have money to eat. If you are looking for the most lower instinct you will find. It is cynical to say this is like humans use to be. Downgrade is cheaper than upgrade. And more dangerous.
Abc news stfu... If you dont want to eat it then dont... if you wanna tell other peeps to stop then go for it... but dont tell the owner to quit his shit because he isnt doing anything immoral or moral... literally making money off of fat people's happiness... he isnt forcing nor is HE even killing anyone... fake news...
but these producers won't get mad at mcdonald's? they talk about the way that he "is deliberately" trying to get people to buy more food but yet mcdonald's had a supersize option. even the salads at mcdonalds are over 500 calories. the man is informing people. mcdonald's doesn't.
I don't understand why they are trying to blame this man. People go there WILLINGLY without being forced, order those burgers despite all the signs written that it's not good for their health. He is making money and he is very much honest about the source of his money. People simply don't care about their health and he shouldn't be held responsible for their choices.
