How Oprah tried to kill her own people.
Beef-fat Chicken®. The new red meat.

KFC got a big boost from Oprah, who under the auspices of helping out her people, announced on her show that KFC was giving away free samples of its new grilled chicken. Normally, this would pass right over my head without a notice, except that my formerly vegetarian colleague who has recently gone Dave Ramsey insane and will stop at nothing (including his health) to save a buck, went to KFC, stood in line for 45 minutes so that he could save $6 on lunch and try and kill himself with crappy fast food.

Take a look at the ingredients in the new grilled beef-fat chicken. If it's been awhile since you grilled your own chicken you might recall that the only ingredients really needed are chicken, a little oil to keep the chicken from sticking to the grill, and spices. The spices can be as simple as salt and pepper. Anything else, including fresh lemon juice or herbs is only to add a little zip.

What does KFC add for the zip? Beef powder and Beef fat! And Sugars. Yum. Nothing like taking what could potentially be a healthy meal and making it a deadly killer.

And what exactly does marinating the chicken in this slaughterhouse marinade do for the meal? Check out the calories and fat content. The free meals give away the fattiest part of the chicken, the leg and the thigh. Over half the calories in these pieces come from fat, more than 25 percent of which is saturated. And you also get a 130 mg dose of cholesterol and a 520 mg dose of sodium to go along with it.

This doesn't include the sides which can be healthy (green beans) or not (mashed potatoes with gravy or even worse the honey bar-b-que sauce) or a biscuit. The mashed potatoes can triple your calories and nearly double your fat intake.
