…it’s because you aren’t eating enough! At least, according to Taco Bell’s new campaign. They’ve introduced what they call “The Fourth Meal,” which is supposed to be that forgotten meal between dinner and breakfast. (They’ve even created a website but I’m not going to bother linking to it.)
I know that the current advice by health experts is that we should all eat six small meals a day, roughly 200-300 calories each (depending on each person’s needs). But this is Taco Bell. They aren’t advocating responsible eating.
I find the whole idea really irresponsible. It’s not like Taco Bell needs to remind night owls that they’re open late. Trust me, night people know.
Recently I read a small news article (that I’ve lost so I can’t cite it exactly) about a sports stadium up North that has started serving a hamburger with a huge, powdered-sugar doughnut as a bun.
And then there’s The Onion, on top of dietary trends as always, with an article about how meat is the new condiment.
So in case you’re feeling famished, these ideas might help you to attain the ideal shape–a perfect circle.
