This study is supposed to serve as a warning, but for me, it’s a to-do list.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest just released their annual report on the most absurdly unhealthy items at chain restaurants in 2016. Here’s the top five . . .

  1.  Applebee’s Build Your Sampler appetizer. If you pick cheeseburger egg rolls, pretzels and cheese dip, chicken quesadillas, boneless wings, and spinach dip, it comes to 3,390 calories, 65 grams of saturated fat, and 11,650 milligrams of sodium.
  2.  Maggiano’s Marco’s Meal For Two. Even if you pick the “lighter” options for an appetizer, pasta, and dessert, you’ll both still eat at least 2,840 calories and 79 grams of saturated fat.
  3.  Cheesecake Factory’s Fried Chicken and Waffles Benedict. If you get this for brunch, it has 2,580 calories and 86 grams of saturated fat.
  4.  Dave & Buster’s Short Rib and Cheesy Mac Stack. This sandwich has short ribs with mac-and-cheese on top for 1,910 calories and 42 grams of saturated fat.
  5.  Sonic’s large Grape Slush with Rainbow Candy. You’ll drink 970 calories and one-and-a-quarter cups of sugar.

You’d THINK your phone has made your LAZIER . . . but is it secretly pumping up your biceps?

A new study found the average person picks up their phone 1,500 times a DAY. That seems high, but think about it . . .

Assuming you’re awake for 17 hours, that’s about three times every two minutes . . . which doesn’t actually seem THAT unrealistic.

That means you’re doing a bicep curl of about four ounces every time you pick up your phone . . . for a total of 375 pounds of lifting during the day. How are you not more ripped, bro?

The study also found we use our phone for around 22.9 total hours per week . . . so you’re spending approximately one full day each week using your cell phone.

Two-thirds of people say picking up their phone to check it is such a reflex they do it a lot of the time without even thinking about it.
