Occasionally, during a bad day at work, I would get a comfort meal at the cafeteria. This meal consisted of a double Swiss cheeseburger and some steak fries. Of course it tasted great, but now that we publish the nutritional information for our cafeterias, I’m not so sure it was a good idea:

  • Hamburger Patty x2 = 640 calories, 54g fat, 34g protein, 2g carbs
  • Swiss cheese x2 = 214 calories, 8g fat, 8g protein, 0 carbs
  • Bun = 270 calories, 5g fat, 8g protein, 48g carbs
  • Fries = 600 calories, 32.4g fat, 3.8g protein, 35g carbs


  • 1724 calories
  • 99.4g fat
  • 53.8g protein
  • 85g carbs

(those numbers don’t add up properly since a 67g/50g/50g ratio for the burger should actually be 1003 calories)

That single meal has more calories than I intake in a full day now!

One thought on “”

  1. holy cow. that ranks at the very top of all fast food choices, right up there with the monster thickburger.

    on the other hand… burger… mmm.
