HUMOR: The Bacon Equivalent Calculator

Scientists at the Armour Institute have developed software that calculates “BE” .  The BE is better than the kilocalorie since it provides permission to eat things that are good for you, even if they have calories.

Here are a few examples:

Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza, 770 calories, 55 grams fat, 18 grams sat fat 16 BE
BBQ Ribs at Chili’s “as served,” 1,750 calories, 84 g fat, 29 g sat fat  26 BEChicken & Shrimp Carbonara, 1,440 calories, 88 g fat, 38 g sat fat 35 BE
