McDonald's put MORE beef in its premium burgers ...

... and the pounds go on the hips of those that consume them, one imagines. Yes, McDonald's have launched a 'Third Pounder premium Angus Beef' burger in about 600 of its outlets in Southern California, priced at USD3.99 . It comes in three versions and the calorie counts range from 720 to 860!

In my pre-Atkins days I have to confess I did from time to gorge myself on a 'Big Mac', or even a 'Double Burger', but I doubt if I'll ever touch a fast food burger again - unless I'm in a place where Hardee's have an outlet; they always struck me as better, probably containing even more calories!
