Stupid Guy to Only Eat Bacon for a Month!

Dumb ideas, we’ve all heard them, like the Jump to Conclusions Mat and the Knife Wrench, both equally stupid. But they’re about to be topped! Some dummy has announced for the entire month of February he’ll only eat bacon—plus beer, wine, water and martinis. And he says his weight won’t change and his blood pressure may actually drop; via Fit Sugar.

Okay, let’s recap. Bacon bad, bacon very bad! Just last month a studied linked cured meats, such as bacon and hotdogs, with a higher risk of leukemia and a previous report showed processed meats and cheese speed up the growth of lung cancer tumors. Not to mention, foods rich in saturated fat, like bacon, lead to heart disease.

I like this idea better, get an entire city to go veggie for a month. As for me, the closest I get to bacon these days is the Haminal. He’s cuddly, cute and cholesterol free!

Sadly, that guy is Mike Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame. I met him at Dragon*con several years ago and he was a sweetheart.

I'm hoping that he doesn't go through with this. I love him.

He probably will lose weight. I know I would if the only food I could eat was bacon. Disgusting. I bet his health takes a serious nosedive if he can manage that for an entire month. It's stupid to risk your life in such a foolish endeavor.

Reminds me of the guy on "30 days" who ate nothing but McDonald's for a month straight; near the end he started experiencing all sorts of ailments like respiratory distress and his liver was starting to shut down.

Same thing is gonna happen to this guy eating nothing but bacon for a month straight...I would assume even if you ate a particular food which was healthy and ate nothing else besides it for a month, your health would still deteriorate.

Could this just be a public-relations fiction to promote bacon consumption?

Saturated fat does not lead to heart disease, processed simple carbs lead to heart disease. Why do you think the "low fat" craze has lead to even more health problems? Fat doesn't make you fat, and until people realize that we will continue on a downward spiral of sickness. There are many new books on the topic - Primal Blueprint, Cereal Killer, and Good caroies bad calories. Our bodies are programmed to eat meat and vegetables, some fruits, nuts and seeds. Not bread, pasta, sugar, soda, etc.
