    How bad are doughnuts

    Oh dear. I found this on youtube and was so excited by the idea. Am I bad?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKucAzdkCYU


    My new goal is to lose weight then eat lots of doughnuts and then ride. Will these infernal temptations never cease! Is there a Tour de KFC?

    We have a Tour De Donut here in Ohio. This years date is Sept. 6th. Here's a link, but they don't have the flyer done yet:
    http://www.colavitaohiocycling.com/DONUT.htm
    It's a 38 mile road race. You go through 3 check pionts were you get a 5 min. deduct off you time for every doughnut you eat. Of course the goal is negative time. I think last years winner ate 11, not sure though.

    When our Krispykremem store first opened somwhere around 2001/2 there were lines long enough to require police assistance to keep the roads moving. Flash forward a few years and mysteriously the Adkins craze finally got enough people to stop buying doughnuts... what they didn't realize they were bad before? Here is the funny thing. The Krispy Kreme store went out of business about 2 years ago and then was replaced by a GMC "Health" store. Now that is ironic!

    Happy riding,
    André

    It's not so much the actual calorie count for one of these things so much as it's what those calories are composed of. Doughnuts are bad. I love 'em, but they are sufficiently bad that I'll eat maybe half a dozen a year and acknowledge that's too many. Personally, I'll make my dietary indulgences from better prospects. If you're trying to correct a serious dietary related problem, then incorporating foods like donuts and fried chicken is pretty stupid. It's not about "food police" or "health nazis", rather, making intelligent choices as an adult interested in living a decent life. How long until obesity gets classed as a mental disorder as well as a medical one?



    Simple glazed Krispy Kreme donut. Nothing fancy.

    I never met a doughnut I didn't like. At 5"9" and 154lbs I can't say that I'm overweight. I guess it all depends on how many you eat.

    Donuts are like Strychnine, as far as I'm concerned

    That said, they're rather tasty too

    This year will be my 8th Tour de Donut in Staunton, IL. It's a fine ride/race, with the winner often downing more than 20 donuts. The most I"ve managed is 2. The ride always has between 500 and 600 people in it, and the town has a festival with a barbeque competition on the same day.

    Donuts, cheese burgers, fries, cola, and chips. I lived on that stuff till triple bypass at age 58. What was once a normal weekly consumption of above is now an annual consumption. Except for soda, managed to give that up completely. Actually believe my last donut was at the Bucks County Covered Bridge ride.

    Is there not an easy solution. Switch to bagels. Don't think they are deep fried.

    You should come to the Iowa State Fair sometime. Ever had a fried Twinkie? Or a fried Oreo? What about a fried Snickers? You can walk through the fair and gain 5 pounds just by smelling the food.

    mmm...yummy. Had deep fried Snickers, Mars bars, and Reese's PB cups, all dipped in batter and deep fried. You can usually get them at fish and chip shops.

    Oh my god! What have I started here? I thought we were supposed to encourage each other to lose weight!

    That's it. I'm giving up the healthy eating. Let's import the Tour de Doughnut acroos the pond to the UK. Maybe we can get a petition together to call for the first stage of the Tour de France to be in the UK again but with the addition of gourging on doughnuts every 10 miles. Or maybe a pub stop every 10 miles. That might be popular.

    Krispy Cream??? You guys make me laugh. Theres a good old fashioned bakery in Munising Michigan. I stop there once a year and buy a dozen assorted doughnuts. The box weighs about ten pounds. I'll eat one and I'm done. Not even my 13 year old can put a major dent in that box. Makes you just want to have a cup of coffee and a cigarette to finish it off. Ahh, I long for the days of old. It truely is a different world now. It's not a better one either to tell the truth.

    Krispy Kreme, tried one, once, more expensive then Tims or Country Style, not as good, that's why the local KK store has a sign in the window, it says "For Rent".

    Ha ha, sorry. I just can't believe some of the stuff they have at the Fair every year - honestly a lot of it I think would make me sick. I usually go to the Cattleman's booth for some good beef or the Pork Producer's booth for a tenderloin, then the Dairy Association's booth for an ice cream cone. Not real healthy, but at the fair you end up walking around for 8+ hours in the August heat (in Iowa, that's usually 80 - 90°, with high humidity). Obviously the real concerns are water and sunscreen. Between the good-tasting/bad-for-you food, beer and heat I'm always surprised that there aren't a ton of medical issues every year.

    I often calculate my rides in terms of donuts or other goodies.

    A staple of my summer weekends is the outdoor barbecue. One burger, smothered in condiments was the equivalent of 30 minutes on the bike. The full blown meal would be 90-120 minutes.

    Wanna eat, gotta ride.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
