Everything at this place is REALLY salty. Don't worry about the fat. The sodium will get to your arteries first. No amount of exercise would reverse the bad things sodium could have caused to your bodies.

I'm glad there's this BOGO coupon so I can try out to see what SmashBurger is about. No thanks in the future, for the sake of my arteries.

This is my only real issue with smashburger. Even their grilled chicken sandwiches have a ton of sodium in them. The very reason I cannot eat here. Otherwise, good food.

I eat at ChickFilA regularly and the grilled chicken sandwich at Smash is way way much saltier compared to the one at ChickFilA. It's like pouring a salt shaker into my mouth with every bite. Yike!

Apparently you cant read. I gained 80lbs eating this crap. I lost 80lbs by not eating it.

If you think a 32oz soda and a big cardboard container of frozen potatoes boiled in transfats is healthy and good in moderation, you must have a lot of inbreeding in your background.
As long as you keep a caloric deficit, you shouldn't gain weight.

Not even remotely true. In practice you will find that when eating certain foods, your body will quickly convert those to stored fat, and others wont. Your body also uses certain foods as building blocks and others for energy. You can live your entire life without ever consuming a carb (for example) and your body cannot turn carbs into anything other than belly fat or energy.

I keep my caloric intake to about 1800 a day and walk about 2-5 miles on most days. I think 2000 is too many unless your work is physically demanding. I also see a number of studies dunning the idea of working out hard (or even much at all) as being counterproductive to weight loss. I dont go to a gym or do anything other than yard work, house work and walking my dogs. Yet I lost weight like crazy. In the old days when I hit the gym and used restrictive diets, I gained muscle but had a crazy appetite due to the excessive workouts, so I ended up a musclebound fat guy. shake head

You also have sustainability of the diet. Most people erroneously try to cut the simple carbs AND fat at the same time, when there is no evidence whatsoever that fat is bad for you. I eat a ton of fat, but minimal simple carbs and not a lot of complex carbs either. Its satiating, I have no blood sugar rollercoaster issues, I am very rarely hungry, and I've been eating this diet for 2 years without feeling deprived.

260 pounds eating whole wheat everything, whole grain everything, pasta, juicing, rice, potatoes, yada yada yada. Ate exactly what the doctor and the hospital nutritionist said. No white sugar or flour. And kept gaining weight.

174 pounds eating none of that crap, just meat, whole fruits and whole vegetables that grow above ground, berries, coconut meat and oil, some nuts, seeds, lots of butter.

A calorie is not a calorie. Trust me. And our food pyramid is upside down.

You've gotta keep up with current events. Not only is salt not bad for you at all, we probably need to eat about 3x what the RDA says we need to remain healthy. Further, we're seeing iodine deficiencies in people again, just like 100 years ago when we fixed that problem by adding it to salt.

Turns out the guys who ran the salt tests eliminated data that would have brought forward different conclusions, because they wanted to be right.

Salt happens to make a lot of healthier foods taste better. My kid will eat vegetable sticks all day long if I put salt on them, but isnt too interested otherwise. Avoiding it is therefore counterproductive.

Yowshie!!! My cardiologist gonna yell at me on the next visit!

Max daily sodium intake is around 1,500mg http://www.cdc.gov/features/dssodium/

Some burgers ALONE are three times this amount!LOL.
As much as I dislike fastfood nazis, I must agree. I tried this place last time the coupon posted to get 2 regular chicken sandwiches with just lettuce and tomato and they were so salty I could not eat them.

When I encounter a stroke, can I send you my hospital bill? Will you still be there to "support" your above claim?


Don't think so. I'll play chicken and stay on the safe side. You're asking me to "gamble" my health based on some internet claims. No thanks. I"ll stick to common sense. Salty diet has been PROVEN a leading cause to high blood pressure, which will bring many UNWANTED result(s) afterwards.

You go ahead intaking as much salt as you want. Eat what you think taste good..........and think about the consequences later!

BTW, in regards to the bold quoted part of your response, I"ll say this to you "Don't open your mouth and remove all doubt!"

LOL @ the people debating health concerns. "I'm feeling healthy tonight, I think I will get a smash burger, smash fries, and a soda" has never been uttered by anyone. If you have no self control around food and can't eat in moderation than by all means stay away from it. Those of us who understand "moderation" will continue eating our favorite foods on an infrequent basis and remain as healthy as anyone else.

I personally place Smashburger over five guys on my preference list. I do like In-n-out better but I can only have it when visiting family in Cali.

The taste buds of most people tend to cross over from the "moderation" line to the "I'm addictive" line in no time. That's why these places make their food greasy and salty, to get your taste buds hooked on.

Same thing can be said for alcoholics. You never know when moderation becomes a problem.

Yep, eating salt causes a temporary uptake in fluid into your bloodstream until your kidneys remove it. Usually 10-15 points or less for a few hours.

Running up a few flights of stairs can knock your BP up 20-25 points. Better cut that sort of crap out right now, mister.

This is the biological plausibility that started the witch hunt for salt. Yet every single study ever done until Intersalt showed no correlation between salt and health.

Intersalt removed about 40% of the initial data, then scrubbed a little more later. Any patient who ate salt and had good health was removed, as the study operators determined that if they said they ate salt and didn't develop health issues, they obviously must be lying about their sodium intake.

Intersalt was soundly criticized in peer reviews for this, and subsequent studies (which I linked to, but you apparently chose not to read) showed not only no link between salt reduced diets and health, but a problem of insufficient salt intake by most healthy people.

TL;DR every single hands on study that evaluated salt restricted diets over multiple decades showed no improvement in life span or instances of heart disease by restricting sodium intake. The only studies that showed any correlation removed data contrary to that finding. Subsequent studies analyzing all the data show negative correlation between reduced sodium intake and health, meaning most do not eat enough.

Now if you have a heart condition and are advised by a doctor to restrict dietary intake of anything, you should follow that advice. If you're a healthy person, you can eat all the salt you want. Science says so. Some truly bad science said otherwise.

Here ya go...

http://ajh.oxfordjournals.org/con...1.abstract

"Conclusions Sodium reduction resulted in a significant decrease in BP of 1% (normotensives), 3.5% (hypertensives), and a significant increase in plasma renin, plasma aldosterone, plasma adrenaline, and plasma noradrenaline, a 2.5% increase in cholesterol, and a 7% increase in triglyceride."

Bottom line: for a ~1% reduction in BP in healthy people, you get to pick up a ton of other problems. Even for hypertensives the BP reduction is hardly worth the effort.

Wait until you see the stuff about how the most popular blood pressure medication given out over the last few decades was less than beneficial...

http://ebm.bmj.com/content/10/3/74.full

"MAIN RESULTS
8 RCTs met the selection criteria. 2 major comparisons were made. Atenonol compared with placebo or with untreated controls (4 RCTs, n = 6825). Mean reduction in blood pressure (BP) attributed to atenolol ranged from 4.0–18.0 mm Hg systolic and 2.9–11.0 mm Hg diastolic. The groups did not differ for MI, stroke, cardiovascular mortality, or all cause mortality (table). Atenolol compared with other antihypertensive drugs (5 RCTs, n = 17 671). Mean BP change with atenolol compared with alternatives ranged from –1.0 to 1.1 mm Hg systolic and −1.0 to 0.5 mm Hg diastolic. The rates of stroke, and cardiovascular and all cause mortality were greater in the atenolol group than in the other antihypertensive drug group (table). The groups did not differ for rates of MI (table)."

Extra reps OP!

Took both coupons to smash burger today. Not only was the guy more than happy to stack the two, he didn't know how to enter the "free side" one and after swiping the override card a few times and pressing a bunch of buttons the order came out to:

2 x Big Smashburgers (reg $6.99 ea)
2 x Smash Fries (reg $1.99 ea)
Total: $3.97 LMAO

I have no idea what he pressed but for no apparent reason at all he entered a coupon for -$7.29 at the end after he already took off a burger.
