Numbers Game: Answer

Del Taco's "Macho" bacon-and-egg breakfast burrito starts the morning off with 1,030 calories, 100 percent of a day's worth of saturated fat, and 73 percent of a day's worth of sodium.

From a caloric standpoint, that's equivalent to almost three and a half Egg McMuffins!

Interestingly, consumer behavior reports are showing large increases in breakfast-to-go purchases.

According to the 2008 New American Diner Study twenty percent of consumers "always or often" eat breakfast away from home on weekdays.

On another note, isn't it rather pathetic that manliness is somehow equated to hyper-caloric, unhealthy eating?

Especially in a society where most men who eat these things proceed to sit at their desk all day and go home to sit on the couch and watch TV. No backbreaking, "MANLY" labor out in the blistering sun but just as many calories and more as it would take to sustain THAT sort of a life.
