    Wrong, wrong, wrong, WRONG! carbs are bad, period, who ever believes this article is high. 39 grams of carbs is an entire day for me. I am a diet controlled diabetic so yes I know a little about this.

      Carbs are not bad for you. Yes as a diabetic your carb intake should be lower because of the risk of high blood sugar. However carbs are not bad. I diet and my carb intake is around 150g per day.

      I am also a diabetic, a diabetic athlete at that. Carbs are an essential part of anyones diet diabetic or not. Carbohydrates are the main source of fuel for an active body, without it there would be no endurance sports, no Ironman, no Tour De France, and to he honest no armature sports related to the subject. As a triathlete I consume more carbs than a normal diet would entail. If you spend your entire day at a desk, and then decide to take up couch potato status for the rest of the day, then yes, your right, carbs are bad. Please don’t classify everything you think you know into a false general statement…on carbohydrate’s behalf, how rude!

    Knowing full well that as soon as I say ‘spinach’ my two guys will run for the hills, is it possible to freeze the other 5 patties?

    What is salt for water? Could you give an example of a name brand?

    What percent beef are we suppose to use?

  13. Avatar Matt says:

    A little mushy, I’m not sure how to firm this up without adding more calories.

    Maybe uncooked bulger would help it hold together more
