Yes, we know fries are terrible for you. But I ain't eating just six at a time.

A Harvard professor is coming under fire after suggesting that people should eat only six french fries at once. Eric Rimm, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, made the comments in a New York Times article about how unhealthy fries are.

I had (more than six) fries today. I would’ve preferred a side salad, but at least I don’t have to worry about getting e.coli from the fries.

Six or seven fries is usually about all I will eat.

I only like them really hot. Like fresh-out-of-the-fryer hot. They cool off a lot in the space of a couple of minutes. Then they're not tasty to me any more.

DH will eat an entire basket of fries by himself, so even if I order something that comes with fries and there's no other option, I know he'll eat the ones off my plate, too.

I typically eat six fries at once. Then reach for another six fries.

every time you wipe your arse, you're getting e. coli on your hands through the paper regardless of how many times you fold it

There is a ND Doctor Peter Glidden, who says if he had a choice between smoking a cigarette and an order of fries he'd smoke the cigarette.

Fries are pretty awful for you, but the benefit is that if you see anything else terrible on a menu, you can usually justify ordering them instead of the fries and say to yourself “well, these are better than the fries I’d be ordering instead!” I do that often enough. I do order fries, but it is very often.

This reminds me of some diet/nutrition "advice" I read in a women's magazine many years ago: get a small order of fries, eat half, and throw the other half away.

(Obviously eating fries is not healthy, I think this was if you needed a cheat or if you were stuck at a fast food joint).

Six is way too many. I prefer two or three at a time. Till the box is gone.
