Trust me, you can never eat to much bacon. Especially if you make one of these.
I love eating bacon as a snack. But do you think one pack of bacon (6 strips or so) per day is too much?
If its good bacon (no weird additives/nitrate free) I don't think you're doing much harm. I try not to eat it every day, but i've eaten a whole pound in a day before (probably not ideal...)
I was listening to Chris Kresser's podcast the other day and he doesn't get very amped about nitrates. Apparently, you get about as much nitrate in one serving of arugula as in 400+ hot dogs.
Pork isn't the best as far as your Omega3:6, though.
Bacon is GOOD. Eating an entire pack in a day sounds fine, just watch out for the sodium if your sensitive to that. If not, then eat away and enjoy the bacon goodness.

Its meat....at least mine is. The list on my bacon is "pork cured with water, salt, brown sugar, vegetable juice powder, lactic acid starter culture (no nitrate or nitrite added except for what is naturally found in vegetable juice powder)". I put this in my "unlimited meat" category. Your run of the mill grocery store bacon....you might wanna put in the "moderate" category.
I can easily eat a lb of bacon a day, no problem. But I've moved more towards ground lamb. I LOVE lamb, I had no idea how much I love it until I impulse-bought a pound of "Moroccan lamb" at my hippy store. Nomz ahoy!
Based on the headline, I thought this was announcing a contest.
Yeah, that sounds like a challenge.
