It is a large serving though, so keep that in mind.

The central planners in Venezuela have really done a number on their economy. We’ve been following the meltdown there for a while. Slowly but surely the place has fallen apart. No soap. No toilet paper. No french fries. No beer.

That’s right, no beer. At least the last time we checked in the national brewery was on the edge of collapse. A Latin American country without beer is not a good thing for anyone. And no papas fritas to soak it up?

So if you want to eat “healthy” by force, if you are looking for a new diet plan and you don’t have too many hangups around hygiene and murder rates, hop a flight down to Caracas. They will help you achieve your desired weight one way or another.

Viva Socialismo!
