OK, that should be obvious. But just in case anyone is already salivating over KFC’s current Tuesday-only offer of nine pieces of original recipe chicken for $9.95, let us remind you: those nine pieces amount to more than 8000kJ. Eat all that and you’re on a one-way trip to Lardsville (with a likely stopover at Vomit Junction).

KFC’s nutrition guides suggest that two pieces of chicken run to around 1785kJ. Taking the oft-quoted figure that a typically daily intake for an adult should be no more than 9000kJ, that strongly suggests that you should have no more than two pieces, accompanying your meal with some vegetables and other, healthier options.
As such, the $9.95 deal is a cheap basis for a family meal or a bargain lunch for you and three mates from work. But it’s not a wise move for one or two people.
