Thanksgiving dishes missing from list of guilty pleasures
It's a good thing turkey isn't on
Forbes magazine ranked the top
ten best (worst) foods on the basis of
their high fat and calorie content.
The Daily presented the list of
favorites to students to see what was
Just awakening from turkey-
induced Tryptophan naps, most
students still had high-calorie
holiday foods on their minds.
Many were surprised to learn that
more Thanksgivings foods didn't
make the list.
"Gravy can't be good," LSA junior
Jasper Jinx said.
According to the Good
Housekeeping Thanksgiving calorie
counter, a serving of white and dark
turkey with gravy contains about
525 calories and 25 grams of fat.
Lasagna, which rounded out the
Forbes' list, has about 500 calories
and 30 grams of fat per serving.
Some students also said they
were surprised that their favorite
desserts, including pie, didn't make
"Cream puffs, that's got to be
straight calories," Jinx said.
A slice of pecan pie with a dollop
of whipped cream comes in at
504 calories and 27 grams of fat,
according to the calorie counter.
Pumpkin pie, on the other hand, is a
healthier choice, with an average of
282 calories and 16 grams of fat per
Adding ice cream, however, will
add about 160 calories and 11 grams
of fat per serving.
Sweet and mashed potatoes are
also low-fat options for the holidays.
Sweet potatoes are fat-free, and
mashed potatoes without butter
average about 4 grams of fat per
serving, and 5 fewer grams of fat
than bread stuffing.
A serving of ham is about 239
calories and 10 grams of fat.
Other than traditional holiday
foods, LSA senior Sid Gupta said
he was surprised to learn that fried
chicken contained fewer grams of
fat than French fries.
On average, French fries pack
about 200 to 600 more calories
and about 20 grams of fat more per
serving than fried chicken.
Several students were surprised
to see eggs Benedict with
hollandaise sauce on top of the
list, citing the relatively nutritious
reputation of eggs.

Doctors perform four
operations to remove
MIAMI (AP) - The 3-year-old
in the photograph had her mother's
nose, big brown eyes and two baby
teeth showing in her wide smile.
But by the time Marlie Casseus
was 14, what she saw in the mirror
bore no resemblance to the girl in
the picture - or any girl. Whatever
was under Marlie's skin looked like
a basketball, or two eggplants. All
that remained of her nose were two
distended nostrils. A single tooth
poked through the stretched mem-
brane of her upper lip. She had one
one night last year she stood at
the mirror in her family's home
in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, making
slashing motions with a knife, as if
she wanted to cut the massive defor-
mity out of her face.
Instead, that has been accom-
plished by a team of Miami doctors
who performed four operations to
cut away the 16-pound monster,
replace bone and release the girl
Dr. Jesus Gomez, the maxillo-
facial surgeon leading the teams
operating on Marlie at Holtz
Children's Hospital, says the mass
that engulfed her face probably
started growing when she was as
young as S.
"She didn't have any mouth. She
didn't have any nose," said Gomez.
He said her condition is a rare
form of polyostotic fibrous dyspla-
sia, a nonhereditary genetic dis-
ease, which affects every bone in
her body, though not to the severity
with which it disfigured her face.
Marlie's mother, Maleine
Antoine, says her daughter never
spoke clearly, and her permanent
teeth weren't appearing, but she
didn't worryuntil Marlie was Sand
she noticed two small bumps on
either side of the girl's nose. Marlie
also was beginning to complain
that her mouth and throat hurt
when she ate.
Haitian doctors could do nothing.
With no advanced medical imag-
ing in the impoverished Caribbean
country, no one could see that the
bumps weren't growing on the bone
- the bumps were the bone balloon-
ing and turningto jelly, riddled with
pockets of liquid and air.
What everyone did see was Marl-
ie's nose stretching into a snout, her
eyes sliding farther apart and her
upper lip pushing out past her chin.
She retreated home for good
when she was 12 and could no lon-
In the summer of 2005, Marlie's
father saw a news broadcast about
Gina Eugene, a Miami woman who
runs a Haitian children's charity
with her twin sister.
Eugene says the father called her
the next day, but only mentioned
"something little" growing on his
mass under Marlie's skin. Her upper
lip protruded like a second forehead,
and the wheezing girl supported her
head with her hands.
"I thought it was an animal with
a human body, or two heads I
didn't know what I was looking at,"
Her nasal passage blocked, Marlie
breathed and ate through what was
left of her mouth: a single, straw-
To eat, she mashed plantain into
a ball, laid her head on the table
and stuffed the fruit pulp down her
throat with a finger.
