Because I'm a recovering fat guy, breakfast is not exactly a time of joy in my house. Here is the menu nearly every day: glass of orange juice, bowl of Special K cereal with berries. Oh, do I know how to live it up or what? There are times when it's so boring that I fall asleep with the spoon in my mouth. On the weekends, to really cut loose, I'll have a whole-wheat bagel with jelly instead of the cereal. OK, that probably makes your mouth water. Sorry, I shouldn't do that. Then I read the other day that Hardee's, the maverick fast-food chain, just introduced its newest artery-clogger, something called the Country Breakfast Burrito.

LET'S BEGIN with the premise that you like to eat fast food and you don't get all weepy each time you step in front of a mirror and see two chins and your gut spilling over your belt. You don't go to Burger King for the Fire-Grilled Garden Salad, and you don't care how much weight that whiny Jared lost at Subway. And for you, the darkest day in American history was the day McDonald's announced it would no longer super-size its drinks and fries. Pal, this one's for you. Because this one's about Hardee's new Monster Thickburger, and you sound like the target customer.

In a case that could shape the job market for 14- and 15-year-olds throughout the nation, Maryland argued yesterday that Hardee's Food Systems Inc. committed illegal age discrimination when it fired all of its 14- and 15-year-old employees.Hardee's, based in Rocky Mount, N.C., fired more than 2,000 workers nationwide under the age of 16 in 1991, claiming that a federal crackdown on child labor laws was making it too risky for the fast-food chain to employ the youngsters.But in her opening arguments of what is expected to be a weeklong administrative hearing, Sally Swann, an attorney for Maryland's Human Relations Commission, said the dozens of fired Maryland teen-agers should not be punished simply because Hardee's was afraid it would inadvertently violate the child labor laws.

Welcome home, Roy.Things haven't been the same along the old Ritchie Trail since your chuck wagons were sold to Hardee's.They took down your friendly signs with the sun peeking over the mountains. Broke up the Fixins Bars. Replaced your grub with some corporate guy's idea of fine dining.When they got done, the only thing left was the chicken. Fine way to treat a western legend.But you can't keep a good man down, right Roy? Instead of riding into the sunset, you started making records again.

McDonald's is offering Neopets - cute, cuddly animals - with its Happy Meals this month. Burger King is offering action figures from the hit film Fantastic Four. And Hardee's, not to be outdone, is offering a woman. Four of them, in fact. The perennial also-ran of American fast food is plastering color photos of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models on its large drinks. Four different models are featured ("Collect them all!" Hardee's urges), posing in bikinis on sunny beaches. The cups went on sale two weeks ago. Swimsuit models and fast food don't seem to go together - if the women ate much of it, they'd lose their jobs - but Hardee's is counting on the babes to lure young men into its restaurants.

THERE ARE only about 14 people in this country currently not on a low-carb diet, as Americans embrace the latest fad that promises they can lose weight while still stuffing their fat little faces and getting no exercise. This accounts for all the low-carb breads and low-carb pizzas and low-carb cookies on the market now, along with the low-carb beers, which have all the taste of tap water and promise even less of a buzz. Now there's this: the first low-carb fast-food burger. A burger without the bun. A burger with everything else - 1/3 -pound beef patty, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickles, cheese, blah, blah, blah.
