The question is why?

Apparently Arby's felt the need to reinvent its "Meat Mountain" sandwich.

If you're not familiar, the sandwich is stacked with more meats than what is likely eaten on Thanksgiving Day or Super Bowl Sunday -- two chicken tenders, turkey, ham, corned beef, brisket, steak, roast beef, a slice of Swiss and Cheddar cheese topped with a bun.

Well, after two years, the fast-food chain decided to add the one protein is was apparently missing, fish. Specifically Wild Alaskan Pollock.

Arby's calls it "Denali-style." And it doesn't cost more to have the fish, or to not have the fish.

Just for kicks, here is the nutritional information. It's 1,030 calories, has 87 grams of protein, 225 milligrams of cholesterol and 3,640 milligrams of sodium.

So, if you're feeling daring, it's available at Arby's locations. if you do take the challenge, do your friends and family a favor and take an antacid.
