How to say pointless in this context using Chinese?

 

I want to describe a burger as pointless, what is the best way to say pointless when describing food? Somehow 无意义的汉堡包 does not seem right lol.

For those that are thinking 'how can food be pointless?' I quite understand, but this burger is so big, you have no hope of eating it sensibly! It's a pointless burger indeed!

For learning: Chinese (Mandarin)
Base language: English

    I'm sure you are not talking about "垃圾食品", since you mentioned "no hope of eating it", maybe what you want to say is "吃不了", "吃不下", "吃不完", or if you want empasize its size against your mouth, then maybe you mean "咬不下", "无法下口", "没法儿下嘴".

    这汉堡这么大,根本就不是人吃的汉堡。

    也許可以說,讓你不知從何下手的漢堡包

     

    你可以说这个汉堡太大了,让我没有胃口。
    "没有胃口":的意思是不想吃它了。或者不想吃东西。
    The burger is too big to eat. I don't want to eat it anymore.

    如果你的意思是指:I have no idea how to eat the big burger.
    那么就是它让我无从下口。

    希望有帮助到你。请告诉我它是哪个意思,这样我也能学到一个native way to discribe food. 谢啦。:)

    一般会说,这个汉堡一看就没胃口。如果一定要直译的话可能会说:这个汉堡很倒胃口
