Calories: 1,396
Fat: 52 grams
Sodium: 982 milligrams

Perhaps the most surprising "dish" on our list is a smoothie, usually thought of as a great snack, meal replacement, or light meal. A large Peanut Power Plus Chocolate Smoothie at Smoothie King crams in a super-sized 1,396 calories. Unless this is all you’re planning on eating for the day, skip it.

12) Olive Garden: Tour of Italy

Calories: 1,450
Fat: 74 grams
Sodium: 3,830 milligrams

Maybe you want not one, not two, but three entrées. Olive Garden’s "Tour of Italy" can help you out. You’ll get homemade lasagna, breaded chicken Parmigiana, and creamy fettuccine Alfredo. Along with that, you’ll consume a tasty 1,450 calories and 74 grams of fat, plus 3,830 milligrams of sodium. Sounds… salty.

11) TGI Fridays: New York Cheddar and Bacon Burger

Calories: 1,540
Fat: 100 grams
Sodium: 4,420 milligrams

Maybe TGI Fridays strikes your fancy with their New York Cheddar and Bacon Burger. If you want fries, skip this one: It comes in at 1,540 calories and 100 grams of fat, no fries included.

10) Outback Steakhouse: Baby Back Ribs (with Aussie Fries)

Calories: 1547
Fat: 97 grams
Sodium: 1674 milligrams

Understanding that ribs aren’t the health food we wish they were, these are still pretty heavy on the bad stuff. If you try out Outback’s Baby Back Ribs with Aussie Fries, you’ll be consuming 1,547 calories and 97 grams of fat. That would take you about 5 ½ hours of walking to burn off.

9) Red Lobster: Crab Linguine Alfredo

Calories: 1,580
Fat: 89 grams
Sodium: 3,780 milligrams

The doctor suggests we eat more fish, so we were hoping that this would count, despite the inclusion of Alfredo sauce, which is about the unhealthiest thing you’ll find on a menu. Unfortunately, 1,580 calories on a full plate will put you practically into tomorrow for caloric intake! (Not to mention the Cheddar Bay Biscuits, which contain 150 calories and 8 grams of fat each.)

8) California Pizza Kitchen: Chicken Piccata

Calories: 1,630
Fat: 78 grams
Sodium: 2,140 milligrams

California brings to mind gnarly waves, laid-back dudes, and healthy eats. While there are plenty of healthy options, their pastas and specialties pack quite a calorific wallop. The worst offender is the chicken piccata, with a whopping 1,630 calories.

7) Chili's: Full Rack of Baby Back Ribs

Calories: 1630
Fat: 85 grams
Sodium: 3,290 milligrams

OK, so obviously going to Chili’s for ribs isn’t how we plan to lose weight. Still, a look at the nutrition info here is jaw-dropping. The calories, at 1,630, are not great. The fat content, at 85 grams, not stellar. But it was the huge amount of sodium that really caught our attention.

6) Johnny Rockets: Smokehouse Double

Calories: 1,660
Fat: 110 grams
Sodium: 2,660 milligrams

Burgers are almost never the healthiest choice on a menu, but this one is in another league. Including the bacon, onion rings, cheese, and smokehouse sauce, this monster will set you back 1,660 calories. This is one of those meals that makes us feel like doing jumping jacks while we eat to get a jump on burning off those calories.

5) Applebee's: 4-Cheese Mac & Cheese with Honey Pepper Chicken Tenders

Calories: 1,830
Fat: 92 grams
Sodium: 4,300 milligrams

Before the calorie counts were posted on menus, this would have something we’d be really interested in trying. Mac and cheese with chicken tenders, why not? For 1,830 calories, though? Maybe in another life...

4) IHOP: Country-Fried Steak and Eggs with Sausage Gravy

Calories: 1,850
Fat: 114 grams
Sodium: 4,550 milligrams

IHOP is a favorite for pancakes, waffles, and other early-morning or late-night munchies. They also have this little gem: Country-Fried Steak and Eggs with Sausage Gravy, described as an "8-ounce fried beef steak smothered in country gravy. Served with two eggs, hash browns, and two buttermilk pancakes." Yum. But that plate of yum comes with 1,750 calories, and 107 grams of fat. Hm. Maybe some fruit instead?

3) Uno Chicago Grill: Deep-Dish Macaroni and Three-Cheese

Yelp/ TabithaW

Calories: 1,980
Fat: 134 grams
Sodium: 3110 milligrams

Macaroni and cheese can’t be that bad, right? Mom made it when we were kids! This version is loaded with three cheeses, 1,980 calories, 71 grams of saturated fat, a whopping 134 grams of total fat, and the sodium reaches 3,110 milligrams. Mom would not approve.

2) The Cheesecake Factory: Pasta Carbonara with Chicken

Calories: 2,290
Fat (saturated): 81 grams
Sodium: 1,630 milligrams

The Cheesecake Factory is infamous for its super-unhealthy desserts, but their entrées are nothing to sneeze at, either. Their Pasta Carbonara clocks in at 2,290 calories, 81 grams of saturated fat (they don’t include total fat grams on their website), and 1,630 milligrams of sodium. You might want to skip it and pick something more salad-y.

1) Maggiano’s Little Italy: Veal Porterhouse with Crispy Red Potatoes

Calories: 2,320
Fat: 146 grams
Sodium: 3,880 milligrams

Maggiano’s may have gluten-free pasta, but heir veal porterhouse served with crispy red potatoes, however, contains 2,320 calories, 146 grams of fat, and 3,880 milligrams of sodium, giving it the dubious honor of being the most fattening dish on our list. Those numbers don’t include the ciabatta roll that comes with the meal, either!


40 of the Unhealthiest Restaurant Meals in America

Restaurant meals are known for being calorie and fat bombs, but some are worse than others. Way worse. A typical restaurant entrée has roughly 1,000 calories, according to The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). But some meals are downright artery-clogging, with almost a day's worth of calories, saturated fat, and sodium&mdashby government standards, at least. Here's a list of some of the most unhealthy items you can order.

Filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, chicken chorizo, cheese, crispy potatoes, avocado, peppers, and onions, it's no surprise this burrito made the list. With a serving of sour cream and black beans, this entree will set you back 2,730 calories, 73 grams of saturated fat, and 4,630 milligrams of sodium.

A soft pretzel might feel like a pretty safe choice, but this particular movie theater snack is roughly the nutritional equivalent of six original soft pretzel's from Auntie Anne's. The Bavarian Legend is 9" wide, weighs about 1.5 pounds, and has 1,920 calories, 15 grams of saturated fat, and 7,600 milligrams of sodium.

You could feed your fried chicken craving with this Italian-style dish, or you could eat four pieces of Popeyes fried chicken and four biscuits for about the same amount of calories, according to CSPI. This meal will cost you 1,870 calories, 55 grams of fat, and 3,080 milligrams of sodium.

Tacos can be healthy, but not when the tortillas are coated with a crispy grilled cheese and stuffed with pork, bacon chorizo and cream sauce. Along with the side of rice, beans and a 32 ounce IPA, this meal comes in at 2,040 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 3,820 milligrams of sodium.

Chili's puts their own take on chicken and waffles by topping the creation with bacon, jalapeños, and ancho-chile ranch. Served with fries and a honey-chipotle sauce, this meal comes in at 2,510 calories, 40 grams of fat, and 4,480 milligrams of sodium.

We're not denying that this triple chocolate cookie, complete with peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, marshmallows, and vanilla ice cream sounds good, but it's probably best enjoyed sparingly. And with plenty of other co-diners. This dessert contains 1,580 calories, 31 grams of saturated fat, and 135 grams of sodium.

Of course, there are healthy fast food burger choices, like a single hamburger. But this DoubleSmoke Shack with bacon, cherry pepper, and ShackSauce is one of the most fattening options. The sandwich alone has 930 calories, but paired with a side of fries and a peanut butter shake, this fast food lunch comes in at 2,240 calories, 55 grams of saturated fat, and 3,170 milligrams of sodium.

"This sandwich sounds like a light, fresh option, but this is another example of a calorie bomb at what is perceived as a healthy fast casual restaurant," says Kailey Proctor, RD at the Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange County, California. This sandwich has 900 calories, 13 grams of saturated fat, and 1,510 milligrams of sodium, so it's best to ask for the basil mayo and pesto on the side.

While it does have 10 grams of fiber, this salad has more calories than some fast food burgers. "The main calorie and fat driver in this meal is the fried tostada bowl. Nix the fried tostada bowl to make a heart healthier salad," says Proctor&mdashand ask for dressing on the side. All-in-all, this salad has 1,000 calories, 49 grams of saturated fat, and 1,730 milligrams of sodium.

"Heavily processed meats, like the salami and pepperoni, combined with a pesto vinaigrette brings the calorie, fat, saturated fat, and sodium content up," says Proctor. When picking out a sandwich, look for leaner sources of protein, like chicken breast or turkey, to bring down the calorie and fat content. This sandwich has 1,030 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 3,310 milligrams of sodium.

As if the McFlurry wasn't unhealthy enough, you can also buy it with a packet of M&Ms mixed in. Carbs and sugar content make this horrible for you. "The McFlurry contains precious few micronutrients that will support your health. In fact, your liver is probably going to be working overdrive to process and eliminate all the synthetic additives in the ice cream and candy," says nutritionist Lisa Richards. It contains 630 calories, 14 grams of saturated fat, and 200 milligrams of sodium&mdashoh, and 86 grams of sugar.

It might not sound that bad, but the Chicken & Bacon Ranch Melt is one of the unhealthiest items on Subway's menu. "The ranch dressing, combined with the cheese and bacon, means that the sodium level is sky high. In fact, a 12-inch sub contains almost two-thirds of your daily sodium," says Richards. It contains 540 calories, 10 grams of saturated fat, and 1,100 milligrams of sodium.

"The Triple Whopper won't do your waistline any favors, thanks to the 1,140 calories and 75 grams of fat, and the high sodium levels are bad for your heart health," says Richards. Just as bad, this burger contains 5 grams of trans fat, which can increase your LDL cholesterol, clog up your arteries, and increase the risk of heart disease, she says. It also has 27 grams of saturated fat and 840 milligrams sodium.

This burger is pretty hefty, thanks to cheese, bacon, sauces, patties, and more. And the nutritional facts prove how bad it is for your health. It contains 1,130 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 1,920 milligrams of sodium.

Quesadillas are usually higher in the calorie, fat, and sodium department due to the amount of full-fat cheese in them, but this option from El Pollo Loco also has a cream-based dressing, says Proctor. It has 940 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 1,820 milligrams of sodium.

1,760 milligrams of sodium in a salad? No thanks! This salad has 620 calories and 28 grams of fat, too, which is probably not the "healthy" salad you had in mind.

Whether you're eating it for breakfast or dinner, this is a fat bomb. With 1,020 calories, 53 grams of fat, and 1,450 milligrams of sodium, this sandwich will account for almost half of your daily calories.

These honey, sweet chicken tenders are super bad for you. Just one tender contains 400 milligrams of sodium. Yikes. Not to mention 200 calories and 14 grams of fat. We repeat: in just one tender.

With 1,090 calories, 72 grams of fat, and 1,650 milligrams of sodium, this burger is a calorie bomb and super fatty. (It's a "triple" for a reason!) Even the warning on the site says, "Use both hands!"

"Depending on the accoutrements, this morning meal of eggs, pancakes, toast, and processed meats stacks up to nearly 2,000 calories and an obscene amount of sodium&ndashnearly double the daily recommendation," says cookbook author, registered dietitian, certified athletic trainer Dana Angelo White, MS, RD ATC. The full meal contains 1,900 calories, 46 grams saturated fat, and 4,680 milligrams sodium.

Why is this so bad for you? "Pile on a fried and greasy taco, burrito, and a chalupa, and then finish it off with cinnamon twists (more fried) and a sugary soda," explains White. That'll all set you back 1,180 calories, 52 grams fat, and 2,370 milligrams sodium.

This take on surf n' turf is way, way bad for you. It clocks in at 1,390 calories, 94 grams of fat, and 2,050 milligrams of sodium. Yes, that's right, it has trans fat, which is a huge no-no for your heart.

Mac and cheese on a burger? Yes, it sounds amazing, but it might be bad news for your health. "Doesn't every cheeseburger need a pile of fried mac and cheese? And a side of fries, of course," jokes White. Avoid this doozy, as it comes to 1,330 calories, 83 grams of fat, and 2,560 milligrams of sodium.

Nothing cool about this frosty beverage! "With a whopping 30+ teaspoons of sugar and just about nothing else, this drink is sure to do a number on your blood sugar," says White. a large has 480 calories, 60 milligrams sodium&mdashand 121 grams of sugar. (Yikes!)

Know what you don't need to eat all at once? Bacon, brisket, roast beef, cheddar cheese sauce, and ranch dressing! "It's calorie, saturated fat, and sodium overload! This one sandwich has 760 calories and 2,120 milligrams of sodium (almost 100% of the 2,300 milligrams you should have in one day)," says Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD. It also has 41 grams of fat.

"A buttery croissant meets a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg and comes in at a whopping 770 calories, 21 grams of saturated fat, and 730 milligrams of sodium," says Rizzo. Please don't start your day with this&mdashit won't start the day on a good note.

This app is loaded with refined carbohydrates (almost 200g worth!), which Sam Presicci, MCN, RD, LD, CPT, Lead Registered Dietitian at Snap Kitchen, warns can contribute to digestive issues and leaky gut. "The high carbohydrate count is also bad news for blood sugar control [and] the sodium in this dish is also over 3,000 milligrams, which well exceeds what someone should aim for in one meal," she says. It n total, it consists of 1,950 calories, 56 grams of saturated fat, and 3,840 milligrams of sodium.

"This burrito doesn't actually look as indulgent as some of the other options, but the combination of bacon, sausage, tater tots, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and tortilla means you'll be eating 840 calories, 2,220 milligrams of sodium, and 19 grams saturated fat for breakfast," says Rizzo. The amount of calories and salt alone will wreck your energy.

"This burger has two beef patties, triple the cheese (whatever that means), and four times the regular amount of bacon. In other words, this burger serves up 910 calories, 24 grams of saturated fat, and over 1,670 milligrams of sodium&mdashthat's half the calories and 2/3 the sodium you should have in a day," says Rizzo.

"With 2,500 calories, 125 grams of fat, almost 4,500 milligrams of sodium, and a staggering 283 grams of carbs (plus 105 grams of sugar), this dish may take the cake for most problematic," says Presicci. You'd need to drink almost three 12oz cokes to consume the same amount of sugar, and 283g of carbs in one sitting is sure to send you on the blood sugar roller coaster.

The sandwich alone has 930 calories, but paired with a side of fries and a peanut butter shake, this fast food lunch comes in at 2,240 calories, 55 grams of saturated fat, and 3,170 milligrams of sodium.

"This sandwich sounds like a light, fresh option, but this is another example of a calorie bomb at what is perceived as a healthy fast casual restaurant," says Kailey Proctor, RD at the Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange County, California. This sandwich has 900 calories, 13 grams of saturated fat, and 1,510 milligrams of sodium, so it's best to ask for the basil mayo and pesto on the side.

While it does have 10 grams of fiber, this salad has more calories than some fast food burgers. "The main calorie and fat driver in this meal is the fried tostada bowl. Nix the fried tostada bowl to make a heart healthier salad," says Proctor&mdashand ask for dressing on the side. All-in-all, this salad has 1,000 calories, 49 grams of saturated fat, and 1,730 milligrams of sodium.

"Heavily processed meats, like the salami and pepperoni, combined with a pesto vinaigrette brings the calorie, fat, saturated fat, and sodium content up," says Proctor. When picking out a sandwich, look for leaner sources of protein, like chicken breast or turkey, to bring down the calorie and fat content. This sandwich has 1,030 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 3,310 milligrams of sodium.

As if the McFlurry wasn't unhealthy enough, you can also buy it with a packet of M&Ms mixed in. Carbs and sugar content make this horrible for you. "The McFlurry contains precious few micronutrients that will support your health. In fact, your liver is probably going to be working overdrive to process and eliminate all the synthetic additives in the ice cream and candy," says nutritionist Lisa Richards. It contains 630 calories, 14 grams of saturated fat, and 200 milligrams of sodium&mdashoh, and 86 grams of sugar.

It might not sound that bad, but the Chicken & Bacon Ranch Melt is one of the unhealthiest items on Subway's menu. "The ranch dressing, combined with the cheese and bacon, means that the sodium level is sky high. In fact, a 12-inch sub contains almost two-thirds of your daily sodium," says Richards. It contains 540 calories, 10 grams of saturated fat, and 1,100 milligrams of sodium.

"The Triple Whopper won't do your waistline any favors, thanks to the 1,140 calories and 75 grams of fat, and the high sodium levels are bad for your heart health," says Richards. Just as bad, this burger contains 5 grams of trans fat, which can increase your LDL cholesterol, clog up your arteries, and increase the risk of heart disease, she says. It also has 27 grams of saturated fat and 840 milligrams sodium.

This burger is pretty hefty, thanks to cheese, bacon, sauces, patties, and more. And the nutritional facts prove how bad it is for your health. It contains 1,130 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 1,920 milligrams of sodium.

Quesadillas are usually higher in the calorie, fat, and sodium department due to the amount of full-fat cheese in them, but this option from El Pollo Loco also has a cream-based dressing, says Proctor. It has 940 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 1,820 milligrams of sodium.

1,760 milligrams of sodium in a salad? No thanks! This salad has 620 calories and 28 grams of fat, too, which is probably not the "healthy" salad you had in mind.

Whether you're eating it for breakfast or dinner, this is a fat bomb. With 1,020 calories, 53 grams of fat, and 1,450 milligrams of sodium, this sandwich will account for almost half of your daily calories.

These honey, sweet chicken tenders are super bad for you. Just one tender contains 400 milligrams of sodium. Yikes. Not to mention 200 calories and 14 grams of fat. We repeat: in just one tender.

With 1,090 calories, 72 grams of fat, and 1,650 milligrams of sodium, this burger is a calorie bomb and super fatty. (It's a "triple" for a reason!) Even the warning on the site says, "Use both hands!"

"Depending on the accoutrements, this morning meal of eggs, pancakes, toast, and processed meats stacks up to nearly 2,000 calories and an obscene amount of sodium&ndashnearly double the daily recommendation," says cookbook author, registered dietitian, certified athletic trainer Dana Angelo White, MS, RD ATC. The full meal contains 1,900 calories, 46 grams saturated fat, and 4,680 milligrams sodium.

Why is this so bad for you? "Pile on a fried and greasy taco, burrito, and a chalupa, and then finish it off with cinnamon twists (more fried) and a sugary soda," explains White. That'll all set you back 1,180 calories, 52 grams fat, and 2,370 milligrams sodium.

This take on surf n' turf is way, way bad for you. It clocks in at 1,390 calories, 94 grams of fat, and 2,050 milligrams of sodium. Yes, that's right, it has trans fat, which is a huge no-no for your heart.

Mac and cheese on a burger? Yes, it sounds amazing, but it might be bad news for your health. "Doesn't every cheeseburger need a pile of fried mac and cheese? And a side of fries, of course," jokes White. Avoid this doozy, as it comes to 1,330 calories, 83 grams of fat, and 2,560 milligrams of sodium.

Nothing cool about this frosty beverage! "With a whopping 30+ teaspoons of sugar and just about nothing else, this drink is sure to do a number on your blood sugar," says White. a large has 480 calories, 60 milligrams sodium&mdashand 121 grams of sugar. (Yikes!)

Know what you don't need to eat all at once? Bacon, brisket, roast beef, cheddar cheese sauce, and ranch dressing! "It's calorie, saturated fat, and sodium overload! This one sandwich has 760 calories and 2,120 milligrams of sodium (almost 100% of the 2,300 milligrams you should have in one day)," says Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD. It also has 41 grams of fat.

"A buttery croissant meets a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg and comes in at a whopping 770 calories, 21 grams of saturated fat, and 730 milligrams of sodium," says Rizzo. Please don't start your day with this&mdashit won't start the day on a good note.

This app is loaded with refined carbohydrates (almost 200g worth!), which Sam Presicci, MCN, RD, LD, CPT, Lead Registered Dietitian at Snap Kitchen, warns can contribute to digestive issues and leaky gut. "The high carbohydrate count is also bad news for blood sugar control [and] the sodium in this dish is also over 3,000 milligrams, which well exceeds what someone should aim for in one meal," she says. It n total, it consists of 1,950 calories, 56 grams of saturated fat, and 3,840 milligrams of sodium.

"This burrito doesn't actually look as indulgent as some of the other options, but the combination of bacon, sausage, tater tots, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and tortilla means you'll be eating 840 calories, 2,220 milligrams of sodium, and 19 grams saturated fat for breakfast," says Rizzo. The amount of calories and salt alone will wreck your energy.

"This burger has two beef patties, triple the cheese (whatever that means), and four times the regular amount of bacon. In other words, this burger serves up 910 calories, 24 grams of saturated fat, and over 1,670 milligrams of sodium&mdashthat's half the calories and 2/3 the sodium you should have in a day," says Rizzo.

"With 2,500 calories, 125 grams of fat, almost 4,500 milligrams of sodium, and a staggering 283 grams of carbs (plus 105 grams of sugar), this dish may take the cake for most problematic," says Presicci. You'd need to drink almost three 12oz cokes to consume the same amount of sugar, and 283g of carbs in one sitting is sure to send you on the blood sugar roller coaster.


40 of the Unhealthiest Restaurant Meals in America

Restaurant meals are known for being calorie and fat bombs, but some are worse than others. Way worse. A typical restaurant entrée has roughly 1,000 calories, according to The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). But some meals are downright artery-clogging, with almost a day's worth of calories, saturated fat, and sodium&mdashby government standards, at least. Here's a list of some of the most unhealthy items you can order.

Filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, chicken chorizo, cheese, crispy potatoes, avocado, peppers, and onions, it's no surprise this burrito made the list. With a serving of sour cream and black beans, this entree will set you back 2,730 calories, 73 grams of saturated fat, and 4,630 milligrams of sodium.

A soft pretzel might feel like a pretty safe choice, but this particular movie theater snack is roughly the nutritional equivalent of six original soft pretzel's from Auntie Anne's. The Bavarian Legend is 9" wide, weighs about 1.5 pounds, and has 1,920 calories, 15 grams of saturated fat, and 7,600 milligrams of sodium.

You could feed your fried chicken craving with this Italian-style dish, or you could eat four pieces of Popeyes fried chicken and four biscuits for about the same amount of calories, according to CSPI. This meal will cost you 1,870 calories, 55 grams of fat, and 3,080 milligrams of sodium.

Tacos can be healthy, but not when the tortillas are coated with a crispy grilled cheese and stuffed with pork, bacon chorizo and cream sauce. Along with the side of rice, beans and a 32 ounce IPA, this meal comes in at 2,040 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 3,820 milligrams of sodium.

Chili's puts their own take on chicken and waffles by topping the creation with bacon, jalapeños, and ancho-chile ranch. Served with fries and a honey-chipotle sauce, this meal comes in at 2,510 calories, 40 grams of fat, and 4,480 milligrams of sodium.

We're not denying that this triple chocolate cookie, complete with peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, marshmallows, and vanilla ice cream sounds good, but it's probably best enjoyed sparingly. And with plenty of other co-diners. This dessert contains 1,580 calories, 31 grams of saturated fat, and 135 grams of sodium.

Of course, there are healthy fast food burger choices, like a single hamburger. But this DoubleSmoke Shack with bacon, cherry pepper, and ShackSauce is one of the most fattening options. The sandwich alone has 930 calories, but paired with a side of fries and a peanut butter shake, this fast food lunch comes in at 2,240 calories, 55 grams of saturated fat, and 3,170 milligrams of sodium.

"This sandwich sounds like a light, fresh option, but this is another example of a calorie bomb at what is perceived as a healthy fast casual restaurant," says Kailey Proctor, RD at the Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange County, California. This sandwich has 900 calories, 13 grams of saturated fat, and 1,510 milligrams of sodium, so it's best to ask for the basil mayo and pesto on the side.

While it does have 10 grams of fiber, this salad has more calories than some fast food burgers. "The main calorie and fat driver in this meal is the fried tostada bowl. Nix the fried tostada bowl to make a heart healthier salad," says Proctor&mdashand ask for dressing on the side. All-in-all, this salad has 1,000 calories, 49 grams of saturated fat, and 1,730 milligrams of sodium.

"Heavily processed meats, like the salami and pepperoni, combined with a pesto vinaigrette brings the calorie, fat, saturated fat, and sodium content up," says Proctor. When picking out a sandwich, look for leaner sources of protein, like chicken breast or turkey, to bring down the calorie and fat content. This sandwich has 1,030 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 3,310 milligrams of sodium.

As if the McFlurry wasn't unhealthy enough, you can also buy it with a packet of M&Ms mixed in. Carbs and sugar content make this horrible for you. "The McFlurry contains precious few micronutrients that will support your health. In fact, your liver is probably going to be working overdrive to process and eliminate all the synthetic additives in the ice cream and candy," says nutritionist Lisa Richards. It contains 630 calories, 14 grams of saturated fat, and 200 milligrams of sodium&mdashoh, and 86 grams of sugar.

It might not sound that bad, but the Chicken & Bacon Ranch Melt is one of the unhealthiest items on Subway's menu. "The ranch dressing, combined with the cheese and bacon, means that the sodium level is sky high. In fact, a 12-inch sub contains almost two-thirds of your daily sodium," says Richards. It contains 540 calories, 10 grams of saturated fat, and 1,100 milligrams of sodium.

"The Triple Whopper won't do your waistline any favors, thanks to the 1,140 calories and 75 grams of fat, and the high sodium levels are bad for your heart health," says Richards. Just as bad, this burger contains 5 grams of trans fat, which can increase your LDL cholesterol, clog up your arteries, and increase the risk of heart disease, she says. It also has 27 grams of saturated fat and 840 milligrams sodium.

This burger is pretty hefty, thanks to cheese, bacon, sauces, patties, and more. And the nutritional facts prove how bad it is for your health. It contains 1,130 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 1,920 milligrams of sodium.

Quesadillas are usually higher in the calorie, fat, and sodium department due to the amount of full-fat cheese in them, but this option from El Pollo Loco also has a cream-based dressing, says Proctor. It has 940 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 1,820 milligrams of sodium.

1,760 milligrams of sodium in a salad? No thanks! This salad has 620 calories and 28 grams of fat, too, which is probably not the "healthy" salad you had in mind.

Whether you're eating it for breakfast or dinner, this is a fat bomb. With 1,020 calories, 53 grams of fat, and 1,450 milligrams of sodium, this sandwich will account for almost half of your daily calories.

These honey, sweet chicken tenders are super bad for you. Just one tender contains 400 milligrams of sodium. Yikes. Not to mention 200 calories and 14 grams of fat. We repeat: in just one tender.

With 1,090 calories, 72 grams of fat, and 1,650 milligrams of sodium, this burger is a calorie bomb and super fatty. (It's a "triple" for a reason!) Even the warning on the site says, "Use both hands!"

"Depending on the accoutrements, this morning meal of eggs, pancakes, toast, and processed meats stacks up to nearly 2,000 calories and an obscene amount of sodium&ndashnearly double the daily recommendation," says cookbook author, registered dietitian, certified athletic trainer Dana Angelo White, MS, RD ATC. The full meal contains 1,900 calories, 46 grams saturated fat, and 4,680 milligrams sodium.

Why is this so bad for you? "Pile on a fried and greasy taco, burrito, and a chalupa, and then finish it off with cinnamon twists (more fried) and a sugary soda," explains White. That'll all set you back 1,180 calories, 52 grams fat, and 2,370 milligrams sodium.

This take on surf n' turf is way, way bad for you. It clocks in at 1,390 calories, 94 grams of fat, and 2,050 milligrams of sodium. Yes, that's right, it has trans fat, which is a huge no-no for your heart.

Mac and cheese on a burger? Yes, it sounds amazing, but it might be bad news for your health. "Doesn't every cheeseburger need a pile of fried mac and cheese? And a side of fries, of course," jokes White. Avoid this doozy, as it comes to 1,330 calories, 83 grams of fat, and 2,560 milligrams of sodium.

Nothing cool about this frosty beverage! "With a whopping 30+ teaspoons of sugar and just about nothing else, this drink is sure to do a number on your blood sugar," says White. a large has 480 calories, 60 milligrams sodium&mdashand 121 grams of sugar. (Yikes!)

Know what you don't need to eat all at once? Bacon, brisket, roast beef, cheddar cheese sauce, and ranch dressing! "It's calorie, saturated fat, and sodium overload! This one sandwich has 760 calories and 2,120 milligrams of sodium (almost 100% of the 2,300 milligrams you should have in one day)," says Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD. It also has 41 grams of fat.

"A buttery croissant meets a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg and comes in at a whopping 770 calories, 21 grams of saturated fat, and 730 milligrams of sodium," says Rizzo. Please don't start your day with this&mdashit won't start the day on a good note.

This app is loaded with refined carbohydrates (almost 200g worth!), which Sam Presicci, MCN, RD, LD, CPT, Lead Registered Dietitian at Snap Kitchen, warns can contribute to digestive issues and leaky gut. "The high carbohydrate count is also bad news for blood sugar control [and] the sodium in this dish is also over 3,000 milligrams, which well exceeds what someone should aim for in one meal," she says. It n total, it consists of 1,950 calories, 56 grams of saturated fat, and 3,840 milligrams of sodium.

"This burrito doesn't actually look as indulgent as some of the other options, but the combination of bacon, sausage, tater tots, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and tortilla means you'll be eating 840 calories, 2,220 milligrams of sodium, and 19 grams saturated fat for breakfast," says Rizzo. The amount of calories and salt alone will wreck your energy.

"This burger has two beef patties, triple the cheese (whatever that means), and four times the regular amount of bacon. In other words, this burger serves up 910 calories, 24 grams of saturated fat, and over 1,670 milligrams of sodium&mdashthat's half the calories and 2/3 the sodium you should have in a day," says Rizzo.

"With 2,500 calories, 125 grams of fat, almost 4,500 milligrams of sodium, and a staggering 283 grams of carbs (plus 105 grams of sugar), this dish may take the cake for most problematic," says Presicci. You'd need to drink almost three 12oz cokes to consume the same amount of sugar, and 283g of carbs in one sitting is sure to send you on the blood sugar roller coaster.


40 of the Unhealthiest Restaurant Meals in America

Restaurant meals are known for being calorie and fat bombs, but some are worse than others. Way worse. A typical restaurant entrée has roughly 1,000 calories, according to The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). But some meals are downright artery-clogging, with almost a day's worth of calories, saturated fat, and sodium&mdashby government standards, at least. Here's a list of some of the most unhealthy items you can order.

Filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, chicken chorizo, cheese, crispy potatoes, avocado, peppers, and onions, it's no surprise this burrito made the list. With a serving of sour cream and black beans, this entree will set you back 2,730 calories, 73 grams of saturated fat, and 4,630 milligrams of sodium.

A soft pretzel might feel like a pretty safe choice, but this particular movie theater snack is roughly the nutritional equivalent of six original soft pretzel's from Auntie Anne's. The Bavarian Legend is 9" wide, weighs about 1.5 pounds, and has 1,920 calories, 15 grams of saturated fat, and 7,600 milligrams of sodium.

You could feed your fried chicken craving with this Italian-style dish, or you could eat four pieces of Popeyes fried chicken and four biscuits for about the same amount of calories, according to CSPI. This meal will cost you 1,870 calories, 55 grams of fat, and 3,080 milligrams of sodium.

Tacos can be healthy, but not when the tortillas are coated with a crispy grilled cheese and stuffed with pork, bacon chorizo and cream sauce. Along with the side of rice, beans and a 32 ounce IPA, this meal comes in at 2,040 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 3,820 milligrams of sodium.

Chili's puts their own take on chicken and waffles by topping the creation with bacon, jalapeños, and ancho-chile ranch. Served with fries and a honey-chipotle sauce, this meal comes in at 2,510 calories, 40 grams of fat, and 4,480 milligrams of sodium.

And with plenty of other co-diners. This dessert contains 1,580 calories, 31 grams of saturated fat, and 135 grams of sodium.

Of course, there are healthy fast food burger choices, like a single hamburger. But this DoubleSmoke Shack with bacon, cherry pepper, and ShackSauce is one of the most fattening options. The sandwich alone has 930 calories, but paired with a side of fries and a peanut butter shake, this fast food lunch comes in at 2,240 calories, 55 grams of saturated fat, and 3,170 milligrams of sodium.

"This sandwich sounds like a light, fresh option, but this is another example of a calorie bomb at what is perceived as a healthy fast casual restaurant," says Kailey Proctor, RD at the Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange County, California. This sandwich has 900 calories, 13 grams of saturated fat, and 1,510 milligrams of sodium, so it's best to ask for the basil mayo and pesto on the side.

While it does have 10 grams of fiber, this salad has more calories than some fast food burgers. "The main calorie and fat driver in this meal is the fried tostada bowl. Nix the fried tostada bowl to make a heart healthier salad," says Proctor&mdashand ask for dressing on the side. All-in-all, this salad has 1,000 calories, 49 grams of saturated fat, and 1,730 milligrams of sodium.

"Heavily processed meats, like the salami and pepperoni, combined with a pesto vinaigrette brings the calorie, fat, saturated fat, and sodium content up," says Proctor. When picking out a sandwich, look for leaner sources of protein, like chicken breast or turkey, to bring down the calorie and fat content. This sandwich has 1,030 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 3,310 milligrams of sodium.

As if the McFlurry wasn't unhealthy enough, you can also buy it with a packet of M&Ms mixed in. Carbs and sugar content make this horrible for you. "The McFlurry contains precious few micronutrients that will support your health. In fact, your liver is probably going to be working overdrive to process and eliminate all the synthetic additives in the ice cream and candy," says nutritionist Lisa Richards. It contains 630 calories, 14 grams of saturated fat, and 200 milligrams of sodium&mdashoh, and 86 grams of sugar.

It might not sound that bad, but the Chicken & Bacon Ranch Melt is one of the unhealthiest items on Subway's menu. "The ranch dressing, combined with the cheese and bacon, means that the sodium level is sky high. In fact, a 12-inch sub contains almost two-thirds of your daily sodium," says Richards. It contains 540 calories, 10 grams of saturated fat, and 1,100 milligrams of sodium.

"The Triple Whopper won't do your waistline any favors, thanks to the 1,140 calories and 75 grams of fat, and the high sodium levels are bad for your heart health," says Richards. Just as bad, this burger contains 5 grams of trans fat, which can increase your LDL cholesterol, clog up your arteries, and increase the risk of heart disease, she says. It also has 27 grams of saturated fat and 840 milligrams sodium.

This burger is pretty hefty, thanks to cheese, bacon, sauces, patties, and more. And the nutritional facts prove how bad it is for your health. It contains 1,130 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 1,920 milligrams of sodium.

Quesadillas are usually higher in the calorie, fat, and sodium department due to the amount of full-fat cheese in them, but this option from El Pollo Loco also has a cream-based dressing, says Proctor. It has 940 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, and 1,820 milligrams of sodium.

1,760 milligrams of sodium in a salad? No thanks! This salad has 620 calories and 28 grams of fat, too, which is probably not the "healthy" salad you had in mind.

Whether you're eating it for breakfast or dinner, this is a fat bomb. With 1,020 calories, 53 grams of fat, and 1,450 milligrams of sodium, this sandwich will account for almost half of your daily calories.

These honey, sweet chicken tenders are super bad for you. Just one tender contains 400 milligrams of sodium. Yikes. Not to mention 200 calories and 14 grams of fat. We repeat: in just one tender.

With 1,090 calories, 72 grams of fat, and 1,650 milligrams of sodium, this burger is a calorie bomb and super fatty. (It's a "triple" for a reason!) Even the warning on the site says, "Use both hands!"

"Depending on the accoutrements, this morning meal of eggs, pancakes, toast, and processed meats stacks up to nearly 2,000 calories and an obscene amount of sodium&ndashnearly double the daily recommendation," says cookbook author, registered dietitian, certified athletic trainer Dana Angelo White, MS, RD ATC. The full meal contains 1,900 calories, 46 grams saturated fat, and 4,680 milligrams sodium.

Why is this so bad for you? "Pile on a fried and greasy taco, burrito, and a chalupa, and then finish it off with cinnamon twists (more fried) and a sugary soda," explains White. That'll all set you back 1,180 calories, 52 grams fat, and 2,370 milligrams sodium.

This take on surf n' turf is way, way bad for you. It clocks in at 1,390 calories, 94 grams of fat, and 2,050 milligrams of sodium. Yes, that's right, it has trans fat, which is a huge no-no for your heart.

Mac and cheese on a burger? Yes, it sounds amazing, but it might be bad news for your health. "Doesn't every cheeseburger need a pile of fried mac and cheese? And a side of fries, of course," jokes White. Avoid this doozy, as it comes to 1,330 calories, 83 grams of fat, and 2,560 milligrams of sodium.

Nothing cool about this frosty beverage! "With a whopping 30+ teaspoons of sugar and just about nothing else, this drink is sure to do a number on your blood sugar," says White. a large has 480 calories, 60 milligrams sodium&mdashand 121 grams of sugar. (Yikes!)

Know what you don't need to eat all at once? Bacon, brisket, roast beef, cheddar cheese sauce, and ranch dressing! "It's calorie, saturated fat, and sodium overload! This one sandwich has 760 calories and 2,120 milligrams of sodium (almost 100% of the 2,300 milligrams you should have in one day)," says Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD. It also has 41 grams of fat.

"A buttery croissant meets a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg and comes in at a whopping 770 calories, 21 grams of saturated fat, and 730 milligrams of sodium," says Rizzo. Please don't start your day with this&mdashit won't start the day on a good note.

This app is loaded with refined carbohydrates (almost 200g worth!), which Sam Presicci, MCN, RD, LD, CPT, Lead Registered Dietitian at Snap Kitchen, warns can contribute to digestive issues and leaky gut. "The high carbohydrate count is also bad news for blood sugar control [and] the sodium in this dish is also over 3,000 milligrams, which well exceeds what someone should aim for in one meal," she says. It n total, it consists of 1,950 calories, 56 grams of saturated fat, and 3,840 milligrams of sodium.

"This burrito doesn't actually look as indulgent as some of the other options, but the combination of bacon, sausage, tater tots, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and tortilla means you'll be eating 840 calories, 2,220 milligrams of sodium, and 19 grams saturated fat for breakfast," says Rizzo. The amount of calories and salt alone will wreck your energy.

"This burger has two beef patties, triple the cheese (whatever that means), and four times the regular amount of bacon. In other words, this burger serves up 910 calories, 24 grams of saturated fat, and over 1,670 milligrams of sodium&mdashthat's half the calories and 2/3 the sodium you should have in a day," says Rizzo.

"With 2,500 calories, 125 grams of fat, almost 4,500 milligrams of sodium, and a staggering 283 grams of carbs (plus 105 grams of sugar), this dish may take the cake for most problematic," says Presicci. You'd need to drink almost three 12oz cokes to consume the same amount of sugar, and 283g of carbs in one sitting is sure to send you on the blood sugar roller coaster.


40 of the Unhealthiest Restaurant Meals in America

Restaurant meals are known for being calorie and fat bombs, but some are worse than others. Way worse. A typical restaurant entrée has roughly 1,000 calories, according to The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). But some meals are downright artery-clogging, with almost a day's worth of calories, saturated fat, and sodium&mdashby government standards, at least. Here's a list of some of the most unhealthy items you can order.

Filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, chicken chorizo, cheese, crispy potatoes, avocado, peppers, and onions, it's no surprise this burrito made the list. With a serving of sour cream and black beans, this entree will set you back 2,730 calories, 73 grams of saturated fat, and 4,630 milligrams of sodium.

A soft pretzel might feel like a pretty safe choice, but this particular movie theater snack is roughly the nutritional equivalent of six original soft pretzel's from Auntie Anne's. The Bavarian Legend is 9" wide, weighs about 1.5 pounds, and has 1,920 calories, 15 grams of saturated fat, and 7,600 milligrams of sodium.

You could feed your fried chicken craving with this Italian-style dish, or you could eat four pieces of Popeyes fried chicken and four biscuits for about the same amount of calories, according to CSPI. This meal will cost you 1,870 calories, 55 grams of fat, and 3,080 milligrams of sodium.

Tacos can be healthy, but not when the tortillas are coated with a crispy grilled cheese and stuffed with pork, bacon chorizo and cream sauce. Along with the side of rice, beans and a 32 ounce IPA, this meal comes in at 2,040 calories, 27 grams of saturated fat, and 3,820 milligrams of sodium.

Chili's puts their own take on chicken and waffles by topping the creation with bacon, jalapeños, and ancho-chile ranch. Served with fries and a honey-chipotle sauce, this meal comes in at 2,510 calories, 40 grams of fat, and 4,480 milligrams of sodium.
