The Worst American Fast Food


<a href="" source="Men's Health" author="">The 20 Worst Foods in America 2009</a> catalogs exactly that. The listings are nearly unbelievable, especially the number one entry. It is the <i>Baskin Robbins Large Chocolate Oreo Shake</i>, which boasts the following characteristics: <ul> 2,600 calories 135 g fat (59 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fats) 263 g sugars 1,700 mg sodium 73 ingredients (or more) </ul> That's a whole day's worth of calories and three days' worth of fat in a container that can be slurped empty in less than ten minutes. Not that 263g is equal to over half a pound. That's more than half a pound of sugar in your shake. There are other standouts, but nothing that approaches the shake for sheer awfulness. The pizza, <i>Uno Chicago Grill Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza</i> also has a day's worth of calories: <ul> 2,310 calories 162 g fat 123 g carbohydrates 4,470 mg sodium </ul> Check out the sodium; Almost two days worth in one pizza! The worst burger, <i>Chili’s Smokehouse Bacon Triple-The-Cheese Big Mouth Burger with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing</i>, has almost the exact same characteristics: <ul> 2,040 calories 150 g fat (53 g saturated) 110 g protein 4,900 mg sodium </ul> A rule-of-thumb one can glean from the "foods" above is to avoid any entrée that has more than two or three words in its name.
