We know which foods are good for us and which foods make us feel sick. Here is a list of the worst foods in America. Be warned!
The Worst Burger
We all know that burgers aren’t the healthiest option when ordering something to eat at a restaurant. Burgers contain trans fat, have tons of calories, and a load of toppings isn’t helping the situation either. But if you’re craving a burger, stay away from Chili’s Smokehouse Bacon Triple Cheese Big Mouth Burger with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing. The burger alone has 1,901 calories, which is almost an entire days worth of calories and 138 grams of fat, almost 2.5 days worth of fat. Next time you’re planning on making a burger, try swapping beef for lean turkey and adding healthier toppings like veggies and onions.
The Worst Drink
It can be hard to stick to drinking water when you’re craving a sugary drink. A cup of soda won’t kill you, but soda has loads of sugar which is not good for you. However, the worst drink in America is the Baskin-Robbins Large Chocolate Oreo Shake. This monster of a shake contains 2,600 calories and 135 grams of fat.
The Worst Pizza
Pizza is so delicious, how can there be a bad one? Sure enough, there is, but not by it’s taste. This so-called “worst pizza” is from Uno Chicago Grill, and it’s the restaurants deep dish individual pizza. The pizza has a whopping 2,310 calories and 165 grams of fat. That’s nearly three days worth of saturated fat. Since it’s a deep-dish pizza, there is tons of extra dough and more cheese, sauce, and toppings than you’d get on a regular pizza. You should probably skip the deep dish next time you’re at Uno’s no matter how tempting it sounds.
The Worst Salad
Is it strange to say there is a bad salad? The award for worst salad goes to On the Border’s Grande Taco Salad with taco beef and chipotle honey mustard. The salad contains 1,700 calories and 124 grams of fat. On The Border’s salad is worse than eating a Burger King Whopper, and we already know how terrible that burger is for you.
The Worst Seafood
When you think of seafood, you might think of salmon filet or lemon-garlic shrimp, which are all pretty healthy. You can’t go wrong when ordering seafood unless it’s fried or from Romanos. The restaurant carries a Macaroni Grill Parmesan Crusted Sole that sounds amazing but won’t help your waistline. The meal has 2,190 calories and 141 grams of fat.
The Worst Sandwich
Everyone loves a good sandwich whether you like the good old ham and cheese or like to pack it on with a ton of meat and toppings. However, one sandwich is just very bad for you. It is the Quizno’s large tuna melt sandwich. It’s odd that tuna would be considered one of the worst Quizno’s sandwich options, but when they pile on the mayonnaise, the sandwich has 1,760 calories and contains 133 grams of fat. The sandwich used to have 2,000 calories, but we guess they lightened up on the mayo.
The Worst Dessert
It’s hard to pass up on dessert when you’re at a restaurant, and everything on the dessert menu looks delicious. From tiramisu to chocolate ice cream, how can anyone say no? Maybe once in awhile it’s okay to have a scoop or two, but beware of this particular dessert option: Sonic’s Pineapple Upside Down Master Blast. This bad boy has a whopping 2,020 calories and 95 grams of fat. The drink is supposedly real vanilla ice cream, mixed with pineapple, salted caramel, and pie crust pieces. It may sound tempting, but there are way better options.
