The Top 20
Worst Foods in
McDonald's (5 pieces) with cream ranch sauce. 830
Calories, 55 grams fat
(4.5 trans fat), 48 carbs. Add a large fries
and regular soda and this
seemingly innocuous chicken meal tops out
Chocolate Moo'd Power Smoothie (30
oz). 900 calories, 10 g fat, 183 carbs, 166 g sugar... Jamba
calls it a smoothie, MSNBC calls it a milk shake. The
contains as much sugar as 8 pints of Ben & Jerry's butter pecan
18: Worst supermarket meal - Pepperidge Farm Roasted Chicken
(whole pie). 1,020 calories, 64 g fat, 86 g carbs. Label may say
pie serves two, but, who ever divided a small pot pie in half?
you crack the crust, there will be no stopping.
'healthy' burger - Ruby Tuesday Bella Turkey Burger. 1,145
calories, 71 g
fat, 56 g carbs.
16: Worst Mexican entree - Chipotle Mexican Grill
1,179 calories, 47 g fat, 125 g carbs, 2,656 mg
15: Worst kids' meal - Macaroni Grill Double Macaroni 'n'
1,210 calories, 62 g fat, 3,450 mg sodium. It's like feeding your
1 1/2 boxes of Kraft mac 'n' cheese.
14: Worst sandwich - Quiznos
Classic Italian (large). 1,528 calories,
fat, 4,604 mg sodium, 110 g carbs. A large homemade sandwich
likely provided about 500 calories.
13: Worst salad - On the Border
Grande Taco Salad with Taco Beef.
1,450 calories, 102 g fat, 78 g carbs,
2,410 mg sodium. This isn't an
anomaly: Five different On the Border salads
on the menu contain more
than 1, 100 calories each.
12: Worst burger
- Carl's Jr. (Hardee's on East Coast) Double Six
Dollar Burger. 1,520
calories! , 111g fat. Carl's Jr. brags it's home
to this enormous sandwich,
but the restaurant chain also provides
convenient nutrition info on its Web
site -- so ignorance is no
excuse for eating it.
11: Worst steak -
Lonestar 20 oz T-bone. 1,540 calories, 124g fat.
Add a baked potato and
Lonestar's Signature Lettuce Wedge, and this
is a 2,700 calorie
10: Worst breakfast - Bob Evans Caramel Banana Pecan Cream
and Stuffed hotcakes. 1,540 calories, 77 g fat (9 g trans fat), 198
carbs, 109 g sugar. Five Egg McMuffins yield the same caloric cost
this stack of sugar-stuffed flapjacks, which is truly a
breakfast, weighing in at a hefty pound and a half.
dessert - Chili's Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie with Vanilla
Ice Cream. 1,600
calories, 78 g fat, 215 g carbs. Would you eat a Big
Mac for dessert? How
about three? That's the calorie equivalent of
this decadent dish. Clearly,
Chili's customers get their money's worth.
8: Worst Chinese entree - P.
F. Chang's Pork Lo Mein. 1,820 calories,
127 g fat,! 95 g carbs. The fat
content in this dish alone provides
more than 1,100 calories. And you'd have
to eat almost five servings
of pasta to match the number of carbs it
contains. Now, do you really
need five servings of pasta?
chicken entree - Chili's Honey Chipotle Crispers with
Chipotle Sauce. 2,040
calories, 99 g fat, 240 g carbs. "Crispers"
refers to an extra thick layer
of bread crumbs that soak up oil and
adds unnecessary calories and carbs to
these glorified chicken strips.
6: Worst fish entree - On the Border Dos
XX Fish Tacos with Rice and
Beans. 2,100 calories, 130 g fat, 169 g carbs,
4,700 mg sodium.
Perhaps the most misleadingly named dish in
5: Worst pizza - Uno
Chicago Grill Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza.
2,310 calories, 162 g fat, 123
g carbs, 4,470 mg sodium... Downing
this "personal" pizza is equivalent to
eating 18 slices of Domino's
Crunchy Thin Crust cheese pizza.
Worst pasta - Macaroni Grill Spaghetti and Meatballs with Meat
calories, 128 g fat, 207 g carbs, 5,290 mg sodium. This
meal satisfied your

fat, 194 g carbs, 6,360 mg sodium.
1: The worst food in
with Ranch Dressing. 2,900
calories, 182 g fat,
240 g carbs. Even if
you split these "starters" with three friends, you'll
have downed a
dinner's worth of calories before you entree
