20: Worst fast-food chicken meal
Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips from McDonald's (5 pieces) with creamy ranch sauce
830 calories
55 grams (g) fat (4.5 g trans fat)

19: Worst drink
Jamba Juice Chocolate Moo'd Power Smoothie (30 fl oz)
900 calories 10 g fat
183 g carbs (166 g sugar)

18: Worst supermarket meal
Pepperidge Farm Roasted Chicken Pot Pie (whole pie)
1,020 calories 64 g fat
86 g carbs

17: Worst 'healthy' burger
Ruby Tuesday Bella Turkey Burger
1,145 calories 71 g fat
56 g carbs
We chose this burger for more than its calorie payload: Its name implies that it's healthy.

16: Worst Mexican entree
Chipotle Mexican Grill Chicken Burrito
1,179 calories 47 g fat
125 g carbs
2,656 milligrams (mg) sodium

15: Worst kids' meal
Macaroni Grill Double Macaroni 'n' Cheese
1,210 calories 62 g fat
3,450 mg sodium
It's like feeding your kid 1 1/2 boxes of Kraft mac 'n' cheese.

14: Worst sandwich
Quiznos Classic Italian (large)
1,528 calories 92 g fat
4,604 mg sodium 110 g carbs

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. Double Six Dollar Burger
1,520 calories
111 g fat
Carl's Jr. brags that 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
124 g fat
Add a baked potato and Lonestar's Signature Lettuce Wedge, and this is a 2,700-calorie blowout.

10: Worst breakfast
Bob Evans Caramel Banana Pecan Cream Stacked and Stuffed Hotcakes
1,540 calories
77 g fat (9 g trans fat)
198 g carbs (109 g sugar)
Five Egg McMuffins yield the same caloric cost as this stack of sugar-stuffed flapjacks, which is truly a heavy breakfast, weighing in at a hefty pound and a half.

9: Worst 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 carbohydrates it contains. Now, do you really need five servings of pasta?

7: Worst 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 soaks 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 4,750 mg sodium
Perhaps the most misleadingly named dish in America: A dozen crunchy tacos from Taco Bell will saddle you with fewer calories.

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.

4: Worst pasta
Macaroni Grill Spaghetti and Meatballs with Meat Sauce
2,430 calories
128 g fat
207 g carbs
5,290 mg sodium
This meal satisfies your calorie requirements for an entire day.

3: Worst nachos
On the Border Stacked Border Nachos
2,740 calories
166 g fat
191 g carbs
5,280 mg sodium

2: Worst starter
Chili's Awesome Blossom
2,710 calories
203 g fat
194 g carbs
6,360 mg sodium

1: The worst food in America
Outback Steakhouse Aussie Cheese Fries 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 your entrée arrives.

mmmmmmmm don't tell me these things, I love a couple of those things. Especially those chipoltle chicken crispers.

11-30-2007, 10:51 PM
Didn't know Chipotle's chicke burro was so bad...wow.

11-30-2007, 11:24 PM
Thanks for the info. Now WTF am I supposed to eat when I go out?:D

I might be wrong but I think #2 is the same thing as the Blooming Onion

You're correct. The Awesome Blossom is the blooming onion.

Wow Thank God I havent heard of half of those chains around here, and the other half we just dont have around here.

SAme. LOL I'm on a diet for Wrestling and I laughed when I realized any one of these food would, according to my diet, have enough fat for me for about 4 days and enough calories for 2. lol

12-02-2007, 05:03 PM
I've never eaten any of these things, but fast food is terrible no matter what it is, unless it is a grilled chick salad w/ light dressing, or apple dapples form McDonalds lol.

12-02-2007, 07:55 PM
Holy fuckin shit, and I use to stay away from foods under 10 g of fat lol.. No more q

12-02-2007, 07:56 PM
Holy shit and I use to stay away from foods under 10 g of fat.. no more Quiznos for me lol.

Stickin' to Hibachi food from now on, and salads.

Anyone who doesn't think that a deep-fried onion w/ ranch dressing dip or cheese fries are bad for them deserves whatever health problems they get IMO.

Just sucks that the US tax payers have to pay for it once all the fatties need medical care.

Damn fatties, lol.

12-03-2007, 03:58 PM
Damn it! I just split those fries at Outback on Saturday night with my girl and two friends!

I better tell her to stop eating those so she doesn't turn into a fatso! haha

I will say one thing though....it's always the stuff that tastes the best that is the worst for you.
