20 worst foods in America


I've only had a couple of these, but gross! There is NO need for foods to have this many calories.

The Top 20 Worst Foods in America

20: Worst Fast-Food Chicken Meal - Chicken Selects Premium Breast
Strips from 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
at 1,710 calories.

19: Worst drink - Jamba Juice Chocolate Moo'd Power Smoothie (30 fl
oz). 900 calories, 10 g fat, 183 carbs, 166 g sugar. Jamba Juice
calls it a smoothie, MSNBC calls it a milk shake. The beverage
contains as much sugar as 8 pints of Ben & Jerry's butter pecan ice
cream.

18: Worst supermarket meal - Pepperidge Farm Roasted Chicken Pot Pie
(whole pie). 1,020 calories, 64 g fat, 86 g carbs. Label may say this
pie serves two, but, who ever divided a small pot pie in half? Once
you crack the crust, there will be no stopping.

17: Worst 'healthy' burger - Ruby Tuesday Bella Turkey Burger. 1,145
calories, 71 g fat, 56 g carbs.

16: Worst Mexican entree - Chipotle Mexican Grill Chicken Burrito.
1,179 calories, 47 g fat, 125 g carbs, 2,656 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. A large homemade sandwich
would more 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 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 carbs 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 break 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 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 satisfied 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 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 you entree arrives

The new burgers at chilis are really bad too---the big mouth variety. If you have one of the burgers with the side of fries it comes with, that is up to 152 grams of fat. You can have a big mac and a medium order of fries for 49 grams of fat, just for comparison. While that is still almost all of the allowed 60 grams (if you are on the standard 2000 calorie diet), the amount in the chilis burger is appalling. There should be some sort of standard for restaurants. I know we should pay attention to what we eat, but even a certain salad from ruby tuesday has 72 grams of fat. Where is the line?

Lisa, I'm not sure but I think it's the worst of the particular group. Like the desserts, that Chili's pie is worst than other major chain desserts. I'm not 100% on that though.

I used to take those frozen Stouffer's macaroni and cheese things to work with me until I read the back one day and realized a single small tray is something like 800 calories. They're damn tasty, but I used to eat them as snacks, not a whole meal. :oops:

I liked the Uno pizza :DROOL: But I didn't think it was as great as they make it out to be.
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 6 years 31 weeks

I don't think I've ever had any of those. Most of those meals are more calories than one needs in an entire day.
Schaianne Schaianne 6 years 31 weeks
Glad I don't eat any of those.

I have had the Chili's Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie with vanilla ice cream. It was pretty tasty. So are they saying the Macaroni Grill Spaghetti and Meatballs is worse than anything else on their menu? I have had this angel hair pasta with chicken, shrimp and some sort of lemon cream sauce that definitely had to be loaded with fat and calories. Boy was it ever yummy :drool:

Is it bad that I am totally drooling and would eat any of these things right now? :drool: I worked at Pizzeria Uno for many, many years and ate the pizza every day, but I didn't gain any weight. Probably because I was working 12 hour shifts on my feet behind the bar.

I've never had any of these, but I sure would like to try that Chili's pie that made 'Worst Dessert'
