The Five Least Healthy Items Served In American Restaurants:
The Center for Science in the Public Interest just released its annual report on the LEAST HEALTHY ITEMS served at chain restaurants around the country. And as you might guess, they're absolutely LOADED with calories and salt.
Remember . . . the average person isn't supposed to have more than 2,000 calories a day, or 2,300 milligrams of salt. And all of these meals put you close to . . . or OVER . . . those limits
#1.) IHOP'sCountry Fried Steak and Eggs. It has 1,760 calories, 23 grams of saturated fat, over 3,700 milligrams of salt, and almost two days' worth of sugar.
#2.) Johnny Rockets'Bacon Cheddar Double Cheeseburger. On its own, it has 1,770 calories . . . which is more than THREE McDonald's Quarter Pounders with Cheese. Then if you add fries and a shake, it's about twice that.
#3.) The Chocolate Zuccotto Cake at Maggiano's Little Italy. It's got 1,820 calories, 62 grams of saturated fat, and 26 teaspoons of sugar.
They also have an 18-ounce Veal Porterhouse that comes with potatoes and caramelized onions, and packs over 2,700 calories, 45 grams of saturated fat, and 3,700 milligrams of salt.
#4.) Chili'sFull Rack of Baby Back Ribs. It comes with cinnamon apples and French fries and has a grand total of 2,330 calories, 45 grams of saturated fat, and 6,500 milligrams of salt. Or almost three times the sodium you should have in a day.
#5.) Cheesecake Factory's Bistro Shrimp Pasta somehow manages to have 3,120 calories and 89 grams of saturated fat. And their Crispy Chicken Costoletta has 2,610 calories. That's like full 12-piece bucket of KFC.
