The 20 Worst Foods in America

Sure, a turkey burger sounds healthy. But is it, really? Not if you order the Bella from Ruby Tuesday, which packs a whopping 1,145 calories. (And yes, that's before a side of fries.)

To further enlighten you on the prevalence of preposterous portions, we spent months analyzing menus, nutrition labels, and ingredient lists to identify the food industry's worst offenders. Our primary criterion? Sheer caloric impact. After all, it's the top cause of weight gain and the health problems that accompany it. (As you read, keep in mind that 2,500 calories a day is a reasonable intake for the average guy.) We also factored in other key nutritional data, such as excessive carbohydrates and fat, added sugars, trans fats, and sodium. The result is our first annual list of the worst foods in America.

Eat at your own risk.

2: Worst starter

Chili's Awesome Blossom

2,710 calories

203 g fat

194 g carbs

6,360 mg sodium

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.

We eat out at Chili's about twice a month....I almost always order the mushroom swiss burger and sub the fries with a caesar salad. Red Robin sucks monkey ballz...or at least the last few times I've eaten there.

wow! are there any government guidelines on salt intake?

the fsa here says no more than 6 grams a day which makes "Chili's Awesome Blossom" even worse. http://www.salt.gov.uk/no_more_than_6.html

Again its common sense when you think about it - but its a little eye-opening that you're better off getting a sirloin steak than a burger (even a turkey or chicken burger) and that on balance the steak has a lot less less fat and salt.

American portion sizes are usually large which contributes to overeating and a lot more fatties taking up space. The reasoning by restaurants is that the way to satisfy customers is to stuff them and charge higher prices to boot.

I'm waiting for more restaurants to get a clue and offer reduced portion sizes and prices so people can tighten their belts in more ways than one during the recession.
