Do people even eat this stuff anymore? You bet your behind they do! Most people in America are aware that our fast food is about as unhealthy as it can be. Unfortunately, we live in a fast-paced world where the Jack in the Box and McDonald’s stores are still thriving quite well, Sometimes it’s just too convenient and even necessary should I dare say to order fast food than to prepare it yourself. What is this stuff doing to your body? Not that anyone cares, but if you do there is always the option to give them some feedback through the McDonald’s Voice and Jack Listens surveys. Doubt it will do you any good though. OK enough of my rant, let’s take a look at some of the worst fast food in America. If you actually do care
Hardee’s Two-thirds Pound Monster Thickburger
Yes, it looks delicious sitting up there on that menu, tempting you with its bacony, greasy, ooey cheesiness, but this burger is one of the most unhealthy menu items at any American fast food restaurant. It contains a whopping 1330 calories, which is more than the daily caloric intake for many dieters, and comes with a ton of fries and soda to boot. With 95 grams of fat, 2,820 grams of sodium, and 215 milligrams of cholesterol, this one is better to steer clear of, according to Fox.
While Asian restaurants do not usually make these types of lists, this fast food chain does not deliver what they advertise, according to The Fiscal Times. While Panda Express claims to sell gourmet Chinese food, the items on their menu are not fresh and the price is far too high.
Starbucks’ Venti Egg Nog Lotte
Another surprise resident in a blog about the worst fast food in American is Startbucks. As Business Insider points out, their “holiday beverages are delicious, but the combination of egg nog and whole milk adds up. Opting for low-fat or skim milk will help you save a few calories.” This item comes with 620 calories (for a drink!?), 29 grams of fat, and 300 milligrams of sodium.
Kentucky Fried Chicken Pot Pie
Surprise! All of the times that you chose pot pie over fried chicken may have been a mistake. Yes, it has veggies and may look more home-cooked healthy, but inside, this warm meat pie is 790 calories, 45 grams of fat, 37 grams of saturated fat, 1970 grams of sodium, and 75 milligrams of cholesterol.
Those are a few examples of the worst fast food in America. A good rule of thumb; if it is deliciously smothered in cheesy, bacony, greasy, goodness, it is probably not good for you.
