The Worst Drive-Through Foods in America

Wow....is this bad or what????


Carl’s Jr. Double Six Dollar Burger with Medium Natural Cut Fries and 32 oz Coke

2,618 calories 144 g fat (51.5 g saturated fat) 2,892 mg sodium

Of all the gut-growing, heart-stopping, life-threatening burgers in the fast food world, there is none whose damage to your general well-being is as catastrophic as this. Consider these heart-stopping comparisons: This meal has the caloric equivalent of 13 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donuts; the saturated fat equivalent of 52 strips of bacon; and the salt equivalent of seven and a half large orders of McDonald’s French fries!
And I guess I'll have to give up the occasional summer 'shake' at McDonald's. Look at this:


McDonald's Large Triple Thick Chocolate Milkshake

1,160 calories 27 g fat (16 g saturated fat) 168 g sugar 510 mg sodium

You’d be better off eating two Quarter Pounders than sucking down one of these belt-breaking shakes. Steer clear of milkshakes at the Golden Arches. If you must have a frozen dessert, order a vanilla ice cream cone to save more than 1,000 calories.

What a bunch of food crap. I think it may be safer to eat a half a pint of ice cream where I could at least READ the label.
