We all like to eat junk food sometimes. There are certain foods you can enjoy in moderation, and then there are foods (like the ones listed below) that you shouldn’t even consider consuming.
Here are three of the most calorie dense junk foods popular fast food restaurant chains offer today!
Carl’s Junior Double Six Dollar Burger
602 Grams – 1520 calories – 11g Fat – ?g Trans fat – 60g Carbs
When you see this hamburger, you can just tell it is full of fat and calories. But, it is still a popular menu item at Carl’s Jr. It is over half a pound of greasy, cheesy goodness that tasted so good, yet is so bad.
Arbys Sausage Gravy Biscuit
238 Grams – 961 Calories – 68g Fat – 0g Trans Fat – 107g Carbs
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, what should you eat? If you are looking to stay thin, you will probably want to avoid the Arby’s Sausage Gravy biscuit. While it doesn’t sound too dangerous, this little bundle of flaky dough and creamy gravy packs in almost 1000 calories. Add in an orange juice and some hash browns, and you are almost half way through your daily caloric requirements.
Dairy Queen Chicken Strip Basket
531 Grams – 1270 calories – 67g Fat – 12 g Trans Fat – 121g Carbs
Chicken is pretty healthy, right? It is usually preached as the healthy alternative to beef when people go to fast food restaurants to order a meal. But, that is not always the case. In the seemingly healthy looking dish called the “Dairy Queen Chicken Strip Basket”, there is over 1200 calories! Look back at the Carl’s Junior Double Six Dollar Burger…which one sounds healthier? If you add a glass of orange juice to this meal, you are almost consuming the same amount of calories. Looks can be deceiving!
Take home lesson:
It is OK to have junk food once in a while, but just be sure you know what you are eating. Some things that look relatively healthy can be quite deceiving!
