The 20 worst foods in America (II)

By: Matt Goulding from Men's Health Magazine


11: Worst steak
Lonestar 20 oz T-bone

  • 1,540 calories

  • 124 g fat

    Add a baked potato and Lonestar's Signature Lettuce Wedge, and this is a 2,700-calorie blowout.

    Choose with Your Head: The golden rule of steak restaurants is this: Limit yourself to a 9-ouncer or smaller. After all, that's more than half a pound of meat. You won't walk away hungry.

  • 12: Worst burger
    Carl's Jr. Double Six Dollar Burger

  • 1,520 calories

  • 111 g fat

    Carl's Jr. brags that it's home to this enormous sandwich, but the restaurant chain also provides convenient nutrition info on its Web site -- so ignorance is no excuse for eating it.

    A Simple Solution: The Low Carb Six Dollar Burger has just 490 calories.

    13: Worst salad
    On the Border Grande Taco Salad with Taco Beef

  • 1,450 calories 102 g fat

  • 78 g carbs 2,410 mg sodium

    This isn't an anomaly: Five different On the Border salads on the menu contain more than 1,100 calories each.

    The Salad for You: The Sizzling Chicken Fajita Salad supplies an acceptable 760 calories. But remember to choose a noncaloric beverage, such as water or unsweetened iced tea.

    14: Worst sandwich
    Quiznos Classic Italian (large)

  • 1,490 calories 85 g fat

  • 4,510 mg sodium 96 g carbs

    A large homemade sandwich would more likely provide about 500 calories.

    Cut the Calories: Isn't it obvious? Order a small -- or save half for later.

    15: Worst kids' meal
    Macaroni Grill Double Macaroni 'n' Cheese

  • 1,210 calories 62 g fat

  • 3,450 mg sodium

    It's like feeding your kid 1 1/2 boxes of Kraft mac 'n' cheese.

    Your Best Option: The 390-calorie Grilled Chicken and Broccoli.

    16: Worst Mexican entree
    Chipotle Mexican Grill Chicken Burrito

  • 1,179 calories 47 g fat

  • 125 g carbs

  • 2,656 milligrams (mg) sodium

    Despite a reputation for using healthy, fresh ingredients, Chipotle's menu is limited to king-size burritos, overstuffed tacos, and gigantic salads -- all of which lead to a humongous waistline.

    Make Over the Menu: There are two ways to Men's Healthify a burrito at Chipotle: (1) 86 the rice and tortilla and request your meat, vegetables, and beans served in a bowl or (2) bring a friend and saw the burrito in half.

    17: Worst 'healthy' burger
    Ruby Tuesday Bella Turkey Burger

  • 1,145 calories 71 g fat

  • 56 g carbs

    We chose this burger for more than its calorie payload: Its name implies that it's healthy.

    The Truly Healthy Choice: Skip burgers entirely (few at Ruby Tuesday come in under 1,000 calories). Instead, order a 9-ounce sirloin with a side of steamed vegetables, and keep things under 1,000 calories.

    18: Worst supermarket meal
    Pepperidge Farm Roasted Chicken Pot Pie (whole pie)

  • 1,020 calories 64 g fat

  • 86 g carbs

    The label may say this pie serves two, but who ever divided a small pot pie in half? The sad truth is, once you crack the crust, there will be no stopping -- which makes this 300 calories worse than anything else you'll find in the freezer case.

    Pick a Better Pie: Swanson's chicken pot pie has just 400 calories.

    19: Worst drink
    Jamba Juice Chocolate Moo'd Power Smoothie (30 fl oz)

  • 900 calories 10 g fat

  • 183 g carbs (166 g sugar)

    Jamba Juice calls it a smoothie; we call it a milk shake. In fact, this beverage contains as much sugar as 2 pints of Ben & Jerry's butter pecan ice cream.

    Turn Down the Power: Seventy-five percent of this chain's "power smoothies" contain in excess of 100 grams of sugar. Stick to Jamba's lower-calorie All Fruit Smoothies, which are the only menu items that contain no added sugar. And always opt for the 16-ounce "small."

    20: Worst fast-food chicken meal
    Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips from McDonald's (5 pieces) with creamy ranch sauce

  • 830 calories

  • 55 grams (g) fat (4.5 g trans fat)

  • 48 g carbohydrates

    The only thing "premium" about these strips is the caloric price you pay. Add a large fries and regular soda and this seemingly innocuous chicken meal tops out at 1,710 calories.

    Change Your Chicken: 20 McNuggets have the same impact. Instead, choose Mickey D's six-piece offering with BBQ sauce and save yourself 530 calories.
