For too long, the humble margarita pizza has been overlooked when it comes to the myriad of options in America’s pizza joints. What really makes this pizza pie unhealthy is the heaping helping of Italian sausage. Usually, people go for a classic pepperoni pizza, which is technically also a sausage pizza. But this takes things to a whole new level.
One large order of Little Caesars’ Italian sausage pizza has 5,620 milligrams of sodium. Not only does it have an excessive amount of sodium, but it also contains more than the daily recommended intake of calories at 2,660 calories per pizza!
Condiments and dressings can be sneaky and many people don't realize they can ruin what would otherwise be a healthy meal. Enjoying your favorite meal with some BBQ might be an actual sport in some parts of America. And we imagine that there are plenty of people around the country who would consider themselves to be full-on BBQ athletes.
However, making BBQ sauce as unhealthy as it can be is surprisingly easy. Just one serving can rake in 15 grams of sugar per serving. Why not just pour sugar and high fructose corn syrup straight onto your meal? Basically the same thing, right?
KFC Cheesy Bacon Bowl
There's more to KFC than just its fried chicken and coleslaw, aside from its limited items, its menu also includes a whole range of sandwiches, sides, sodas, and sweet treats. It also includes a variety of dishes that are going to strip away some years from your life. But we imagine it will be worth every bite. Exhibit A - the Cheesy Bacon Bowl.
This is where its dubious Russian roulette of food comes into play, which was inspired by bringing together a variety of ingredients into one convenient and hopefully healthy-ish meal. But here is the kicker — it's one of KFC's least healthy menu items, and it'll have a big impact on your ticker.
Taco Bell's Grilled Cheese Burrito
We won't lie, Taco Bell has quite an impressive list of menu items. And while most of us would probably agree that their burritos are delicious, it's quite a stretch to call them healthy. And we're not going to lie, this grilled cheese burrito looks absolutely delicious. But usually, the most delicious something looks, the more lethal it actually is.
And sure enough, we were right about this one. This massive burrito is packed with beef, cheese sauce, seasoned rice, sour cream, a three-cheese blend, tortilla chips, and chipotle sauce. While cheese fiends might be tempted to try this meal, it certainly isn't advisable.
White Castle Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
Across the United States, there's certainly no shortage of fast food chains today. From burgers to pizza and of course, tacos, we have so many choices that it's sometimes hard to keep up with them all. With so many competitors, White Castle wanted to do something a little different which is probably why they began offering Mozzarella Cheese Sticks.
But one single pack of 10, yes that is right, just 10 Mozzarella sticks total 1,490 calories with 109 grams of fat. Just in this one serving you can almost eat your entire day's worth of calories! Not a good idea, at all.
