From time to time, there is a void in life that only a cheeseburger can fill, right? Well, it turns out that cheeseburgers can fill much more than your stomach — they also fill up your arteries with trans-fats and sodium. Yes, they really are one of the most invasive foods of all time. And In-N-Out’s cheeseburger is a classic example.
Just one of these bad boys contains over 1000 calories, with 70 grams of fat and a whole day’s worth of sodium. So you either have one of these and nothing else throughout the day or have none (like, at all) and go for multiple well-balanced options.
Burger King's Oreo Shake
From a nostalgic perspective, we love milkshakes, they remind us of our childhood when we'd have a milkshake every Friday after school. This is why we need to say this — we're not complaining only on our own behalf but on behalf of milkshakes everywhere. Not to mention the fact that this is specifically from Burger King.
BK's Oreo shake features some seriously shocking amounts of sugar, 92 grams per serving! That's more than four times the recommended daily intake and it's just in one milkshake. if you're in the mood for a delicious shake, then you're better off making your own.
Popeyes Chicken Tenders
As far as we know, Popeyes chicken tenders are more than just carefully battered fried chicken pieces — they are deliciously crisp harbingers of doom. Let's face it though, if this photo doesn't tempt you to drop what you're doing and take a ride to good ol' Popeyes, then nothing will!
For a measly three-piece serving of these, you will get 340 calories, most of which are hydrogenated oils, which might not seem like a lot compared to other fast-food meals, but considering you are only getting three pieces, it is a huge amount. You're better of acting like Popeye and downing a can of spinach.
Pop-tarts make a good argument for conveniently packaged toast when you're short on time, but they might just be one of the worst ways you can start your day. You might thing that getting a toasted pocket filled with strawberry jam or Nutella is a good idea. Sure, it's frickin' delicious, but at what cost?
These toasted pastries have been around since the 60s (and even showed up in "Pulp Fiction"). And, they feature a sweet filling and frosted glaze in a variety of flavors. They are also loaded with a dangerous combination of sugars: refined white sugar, corn syrup, and high fructose corn syrup.
Ah, the classic french fry. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the ultimate side dish. It can pretty much go with anything, and the salty oiliness just keeps people coming back for more. They are so addictive! Eating an entire order of french fries is obviously not the healthiest meal option, we didn't need to tell you that. But just how unhealthy are these bad boys?
All french fries are deep-fried, which means they are extremely high in calories while also being fast-digested carbs, and eating them on a regular basis could negatively affect your artery function. As if that wasn't bad enough, they also have minimal nutritional benefits, which basically means they're empty calories.
