Q: How many calories are in Arby's Farmhouse Crispy Chicken Salad with Buttermilk Ranch dressing?
This salad has 630 calories, 45 grams of fat and more than half of the recommended daily value of sodium. Yikes! A better option would be the Chopped Farmhouse Roast Turkey Salad with Light Italian dressing (just 250 calories).
Q: How many calories are in an Arby's Melt?
Believe it or not, this sandwich is healthier than the salad! However, it still has 13 grams of fat and nearly 40 percent of the recommended sodium. (It's not as bad as the Three Cheese & Bacon Ultimate Angus Sandwich, which has 630 calories, 30 grams of fat, and 90 percent of the recommended sodium.)
Q: How many calories are in Subway's 6-inch Tuna on Wheat?
You would think this would be one of the healthiest options, right? Wrong! It has 470 calories, 12 grams of fat and more than 40 percent of the recommended daily sodium. A better choice would be Subway's 6-inch Turkey Breast on Wheat, with just 280 calories and 3.5 grams of fat. (Ahh, that's better!)
Q: How many calories in Taco Bell's Chicken Burrito Supreme?
Chicken is one of the healthier options at Taco Bell. With 390 calories and significantly less sodium than other menu items, the Chicken Burrito is a pretty good choice. Just don't get the Beef XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito, which has a whopping 880 calories, 42 grams of fat (14 grams of saturated fat!) and 84 percent of the recommended daily sodium.
Q: How many calories are in two slices of Pizza Hut's Veggie Lover's Hand-Tossed Style Pizza?
Two slices of this vegetarian-friendly pizza add up to 520 calories, 16 grams of fat (8 grams saturated) and nearly 50 percent of the recommended daily sodium. (And who eats only two slices?)
Q: How many calories are in Wendy's Caesar Salad with Homestyle Chicken Fillet?
All dressed up, with croutons, dressing, cheese and fried chicken, this menu option adds up to a whopping 690 calories, 41 grams of fat and 75 percent of the recommended daily sodium. Even the Wendy's Double Stack is healthier than that, with just 460 calories.
Q: How many calories are in KFC's Chicken Pot Pie?
Sure, it's got chicken and veggies, but that crust can sure add a lot! KFC's Chicken Pot Pie is 790 calories, with 45 grams of fat (and an appalling 37 grams of saturated fat, 185 percent of the recommended daily value) and 1,970 grams of sodium, more than 80 percent of the recommended daily amount.
Q: How many calories are in the Cinnabon Caramel Pecanbon cinnamon roll?
Pecans may seem healthy, but not in this case. This is one of the least healthy breakfast options of all time, weighing in at 1,100 calories, 47 grams of fat and 63 grams of sugar. But at least you get 14 grams of protein...
Q: How many calories do you think are in the Breakfast Power Sandwich from Panera?
At 340 calories, this breakfast item isn't all that bad — though it does have 15 grams of fat. Trim 8 grams of that fat by cutting out the cheese, and this could be a great way to start the day!
Q: How many calories are there in the beloved McRib?
The obsessed-over McRib sandwich from McDonald's has 500 calories, 26 grams of fat (10 grams saturated fat) and more than 40 percent of the recommended daily value of sodium. You can decide if that's reasonable.
Q: How many calories are in McDonald's Large French Fries?
What a coincidence! McDonald's large-sized fries also have 500 calories — but with 25 grams of fat, skipping this snack would probably be a good idea.
Q: How many calories does the Grande Vanilla Frappuccino (soy milk, no whip) from Starbucks have?
With 310 calories and 67 grams of sugar, this offering doesn't seem oh-so-healthy anymore! It's not even the healthiest Frappuccino on the menu. A Grande Coconut Creme Frappuccino with whole milk and no whip comes out to 230 calories and 42 grams of sugar.
Q: How many calories are in Burger King's Veggie Burger with cheese?
Wait, what? Yeah. Burger King's Veggie Burger with cheese has 450 calories, 20 grams of fat (5 grams of saturated fat) and more than half of the recommended daily value of sodium. Salad would be a better veggie-friendly choice.
Q: What about Burger King's TenderCrisp Chicken BLT Garden Fresh Salad, with Avocado Ranch Dressing?
NO WAY! With 690 calories, 48 grams of fat (12 grams of saturated fat!) and 73 percent of the recommended daily value of sodium, this salad is indeed worse than the veggie burger. Both are worse than Burger King's Fire-Grilled Double Cheeseburger (370 calories, 18 grams of fat).
Q: And let's not forget dessert. How many calories are in a small-sized Original Chocolate Frosty from Wendy's?
Yep, the old reliable Frosty has just 295 calories. Enjoy!
Q: How many calories do you think are in a small Baskin-Robbins Vanilla Milk Shake?
Hmm ... better go with the Frosty. The vanilla shake from Baskin-Robbins is a startling 720 calories.
Whoa, better read up on those nutrition labels!Better luck next time. Well done, fit foodie! Great job, champion calorie-counter!
