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).
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.)
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!)
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.
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?)
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.
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.
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...
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Yep, the old reliable Frosty has just 295 calories. Enjoy!
Hmm ... better go with the Frosty. The vanilla shake from Baskin-Robbins is a startling 720 calories.
