The 19 worst drive-thru foods in America

Want to know why fast food is bad for you? Just check out some of these offerings! Eating a few cheeseburgers out every week may way more detrimental than you think. Topping the charts is the Worst Cheeseburger:

Hardee’s Monster Thickburger
1,420 calories

A day’s worth of calories in a single meal. Or how about this waist expanding offering:

Carl’s Jr. Double Six Dollar Burger
with Medium Natural Cut Fries and 32 oz Coke
2,618 calories

Having that for lunch would be more calories than you should have for the entire day, plus if you actually eat a 600 calories breakfast and a 1,000 dinner (which would be typical) you would consume over 4,200 calories in a single day. If you did this 3 times a week you would be gaining weight at about 3 pounds per week. This is the diet for you if you want to be a Sumo Wrestler.

Fast food may be convenient, but you’ll be paying for it in other ways!

If you think the kids meals are better, think again:

Burger King Kids Double Cheeseburger and Kids Fries with Small Coke
950 calories
42 g fat (17 g saturated fat, 4.5 g trans fats)
1,410 mg sodium

This should make you think twice before heading to the drive through.

Drive-thru foods may be convenient and easy on the wallet, but they’re loaded with unhealthy fats, added sugars, carbohydrates, and sodium. Translation: They’re no bargain when it comes to your health.
