Worst Foods in America: Kevin Trudeau Show

February 21st, 2011

Two pieces of bread. That’s the bedrock of every hamburger on the planet. Here’s the caveat: With the power to create comes the power to inflate. In fact, the average cheeseburger has ballooned from 333 to 600 calories in the last 20 years.

Some burgers even top out at 2,000 calories. For this there’s no greater evidence than the greasy bread-boats being served at our most popular burger shops. Sure, there are decent options out there, but more often than not the junk that comes stuffed between the buns is enough to turn Jessica Simpson into Homer Simpson. Like these five burgers listed below. They’re gut bombs in the worst way. Luckily, Eat This, Not That! discovered healthier alternatives for each of them.

Number 20

Worst Kids’ Meal: California Pizza Kitchen Kids Curly Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Calories : 1,038

Saturated Fat : 38 grams

Sodium : 1,651 mg

This meal delivers as much saturated fat as an adult should consume over the course of 48 hours.

Number 18

Worst Healthy Sandwich: Blimpie Special Vegetarian (12-inch)

Calories : 1,180

Saturated Fat : 59 grams

Sodium : 3,540 mg

This sandwich gnaws through nearly an entire day’s fat allotment and more than 1 1/2 days of sodium.

Number 17

Worst Fast-Food Burger: Wendy’s Triple Baconator

Calories : 1,350

Saturated Fat : 90 grams

Sodium : 2,780 mg

It’s fat on top of fat on top of fat, 10 layers in all — a tower of nutritional terror.

Number 16

Worst Side: Five Guys Large Fries

Calories : 1,464

Saturated Fat : 71 grams

Sodium : 213 mg

You’re better off ordering two “little” sandwiches and skipping the fries
