20 Worst Foods in America

Filed under: , ,

If you eat out regularly, it's time to face the music. After analyzing menus, nutritional labels and ingredient lists, Men's Health offers up its first annual 20 Worst Foods in America. Total calorie count was the main criterion, with many of these dishes serving up nearly an entire day's worth of calories in one meal -- before the side.

  • Number One Worst Offender: Outback Steakhouse's Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing -- 2,900 calories, 182 g fat, 240 carbs
  • Worst Starter: Chili's Awesome Blossom -- 2,710 calories, 203 g fat, 194 g carbs
  • Worst Pizza: Uno Chicago Grill's Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza -- a personal pizza with 2,310 calories, 162 g fat, 123 g carbs
  • Worst Nachos: On the Border's Stacked Border Nachos -- 2,740 calories, 166 g fat, 191 g carbs
  • Worst Breakfast: Bob Evan's Caramel Banana Pecan Cream Stacked and Stuffed Hotcakes -- 1,540 calories, 77 g fat, 198 g carbs

The other 15 are as utterly depressing as the above, even the Worst Salad packs 1,450 calories and 102 grams of fat. We ponder why Americans are so fat? I admit to sharing an Awesome Blossom in my past -- and you?

Not all is lost, Men's Health suggests sharing a non-fried, protein-based appetizer to keep you from overeating the entree. On the Border's Chicken Soft Tacos, Chili's Garlic & Lime Grilled Shrimp and Outback's Seared Ahi are a few options.
