Hungry Girl Today: 11.16.06
Today is National Fast Food Day. And HG is ALL OVER IT...
Were outing some scary stuff. HG Warning: Offensive nutritionals ahead
Dairy Queen - 1/2 lb. Flamethrower GrillBurger
(1,180 calories, 90g fat, 1g fiber = 31 Points!)
Its no secret that beef burgers are high in calories and fat, but the
nutritionals on this giant griller are absolutely absurd. 90 GRAMS OF
FAT?!?!?!! DQ something different
Burger King - TRIPLE WHOPPER with Cheese
(1,230 calories, 82g fat, 3g fiber = 31 Points!)
Some things never change; this triple-threat remains a top offender on the
BK menu. And check out these creepy condiments we found lurking in the
Kings castle. A teeny two-ounce serving of Kens Honey Mustard Dressing
packs a wallop - 270 calories and 23 grams of fat! Thats 7 Points...for
dressing?! And just one ounce of BK's Zesty Onion Ring Dipping Sauce has
150 calories, 15 grams of fat, and a 4-Point price tag. Yeesh!
Taco Bell - Fiesta Taco Salad
(860 calories, 46g fat, 12g fiber = 20 Points!)
Nope, its not the cheesy beef burrito or the layered chalupa that clocks in as
the Bells biggest heifer (although wed stay away from those, too!). Believe
it or not, a SALAD has earned that honor! Taco B's Fiesta Taco Salad is
crammed with the most fat and calories -- an alarming 860 calories and 46
fat grams, to be exact. Ay, caramba!
McDonalds - 10 pc. Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips
(1,270 calories, 66g fat, 0g fiber = 31 Points!)
Chicken?!? The worst on the menu?!? Sad but true, people. These sorry
strips cram in more calories than BKs TRIPLE WHOPPER with Cheese!
Yikes! Coming in a close second was Mickey Ds Deluxe Breakfast (1,220
calories, 61g fat, 4g fiber = 29 Points). That is no way to start your day
Arby's - Sausage Gravy Biscuit
(961 calories, 68g fat, 1g fiber = 25 Points!)
Look...another breakfast blunder! This one waddles in with nearly 70 grams
of fat! But, there are quite a few Arby's items elsewhere on the menu that
deserve not-so-honorable mentions. When it comes to sandwiches, avoid
the "Market Fresh" Roast Turkey Ranch & Bacon Sandwich (834 calories, 38g
fat, 4g fiber = 19 Points). As for side orders, stray far away from the 8-pc.
Mozzarella Sticks (852 calories, 56g fat, 4g fiber = 21 Points). And do not
make dessert of a Pecan Sticky Bun (688 calories, 22g fat, 5g fiber = 15
Points). If you put that all together for a three-course lunch, you'd wind up
with a 2,374-calorie, 116g-of-fat, 55-Point platter! Gross!
