Hungry Girl Today: 11.16.06


Today is National Fast Food Day. And HG is ALL OVER IT...

Drive-Thru Shockers!!!

We’re 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!)

It’s 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…VERY 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

King’s castle. A teeny two-ounce serving of Ken’s Honey Mustard Dressing

packs a wallop - 270 calories and 23 grams of fat! That’s 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, it’s not the cheesy beef burrito or the layered chalupa that clocks in as

the Bell’s biggest heifer (although we’d 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!

McDonald’s - 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 BK’s TRIPLE WHOPPER with Cheese!

Yikes! Coming in a close second was Mickey D’s 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!
