Sometimes, it's good to be scared.
That's what runs through my head when I see worst-of lists. The worst breakfast food, the worst restaurant, the worst anything just seems like a good thing to avoid.
But then there are burgers. Who doesn't like a tasty burger every now and then?
Now, I don't mind indulging every now and then. It's better to eat something like that once in a while then to deny yourself until you get to a point where you just lose all your willpower and scarf them down simply because you have been keeping this from yourself. We're human. It happens.
But if you're going to down a burger, best to avoid one of these. You'll have to click the link to see the full list but here's the info provided with each burger.
Number 3 on the list is the Worst Fast Food Cheeseburger, and that dishonor goes to the Burger King Triple Whopper Sandwich with Cheese and Mayo.
84 g fat (32 g saturated, 3.5 g trans)
1,600 mg sodium
With one of these, I'd get more than half of the calories I try to consume each day and look at all those fat grams.
With each burger, there is an alternative, and in this case it's Burger King's Tendergrill Chicken Sandwich with mayo
21 g fat (4 g saturated, 0 g trans)
1,220 mg sodium
Much more reasonable, though the amount of sodium is still high.
Some things that jumped out at me:
* Don't be fooled by chicken and turkey; just because it has poultry doesn't mean it's healthy
* Don't be fooled by reputation either; I was surprised to see In n Out on the list, to be honest.
* Just because something is small doesn't mean it's better.
