worst fast food meals

McDonald’s Big Breakfast with large biscuit, hotcakes, margarine, and syrup 1,370 calories 
64.5 grams fat (21.5 grams saturated fat) 
2,335 milligrams sodium 
49 grams sugar

First off, this meal has more than two-thirds of the calories you should eat in a day. Secondly, it has more than a day’s worth of saturated fat and, with the pancake syrup, more sugar than two packages of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Really, there’s only one decent item on this plate, and that’s the eggs. 
Everything else the pancakes, biscuit, sausage, and hash brown is the sort of food that gives you a body more like Grimace

450 calories
121 grams fat (6.5 grams saturated fat)
1,130 milligrams sodium

KFC Half Spicy Crispy Chicken Meal with macaroni and cheese, potato wedges and a biscuit 1,660 calories 
104 grams fat (27.5 grams saturated fat) 
5,050 milligrams sodium

Half a deep-fried chicken is bad news, especially considering the half KFC gives you: the bottom half. That means two drumsticks and two thighs — all dark meat. Not only are these the cheapest cuts, but they're also the fattiest. All told this meal has close to 85 percent of your day’s calories and more fat and sodium than you should eat in an entire day.

Burger King Large Triple Whopper with Cheese Value Meal with fries 1,790 calories 
111 grams fat (38 grams saturated fat, 3.5 grams trans fat) 
2,430 milligrams sodium

Never eat foods that are named for their oversized dimensions. Take the Triple Whopper with Cheese: You know it’s big, but you still probably don’t realize that it’s packing 1,200 calories and 80 grams of fat. A side of fries adds almost 600 more calories, and if you opt for a Coke, you’re at nearly 2,200 calories! 

Eat one of these meals a week for one year and you’ll put on more than 30 pounds.Eat this instead! Whopper Jr. with no mayo and a 6-piece Chicken Fries
510 calories
26 grams at (6.5 grams saturated fat)
