Who does not love a fast food burger? Most people love anything they do not have to cook themselves or the convenience of just going to the drive up window and picking up their breakfast, lunch or dinner. But what are the real consequences of eating those fast food burgers? Clogged arteries and your waistline expanding? What are some of the places you should avoid, who has the most unhealthy fast food burgers? You are about to find out, brace yourself.
These are in no particular order and all the information can be had at the restaurants own websites. Since there are so many to choose from this list is only going to include the top four of the fast food world, McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell and Wendy’s.
Wendy’s burgers to avoid at all costs:
Baconator Triple Burger 1,330 calories and 86 grams of fat Bacon Deluxe Triple Burger 1,140 calories and 71 grams of fat Triple Cheeseburger 1,030 calories and 62 grams of fat
Burger King burger’s you really should bypass if you do not want to have to have a bypass:
Texas Triple Whopper Sandwich 1,310 calories and 88 grams of fat Triple Whopper Sandwich with cheese 1,250 calories and 84 grams of fat BK Quad Stacker 930 calories and 65 grams of fat
McDonald’s surprisingly does better than both Wendy’s and Burger King in that their burgers usually only have around 40 grams of fat:
Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese 740 calories and 42 grams of fat The Angus Mushroom & Swiss Burger 770 calories and 40 grams of fat
Just a head’s up avoid the large Deluxe Breakfast at McDonald’s it contains 1,150 calories and 60 grams of fat.
Taco Bell, ok they are not offering burgers, but even their seemingly “healthy” foods are loaded with calories and fat.
Volcano Nachos 1,000 calories and 62 grams of fat Chipotle Steak Taco Salad 900 calories and 57 grams of fat Chicken Ranch Taco Salad 910 calories and 54 grams of fat
How depressing is that? Never fear, there are many other options and remember what makes these items so unhealthy and loaded with fat is most often the double and triple part of the burgers along with the many condiments and other topping choices offered to please the public and curb all those nasty hunger pains. The best options for “fast food” is to grab a piece of fruit to hold off the hunger beast until you can eat a more appropriate meal, plus the added bonus of less fast food in your life is extra cash in your pocket.
