WOW! What an eye opening article! Thank you for publishing this- I wish some of the major news services would pick this up. If more people knew what they were eating, maybe the resaurants would be forced to clean up their acts. It seriously should be illegal for a restaurant to creat a single serving that contains a day's worth of any nutrient. In fact, the law should require that every single serving should contain no more than one-third the RDA of any nutrient. That would sure slow 'em down, wouldn't it?
Thank Goodness I am not a big Fad Food person, so I didn't indulge in any of those. Now if you would've said Milky Ways or Mini Reese Cups or even Butterfinger Crisp then you would've had my number! They sound fattening!

Now I know why some of the guys I play hockey with have to buy new shorts every few months. I'm afraid that just reading this article is going to put weight on me!

The whole Western World is getting fatter and sicker on cheap and cruelly factory farmed animal products like these. Restaurants should be deleting this kind of garbage and adding new healthier items - instead they're doing the opposite! Isn't there any money to be made in healthy food? I say give tax-breaks to companies who sell healthy food and ethically farmed products! I'd vote for it!
No, I have never had any of the 10 worst--thank goodness, but just looking at that huge BACON burger would lead most people to conclude that it must be about 2 or 3 meals worth of food.....someone is making lots of money from the poor food choices people make.
Wow, although I have never tried any of these items I am a big fan of breakfast and Denny's. I am sure whatever items I've had there were ridiculous like this list. I am afraid to eat out now!

The Pizza Hut Double Deep Pizza got me. I thought I'd eat just a little bit and I'd be ok. When I looked it up and and realized that little bit had put me over for the day I was mad!!!!!

Oops! I have had the Carl's Jr. -- that had to be tops on the list too! At least I went for the gusto.......... luckily my visits throught the drive through have decreased to about 2 -3 x's a year, now that I'm in 2008 I'll have only 1 drive-through experience -- and it won't be any of this crap!
