What Are The 10 Most Unhealthy Fast Food Items?
If you hit the drive-thru often, you may want to know what the 10 most unhealthy items on fast-food menu's are and we have them for you here.
When you feel the hunger coming on and you don't have much time a fast food drive-thru can be an angel but can that come at the cost of your health?
Let's face it, we all know that most fast food is not the healthiest food choice that is out there but just how unhealthy can menu items be?
Top 10 Most Unhealthy Fast Food Items on Menus
Below are the top 10 most unhealthy fast food items found on a drive-thru menu:
#10 Shake Shack
Although there are no Shake Shack locations in West Michigan, you will find half a dozen locations scattered around the Detroit area. Shake Shack's Double Down Fries contain 1,910 calories. That is without a burger or a drink.
Even politicians need a fast food break from time to time. Michiganders who love walleye, watch out for Culvers 3-piece Northwoods Walleye Dinner because it packs a whopping 1,930 calories and that is without a concrete mixer or cheese curds.
#8 Checkers and Rally's
In case you didn't know, Checkers and Rally's are the same thing. Michigan has Checkers on the west side and Rally's on the east side of the state. The big calorie item on these fast food chain menus is the 20-piece garlic parmesan classic wings coming in at 2,040 calories. Pretty much a day's worth of calories in 20 wings.
#7 Jimmy John's
If you like your calories "Freaky Fast" then you will want to order Jimmy John's The J.J. Gargantuan which comes in at 2,160 calories.
#6 Buffalo Wild Wings
I'm not sure if there is a Buffalo Wild Wings with a drive-thru but you can order carry-out. If you carry out 30 of their traditional wings that are drums only your waist will soon carry 2,240 extra calories.
#5 Pizza Hut
Brace yourself, pizza lovers, because this "Za" from Pizza Hut called the Loaded Pepperoni Feast Large Cheesy Bites Pizza has a gut-busting 3,153 calories. Hopefully, if you are ordering one of these it is to share with lots of people.
#4 Little Caesars
To not be outdone by Pizza Hut, Little Caesars offers up a Detroit Style 5 Meat Feast Deep Dish Specialty Pizza that packs 3,500 calories but it tastes fabulous.
#3 Moe's Nachos
Even though there are only 3 Moe's Nachos in Michigan, depending upon how you order your nacho, you could wind up with a plate of 4,334 calories of tasty Tex-Mex cuisine.
#2 Papa John's
Papa John's offers their Philly Cheesesteak XL Stuffed Crust pizza that has almost 3 days' worth of calories in one pie coming in at 4,590. If you break it down by the slice it sounds much better, these come in either 10 or 12 slices. One slice of a 10 slice pizza is 459 calories and one slice of a 12 slice pizza is 382.5 calories. That should make you feel a little better.
The most calories from any fast food menu item come from Hardee's. Their fried chicken 12 piece and 6 biscuits is the most unhealthy food item you can chow down with 6,490 calories.
