I stumbled upon this article on Yahoo about the worst fast food items in America. My mouth fell open when I saw this particular item (can you believe 144 grams of fat in one meal?!!) I'm no health fanatic, but still I just about had a heart attack when I saw this! Check it out:

Carl's Jr. Double Six Dollar Burger
with Medium Natural cut Fries and 32 oz Coke
2,618 Calories
144 g fat (51.5 g saturated fat)
2892 mg sodium

Of all the gut-growing, heart-stopping, life-threatening burgers in the fast food world, there is none whose damage to your general well-being is as catastrophic as this. Consider these heart-stopping comparisons: This meal has the caloric equivalent of 13 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donuts; the saturated fat equivalent of 52 strips of bacon; and the salt equivalent of seven and a half large orders of McDonald's French fries!

Ouch that is brutal!!! I've had more fast food since getting pregnant than I've had in the last year probably. Ugh. I DID show self-restraint in Costco yesterday when I bypassed the big box of corndogs! And now I'm wanting one!

yeah that's crazy. i just saw something the other day about some other caloric nightmares, most of them very surprising. Apparently some of the worst drinks come from Jamba Juice with the Peanut Butter Mood topping the charts with roughly 2,000 calories!
