The 100 Unhealthiest Foods of 2019 

From grocery stores to your favorite restaurants, there are plenty of foods you need to steer clear of.

The grocery store aisles are stuffed with unhealthy foods, and each year more processed foods are added to the shelves. Anywhere from the chip aisle to the freezer section, you're bound to come across packaged foods that are just downright unhealthy for you. The same can be said for restaurant menus, whether it's a sit-down place like Applebee's or a quick service such as McDonald's.

At Eat This, Not That!, we make it our mission to uncover the most unhealthy food items, so you can make better eating decisions both at home and in the restaurant. Here, we've brought together the top 100 of the worst food products and menu items that debuted this year, and we also called out several unhealthy foods that have been around and remain popular (we're lookin' at you, Bloomin' Onion). And for other foods you should avoid, here are 100 Foods So Unhealthy They're Evil.

The Criteria

In order to choose the unhealthiest foods of 2019, each food item had to meet at least two of the requirements listed in our criteria. We used this list of nutritional criteria to select the products on this list.

Calories: Any restaurant meal with more than 1,000 calories (50 percent of a standard 2,000-calorie-a-day diet) qualified for the list.

Fat: Equal to or more than 13 grams of fat, which is 20 percent of your daily recommended value (DRV) of fat. Fat from nuts alone did not qualify.

Saturated Fat: Equal to or more than 4 grams, which is 20 percent of your DRV of saturated fat.

Trans Fat: Any value over 0 grams of trans fat in a food qualified a food item for this list.

Sodium: Equal to or more than 500 milligrams sodium per serving, which is more than 20 percent of your DRV of sodium.

Fiber: Anything with less than 1 gram of fiber. (The FDA recommends consuming at least 25 grams of fiber a day on a 2,000 calorie diet.)

Sugar: More than 10 grams of added sugars, which is between 26 and 40 percent of your DRV of added sugars, according to the American Heart Association.

Sugar Alcohols: Equal to or more than 10 grams of sugar alcohols. Consuming too much sugar alcohol in one sitting can have a laxative-like effect; additionally, sugar alcohols might not be as safe as the industry initially assumed. Once thought to bypass the body's metabolic process, a sugar alcohol found in your favorite foods—erythritol—can be metabolized by and even produced in the human body, according to groundbreaking research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. (Translation: sugar alcohols probably do have calories after all.) Even worse? The Cornell University researchers also identified erythritol as a biomarker for increasing fat mass. And if you're watching your sugar intake, you'll want to see the 30 Sugariest Foods In America as well!

Groceries

We know shopping at the grocery store can be overwhelming, and who has time to check the nutrition label of every single item? Some of the unhealthiest items on shelves might be obvious, while others will leave you surprised by what's lurking beneath the surface. From sodium bombs and staggering amounts of sugar to empty calories and fat-laden fare, these are the unhealthiest groceries of 2019.

1

Hostess Twinkies Cereal

Photo courtesy Post Consumer Brands
1 cup: 180 calories, 7 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 135 mg sodium, 29 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 16 g sugar), 1 g protein

Just when you thought actual Twinkies were bad enough, Hostess went ahead and put them in cereal form. With a staggering six grams of saturated fat, this cereal wipes out around 30 percent of your daily recommended intake if you follow a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet. Remember: this is starting at breakfast, the first meal of the day! We'll absolutely pass on this dessert disguised as a breakfast cereal.

And there are plenty of cereals you should stay far away from. Check out The Unhealthiest Cereals on the Planet for more.

2

Dove Triple Chocolate Gelato Bar

dove gelato

1 bar: 240 calories, 14 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 45 mg sodium, 26 g carbs (2 g fiber, 19 g sugar), 3 g protein

Nine grams of saturated fat? That's nearly 50 percent of your daily allowance! Not to mention that there are 16 grams of added sugar in just one bar. We get it, Dove chocolates are smooth and irresistible, but we can assure you this gelato bar is not worth the excess added sugars.

Hershey's Gold Bar

hersheys gold bar in packaging

1 bar: 390 calories, 24 g fat (13 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 150 mg sodium, 39 g carbs (1 g fiber, 35 g sugar), 6 g protein

This entire bar contains 24 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat, and 35 grams of sugar (30 of which are added sugars). Does it get any scarier than that? And we all know how easy it is to mindlessly much away on a sweet treat like this one, so you'd be done with it in no time. Given those numbers, everything about this pretzel- and peanut-filled chocolate bar screams for you to leave it in the candy aisle.

Pillsbury Grands! Strawberry & Cream Cinnamon Rolls

pillsbury strawberry and cream rolls

1 roll with icing (99 g): 300 calories, 7 g fat (3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 520 mg sodium, 56 g carbs (2 g fiber, 24 g sugar), 5 g protein

Pillsbury does have the best pre-packaged cinnamon roll dough on the market, and if you add a strawberry-flavored icing into the equation, it only amplifies its deliciousness. However, we encourage you to not have these for breakfast every Saturday. Why? Each roll packs in 24 grams of sugar, and the majority of those are added sugars. We know how easy it is to eat more than one, too, so you're more likely to eat two or three times that sugar in one sitting. Why not just eat strawberries with cinnamon toast instead?

5

Kellogg's Peeps Marshmallow Cereal

kellogs peeps marshmallow cereal

1 cup (29 g): 110 calories, 0.5 g fat (0 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 120 mg sodium, 26 g carbs (1 g fiber, 13 g sugar), 1 g protein

We already know Peeps are literally made of sugar, so is it any surprise that just one cup of this cereal also contains an inordinate amount of the sweet stuff—13 grams—per just one cup?

Sugar sneaks its way into so many unexpected meals. Need proof? Here are the 35 Sugariest Restaurant Meals on the Planet.

6

Cheetos Flavor Shots Flamin' Hot Asteroids

cheetos flavor shots

1 package (35.4 g): 200 calories, 13 g fat (2 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 320 mg sodium, 19 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 0 g sugar), 2 g protein

We get the appeal of this snack, but unfortunately, these asteroids are the epitome of empty calories. They provide no nutritional benefits for you, all while costing you calories, carbs, and sodium.

7

Pop-Tarts SPLITZ

pop tarts splitz

1 pastry (50 g): 200 calories, 5 g fat (2 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 200 mg sodium, 35 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 14 g sugar), 2 g protein

A single Pop-Tart that's half sugar cookie and half brownie batter flavored? You know this can't be good! Just one of these thin pastries has 200 calories and not even offer a single gram of satiating fiber.

8

Hot Pockets Sweet Treats Cinnamon Roll

nestle hot pockets sweet treats

1 stick (71 g): 230 calories, 10 g fat (4 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 115 mg sodium, 32 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 14 g sugar), 3 g protein

Is it sad that we would recommend you eat one of Hot Pockets' new high-protein steak and cheddar pocket over their new sweet treats? At least with the savory pocket, you get more than four times the protein than the cinnamon roll sweet treats offer. You'll be lucky if this sugary stick keeps you full for more than an hour.

9

Hostess Ding Dongs Ice Cream Sandwiches

hostess ding dongs

1 sandwich (49 g): 180 calories, 9 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 75 mg sodium, 22 g carbs (0 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 2 g protein

It's pretty huge that Hostess decided to make the 52-year-old Ding Dongs cakes into an ice cream treat, but yikes, the saturated fat content is high for just one little ice cream sandwich. Coconut and palm oil are largely to blame for that.

Mexican Jalapeño M&Ms

m&ms mexican jalapeno

1 ounce (28 g) or about 12 pieces: 140 calories, 7 g fat (3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 15 mg sodium, 17 g carbs (1 g fiber, 15 g sugar), 3 g protein

M&Ms launched three new internationally inspired flavors this year: Mexican Jalapeño, Thai Coconut, and English Toffee. We love the idea of chocolate with a kick, but not when it has 14 grams of added sugar for such a small amount.

11

Keebler Fudge Covered Coconut Dreams

keebler coconut dreams fudge covered cookies

2 cookies (33 g): 170 calories, 9 g fat (7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 60 mg sodium, 20 g carbs (1 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 1 g protein

We know, Keebler cookies are delicious, but they're high in fat and low in both fiber and protein. There's also a few weird additives and preservatives in these little bite-sized cookies such as TBHQ and sorbitan tristearate. Sorry, but it's best to pass on these.

12

Marie Callender's Beef & Bean Chili Cornbread Pie

marie calendar beef and bean
Courtesy of Marie Callender's
1 container (332 g): 520 calories, 28 g fat (12 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 1,030 mg sodium, 51 g carbs (9 g fiber, 14 g sugar), 17 g protein

This frozen meal is saturated in sodium and fat. We suggest you avoid this new Marie Callender's frozen meal at all costs!

13

Contadina Pizzettas Four Cheese Pizza Bites

contadina four cheese frozen bites

5 pizza bites: 270 calories, 10 g fat (5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 510 mg sodium, 34 g carbs (6 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 11 g protein

We love that Contadina includes cauliflower powder in the crust of the pizza bites. However, in just five small bites, you still end up consuming five grams of saturated fat (which is about 25 percent of your daily allowance), and just over 500 milligrams of sodium. And really, are you only going to eat five?

14

Nestle Toll House Edible Cookie Dough

nestle toll house edible cookie dough

2 TBSP: 140 calories, 5 g fat (2 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 110 mg sodium, 21 g carbs (0 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 0 g protein

First, let's talk about the serving size here. Who is just going to eat two tablespoons of cookie dough? We know the answer and that's very few. Not to mention this product is void of fiber and protein, but manages to pack 12 grams of added sugar into each serving? We'll pass.

Sadly, there are more treats your sweet tooth should do without. Here are the 50 Unhealthiest Desserts on the Planet.

15

Heinz Kranch Sauce

bottle of heinz kranch ketchup and ranch sauce

2 TBSP (25 g): 100 calories, 10 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 210 mg sodium, 3 g carbs (0 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 0 g protein

Can we just talk about this crazy food that came out this year? Heinz has really done the most with this combination of ketchup and ranch. Our issue is that just two tablespoons will cost you about eight percent of your daily allowance of saturated fat, likely from the buttermilk, and it contains a list of additives and preservatives.

16

Banana Creme Frosted Flakes Cereal

kelloggs frosted flakes banana cream cereal

3/4 cup (29 g): 110 calories, 0 g fat (0 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 150 mg sodium, 25 g carbs (0 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 1 g protein

Our issue with this banana creme-flavored cereal is not that it's high in fat or sodium, but rather that it's high in sugar and offers virtually no fiber or protein. This is not one of the best kids' breakfast cereals out there! You can do better.

17

Pillsbury Toaster Chocolate Toaster Strudel

pillsbury toaster chocolate strudel

1 pastry with icing (55 g): 180 calories, 7 g fat (3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 190 mg sodium, 28 g carbs (1 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 3 g protein

Yikes: One chocolate pastry boasts 12 grams of sugar and only one gram of fiber. We won't fall for that empty-calorie trap, no matter how enticing a chocolate pastry may sound!

18

Top Ramen Hot & Spicy Beef

1 package (85 g): 380 calories, 14 g fat (7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,520 mg sodium, 54 g carbs (2 g fiber, <1 g sugar), 9 g protein

One package of these ramen noodles has more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium. For perspective, you should refrain from eating more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium each day, and after eating this meal you'll be left with just 800 milligrams to spare for the rest of the day.

19

Tillamook Double Nutty Peanut Butter Ice Cream

tillamook double nutty peanut butter ice cream tub

131 (g): 460 calories, 34 g fat (12 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 250 mg sodium, 31 g carbs (2 g fiber, 27 g sugar), 11 g protein

Look, we love peanut butter and ice cream equally the same, and while we love that this ice cream brand puts the bare minimum ingredients into its products, we still cannot get behind the 20 grams of added sugar per serving. Also, with 460 calories in a serving, this item is more like a full meal than a dessert.

Peanut butter isn't always the bad guy, though. Check out the 24 Things That Happen to Your Body When You Eat Peanut Butter for more.

20

Trader Joe's Chocolate Salted Caramel Mug Mix

Trader joe's chocolate salted caramel mug

1 mix packet and 2 caramels (96 g): 350 calories, 7 g fat (5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 550 mg sodium, 72 g carbs (4 g fiber, 45 g sugar), 6 g protein

Caramel and chocolate are a dynamite combination, but here in this small dessert, they're so not worth the 43 grams of added sugars.

21

Reese's Ice Cream Cake

rich products ice cream cake

1/9 cake (103 g): 260 calories, 15 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 115 mg sodium, 28 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 24 g sugar), 5 g protein

Rich's debuted this peanut butter and chocolate ice cream cake this year, and while it looks like something we'd want to dip our forks into, we cannot help but feel the need to resist those high saturated fat and sugar contents. While the sugar content of this ice cream treat is nearly the same as that of two Reese's Cups (22 grams in the cups versus 24 grams in this cake), the saturated fat content in the cups is much less at just 4.5 grams. Honestly, it would be better to eat the candy instead.

22

Rice Krispies Cookies 'n Creme Snap Crackle Poppers

rice krispies treats snap crackle poppers

1 pouch (28 g): 130 calories, 5 g fat (3.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 75 mg sodium, 21 g carbs (0 g fiber, 13 g sugar), <1 g protein

We know this name is absolutely adorable, but we don't love that one pack has 13 grams of sugar.

23

Nestlé Toll House Unicorn Cookies

bag of nestle toll house vanilla unicorn swirl baking chips

1 tablespoon: 80 calories, 6 g fat (3.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 0 mg sodium, 9 g carbs (0 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 0 g protein

We are all about the colorful unicorn food trend—remember the unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks? Well, just like the sweet beverage, the sugar content and saturated fat content are just too high for such a small amount of food here, too.

24

Jimmy Dean Bacon Breakfast Bowl

jimmy dean bacon breakfast bowl

1 container (198 g): 400 calories, 25 g fat (10 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,1150 mg sodium, 18 g carbs (2 g fiber, <1 g sugar), 26 g protein

Bacon, eggs, potatoes, and cheddar cheese in one bowl sounds amazing, but this should be a special occasion treat—not a daily morning breakfast. What's a major bummer about this bowl is that it contains a whopping 1,150 milligrams of sodium—that's exactly half of the sodium you should eat in one entire day.

25

Bob Evans Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Burritos

bob evans burrito

1 burrito: 350 calories, 21 g fat (8 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 810 mg sodium, 28 g carbs (1 g fiber, N/A sugar), 13 g protein

Breakfast burritos sound warm and delicious, but chances are you'll probably want more than one, right? If this is the case, you would be out 1,620 milligrams of sodium—which is more than half of what you should eat in a whole day.

26

O That's Good Three Cheese Pasta

o thats good three cheese pasta

1 burrito: 350 calories, 21 g fat (8 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 810 mg sodium, 28 g carbs (1 g fiber, N/A sugar), 13 g protein

Oprah, please don't take this the wrong way, but your three-cheese pasta has 830 milligrams of sodium, which is far too much, especially for something that's less than 300 calories.

27

ThinkThin Chocolate Strawberry Protein Bar

thinkthin chocolate strawberry

1 bar: 240 calories, 9 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 240 mg sodium, 25 g carbs (0 g fiber, 0 sugar), 20 g protein

While we love that this protein bar offers 20 grams of satiating protein, we don't love that there are 22 grams of sugar alcohols. Why? Sugar alcohols can cause bloating, especially in those with IBS. Bloating doesn't sound like something you want, right? Your best bet is to stock up on a better protein bar, like one of these 15 Best Protein Bars, According to Nutritionists.

28

Pillsbury Toaster Glazed Donuts Strudel

pillsbury toaster glazed donuts strudel

1 pastry with icing (55 g): 170 calories, 6 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 170 mg sodium, 27 g carbs (1 g fiber, 10 sugar), 2 g protein

Starting your day off with 10 grams of sugar in this strudel will leave you hungry an hour later. It's best to nix this item and start your day with one of these 24 Healthy Breakfast Recipes instead.

29

Lean Cuisine Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese

lean cuisine mac and cheese

1 package: 250 calories, 6 g fat (4 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 690 mg sodium, 35 g carbs (1 g fiber, 5 sugar), 14 g protein

While the calorie count and saturated fat content aren't of concern here, what could be improved is the sodium content. At nearly 700 milligrams, this is too much for something that's 250 calories.

Campbell's Well Yes! Sipping Soup,Tomato & Sweet Basil

campbells well yes sipping soup

1 container: 150 calories, 5 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 650 mg sodium, 24 g carbs (3 g fiber, 17 sugar), 3 g protein

Campbell's Well Yes! tomato soup packs more than 600 milligrams of sodium into just 150 calories. This sipping soup will have you sipping for water by the end of it. You're better off making a homemade version, like one of these 18 Best-Ever Fat-Burning Soup Recipes.

31

Marie Callender's North Carolina Style Chicken & Grits Bowl

1 container (354 g): 330 calories, 11 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,200 mg sodium, 40 g carbs (5 g fiber, 8 sugar), 18 g protein

While full of satiating protein, this bowl is also filled to the brim with sodium: 1,200 milligrams to be exact. We love a good bowl of grits, but we'll stick to a homemade bowl of them to cut back on the sodium.

Malt O Meal Cold Stone Creamery Cookie Doughn't You Want Some

1 1/4 cup (44 g): 170 calories, 2 g fat (0 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 290 mg sodium, 37 g carbs (1 g fiber, 21 sugar), 1 g protein

This cereal debuted this year, and while it's a fun and novel concept, what's not fun is the 20 grams of added sugar it packs per serving.

33

Pop-Tarts Frosted Strawberry Milkshake

kelloggs pop tarts frosted strawberry milkshake

2 pastries (96 g): 380 calories, 11 g fat (3.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 390 mg sodium, 68 g carbs (1 g fiber, 28 sugar), 3 g protein

Pop-Tarts? More like sugar tarts. Two of the strawberry milkshake version contain nearly 30 grams of sugar. That's more than two Reese's Cups, which have 22 grams of sugar. You'd be better off eating real candy than two of these Pop-Tarts.

34

Blue Bunny Load'd Apple Pie a La Mode

blue bunny loaded apple pie a la mode

1 unit (181 g): 490 calories, 20 g fat (13 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 190 mg sodium, 72 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 60 sugar), 52 g protein

This Sundae certainly is loaded…loaded in sugar! Sixty grams? Come on Blue Bunny, that's not good for anyone to consume in one sitting. Also, need we mention the 13 grams of saturated fat in this ice cream treat? And while you expect ice cream to be packed with the sweet stuff, the 14 Surprising Foods You Never Thought Would Be Packed With Sugar will be even more eye-opening.

35

PF Chang's Pork Shoyu Ramen

pf changs pork shoyu ramen

2/3 cup frozen (184 g): 180 calories, 4 g fat (1 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,140 mg sodium, 23 g carbs (2 g fiber, 2 sugar), 12 g protein

This is a low-calorie meal, so what exactly makes it unhealthy? The sodium content! It has about half your day's worth of sodium in just a single small serving.

36

Quaker Overnight Oats Raisin Walnut & Honey

quaker overnight oats

1 package (74 g): 300 calories, 9 g fat (1 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 150 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (5 g fiber, 16 sugar), 6 g protein

We love overnight oats, but not when they contain 10 grams of added sugars. The second ingredient listed in these oats is sugar. Instead, make your own overnights at home with cinnamon and diced strawberries and blueberries for a natural source of sweetness without the sugar crash.

Special K Sausage, Egg & Cheese Flatbread Breakfast Sandwich

special K flatbread breakfast sandwich

1 sandwich (116 g): 240 calories, 12 g fat (4.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 700 mg sodium, 20 g carbs (3 g fiber, 3 sugar), 14 g protein

As is the case with pre-packaged frozen products, Special K flatbread breakfast sandwiches are high in sodium. For context, you would have to eat about seven of Snyder's pretzel rods to have an equivalent amount of sodium.

38

Noosa Mates Salted Caramel Chocolate

1 container (5.8 oz): 290 calories, 12 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 320 mg sodium, 39 g carbs (1 g fiber, 30 sugar), 8 g protein

With 30 grams of sugar and 6 grams of saturated fat in a yogurt, these numbers make it more of a dessert than a healthy breakfast item. Like all of the meals and snacks on this list, it's OK to have indulgent items every once and a while, but it wouldn't be ideal to eat these daily.

39

M&Ms Hazelnut Spread

1 ounce (28 g) or about 16 pieces: 140 calories, 7 g fat (5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 30 mg sodium, 18 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 16 sugar), 1 g protein

Are M&Ms trying to mimic Nutella with this product? Just one serving of these M&Ms costs you about one-quarter of your day's worth of saturated fat. Is it that worth it?

Pop-Tarts Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cereal

1 cup (41 g): 150 calories, 1 g fat (0 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 180 mg sodium, 35 g carbs (3 g fiber, 15 sugar), 2 g protein

This new cereal has far too much sugar in it for just one cup.

41

Hershey's Cookies N' Creme Fillows

general mills hersheys cookies cream fillows

3/4 cup (52 g): 230 calories, 6 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 210 mg sodium, 39 g carbs (3 g fiber, 19 sugar), 3 g protein

We don't know what a fillow is, but don't even bother finding out—this cereal has almost as much sugar in it per serving as an actual Hershey's chocolate bar, which has 24 grams.

42

Blue Bunny Load'd Sundaes Monster Cookie

blue bunny loaded sundae monster cookie

1 container (182 g): 620 calories, 35 g fat (14 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 330 mg sodium, 70 g carbs (3 g fiber, 57 sugar), 10 g protein

They got the name right with this product: This sundae is truly a monster. With 49 grams added sugar, you may as well just have four tablespoons of sugar.

43

Pepperidge Farm Frozen Apple Turnover

pepperidge farm apple turnover

1 turnover (89 g): 270 calories, 13 g fat (7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 230 mg sodium, 34 g carbs (1 g fiber, 14 sugar), 4 g protein

Apple turnovers are a special occasion treat, but the saturated fat content in this pastry is a bit high to justify, as is the sugar content.

44

Trader Joe's Vegan Banana Bread

Trader joe's vegan banana bread

Per serving: 210 calories, 9 g fat (0.5 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 125 mg sodium, 30 g carbs (1 g fiber, 17 sugar), 2 g protein

Here's what we like about this bread—it's actually pretty low in sodium. However, it is high in sugar, which makes this an automatic no-go for us. Sorry Trader Joe's, we still love you for your healthier options. Just be sure to avoid these 25 Grocery Store Mistakes Making You Gain Weight.

45

Ben & Jerry's Justice ReMix'd

ben and jerrys justice remixed

2/3 cup (137 g): 340 calories, 18 g fat (11 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 115 mg sodium, 40 g carbs (1 g fiber, 33 g sugar), 6 g protein

While we love that this ice cream advocates for a good cause, we aren't too pleased with the fact that it contains trans fat and 28 grams of added sugars.

46

Twix Dark Chocolate Cookie Bar Singles

twix dark chocolate cookie bar

Per 2 cookies: 250 calories, 12 g fat (7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 95 mg sodium, 34 g carbs (1 g fiber, 23 sugar), 2 g protein

Twix has a dark chocolate cookie candy bar now, and while we usually always say you should swap milk chocolate for dark chocolate, this is an exception because the candy bar is still high in saturated fat and sugar. Instead, opt for two squares of a 72 percent and above dark chocolate bar! You'll dodge the added sugars and some saturated fat by avoiding the Twix.

Reese's Crunchy Cookie Peanut Butter Cups

1 package (39 g): 200 calories, 11 g fat 4.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 125 mg sodium, 24 g carbs (1 g fiber, 21 sugar), 4 g protein

Similar to all of the candies on this list, the issue at hand here is the sugar content.

48

PowerBar Protein Plus Reduced Sugar Lemon Poppy Seed

powerbar protein plus reduced sugar

1 bar (60 g): 200 calories, 7 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 130 mg sodium, 25 g carbs (5 g fiber, 3 sugar), 20 g protein

Our complaint with this protein bar is that it contains 17 grams of sugar alcohols, which can cause bloating and other GI distress-induced problems.

49

Marie Callender's Spaghetti With Meat Sauce

1 container (377 g): 350 calories, 7 g fat (2 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 920 mg sodium, 54 g carbs (6 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 17 g protein

This single meal contains almost 1,000 milligrams of sodium, and it's not even 400 calories. You're better off making your own easy pasta and red sauce at home yourself. And in case you wanted to make your own, here's How to Make Homemade Red Sauce For the Entire Year.

Lean Cuisine Chicken Teriyaki

1 container: 310 calories, 5 g fat (1 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 680 mg sodium, 47 g carbs (4 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 20 g protein

It may only have one gram of saturated fat, but this frozen meal has 680 milligrams of sodium in a small 310-calorie meal, which is why it made the naughty list.

When you're dining out, you aren't in control of what ingredients are being used for the meals you end up ordering, so if you want to eat healthier, it can be helpful to know which meals you should absolutely skip at your favorite restaurants. Here, we've rounded up what are by far the most unhealthy foods you'll find at popular chains.

Taco Bell Toasted Cheddar Chalupa

1 chalupa: 450 calories, 30 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 550 mg sodium, 29 g carbs (4 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 16 g protein

With 30 grams of fat and half a gram of trans fat, you're going to want to avoid ordering one of these during your next Taco Bell trip. And while the star of this meal is the cheddar cheese, you're much better off eating some real cheese by itself rather than the smothered kind in this grease trap.

52

Boston Market Sesame Rotisserie Chicken, Half

1 meal: 630 calories, 30 g fat (8 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,620 mg sodium, 18 g carbs (0 g fiber, 0 g sugar), 70 g protein

That sodium count is enough to make you do a double-take. Sesame chicken is often not the healthiest way to eat poultry, and this Boston Market dish proves just that.

53

The J.J. Gargantuan

1 large sandwich on a 16" 9-grain baguette: 2,450 calories, 135 g fat (32 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 7,450 mg sodium, 152 g carbs (13 g fiber, 29 g sugar), 166 g protein

Everything about this massive Jimmy John's sandwich is scary. It is made up of layers of salami, capicola, turkey, roast beef, ham, and provolone. In case you were wondering, yes, that is far too many processed meats and cheeses. If you're ordering a sandwich this big, be sure to share this with many friends.

54

Carrabba's Cannoli Cake

Tara M./Yelp
1 slice: 1,440 calories, 154 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 720 mg sodium, 181 g carbs (5 g fiber, 128 g sugar), 19 g protein

Many of us like to believe the motto "there is always room for dessert." However, in this instance, you're going to want to pass on a slice of this cake. Trans fat is always a no-go in our book, and one piece of this cake has 1.5 grams. Plus, you'll be eating this after your meal, so think about all the calories just one dinner will add to the addition of the 1,440 calories in this cake. And with 128 grams of sugar? No, thanks!

Chili's Crispy Honey Chipotle & Waffles

1 meal: 2,600 calories, 125 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 4,730 mg sodium, 306 g carbs (13 g fiber, 123 g sugar), 64 g protein

The amount of sodium in this dish is enough to make you stay far away, along with the trans fat. But what's more surprising is the extremely high sugar count, at 123 grams. And this is at dinner! Yikes.

56

Carrabba's Fettuccine Weesie With Whole Grain Spaghetti

Courtesy of Carrabba's
1 meal: 1,410 calories, 88 g fat (54 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 3,510 mg sodium, 103 g carbs (18 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 54 g protein

You might see the whole-grain spaghetti, shrimp, and mushrooms and think this dish is a healthy option, but think again. The creamy sauce is the sneaky culprit here, and this meal packs in more than 3,500 milligrams of sodium, which is more than the daily recommended amount for the whole day.

57

Chili's Ultimate Smokehouse Combo: Jalapeno-Cheddar Smoked Sausage, Ribs (Dry Rub), Crispers Honey Chipotle with Ranch

1 meal: 2,865 calories, 184 g fat (50 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat), 7,820 mg sodium, 188 g carbs (15 g fiber, 53 g sugar), 114 g protein

This nutritional information also includes sides of chile-garlic toast, garlic dill pickles, homestyle fries, and roasted street corn. This one meal would set you back nearly three times your daily amount of sodium and double the amount of total fat if you ate the whole thing.

58

Ruby Tuesday Crispy Chicken Mac 'n Cheese

1 meal: 1,411 calories, 73 g fat (38 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 3,752 mg sodium, 107 g carbs (4 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 73 g protein

Mac and cheese is already an indulgent meal choice, but adding in crispy chicken takes this dish over the edge. Crispy is simply another way of saying fried, and with more than 3,700 milligrams of sodium and a high fat and saturated fat content, it's easy to see why you should skip this meal.

59

Cheesecake Factory Nachos with Spicy Chicken

1 meal: 2,950 calories, 210 g fat (85 g saturated fat, 6 g trans fat), 3,160 mg sodium, 180 g carbs (23 g fiber, 28 g sugar), 88 g protein

This dish is meant to serve two to four people, but something like nachos is an easy meal to just eat all by yourself, too. Even if a few people share these nachos, coming in at nearly 3,000 calories, more than 200 grams of fat, and 6 grams of trans fat, this isn't something you want to be eating along with a main course and possibly a dessert.

Red Lobster Admiral Feast

1 meal: 1,650 calories, 98 g fat (10 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat), 5,000 mg sodium, 129 g carbs (9 g fiber, 18 g sugar), 64 g protein

If you order this dish at Red Lobster, you're in for a plate of deep-fried shrimp, bay scallops, clam strips, and flounder. When in doubt, grilled is always a better option, as 5,000 milligrams of sodium is more than two times the daily recommended maximum intake.

61

Chili's Beef Bacon Ranch Quesadillas

Courtesy of Chili's Grill & Bar Restaurant
1 meal: 1,830 calories, 137 g fat (46 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 4,000 mg sodium, 69 g carbs (4 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 82 g protein

If you end up ordering this while dining at Chili's, be sure to split with a ton of friends, as the calorie, fat, and saturated fat counts are simply way too high for one person to be eating at one meal. And don't even get us started on how much of a sodium trap this dish is, too.

62

IHOP Peach Vanilla Stuffed French Toast

Ethan H./Yelp
1 meal: 1,080 calories, 42 g fat (22.5 g saturated fat), 810 mg sodium, 159 g carbs (7 g fiber, 89 g sugar), 17 g protein

Anytime you see the word "stuffed," you know that's going to mean stuffed with more calories, fat, and sugar, and that's exactly what you'll get from this IHOP French toast.

63

Denny's Salted Caramel & Banana Cream Pancake Breakfast

(Served with 2 bacon strips, 2 scrambled eggs, hash browns): 1,630 calories, 64 g fat (26 g saturated fat), 3,010 mg sodium, 224 g carbs (7 g fiber, 117 g sugar), 45 g protein

These pancakes from Denny's have more than 100 grams of sugar, and in addition to the carb-heavy stack, this meal comes with bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns. Consuming this much fat, sodium, carbs, and sugar first-thing in the morning isn't ideal in one sitting, let alone at breakfast. You'll be in a carb coma and have a sugar rush in no time. That doesn't sound like how you want to start your day, does it?

64

Perkin's Strawberry Croissant French Toast Platter

1 meal (Served with 2 bacon strips, 2 scrambled eggs, hash browns): 1,630 calories, 64 g fat (26 g saturated fat), 3,010 mg sodium, 224 g carbs (7 g fiber, 117 g sugar), 45 g protein

Here, a croissant is taken to the next level when it's dipped in batter, grilled, and then loaded with sweet glazed strawberries and Bavarian cream. And then it's served with bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns for a total meal that clocks in with more than 3,000 milligrams of sodium and more than 100 grams of sugar. The numbers behind this dessert aren't so sweet. Why not trying to make your own dessert at home instead? Here are 28 Healthy Homemade Desserts That Are Also Super Easy to Make.

Chili's TX Cheese Fries, Full Order

1 meal: 1,860 calories, 127 g fat (58 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 3,880 mg sodium, 97 g carbs (8 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 81 g protein

French fries are obviously a salty side dish everyone loves to treat themselves to every once and a while, but these cheese fries take that concept a bit too far. There's almost a day's worth of calories in these fries alone.

66

Cheesecake Factory Burrito Grande

Bonnie C./Yelp
Nutrition: 1,870 calories, 98 g fat (43 g saturated fat; 2.5 trans fat), 4,210 mg sodium, 159 g carbs (24 g fiber, 22 sugar), 94 g protein

This burrito lives up to its name, as it's, well, very large. Coming in at more than 4,200 milligrams of sodium and 159 grams of carbs, it's far too much food for one person to eat at one time. Plus, the sodium is almost double the maximum amount you should eat in one day.

67

Pei Wei Asian Diner Chicken Pad Thai

D G./Yelp
Nutrition: 1,470 calories, 42 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 4,730 mg sodium, 167 g carbs (14 g fiber, 52 g sugar), 84 g protein

Yes, there are some veggies in this chicken dish, but it's still unhealthy. The chicken, veggies, and noodles are tossed in a salty sauce, all totaling more than 4,700 milligrams of sodium, which is more than two day's worth of sodium in a single meal.

68

Dave & Buster's Chicken & Waffle Slider

Kadriana J./Yelp
1 meal: 2,342 calories, 127 g fat (38 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 3,420 mg sodium, 219 g carbs (11 g fiber, 98 g sugar), 78 g protein

Chicken and waffles might be a truly delicious pairing, but together, it's a dangerous duo for your waistline, and these sliders are all the proof you need. Between the calories, fat, sodium, and sugar counts, you're not going to want to play any games at Dave & Buster's once you eat this meal.

69

Sonic Oreo Peanut Butter Master Shake

1 large shake: 1,720 calories, 104 g fat (48 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,040 mg sodium, 172 g carbs (4 g fiber, 111 g sugar), 30 g protein

Chocolate and peanut butter is another oh so yummy pairing, but that doesn't mean it's good for you. This Sonic shake packs 111 grams of sugar into one drink and consuming that in one dessert shake while most likely munching on a burger and fries really adds up.

KFC Nashville Hot Chicken and Waffle Sandwich

1 meal: 1,010 calories, 61 g fat (16 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,510 mg sodium, 83 g carbs (0 g fiber, 21 g sugar), 33 g protein

Chicken and waffles strike again, this time at KFC, still proving it's a highly caloric sodium and sugar-filled dish no matter where you go. No, thanks!

71

Wendy's Birthday Cake Frosty

1 large: 580 calories, 13 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 240 mg sodium, 102 g carbs (0 g fiber, 88 g sugar), 14 g protein

A Wendy's Frosty is often thought of as a nostalgic treat, but this new version celebrating the fast-food chain's birthday is truly a sugar bomb in a tiny bowl.

72

Starbuck's Caramel Brulee Latte

Courtesy of Starbucks
1 Grande drink: 450 calories, 13 g fat (8 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 270 mg sodium, 70 g carbs (0 g fiber, 47 g sugar), 13 g protein

One medium-sized order of this Starbucks holiday latte has 70 carbs and 47 grams of sugar. You're better off making your own creme brulee and eating that instead of sipping on this drink.

73

Arby's Garlic Butter Steak Sandwich

Courtesy of Arby's
1 meal: 520 calories, 24 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,760 mg sodium, 42 g carbs (2 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 33 g protein

Steak and bacon come together on a ciabatta roll that is all finished off in a roasted garlic butter. You know from the sound of it that these two meats in a rich butter sauce isn't going to do your waistline any favors.

74

Arby's Steak & Bacon Melt Sandwich

Courtesy of Arby's
1 meal: 640 calories, 32 g fat (10 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,020 mg sodium, 48 g carbs (2 g fiber, 5 g sugar), 38 g protein

Steak, bacon, melted cheese, onion, and ranch are what you're going to taste taking a bite of this sandwich. However, along with all these flavors comes almost a day's worth of sodium and 10 grams of saturated fat. Skip this one, along with The Unhealthiest Fast Food Sandwiches in America.

75

Burger King Double Pretzel Bacon King

1 meal: 1,240 calories, 84 g fat (31 g saturated fat, 3.5 g trans fat), 2,350 mg sodium, 57 g carbs (2 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 63 g protein

Perhaps this is a perfect example of how pretzels and burgers simply shouldn't go together. With more than three grams of trans fat, it's best to stay away from this when you're rolling by the drive-thru.

76

Denny's Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Courtesy of Dennys
1 meal: 1,350 calories, 34 g fat (16 g saturated fat), 1,760 mg sodium, 247 g carbs (4 g fiber, 184 g sugar), 10 g protein

If you're indulging in pancakes that have more than 1,700 milligrams of sodium and 184 grams of sugar, we hope you're sharing with a lot of friends and you're only taking a few bites. If that's not the case, it's best to skip this highly sweetened breakfast.

77

Captain D's Family Seafood Feast

1 meal: 3,870 calories, 262 g fat (125 g saturated fat, 16 g trans fat), 7,990 mg sodium, 211 g carbs (2 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 150 g protein

At almost 4,000 calories, 16 grams of trans fat, and almost four day's worth of sodium, this dish will always be one to skip. All of the seafood here is fried, which is why these numbers are out of control. Even the veggies can't save this meal.

78

KFC Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits

1 serving: 290 calories, 13 g fat (7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 580 mg sodium, 40 g carbs (2 g fiber, 17 g sugar), 4 g protein

These little sweet bites you can get at KFC can quickly add on extra sodium and sugar to your entire meal, and because they're small, it's so easy to eat a few at a time. Who could stick to just one?

79

Arby's S'Mores Shake

1 large shake: 1,120 calories, 33 g fat (21 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat), 660 mg sodium, 183 g carbs (1 g fiber, 161 g sugar), 25 g protein

Everything about this shake is over the top, from the amount of calories, fat, saturated fat, sodium, carbs, and, of course, sugar. You'd be better off eating multiple s'mores than drinking this s'mores shake.

Coffee Mate Red Velvet Creamer

1 serving: 35 calories, 1.5 g fat (0 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 5 mg sodium, (1 g fiber, 5 g sugar), 0 g protein

While this creamer might look innocent, pouring 35 extra calories into your coffee isn't ideal. Plus, the ingredients list is filled with plenty of additives. Go with some real sugar if you need a little sweetness!

81

Pizza Hut Pizza Cheez-it Pepperoni Pizza Squares

Courtesy of Pizza Hut
1 serving: 240 calories, 15 g fat (8 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 430 mg sodium, 16 g carbs (1 g fiber, 1 g sugar), 9 g protein

The classic snack Cheez-It came together with Pizza Hut to create these bite-sized treats, and just like the real Cheez-Its, it's easy to eat more than one! Resist ending up indulging in a fat- and sodium-heavy appetizer, and instead, just eat a slice of pizza. Isn't that why you're at Pizza Hut anyway?

82

Cold Stone Reese's Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup

Courtesy of Cold Stone
1 cup: 330 calories, 26 g fat (8 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 190 mg sodium, 20 g carbs (2 g fiber, 16 g sugar), 8 g protein

Cold Stone and Reese's joining forces for a frozen dessert sounds like a great combination. However,  while it may taste amazing, a single little treat has 26 grams of fat and 16 grams of sugar, which is a lot for just one cup.

83

Wendy's Grilled Avocado BLT Chicken Sandwich

Courtesy of Wendy's
1 meal: 600 calories, 31 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,250 mg sodium, 36 g carbs (1 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 45 g protein

Grilled chicken sandwiches are usually the better choice when you're dining at a fast-food restaurant, but here, that's not the case. Wendy's had a BLT and chicken come together for a sandwich that is high in calories, fat, and sodium, and there's too much protein to be consumed in one meal.

84

Denny's Banana Chocolate Hazelnut Crepe Breakfast

Courtesy of Denny's
1 meal: 1,080 calories, 73 g fat (20 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,440 mg sodium, 85 g carbs 61 g fiber, 35 g sugar), 25 g protein

This crepe is more dessert than breakfast as it's made with vanilla ice cream and a chocolate hazelnut spread. Served alongside eggs, hashbrowns, and your selection of meat, it's no wonder this meal is high in just about everything.

85

Wendy's Spicy Chicken Nuggets

For a 10-piece order: 470 calories, 31 g fat (7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,190 mg sodium, 22 g carbs (2 g fiber, 0 g sugar), 26 g protein

Now, 10 chicken nuggets may seem like a lot, but it's not hard to down these. With more than 1,000 milligrams of sodium, that's almost more than half of your maximum amount of sodium in one day. Plus, you're most likely eating these with some fries on the side, another salty culprit.

1 meal: 1,220 calories, 240 g fat (12 g saturated fat), 2,090 mg sodium, 228 g carbs (4 g fiber, 154 g sugar), 13 g protein

The concept of dessert pancakes is tricky, as this is by far not healthy to eat in the morning or after dinner. And with 154 grams of sugar, it's simply never a good time of day to eat these.

87

Applebee's Sizzlin' Cheddar & Bacon Skillet

Courtesy of Applebee's
1 meal: 1,040 calories, 67 g fat (33 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,640 mg sodium, 47 g carbs (6 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 67 g protein

A meal with this much fat and saturated fat is alarming, and when you add in the more than 2,600 milligrams of sodium and 67 grams of protein, this skillet quickly becomes one to avoid at Applebee's.

88

UNO Chicago Meat Market Pizza

Uno Chicago Grill
1 slice: 680 calories, 42 g fat (11 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,490 mg sodium, 35 g carbs (2 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 26 g protein

Pizza that is topped with meat is already higher in fat and sodium, but UNO takes their meat lover's pizza to a whole other level. Keep in mind the nutrition information here is only for one slide, too! The bottom line is it's best to just skip this pie.

89

Applebee's Loaded Chicken & Shrimp Fajita

1 meal: 1,480 calories, 76 g fat (30 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat), 4,840 mg sodium, 131 g carbs (13 g fiber, 17 g sugar), 67 g protein

A fajita with nearly 5,000 milligrams of sodium and 30 grams of saturated fat? That sizzlin' meal can stay in the kitchen.

90

Outback's Bloomin Onion

1 meal: 1,950 calories, 155 g fat (56 g saturated fat, 7 g trans fat), 3,850 mg sodium, 123 g carbs (14 g fiber, 18 g sugar), 18 g protein

The Bloomin' Onion is a classic appetizer choice at Outback Steakhouse, but it's one loaded in fat and sodium and seven grams of trans fat.

91

Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad

1 meal: 1,600 calories, 104 g fat (17 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 620 mg sodium, 33 g carbs (3 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 15 g protein

This is a prime example of how not every salad is healthy for you—104 grams of fat is just astronomical in a single salad. Need more proof? Here are 25 Unhealthiest Restaurant Salads in America.

92

TGI Friday's Chicken Parmesan Pasta

1 meal: 1,800 calories, 106 g fat (43 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 4,060 mg sodium, 137 g carbs (8 g fiber, 22 g sugar), 70 g protein

Anytime there is trans fat in a meal, you want to be wary, but this pasta dish also contains high amounts of fat, saturated fat, and sodium. This might just be one of the scariest chicken parm pasta dishes ever!

93

Pizza Hut Meaty P'zone Pizza

1/2 order: 550 calories, 23 g fat (10 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 1,370 mg sodium, 61 g carbs (2 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 24 g protein

Keep in mind that the numbers you're seeing here are just for a half order. And these slices are small, so it's easy to eat a whole one.

94

Papa John's Pepperoni, Sausage, and Six Cheese Pizza

1 slice: 390 calories, 20 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 920 mg sodium, 36 g carbs (1 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 16 g protein

The six-cheese blend is most likely what ups the fat and saturated fat in this pie. Combined with the pepperoni and sausage, it's best to pass on this one on the Papa John's menu.

One slice of this Mellow Mushroom pizza comes in at 1,610 milligrams of sodium, which is as much as you would get in about 17 Snyder's Pretzel Rods.

96

Little Caesars' DEEP!DEEP! Dish 3 Meat Treat Pizza

Courtesy of Little Caesars
1 slice: 421 calories, 21 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0.4 g trans fat), 874 mg sodium, 40 g carbs (2 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 19 g protein

This thick crust pizza pie is stacked high with three kinds of meat: pepperoni, Italian sausage, and bacon. One slice packs one gram more of saturated fat than what one Hershey's chocolate bar (43 grams) contains. At least with the chocolate bar you're eating about 200 less calories.

97

Burger King Double CROISSAN'WICH with Sausage

1 sandwich: 300 calories, 15 g fat (7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 580 mg sodium, 30 g carbs (1 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 11 g protein

Choosing this breakfast sandwich isn't really the best way to start your day. That's a lot of sodium and fat to have in the morning in just one meal.

98

Mellow Mushroom's Mighty Meaty Pizza

1 slice in large pizza: 520 calories, 26 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,340 mg sodium, 46 g carbs (2 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 30 g protein

Mellow Mushroom's Mighty Meaty pizza features pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, ham, and bacon. That's a lot of meat on each slice, so it's no surprise each slice clocks in at more than 500 calories and well over 1,000 milligrams of sodium. Having two slices will get you to more than your day's maximum sodium intake—and that's without any of your other food from the day factored in!

99

Krispy Kreme Dark Chocolate OREO KREME™ Donut

1 donut: 390 calories, 21 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 180 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (1 g fiber, 27 g sugar), 4 g protein

Yes, a donut is a sweet treat, but with 27 grams of sugar, it's best to pass on this one.

1 slice: 1,260 calories, 83 g fat (47 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 510 mg sodium, 109 g carbs (1 g fiber, 99 g sugar), 10 g protein
