Want 1,464 Calories (Fries) with That?

From Yahoo Health: America’s Worst French Fries. The authors of the best-selling weight-loss series Eat This, Not That! and Cook This, Not That! have rounded up three of the worst orders of fries available at chain restaurants across the country.

I’m not a fan of any of these restaurants but what hooked me into this article is the calories per serving. It’s not really news that fast food is high in sodium and fat, but it still blows me away to see the stats. For example:

From Arby’s:

Arby’s Curly Fries (Large)
640 calories
34 g fat (5 g saturated, 0 g trans)
1,460 mg sodium

From Jack in the Box:

Jack in the Box Bacon Cheddar Wedges
715 calories
45 g fat (13 g saturated, 1 g trans)
905 mg sodium

From Dairy Queen:

Dairy Queen Chili Cheese Fries
1,240 calories
71 g fat (28 g saturated, 0.5 g trans)
2,550 milligrams sodium

From Five Guys:

Five Guys Fries (large)
1,464 calories
71 g fat (14 g saturated)
213 mg sodium

From Chili’s:

Chili’s Texas Cheese Fries w/Jalapeno Ranch
1,920 calories
147 g fat (63 g saturated)
3,580 mg sodium

Makes you want to run out and eat fries, doesn’t it? And that’s just the side dish!
