On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing the 7 worst fast food meals from some of the most popular fast food restaurants.
It’s no secret, we all know fast food restaurants are no place to live lean. Although some are providing “healthier” options, there are still some gut exploding meal options that I wouldn’t recommend ANYONE eating.
I went to the nutrition info section of each of these 7 popular fast food restaurants and picked out the worst options based on what everyday people may choose to eat. In other words, a typical main item, a side, and a drink.
If you want to know more about the BEST options at these fast restaurants, I did videos for that over a year ago:
In order of calories…
Large BLT, XL Candy Cane Hot Chocolate, Blueberry Fritter
Footlong Spicy Italian, 2 M&M Cookies, 21 oz Coke
Calories: 1640 calories
Spicy Chicken Sandwich Deluxe, Large Waffle Potato Fries, Large Peach Milkshake
Angus Deluxe Bacon & Cheese Sandwich, Large Fries, Large McCafe Vanilla Chai Tea Iced Frappe with Whipped Cream
Steak Fajita (white rice, pinto beans, fajita veggies, corn salsa, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, lettuce), Chips, 21 oz Coke
Chicken Pot Pie, Side Potato Wedges with Creamy Ranch Dipping Sauce, 64 oz Tropicana Twister Orange
3/4 lbs Triple W Hamburger, Poutine (fries/cheese/gravy), Large Caramel Frosty Shake
In the comments below, tell me, have any of you ever ordered these items if not, what’s your favorite fast food restaurant. don’t be shy.
Bottom line. Depending on your body type, in just one of these meals it could be over double the number of calories you need per day. Low quality fake ingredients, lots of calories, bad types of fat, loads of sugary carbohydrates with little fiber, low quality protein, and a heck of a lot of sodium.
Stay away from these options unless you’re training for sumo wrestling.
As always, the best option is to control the ingredients going into your food by cooking for yourself, and taking leftovers with you to eat throughout the day.
