If you take good care of your health, you'll probably know that fast food really isn’t the best choice. There have been plenty of movies and books based on the unhealthy nature of fast food, yet it continues to sell in high numbers thanks to clever advertising and sheer convenience - not to mention it's ever-cheaper prices.
But exactly which items are the worst fast food choices in terms of health and nutrition? Here are the five worst fast food choices you can make.
Number one is the Baconator Triple from Wendys. Even simply looking at this sandwich feels unhealthy. This is the #1 worst fast food choice for many reasons, including the fact that it is made from three ¼ pound patties and then covered in bacon, mayo, and cheese. It's enough to make your arteries hurt just thinking about it. With 1330 calories and 3150 mg of sodium, it is certainly best avoided.
Next is Sonic's Supersonic Cheeseburger, which comes in at 980 calories and 1430 mg of sodium. The burger includes 2 huge patties as well as abundant mayo and cheese.
The BK Quad Stacker from Burger King is another of the worst fast food choices, offering a disturbing four beef patties, four slices of cheese, bacon, and 1740 MG of sodium as well as 930 calories. This thing could sink a battleship - do your health a favor and keep it out of your belly!
While it may not sound unhealthy, Dominos Bread Bowl Pasta is also on the list. With 670 calories, 22 G of saturated fat, and 1780 mg of sodium, this is certainly one of the worst fast food choices you can make without eating pure lard.
Last is the KFC Double Down. This sandwich even looks like one of the worst fast food choices you can make. The sandwich consists of cheese, bacon, and sauce sandwiched between two pieces of fried chicken and offers 32 grams of fat and 1,430 mg of sodium as well as 540 calories. Best avoided if you ever want to see your toes again.
