While many fast casual restaurants have healthy options on the menu, most of them have quite a few gut busters that we know aren’t good for us, but we also know they’ll taste darn yummy. Well, a new report has come out revealing the worst of the worst out there and you may want to be aware for the next time you go out to dinner.
“Winners” of the 2018 Extreme Eating Awards were just announced by Center for Science in the Public Interest, featuring dishes from restaurants like Cheesecake Factory, Chili’s, Uno Pizzeria & Grill and Shake Shack. One of the worst dishes to earn an honor is the Cheesecake Factory Breakfast Burrito, which was named the “Worst Way To Start The Day,” thanks to its 2,730 calories, 73 grams of saturated fat and 4,630 milligrams of sodium. Another Cheesecake Factory dish making the list is the Chicken Parmesan Pizza Style, a serving of angel hair Alfredo, served atop the almost 10-inch pie, that clocks in at 1,870 calories, 55 grams of saturated fat and 3,080 milligrams of sodium.
