are you hungry???

They say that fast food kills.

I guess you'd rather die from food than a bullet, right? I'm not gonna say that I eat healthy every day. I try to balance what I eat. I mean...I enjoy a good burger as much as the next guy but I don't over do it.

Recently, The New York Daily News published an article about some of the most unhealthy foods. I thought I'd share a few of them that made the list...

Meet Denny's new Fried Cheese Melt, which is basically fried cheese encased in more fried cheese, wrapped in fried bread. For just $4, you can risk your life by consuming, 'four fried mozzarella sticks and melted American cheese grilled between two slices of sourdough bread. It is served with French fries and a side of marinara sauce.' Yeah, because who doesn't need fried carbs on the side of fried carbs.

The much-hyped lasagna sandwich, considered the first of its kind, is making (big) waves. The extravaganza, which has the same amount of fat as two McDonald’s cheeseburgers, consists of 'two thick slices of bread and a filling of diced beef in a tomato and herb sauce layered with cooked pasta sheets and a creamy cheddar, ricotta and mayonnaise dressing,' according to the Daily Mail.

If a chili dog is too boring for you, meet the Hamdog. It's a hot dog encased in a beef patty that's been deep-fried and drowned in chili, cheese and onions. It's topped with a fried egg and served on a hoagy bun with a side of French fries. Eat one, if you dare, at Mulligan's in Atlanta.

This KFC sandwich is a heart-stopping creation that layers two kinds of cheese with bacon and oozes 'Colonel’s sauce.' The twist? Instead of bread, two deep-fried chicken breasts round out the calorific concoction.

Everyone knows that a bacon cheeseburger is terrible for you - but sandwich one between a split, grilled Krispy Kreme donut, and you'd better have a set of defibrillator paddles handy. Called the "Craz-E-Burger," this 1,500-calorie burger was offered, amusingly, just outside the West Springfield, Mass., agricultural fair's 'Better Living Center.'

If you don't want to skimp on the most important meal of the day, stuff yourself with Carl's 830-calorie Breakfast Burger. It's 'a charbroiled all-beef patty, fried egg, crisp bacon, American cheese, hash brown nuggets and ketchup on a sesame seed bun.'

Throw in a side of Poutine, a Canadian staple consisting of French fries topped with cheese curd and slathered with brown gravy.

Fried mac-and-cheese. According to the recipe by the Food Network's Paula Deen, it's a square of macaroni-and-cheese wrapped in bacon, dredged in flour and egg, and coated with bread crumbs that is then fried in oil - peanut, of course, to be healthy.

Deep-fried Oreos are the standard-bearers, found at fairs and at confectioners across this great, fat land

One Arizona restaurant makes no beef about the healthiness of its burgers. The Heart Attack Grill menu boasts the Triple and Quadruple Bypass Burger, three or four beef patties stacked and covered with cheese and the usual trimmings. If you're over 350 pounds, they'll even let you eat for free. It doesn't seem like a sound business strategy, but neither does killing off your customer base.

Fatties everywhere, salute! Hardee's rolled out its Monster Thickburger at the precise time that other fast-food joints were unveiling healthier options, like salads and fruit cups. This 1,420-calorie monstrosity is 1/3 of a pound of angus beef, four slices of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered bun. The company's CEO wasn't kidding when he said, this is 'not a burger for tree-huggers.'

If you thought tuna salad was for dieters, think again. The Quiznos large tuna melt maintains the dubious distinction of being the sandwich chain's unhealthiest sandwich, with 2,000 calories and 175 grams of fat. Catch one, if you can.

Are you still hungry??????

Most of this looks like a heart-attack but I'm definitely a burger person...mmnn don't even say it. So except for like the 12" tall burgers I'd down a burger like nothing, but all that other stuff. I'd never touch. I eat really clean. If you opened my fridge sadly, you'd probably think I was some skinny white girl.

Another thing I do like is Tuna (not canned, I don't do canned goods), I can't believe that sub was like 2000 calories. Like so is that all you're suppose to eat that day or what?

Ewwww! None of that even looks appetizing! A burger made with DONUTS?! Are they mad? I have no words...

Compared to this stuff my junk food is healthy!

WTH is "cheese curd'?!?!?! Wait...I don't want to know. There is a restaurant in the A that grinds up a Krispy Kreme donut in a milkshake. My peeps swear by those things, I think it's a heart attack waiting to happen.

Amazing what people will eat. WOW!

Wow!... As a Canadian I'm only going to claim the poutine. They tend to go over board with the gravy though.. once in a blue moon with a lil gravy...
