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.'
