Now that the New Year has started, many people will want to stick to their resolutions, such as losing weight or eating healthily.
But although some fast food items are healthy, it’s very easy to go wrong with fast food and have a few meals undermine your resolutions.
We looked at nutritional data from restaurant chains to find the worst of the worst. Over time, some nutritional data may change slightly — but these items are still high in calories.
Find out which items have the most calories, fat, saturated fat, sodium, and cholesterol.
You’ll want to steer clear of them if you’re watching your waistline.
Here are the offenders, in order of least to most calories.
Fat: 54 g
Saturated Fat: 20 g
Sodium: 1,850 mg
Cholesterol: 385 mg
While this breakfast platter may not veer as closely to 1,000 calories as some other breakfast platters, it is still way too many calories. This meal contains roughly the recommended amount of daily fat intake, and it's just breakfast! Fortunately, there are less caloric options on Chick-Fil-A's menu.
Fat: 56 g
Saturated Fat: 23 g
Sodium: 1,895 mg
Cholesterol: 195 mg
Shake Shack burgers are delicious, but they can be pretty caloric. Adding a second patty will cost you more than 250 calories. Nixing the bacon on a SmokeShack burger for a double Shack Burger (pictured right) can also save you a few calories. This calorie count doesn't even include fries, custard, or a soda.
Fat: 48 g
Saturated Fat: 18 g
Sodium: 2,980 mg
Cholesterol: 100 mg
Subway advertises that it is a healthy choice for fast food, but this 12-inch sandwich has close to 1,000 calories. Subway offers the nutritional data for only the 6-inch sub, so if you're extra hungry, you might want to do the calorie maths first.
Calories: Approximately 910
Fat: Approximately 49 g
Saturated Fat: 16.5
Sodium: 1990 mg
Cholesterol: 375 mg
Take the already-610-calorie Cobb salad, and make it a salad sandwich with 300-calorie bread (although Chop't says that salad sandwiches have half the lettuce and half the dressing than their salad counterparts, which will likely help scrape a few calories off of the total). A 'healthy meal' is now nearly 1,000 calories! Who knew you could get a meal at McDonald's for less calories than at Chop't?
Fat: 68 g
Saturated Fat: 23.5 g
Sodium: 3,020 mg
Cholesterol: 135 mg
This is what happens if you add up the the nutritional data for a burrito with carnitas, white rice, black beans, lettuce, cheese, fajita vegetables, corn salsa, tomato salsa, sour cream, cheese, and guacamole.
There might not be any trans fat in this meal, but it's still a lot of calories and fat -- and that's without chips!
