A Calorie Counter blog has gone to the trouble of compiling the absolute worst fast foods from all American chain restaurants. The author looked through every single item offered at every single restaurant from McDonald’s to White Castle to Burger King to Taco Bell to KFC to Wendy’s – whew!
Why 88, you ask? Why not! Though there are hundreds more health offenders, these 88 were determined to be the worst foods based upon their trans fat content. The vegans over at Taste Better were horrified to learn that onion rings serve up nearly 30 grams of trans fat (daily recommended allowance: zero). But meatasauruses don’t get off so easily: fish is next on the list of dangerous, deadly fat portions. It’s not a good day for fast food in the blogosphere, but it’s a really bad day for White Castle (both the onion rings and fish are from this trans fat triumph of a food chain).
