The Worst Food in America – Healthwise

Passing through some of the bigger cities in the US, one cannot help noticing the number of grossly obese urbanites, so it was quite interesting watching what they consume in restaurants and eateries.

Most of the food-chains are recognised worldwide and the items similar except the portions larger with liberal amounts of fats,oil and creams added on, thus ballooning up the calories consumed. It seems that the US fast-food industry has declared war on expanding the waistlines – the weapons of mass inflation!

My vote for the most lethal weapon goes to:


Outback Steakhouse - Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing

Take a look at what it contains, according to Men’s Health :

2,900 calories
182 g fat
240 g carbs

Assuming you’re an adult male that requires 2,500 calories daily, having this dish alone would have given you your daily calorie requirements already, not to mention loads of cholesterol!

  1. The amusement of it all is that while we see such meals in places beyond America which are in lesser amountsl, but Australia is still the most obese nation yes?

    Yesterday was Australia Day and the amount of BBQ pits I saw outthere was amazing. People eating left, right and centre. While many Australians are watching their weight and/or figure, it is still within the Australian ‘culture’ that they have created for themselves to GORGE, just like alcohol is taken excessively.

    The way the government is trying to curb underage drinking is very drastic from alcopop tax to hiked-up prices. Advertisements such as the “Don’t turn a night out into a nightmare” ones, which promote the dangers of underage drinking want kids to stop drinking but I can’t help but wonder if it actually has the opposite effect?

  2. It is an irony when we observe our “modern” way of life.

    We generally do little to save whatever we earn. We spend, spend and spend like there is no tomorrow.

    On the other hand, we are great in “saving” loads of calories and cholesterol! We save (calories and cholesterols) more than we can “spend”.

    At the end of the day, we are saddled with empty pockets (zilch savings) and extended mid-section!

    Unfortunately the mid-section cannot be “liquidated” to pay for the extra medical bills that usually come with extended (in some cases over-extended) mid-section…

    Interesting? I think so…

    Doctor2008 says: Your analogy equating health with banks is timely, because both are collapsing 🙂
