8 Worst Foods In America

A new book called Eat This, Not That! shows photos of foods you shouldn’t eat and their more reasonable substitutes. Here is its list of the top eight worst foods in America:

  • Fast Food Meal: McDonald’s Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips with creamy ranch sauce: 870 calories
  • Drink: Jamba Juice Chocolate Moo’d Power Smoothie: 166 grams of sugar, which equals eight servings of Ben & Jerry’s
  • Supermarket Meal: Pepperidge Farm Roasted Chicken Pot Pie: 64 grams of fat
  • “Healthy” Burger: Ruby Tuesday Bella Turkey Burger: 1,145 calories
  • Airport Snack: Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll: 813 calories
  • Kids’ Meal: Macaroni Grill Double Macaroni ‘n Cheese: 62 fat grams
  • Salad: On the Border Grande Taco Salad with Taco Beef: 102 grams of fat and 2,410 mg of sodium
  • Dessert: Chili’s Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream: 1,600 calories, which equals three Big Mac

Eat This, Not That! is mainly a picture book, so it should be easy enough to understand for people whose brains are high on high-fructose corn syrup.
