With 80.5 grams of fat, 2.3 grams of sodium and 5085 kilojoules, the Ultimate Double Whopper burger accounts for nearly 60% of an adult's recommended daily calorie intake. Choice spokeswoman Ingrid Just said, "When you add chips and a soft drink to something like the Ultimate Double Whopper, you're consuming a day's worth of kilojoules in one meal."

In a bid to fight the obesity epidemic Choice wants that all fast food outlets across the country should declare kilojoules on their menus by February 2012.
