 Survey Reveals Unhealthiest of Fast Foods

A recent survey by Men's Health magazine has revealed that the Top 10 fast-food restaurants in the US boast entrees loaded with stomach-stuffing, artery-clogging saturated fat, sodium, and calories.

"Fast food requires fast decisions, and we wanted to create a guide to help people lose weight while still eating fast food," the New York Post quoted David Zinczenko, author of the book series "Eat This! Not That!' as saying.

Topping the list as the worst of the worst was the Tuna Melt sandwich combo from Quiznos. The value meal tops out at an astonishing 1,900 calories-the equivalent of eating an entire bag of Chips Ahoy! cookies and near the average person's daily caloric intake, the study noted.

No. 2 on the list was the Triple Baconator Value Meal from Wendy's-the sandwich, which has three hamburger patties, three slices of cheese and nine strips of bacon, packs a 1,850-calorie punch when paired with a small Coke and fries.

"As long as you don't overindulge, you're good," said an optimistic Carlos Suarez of Long Island, who bought the fat-packed Tuna Melt at a Quiznos on Chambers Street.

The good news, the study suggests, is that you don't have to stop eating fast food altogether- you just have to make smarter choices.

"Once people have an understanding of the caloric calamities out there, they can make better choices and still have burgers. If people make changes like this three times a week when they order fast food, they can lose four pounds," said Zinczenko.

"I guess after that I should only be having fruit and water for the rest of the day!" said Maurice Cummings, 37, of Brooklyn, after ordering a Big Breakfast at a McDonald's in Harlem.
