the worst food in america

Check out this article about how bad restaurant (not fast food!) is for us. It's scary. And scary. And did I mention that it's scary?

According to the writers' research, this is the Worst-For-You Food in America:

Outback Steakhouse Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing
2,900 calories
182 g fat
240 g carbs

"It's the caloric equivalent of eating 14 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, before your dinner arrives. Even if you split this "starter" with 3 friends, you'll have downed a meal's worth of calories."

This isn't food for thought. This is food for your fat cells. This is food to add on to your fat cells.

But you know what? We're getting an Outback in a couple of months and those fries are at the top of my list. Right below a Bloomin' Onion. Yum!!!

Well, just remember that you'd have to bike about 50 miles to ride off the calories.

I do know, though, what it's like to be in a foreign country and get a little taste of "home"...any kind of taste! If I were you, I know I'd be doing the same thing. ;o)
