    Well... at least the Outback Cheese Fries didn't make the list this year. Which is surprising cause I think they were #1 last year. If there was an Outbackany closer to my house I'm not sure I'd still be alive. [​IMG]

    I think Promised Land Chocolate Milk should take the title of "Worst Chocolate Milk."

    For 16 oz of Promised Land chocolate milk, you're looking at:
    ~480 calories
    ~20 grams of fat (12 saturated)
    ~62 grams of sugar

    Reading these lists the last few years has really hit home for me as far as eating out. In other words I dont do it. I would say Im up to 90% of my weekly foodintake made from my house.

    I mean, I would never order or buy most the foods/drinks on these lists....but I've frequented the restaurants from time to time and can see how bad thingscan get even if you HALVED these items. And it takes lists and info like this to really show you what you eat when you go out to eat.

    Better diet habits FTW


    And lastly, taking aside the king Heath Bar Shake [​IMG] you have somethinglike the Jamba Juice Peanut Butter smoothie...some poor guy is walkin in there and ordering that knowing it's not the healthiest thing but probably nothaving any clue it's got nearly FOUR Mountain Dew cans worth of sugar in just one drink, SMH Jamba Juice are you serious [​IMG]
