And the Winner for the Highest Calorie Meal in a Restaurant Goes To…

ID-100188767Are you on the go and too busy to cook? Before you pull in to that chain restaurant for a quick meal, consider the calorie count of some of the meals. You might be a little sticker shocked when it comes to the high count.

One group hands out awards for those meals that go over the top in terms of calorie count. The Center for Science in the Public Interest gives out the Extreme Eating Awards for meals at chain restaurants with the highest calories, fat, sugar and salt.

This is one award you probably do not want to win. Still, we have a winner!

And the winner is…..

Red Robin’s Monster Burger Meal- This meal is a double burger with bottomless fries and a large milkshake. The meal boasts a whopping 3540 calories! Just to give you an idea of how hard you would have to work to burn off those calories, try walking for 12 hours ! Or rethink your order!

In the past, winners have weighed in around 1500 calories, so the Monster Burger Meal really takes the cake. Well, not the cake. The Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake at the Cheesecake Factory is about 1500 calories!

Other notables were Famous Dave’s spare ribs plate, Joe Crab Shack’s seafood platter and Maggiano’ s Little Italy’s steak dish.

Keep in mind that you could order skinny versions of these meals. Simple substitutions like a lettuce wrapped turkey burger with steamed broccoli would make a big difference. And most of these chains have skinny menu options that won’t use up your entire calorie count for the day. So be aware of the monster within, or in this case, the monster without, and make a good choice towards your health.
