America’s top ten worst food count-down


Taco Bell Fully Loaded Nachos
If there were 10 Diet Commandments, somewhere on that list would be this sage piece of advice: Thou shalt never eat the receptacle in which thy food is served.

Nothing healthy comes in a carbohydrate bowl! Taco Bell has taken the edible food vessel one step further. Their “Fully Loaded Nachos,” which are already a big pile of greasy chips with “double the seasoned beef, fiesta salsa, guacamole, hearty beans, three cheese blend and nacho cheese sauce,” are served in a giant fried tortilla. Nachos served in a nacho. Not-cho best idea, Taco Bell.

Parent company Yum! had been making tremendous progress on the healthful fast food front, by touting its Fresco menu at Taco Bell, adding lighter items at Long John Silver’s and volunteering to post nutritional info. This, along with that whole “Fourth Meal” campaign, is a giant step back across the border, Taco Bell!

Here are the numbers on the “Not Yo Nachos” – 1390 calories and a whopping 83 grams of fat – 17 saturated and 4.5 grams transfats.  They contain 2,190 mg sodium and 70 mg cholesterol.  If you want to commit suicide, this is your best bet.

Tomorrow we’ll take a look at Chili’s Texas Cheese fries. – the worst offender of all.

Yesterday we slammed Wendy’s mushroom cheese burger.  In answer to your question Nance, a better alternative at Wendy’s is their delicious chili.  The small order is 220 calories, six grams fat and 5 grams fiber (that’s a good thing, as Martha Stewart would say).  I like to order a plain baked potato (270 calories, 0 fat and 7 grams fiber) and dump the chili on it rather than butter and sour cream.
