High in calories, salt and fat, fast foods have always come in for criticism for causing diet-related diseases. However, giving them up requires great self-restraint. So if you fail to skip them for good, then at least rule out these 20 unhealthiest fast food chains!
The take-away-only pizza chain seems to have failed to attract customers with its signature Pepperoni Pie due to its awful cheese and cardboard-like dough. And this unsavory pie contains 20 g of fat, 10 gm of saturated fat and 420 calories, so make sure your health insurance is in effect before you try it!
Five Guys may be winning in the eye of the public, but it's not with health critics. A single meal weighs in at 1,500 calories. For any health-conscious consumer, Five Guys is a definite no-go.
Many people may be confused as to why their favorite fast food franchise would land itself on this infamous list. Well, the truth is that more than 1,100 of its customers got food poisoning between 2015 and 2018, which should be reason enough for anyone to skip it.
Despite its overwhelming popularity across the entire nation, the golden arches too find themselves on this notorious list. It seems that its low-quality products, which are overflowing with fats and chemicals don't satisfy customers anymore. Better steer clear of it if you want to enjoy something fresh!
Think twice when you want to grab a taco on the way home. Even if you don't care about the suspicions about its meat, almost every item on its menu is high in fat and sodium. It would be better for you to swear off Taco Bell, especially for those with heart problems.
If you are fond of Domino's 12-inch Pepperoni Handmade Pan Pizza, you might want to cut back on it after hearing of how unhealthy it is. Feasting on this pizza with an astonishing 130gm-fat and 2,420 calories, your belly is sure to be bloated beyond imagination.
After regular complaints about the quality of its meats and salads, Subway seems to be less attractive nowadays to its regular customers. As a result, it shut down 1,000 locations in 2018. It's time to part ways with Subway before it takes a toll on your health.
Most people wouldn't take Starbucks into account when listing out fast food chains. However, the truth is that all its offerings from the hot chocolate to mocha contain a large amount of calories and almost three times of the maximum recommended daily sugar intake.
Pizza Hut is likely the first name coming into your mind when you are starving for a pizza. Although it can't be regarded as the world's worst pizza place, it too has a major problem with health. With the money you pay, you can get a better meal than its salty flavor and rubbery cheese.
Never have breakfast at Burger King if you don't want to put on the pounds. Even the grilled chicken is healthier than its 1,420-calorie offering. And if you are conscious about your cardiovascular system, it's better to drop the guilty pleasure altogether.
The main reason why people choose Sonic to buy fast food can be boiled down to its unique service. It allows customers to order over the phone and wait at a parking station till they bring your food. However, its food is all greasy and is nothing different from other burger places.
Rumors that KFC's chickens are injected with steroids has put it in a tough spot. Though it has been marketing itself as a home-cooked style meal, the quality and taste of its chicken continue to raise doubts.
The wide array of sugary treats has made Dairy Queen one of the most distinctive fast food places around. But what you can find here is that the ice cream tastes like oily plastic and burned burger patties.
Unlike most of its competitors, Arby's is forthcoming about the ingredients of its iconic roast beef sandwiches. However, if you have heard of some complaints from its customers that its food made them sick, perhaps you would label its products as anything other than healthy.
It may never occur to you that a single serving on Wendy's menu can give you a whole day's recommended intake of sugar, salt, and saturated fat. If it doesn't sound astonishing, then the viral video showing the discovery of a mouse among its buns should ring alarm bells.
A more expensive restaurant may give you the illusion that it offers healthy and tasty foods, but it's not the case. It is quite disappointing if you have ever tasted its soggy salad and bland burgers.
The well known brand doesn't guarantee excellence and its offerings definitely have nothing to do with a healthy diet. Though it is hard to swallow, the truth is that you'll be consuming 35 gm of saturated fat, 1,690 mg of sodium and 1,240 calories with each one of its iconic burgers.
Set up in 1980, El Pollo Loco also earns a spot on this list for its poor customer service and unhealthy foods. Skip it unless you enjoy long waits for the overpriced food that you probably didn't order at all.
White Castle may be a fast food chain you've heard of, but never been to. Lucky for you. The restaurant plays a slider card and persuades customers that they haven't overeaten. In reality, they have gobbled down the equivalent of three full-sized burgers with a single serving of sliders.
It's not for nothing that Smashburger has made itself the fastest growing fast food place in many cities. Compared with giants like McDonald's, Smashburger offers more high-quality foods with only slightly higher prices, but may also raise the chance of overeating.
