New Delhi: A restaurant meal – from appetisers to desserts — and every course that comes in between is the worst food one can eat. A little time off from cooking and prepping meals won’t hurt anyone, but without proper research into what we are eating is what dietary disasters are.
Restaurants use excessive salt, oil, butter, and sugar – all of which are a perfect recipe for sabotaging your heart health, blood pressure, blood sugar, and weight. Research by the Food Standards Agency reveals that one in six teenagers eat fast food twice a day. And the heart disease situation across the US and Canada is alarming. Here is the list of worst restaurant meals that are literally death traps.
  1. Deep Dish Cheese Pizza — With nearly 2000 calories, ordering a Deep Dish pizza at any restaurant would mean consuming more calories in one meal than one is supposed to have in the entire day. It also packs double the daily limit of fat. Plan on walking for four to five hours if you want to work off the calories you will gain with this guilty pleasure.
  2. cheese fries — Potatoes topped with cheese with added salt and deep-fried. A regular portion of fries contains around 1300 calories, throw in 100 gms of cheddar on top of this, and the dish becomes tasty, yet a calamity for your body.
  3. sandwiches — Sandwiches are one of the sneakiest foods you can order at an eatery. Even with lean chicken, they can add up to a ton of calories and two days’ worth of saturated fat. And if you ask where all is it hiding? The answer lies in the extra slice of bread, mayo, sauces, and even bacon.
  4. Brownie with ice cream – Each slice of a decadent chocolate brownie along with a scoop of ice cream and chocolate sauce that is used for garnishing adds up to nearly 1000 calories in that one meal. Another scary aspect of this dessert is its horribly high sodium content with one brownie treat packing 760 milligrams or as much sodium as you would get from eight salty chips.
  5. Chicken Masala Tikka — With approximately 1000 calories on each plate, Chicken Masala Tikka does have plenty of vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron, but the indulging cream, yoghurt, and tomato sauce tip the scales here before you even add rice or naan (Indian bread baked on coal or direct flame and dollops of butter added to it). Plus, this puts you well over your daily limit of saturated fat and sodium.
