Worst restaurant foods - The most fattening foods
I have been back in North America for about a month now and have been spending much of that time meeting old friends and family. Along with this I have been enjoying a lot of food. So much so that I have piled on about 7lbs. A lot of the foods like pizza, fried this and that is doing it and although it’s yummy it really is started to wear on me. I think fatty foods are ok as a treat but we should be careful about our levels of consumption. Let’s take a look at some of the worst!
Mega Mel Burger – 4556 calories
The Mel Burger is beyond crazy! It can be found at Mel’s Country Cafe (24814 Stanolind Rd, Tomball, TX 77375) and is made up 1.5lbs of ground beef, 1lb of bacon, 1/4 pound of American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickle in a bun. If you finish it within 2 hours they put your name up on the wall!
Poutine – Average 1300 calories
I’m actually in Montreal, Quebec right now and you wouldn’t believe how protective they are over this dish, don’t dare say anything bad about it but it is a heart attack in a box! Take a bowl of fries, pour on fatty gravy and curdled cheese, so that is fat on fat on fat, yikes! Sadly it is rather yummy though and it can be found throughout quebec from diners to higher class places.

Jack n Grill Denver, CO 7 lb burrito – 3764 calories
I love burritos but not sure I would like a 7lb-er. The 7 pound burrito is a mixture of potato, 12 eggs, ham and cheese. Like all these mega meals you get your pic taken if you eat it all!
Deep fried banana split – 2000 calories
This crazy dish seems to be spreading through State Fairs and was first seen at the Texas State Fair. It’s made of deep fried battered balls of banana, honey and peanut butter with powdered sugar, caramel, chocolate, and whipped cream. It gives me a headache just thinking about it!
Baskin-Robbins large chocolate oreo shake – 2600 calories
We had to include a drink on this list, people forget how bad drinks can be! The shake looks yummy and although there are much more healthy Baskin-Robbins menu options it would be hard to resist trying this at some point!
West Michigan Whitecaps fifth third burger – 4800 calories
This burger which can be found at West Michigan’s ball park contains 5 patties and a 1lb of dough in the bun!
Turducken – estimated 3500 calories
This probably would not be so bad if it wasn’t deep fried at the end. Basically it’s a chicken stuffed with a duck, stuffed with por sausages and deep fried, a bit like the traditional english 12 bird roast but Americanised! Some butchers sell it pre made and you can make it yourself but the deep frying can be dangerous.

The most fattening foods, mostly novelty but surprisingly normal for some!
A lot of these fatty disasters are novelty and you may do something like it once every few years but some of these crazy foods are daily dishes (like the shake we mentioned and poutine) and you really should be careful if this is how you eat.
It’s easy to ignore weight creeping on, cholesterol raising and heart attacks looming but it’s harder to go back (read our post on how to lose weight fast if in this situation) than it is to prevent. Sure I love these foods too but I am just saying treat them as a treat.
