Fried Banana Split

This meal is available at a whole host of restaurants across the country and is a real favourite. However, if you are trying to shed a few pounds, then this is certainly not for you. On average you are looking at this particular tasty treat having over 2,000 calories and that means you surpass your recommended daily allowance in one sitting. It might be amazing and goes down a treat, but those scales are only going to head in the other direction if you keep eating this kind of thing on a regular basis.

Baby Back Ribs

The Outback Steakhouse is very popular and their ribs are pretty well known and loved by their customers. However, perhaps their popularity will diminish slightly when it becomes known that these sticky treats are not exactly shy with the calorie count. This meal has over 1,500 calories and 38 grams of saturated fat. Of course you are asking for even more calories if you get fries with it, but it is the meat that really does the damage. Yes it tastes good, but you are pretty much done for calories for the day if you decide to head out for this particular treat.

Tour of Italy

People have this belief that food from Italy is going to be healthy as we all know that the Mediterranean diet is good for our health, but Olive Garden is trying their best to prove that this is not always the case. Their Tour of Italy dish may delight your taste buds, but it does not delight the calorie count. This dish has 1,450 calories, but the bad news does not stop there as it also has 74 grams of fat and 33 grams of that is saturated fat, which is the worst kind and there is also 3,830 milligrams of sodium. When you read facts such as those it is easy to see why you might be put off trying it the next time you are in the restaurant.
Those are just some of the most fattening restaurant foods you should never order and it is easy to understand why when you look at the calorie count and amount of fat that is generally included in them. These meals are generally from well known restaurant chains as well as a couple from more local establishments, but the main theme is that all is not as it seems. Perhaps think twice about what you are ordering the next time you are thinking about eating out.
