Top 10 Worst Foods in America

The Cheesecake Factory: Farmhouse Cheeseburger
Maybe, just maybe, if you were working really strenuously on a farm all day, and you were an 18-year old boy–you could handle the nutritional bomb that is the Farmhouse Cheeseburger. This doozy comes topped with grilled smoked pork belly, cheddar cheese, onions, lettuce, tomato, mayo and a fried egg–hey man, kudos for the healthy lettuce and tomato. The burger alone brings in almost enough daily calories for most sedentary women, and way exceeds anyone’s sodium allowance. Factor in the calories and sodium from the fries which tag along just for fun, and you could be feeding the whole flippin’ farm.

If somebody consumes these types of food regularly then they are welcoming a heart attack or organ failure, just stinks that they get to burden the health system and get transplants when they are needed for being STUPID and selfish. IDIOTS!!!

Interesting but unless one eats this stuff on a regular basis, there is such a thing as moderation. There are some bizarre things...very few would even eat all of a 72 oz steak for instance, most would take a large portion of it home and eat it for a few other meals. I believe that they even have a contest there that if one can eat the entire steak it is free. Not many would take them up on that offer and just cart rest of it home. I prefer organic non-factory farm meat but there are other choices such as the cake and that strange looking concoction from Denny's. To each their own. Since I don’t bother with the fast food fare as there are healthier places out there to eat but most of the time I just cook my own organic food from scratch at home and avoid the fast food not to mention the highly processed foods sold in grocery stores.

Some of the food is so rich, it wouldn't interest me. The red velvet cake, all sugar.
The beef dishes I could eat some, say 1/8 of what is served. But why would anyone want to go overboard and cram all this volume into their bodies.

I do not think we will ever know, far too much money involved

If you don't have the money for organic food, try to sook the vegetables in water (20 min) with a tb…

Trust me, I know the feeling and hate leaving my blanket to get ready for work.
