It is no shock that eating out can lead to consuming more calories than we should. What may be shocking is that some restaurant meals have more than 3,000 calories, meaning that you could take home most of the meal and still have consumed enough calories for the day in one sitting.
While CSPI stated that almost all the winners hit the 2,000 calories a plate mark (with some topping 3,000 calories), The Cheesecake Factory takes the cake, landing three of the nine spots on the list. The nonprofit stated that the popular mall restaurant could have easily filled the entire list.
Making room for other fat-filled options, Red Robin, Famous Dave’s, and Joe’s Crab Shack all won top spots on the list. Check out all the Xtreme-ly unhealthy meals below:
