I logged onto Yahoo today, and the headline read “Worst Foods in America”. So seeing as though i’m trying to stay somewhat healthy as of late, I decided to check it out. I think most of it was fairly obvious…but the one that shocked me was the Chipotle Burrito. 1,179 calories? Really? What is it in that burrito that bumps up the caloric count. OK..I get the cheese and sour cream…but do they lace their rice with fat? More details on the burrito after the break.

Perhaps the most misleadingly named dish in America: A dozen crunchy tacos from Taco Bell will saddle you with fewer calories.
It’s the caloric equivalent of eating 14 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, before your dinner arrives. Even if you split this “starter” with 3 friends, you’ll have downed a meal’s worth of calories. And people wonder why America is obese.
