This is the Unhealthiest Meal You Can Get at an American Restaurant

Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is a food safety and nutrition consumer advocacy group that publishes a list of the unhealthiest meals at chain restaurants. In order to meet criteria, the robust meals need to be at least 2,000 calories, or a day’s worth of food.

Last year’s list of nine was topped by Red Lobster’s shrimp version of the “Create Your Own Combination” menu option, making it the unhealthiest meal you can buy at an American chain.

The creative shrimp dish packs four days worth of sodium, and 3,600 calories. A typical create-your-own-stomach-ulcer meal might look like: Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp, Walt’s Favorite Shrimp, and Shrimp Linguine, side orders of Caesar salad, French fries, and a Cheddar Bay Biscuit.

The list included popular chains the Cheesecake Factory, IHOP, and Sonic.
