14 Unexpectedly High-Calorie Fast Food Items
We all know fast food has a lot of calories with only a little nutritional bang. However, the number of calories in fast-food products can still shock us, even after years of reading nutritional information. According to the U.S. Department of Health, the average adult needs around 2000 calories per day. So, when a fast-food milkshake takes up a quarter of your daily calories, it’s easy to go over the number. Of course, we’re not here to judge you for your dietary decisions. Eat whatever you want. But these comparisons help to make us more conscious calorie consumers when we’re on the go and looking for a treat.
Here at Cracked, we aren’t nutritional experts. So take all these comparisons with a tasty grain of fry salt. We don’t know what makes sense for your dietary, health, and financial needs. Calories aren’t the only numbers that matter, but they are an interesting way to quickly compare different food products. And, boy, do we love to compare numbers.
