We have a great time writing about fast food, which is why we were delighted to see that the Center for Science in the Public Interest has put out a list of the most unhealthy chain restaurant meals it could find. While our personal pick for the least healthy meal didn’t have the most calories of all the meals surveyed, it more than made up for this with massive sodium and saturated fat counts that are simply off the charts.

Steak ‘n Shake’s amazing 7×7 Steakburger ‘n Fries (pictured at the top of the page) features an artery-assaulting seven beef patties and seven pieces of American cheese to go along with a side order of fries. And because this is Steak ‘n Shake, we just have to order a milkshake to wash this monster burger down — in this case, we’ll go with the Chocolate Fudge Brownie Milkshake that alone accounts for nearly half of your daily caloric intake.

Together, these two items account for  2,530 calories, 68 grams of saturated fat and an astonishing 5,060 milligrams of sodium, which represents more than three days’ worth of your daily recommended salt intake.

This is only one of America’s least healthy fast food meals. To learn about the rest, because sure to read the Center for Science in the Public Interest’s full article here.
