Not the good kind of award-
The dishonorable "Xtreme Eating" awards have been announced this week by the Center for Science in the Public Interest to recognize America's most gluttonous restaurant dishes. "Let's get one thing clear," the organization's recent newsletter sarcastically opens. "Restaurants having nothing to do with the nation's obesity epidemic." The organization annually recognizes restaurants that are doing their best to keep America's health in the red. Remember Denny's Fried Cheese Melt? Well, it wasn't just a press release, it's still doing 1,260 calories and 21 saturated fat grams worth of damage to each customer who orders it. But that's just one greasy invention we already know. Check out all the other "dishonorees" that made the organization's short list this year. As you read, keep in mind that a healthy diet includes anywhere between 44 to 78 grams of fat (including a maximum of 15 grams of saturated fat per day) and (roughly) 2,000 calories a day, according to Livestrong.com. less
