CSPI Releases Its Annual List Of The Fattiest Foods In America
This did not make the list
Some restaurants, it seems, are trying their best to kill you as quickly as possible. While we knew that most dishes at places like The Cheesecake Factory and Outback Steakhouse were incredibly unhealthy, we still didn't know which ones were the absolute worst of the worst. Now, thanks to The Center for Science in the Public Interest, we do.
CSPI released their annual list of "Xtreme Eating" earlier this week, in hopes of scaring some people into a healthier lifestyle. We don't know if it will work, but at the very least, it is morbidly fascinating. Turn the page for the list.
