The Center For Science in The Public Has Interest has ranked the 9 most unhealthy and possibly diabetes inducing dishes and some of your faves might be on it…
It’s not easy to win an Xtreme Eating award. For starters, most restaurant meals pack around 1,000 calories, so anything in that neighborhood is a yawner. To stand out in the crowd, you’ve got to hit around 2,000 calories—an entire day’s worth of food—even if it’s just dessert.
But our winners have what it takes…a total disregard for the obesity epidemic and the coming diabetes tsunami. Of course, you can’t blame restaurants for that. That would be so unfair.
Hit the flip for some artery clogging eats.
