I’ve heard this comment so many times since I entered the health and nutrition world.So many people assume that, if you exercise that you’ll exercise any crap food you ate or you can eat whatever you want. Unless you are a professional athlete of some sort then no you can’t eat whatever you want and think you’ll burn it off in the gym.
Wendy’s Quarter-Pound Single
550 calories, 34 g fat, 13 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat, 1,180 mg sodium, 35 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 8 g sugar, 28 g proteinYou’d have to jump rope for exactly 61 minutes to work off Dave Thomas’ fat and calorie-laden burger. It’s doubtful that even the champion of your elementary school’s double dutch team could go for that long. Opt for the Jr. Cheeseburger instead to slash 270 calories from your order—and shave a half-hour from your subsequent workout.
McDonald’s Big Mac
540 calories, 28 g fat, 10 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat, 970 mg sodium, 47 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 9 g sugar, 25 g proteinYou’d have to run for 50 minutes to burn off this bi-level burger—assuming you we’re chugging along at about 6 miles per hour. If you typically take about 12 minutes to complete a mile, it will take you closer to 60 minutes to incinerate your lunch.
Arby’s Beef N’ Cheddar
450 calories, 20 g fat, 6 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat, 1,280n mg sodium, 45 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 9 g sugar, 23 g proteinWhat Arby’s does best is roast beef and maybe it should just stick to that plan. The totally decadent-sounding Beef n’ Cheddar Classic is a healthy serving of lean protein that won’t blow your saturated-fat budget. Better yet, if you take a 50-minute bike ride around your neighborhood you’ll be able to burn it right off. Considering how long it takes to burn off some other meals, that’s not half bad.
Jack In The Box Sourdough Jack
700 calories, 45 g fat, 15 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat, 1,180 mg sodium, 39 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 7 g sugar, 35 g protein
If you are lucky to have a Jack In The Box. Both the bread and the patty contribute to the trans fat content of this caloric calamity—which by the way, would require 3 hours and 25 minutes in the weight room to work off. Hate the gym?
Blimpie Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich
Large, 1,190 calories, 70 g fat, 24 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 2,860 mg sodium, 89 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 15 g sugar, 53 g protein
When hot dog vendor, Pat Olivieri, first invented the cheesesteak in the 1930s, I don’t think this 1,190 calorie monstrosity was what he had in mind. By stretching out the bun (and the overall portion size) and then topping their creation with both cheese and peppercorn dressing, Blimpie managed to create a sandwich that requires over four hours of hatha yoga to negate. Just say no to this terrible lunch.
Burger King Double Whopper
850 calories, 54 g fat, 18 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fat, 870 mg sodium, 49 g carbs, 11 g sugar, 43 g protein
Carl’s Jr. Breakfast Burger
830 calories, 44 g fat, 19 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat, 1,540 mg sodium, 68 g carbs, 4 g fiber, 13 g sugar, 39 g protein
Chick-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich
440 calories, 18 g fat, 4 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 1,390 mg sodium, 41 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 5 g sugar, 28 g protein
Chipotle Chips and Guac
800 calories, 49 g fat, 7 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 795 mg sodium, 81 g carbs, 14 g fiber, 5 g sugar, 10 g protein
Dunkin Donuts Big N’ Toasted
570 calories, 31 g fat, 11 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 1,290 mg sodium, 44 g carbs, 1 g fiber, 4 g sugar, 27 g protein

KFC Go Cup with Extra Crispy Tenders
540 calories, 27 g fat, 4 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 1,330 mg sodium, 50 g carbs, 4 g fiber, 0 g sugar, 24 g protein
Long John Silver’s Baja Fish Tacos
2 tacos: 720 calories, 46 g fat, 9 g fat, 7 g trans fat, 1,620 mg sodium 60 g carbs, 6 g fiber, 4 g sugar, 18 g protein
