Men's Health Magazine has completed a study and released its first annual list of the worst foods in America.

"Sure, a turkey burger sounds healthy. But is it, really? Not if you order the Bella from Ruby Tuesday, which packs a whopping 1,145 calories. (And yes, that's before a side of fries.) To further enlighten you on the prevalence of preposterous portions, we spent months analyzing menus, nutrition labels, and ingredient lists to identify the food industry's worst offenders. Our primary criterion? Sheer caloric impact. After all, it's the top cause of weight gain and the health problems that accompany it," Men's Health said.

You can log on to the website and select from among twenty of the worst dishes from appetizers to desserts (kids meals included) to find the worst and a healthier alternate from the same restaurant. Declare war on your midriff bulge and eat healthy.
