Heart Attack on a Plate? 5 Bad-for-You Restaurant Dishes

By    |   Monday, 11 Jul 2016 03:27 PM

Heart attack risk can increase if a person continually eats certain unhealthy dishes at restaurants. Most of these foods contain high amounts of saturated and trans fats and sodium.

Saturated and trans fats are known to contribute to clogged arteries, which increase the risk for having a heart attack. Some culprit foods include fatty meats, margarine, shortening, desserts, fried foods, and highly processed snack foods. Many of these foods are found at your favorite restaurants.

ALERT: 5 Signs Your Heart Is In Trouble

The following five foods are among the most unhealthy dishes found at many popular restaurants in America. In addition to other lifestyle and genetic factors, eating these foods on a regular basis may increase one’s risk of having a heart attack.

1. The personal Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza at Uno Chicago Grill packs a whopping 4,490 calories into one meal, more than twice the daily caloric recommendation for women and nearly that for men, too. It also has 319 g fat, 101 g saturated fat, 9,540 mg sodium, 237 g carbs, 9 g fiber, 16 g suger, and 188 g protein. That sodium level is more than four times normal dietary guidelines.

2. Salsa Verde Beef Nachos, found at Applebee’s, contain 1,800 calories, 122 g fat, 53 g saturated fat, 6,090 mg sodium, 109 carbs, 9 g fiber, 14 g sugars, and 71 g protein. The sodium alone is 4,590 mg over the daily recommended intake set by the American Heart Association.

3. Pot Pie Italiano Nonna’s Kitchen Sink from the Olive Garden is filled with high starch, carbs, and fats: cheese, baked ziti, various meatballs, sausage, and a hearty meat sauce. This artery-clogging dish contains 1,670 calories, 99 g fat, 45 g saturated fat, 2,910 mg sodium, 126 g carbs, 10 g fiber, 10 g sugars, and 70 g protein.

4. The Cheesecake Factory's Beef Ribs are its highest-calorie menu item at 2,310 per plate — more than four times the calories in a McDonald's Big Mac. The ribs also have 74 g saturated fat, 1,610 mg sodium, and 110 g carbs. The restaurant's Bistro Shrimp Pasta and Pasta Carbonara With Chicken aren't far behind, with each coming in at 2,290 calories per dish.

5. Ultimate Cheese Sampler served at Buffalo Wild Wings contains 2,310 calories, 157 g fat, 65 g saturated fat, 6,530 mg sodium, 140 g carbs, 13 g fiber, 19 g sugars, and 84 g protein. This appetizer contains three days' worth of fat and sodium.
