Roughly 93.3 million U.S. adults are considered to be obese, according to the most recent data available to the CDC. Obesity puts a person at risk for heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. One major contributing factor to the obesity factor is fast food. Even if your diet is mostly healthy and you only have a few "cheat meals" a week, this could derail all good intentions.

Not all fast food meals are equal though. 24/7 Wall St recently set forth to determine which fast food items had the most calories by reviewing the nutritional content of every food item included on the menus of dozens of fast food restaurant chains across the U.S.
