Do you hit up the drive thru every so often to get a fast-food burger fix? While it's no surprise that fast food isn't great for you, not all burgers from America's major chains are created equal. Here, we take a look at the worst burgers for you in terms of calorie and saturated fat content. We also consider nutritional factors like sugar (hello, super-sweet BBQ sauces) and sodium (we see you, bacon) when ranking these patties in our calorie counter.
And if you think burgers were always this gargantuan and caloric, we'll have you know that the average cheeseburger today is nearly 80 percent higher in calories than it was 20 years ago, according to the National Institutes for Health. From a McDonald's burger with 18 grams of sugar to a Steak n' Shake burger with an obscene amount of trans fat, here are the worst fast-food burgers that'll make you want to cook all your burgers at home.
