Diet Disasters! 5 Most Calorific Meals You Can Order At America's Favourite Food Chains

June 14, 2015 2 min read

Sometimes when we dine out, we know we are making less than perfect diet decisions but do we really know how 'bad' we are being? Below we've listed 5 dishes it is best to avoid if you have any hopes of saving your diet.

Red Lobster's Create Your Own Combination

one Seafood is never a bad choice right? Wrong. A little grilled fish with a side of grilled veg is just fine but when you deep fry it, slather it in butter or cream sauce or toasted coconut AND put it all on one plate, you're asking for trouble. This dish at Red Lobster can contain 3,660 calories and 101 grams of fat with a whopping 6,860mg of sodium! When dining out, it is best to skip the deep fried, creamy, buttery numbers!

Uno Pizzeria & Grill's Deep Dish Pizza

two Pizza seems like a reasonable choice but not this one. This one over does it on the cheese and just about everything else. It has 2,000 calories and 143 grams of fat (49 of them saturated fat) and 5,420 milligrams of sodium! That's about three days worth of sodium! Best to by-pass anything with this much cheese and go for a salad instead.

Outback Steakhouse Herb Prime Rib

three Ordering this meal means you get one pound of meat, a dressed baked potato and a blue cheese wedge salad. This plate contains 2,404 calories, 169 grams of fat and 3,565 milligrams of sodium. This is about the same as ordering three 10-ounce steaks at the same restaurant. In this case, it isn't just the meat, it is all the extras. And watch out for portions, restaurants often serve you way more food than you need. Why not grab a 10 ounce steak with veggies and a side salad?

The Cheesecake Factory Louisiana Chicken Pasta

four This dish is bow tie pasta with mushroom, peppers, onions and chicken. Sounds pretty safe but it definitely isn't. The breaded Parmesan crust on the chicken and the butter sauce with heavy cream torpedo the whole deal. It has 2,370 calories and 80 grams of saturated fat. 4 days worth of fat. As yummy as buttery cream sauces are, it is best to not go that route at all. It would take 6 hours of biking to burn off this meal or one like it.

The Cheesecake Factory Warm Apple Pie

five If this were straight up apple pie, it would be one thing but it is loaded with ice cream, whipped cream and caramel sauce. Delicious sounding but brutal for the waistline. It has 1,740 calories and 48 grams of fat. Imagine if you ate this after eating the Louisiana Chicken Pasta! As tempting as a dessert may be, you're better off taking a pass. It can be hard to stay on a diet at the best of times but imagine how much more difficult it becomes to see results when your consuming more than a day's worth of calories, fat and sodium in a single course of a single meal. Think really hard before you order those delightful sounding deep fried, butter soaked, creamy dishes. In the end, they just aren't worth it. h/t: Daily Mail

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
