Almost every single day, my middle son wants me to get him a ham and cheese sandwich and a bottle of water from Arby's either on the way to work, or on the way home from work. After looking at this list of the highest calorie foods that he COULD be getting from Arby's...I guess I'm pretty happy with his selections.

He's been able to say NO to one of the highest calorie fast food items on any restaurants list. The Arby's  Jamocha Handcrafted Shake. This delicious shake better be the only thing you want to consume today if you get one; as a large shake is a whopping 950 calories all by itself; no meal included.  Plus it's got 141 grams of sugar. And you thought a pop was bad with 24!

Not far behind is Arby's Ultimate Chocolate Shake at 820 calories. 129 grams of sugar.

Burger King has a burger that makes you full just by saying the name. The Double Whopper Sandwich with Cheese. This deliciously filling burger is 980 calories; 11 grams of sugar. I'm guessing it's mostly sodium ,1410 mg, fat 3 grams.  Hmmm...Is your excuse for eating this burger than you really need a lot of protien?  They didn't provided the protein content.  Just think how many calories you could inhale if you turned this into a meal with fries and a bevvy?

Maybe you want to eat something healthier from Burger King? How about some chicken? Yep. We've got a Rodeo Crispy Chicken Sandwich for you. It has 960 calories!  One of these items is almost the full calorie count I can have in a day...as a matter of fact, if I had a burger as a meal with a shake....I'd be in big trouble in the land of scales.
