10 Restaurant Meals That Will Make You the Fattest
On Tuesday we reported on two university studies that found that restaurant meals are really, really fattening. One meal, on average -- whether breakfast, lunch or dinner -- contains more than half the FDA's recommended daily calories for a healthy adult, as well as whopping amounts of salt and saturated fat.
Malcolm Bedell/From Away Cheeseburgers ranked No. 20 on the Tufts list, with 1,108 calories
Now the Weather Channel -- yes, the Weather Channel! -- has broken down exactly which meals contain the most calories, according to Tufts and University of Toronto researchers. The results may not surprise you! (And Tropical Storm Alvin could become a hurricane, just FYI.)
10. Steak: 1,506 calories. An average steak dinner, with sides, contains 1,506 calories, according to Tufts University researchers.
9. Lasagna: 1,530 calories. Hi Lasagna, we are shocked to see you here.
8. Veal Marsala, 1,574 calories. Eating veal is bad for your karma anyway.

7. Pork Fried Rice: 1,674 calories. Hint: It ain't the peas.
