If you are looking to drop a few pounds, be sure to steer clear of these foods. Most of them cover at least seventy-five percent of your daily caloric needs, and almost all of them are sodium bombs that will send your blood pressure skyrocketing. Yet, the cheese, the pasta, the meat...these foods will leave your mouth watering.
The foods on this list are some of the highest calorie foods readily available to consumers. Many of these meals are featured at popular restaurant chains, and are a source of delectable comfort for the average American. These foods may also be eaten quite frequently because they are dirt cheap. Yet, what you save in your wallet you may gain three-fold in your waistline.
High calorie foods do not have to be big, scary monsters. Avocados, olive oil, and peanut butter are healthy, but calorie-dense foods. Yet the items on this list are much more commonly eaten, and are thrust in front of our eyes day in and day out on billboards and television commercials. Who would not want to delve into a big, juicy burger or a cheesy, carb-o-licious bowl of pasta? Put on your stretchy sweatpants, ditch your scale, and dig in.

1 Double Meatball Marinara with Cheese (Subway) - 1,720 Calories
Subway may be known for its spokesperson's massive weight loss, but you will not be shedding any pounds if you order the Double Meatball Marinara with Cheese. I mean, you probably would not associate good health with big, round meatballs and layers of cheese. At 1,720 calories, this is a submarine sandwich that will feel like a rock sunk in your stomach. It will also give you 210% of your daily sodium needs. You can get all this and more (think gas, bloating, and indigestion) for a grant total of five dollars. You gotta love those five dollar footlongs, right?
