Worst foods in America 2009

Men's Health is out with its list of worst foods in America, and just reading the list made me sick. The winner for worst goes to. ...

Baskin Robbins Large Chocolate Oreo Shake
2,600 calories
135 g fat (59 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fats)
263 g sugars
1,700 mg sodium

... It's soiled with more than a day's worth of calories and three days worth of saturated fat, and, worst of all, usually takes less than 10 minutes to sip through a straw.

Also pretty gag-inducing was the worst burger:

Chili's Smokehouse Bacon Triple-The-Cheese Big Mouth Burger with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing
2,040 calories
150 g fat (53 g saturated)
110 g protein
4,900 mg sodium

... You'll be face to face with two-and-a-half day's worth of fat-a full third of which is saturated. To do that much damage with roasted sirloin, you'd have to eat about eight 6-ounce steaks. It's nearly three days' worth of saturated fat.

I am curious as to what is the worst food you eat on a regular basis. I eat healthy almost all the time, but still can't resist a great pizza (cheese and sauce, no other toppings) once in a while.
