Coming in at a whopping 1,320 calories, and with more trans fats than you should eat in two weeks, Long John Silver's Big Catch has been declared the "Worst Restaurant Meal in America" by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).
In addition to high caloric content, it had 19 grams of saturated fat, almost 3,700 milligrams of sodium and 33 grams of trans fats. The meal includes fried fish, hush puppies and a side of onion rings.

Read the article............ Long John blah blah is just an American Copy of the old British Fish and Chips takeaway.....
A battered fish with chips, although you Yanks like to toss a couple of onion rings in and try and claim it's your onw.......YAWN
In reality, eaten everyday, then this type of food will clogg you up however eaten irregulary then there is nothing wrong...
EVERYTHING IN MODERATION people.....
If we believe everything we are told then we should all be sucking on a carrot or piece of lettuce whilst whistling our national anthems............ in the real world, enjoy food but eat sensibly and deny some cock-sure journalist the pleasure of trying to control our lives....

i havent had it in awhile, so apparently i can binge a few days a month and be good to go, I want my insides lubed up anyway.
one of my favorite fast foodies. KFC used to be my fav but none of them serve baked beans anymore.. they wont get another penny from me.
gotta go find one near me..
i usually went to Long John once a week when i was 20's. i would order 2 big meals and some sides. pig out and the next day when i hit the gym, I had all day pickup game energy..after 45 min card and 2hrs weights.
However I think we should be investing more in educational programs about eating healthy and making the right choices when it comes to our diet.
It never dawned on these people that she just doesn't want their fat little tubs of lard to not have a heart attack by time they are twenty.

Eh not really, if you eat that many grams of sodium and fat in a single meal, to not cause health concerns, you'd basically have to eat nothing for the rest of the two week period. Eating that meal is unhealthy.
How can you possibly say moderation? Did you even read the numbers involved? That's beyond moderation, that's crazy. The real crazy part though, is most people would agree with you. "Oh, I can eat that once or twice a month and be fine!" Sure, you'll be fine for the immediate future, because you can't instantly see the damages being done to your body.
If you eat that meal "once and awhile" and don't carefully monitor your intake for every other meal, you will NOT be fine. That's a plate of organ issues, skin issues, and heart disease.
But here's the freedom loving part of me. I believe everyone should be able to go buy that if they so choose, because, it's natural selection at work.
It will make them fat and lethargic for one, and those people tend to use those motor carts while shopping so there's always the comedy factor of watching them try to reach items instead of standing up for 3 and a half seconds.
It will create untold numbers of problems with their kidneys and heart. It will clog up their arteries and make the males unable to achieve an erection, meaning declining numbers, which is fine by me, again, it's natural selection at work.
And those who still wish to partake in some sticky naughty fun, do so by taking drugs that stress the heart, a bloated cholesterol clogged heart just on the edge of failure. Again, natural selection.
And the most important part.... those types of people rarely eat unprocessed "food" so I won't be stuck waiting behind them in line at the farm or farmers market.
Win win win really.
