Top 10 Calorie Bombs Served In Restaurants

6. Grilled shrimp

If you think about it, there is practically nothing bad you can say about shrimp: it does not have a lot of fats, the amount of calories is within an acceptable range, it is rich in iron and high in protein. To put it simply, it is the ideal meal for a person trying to lose weight with a balanced diet and exercise. However, if you want to enjoy the benefits of grilled shrimp, then watch out for the dressing and sauces you eat it with. Most sauces typically served with shrimp are butter based. Butter provides a high amount of fats and salt, usually close to the one that a person who is not on a diet should have for the day.


7. Tuna salad sandwich

The real reason why the tuna salad sandwich made it to this top is not the salad itself, but because most people enjoy it with mayo and cheese. In addition to the mayonnaise and cheese, in restaurants the tuna sandwich is served with two large slices of bread. Basically, the restaurant bread, cheese and mayo alone have the potential to turn a light sandwich into an over 700 calories bomb.


8. Veggie and turkey burgers

Even though a skinless turkey burger or a vegan burger sound healthy and light, the truth is that their size, condiments and fat content is what truly gives its calorie and nutritional value. More often than not, a large veggie burger contains over 1,000 calories and around 70 grams of fat because of its size, specific sauce and the cheese that it comes with. However, this does not mean you should give up burgers altogether, but rather that you should order one without the topping and cheese.


9. Pizza

Everyone on a diet knows to stay clear of pizza, especially the house specialty or the pizza with everything. But, how about the pizza that you can make yourself? In general, whether your “light” pizza becomes a calorie bomb or not starts with the crust you pick for it. If you love pizza and simply cannot refrain from having a slice, then ask for the thinnest crust and avoid adding too much meat on it. At the same time, you could have a small portion of fresh salad before the pizza to calm your hunger down.


10. Eggplant based foods

Although the eggplant has very few calories on its own, it is also the vegetable that can absorb the most fats from meals. In other words, while a delicious eggplant salad with raw onions has less than 100 calories, combing the salad with parmesan, chicken and cheese will lead to a dish with over 1,000 calories.
