Let's not kid ourselves. We've totally bombed our attempts at healthy New Year's resolutions.
But what is the most unhealthy meal you can eat at an American chain restaurant? No, it's not from McDonalds, TacoBell, or Chick-fil-A... It's from Red Lobster.
That's right. The meal that amounts to a heart-staggering 3,600 calories (as in almost double the suggested daily intake) is from the "Create Your Own Combination" menu.
Along with an 890 calorie 24-ounce signature margarita, the "Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp," "Walt's Favorite Shrimp," and "Shrimp Linguini" combo with a side order of a Caesar salad, French fries, and a "Cheddar Bay Biscuit," will basically shatter your New Year's resolutions in one sitting.
So if you're a pro-athlete like Michael Phelps who's trying to down thousands of calories to combat what you burn in workouts, we'd still say you should probably stay away from this meal.
Actually, everyone should stay away from this combination, regardless of your athletic status.
Unfortunately, Red Lobster isn't alone when it comes to joints offering meals that rack up mega calories. IHOP's "Chorizo Fiesta Omelette" clocked in at an unhealthy 1,300 without the side of pancakes-- but who doesn't eat the side of pancakes?!

But what about a nice steak from Outback Steakhouse? How about 2,400 calories (including 71 grams of saturated fat and 3,560 mg of sodium) from a 16 oz prime rib with a loaded baked potato and a starter classic blue cheese wedge salad. Oh, and some bread, because Outback has the best bread.
We're not saying you need to immediately declare that you're going on some fad diet that may or may not cause you to lose a pound or two (or gain them, more like), we're just telling you to pay attention to those little numbers next to the menu items.
Or not, because so many things do taste better than skinny feels. Trust.[via Time] [Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
