14 Unhealthy ''Health'' Foods

Turkey and Veggie Burgers


Think by ordering a turkey burger instead of beef that you've saving on calories? Nope. Depending on the type of ground turkey and the toppings, many turkey burgers pack just as many calories as their beefy counterparts, with some restaurant servings clocking in at over 1,000 calories (not including fries!). And with all the added ingredients (take a look at those labels!) and toppings (think cheese and mayo), veggie burgers can be just as bad.

If you are seriously craving a burger, it helps to at least be informed about the nutritional content, so you aren't duped into believing that your gluttonous meal is good for you.
