The 12 Worst Fast Food Breakfast Offenders Source:

We don’t always have time for breakfast in the mornings that are often filled with making lunches, getting the kids ready, carpools and early morning meetings. Sometimes the easy answer is to hit the closest drive-thru and pick something up (along with that morning coffee) but some breakfast offerings pack in so much fat, sodium and calories that you’ve already hit your daily limit by the first meal of the day. We’ve done the research and found 12 of the worst fast-food breakfasts in America.

Dunkin Donuts – Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich

Calories: 360
Fat: 20g
Saturated Fat: 8g
Sodium: 720mg

Leave it to America’s donut experts DD to make a breakfast sandwich on a donut. The Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich from Dunkin Donuts features bacon strips and a pepper fried egg sandwiched between a sugary glazed donut. Yes it’s under 400 calories but we doubt these empty calories will fill you up for long. Source: Fanshare

Chick-fil-A – Chicken, Egg & Cheese Bagel

Calories: 480
Fat: 20g
Saturated Fat: 6g
Sodium: 1160mg

While still pale in comparison the the fat and calories of many other items on this list, the Chicken, Egg & Cheese Bagel from Chick-fil-A has over half your daily sodium. And although it may be served on a seemingly ‘healthy’ multi-grain bagel, you probably shouldn’t start your day with a piece of fried chicken. Source: Twitter/Chick-Fil-A

Fat: 32g
Saturated Fat: 18g

Millions of people around the world visit a Starbucks for their morning cup of coffee so picking up a quick breakfast on the go here seems only natural.

McDonalds has dominated the fast-food breakfast scene for decades and while the original Egg McMuffin was a reasonable substitute for a home cooked breakfast, the sandwiches have only evolved to become worse and worse for you. Like this, the Steak, Egg and Cheese Bagel Sandwich. With 670 calories and 1320mg of sodium you’ll be full and you’ll be fat. Source:

Taco Bell encourages its customers to ‘Live Más’ meaning live more…if by ‘more’ they mean more calories, they’re succeeding with the 710 calorie Sausage A.M. Crunchwrap. It’s rarely a good idea to start your day with over 45g of fat wrapped in a grilled flour tortilla. Source:
