This Is Burger King's Unhealthiest Burger

We all know that fast food restaurants aren't exactly the healthiest place to grab a bite to eat, and Burger King is no exception. Despite recently ditching the artificial ingredients in its iconic Whopper sandwich and offering an online nutrition calculator (via Burger King) that helps customers choose items based on calorie, fat, and carbohydrate count, the advancements are contrasted by a sizable portion of menu items that have nutritional values that are less than ideal.

If you happen to be near a Burger King when the pangs of hunger start calling, or you simply have a hankering for one of their delicious, flame-grilled burgers, it's certainly okay to swing through the drive-thru to pick up a meal. However, if you're also watching calories, there are a few items to be mindful of when ordering. The Double Sourdough King burger, for example, comes in at 1,038 calories (per BK's menu), and the Bacon King burger has 1,313 calories (via Burger King).

While both of these delectable eats are nearly half of the recommended daily caloric intake for adults, there is still one option on the Burger King menu that ranks the unhealthiest of them all.

When it comes to the Burger King menu, the phrase "everything's bigger in Texas" seems to ring true, as the fast food chain's Texas Double Whopper earns the title as the unhealthiest burger option currently available (via BK's menu). Though the sandwich does come topped with fresh veggies such as lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and jalapeños, it also has a double stack of quarter-pound burger patties, bacon, American cheese, mayo, and mustard, per Chew Boom. All together, it brings in a grand total of 1,878 calories for this bad boy, not even counting fries and a drink.

But that's not all. Per Burger King, the Texas Double Whopper also has 136.3 grams of fat, 57.9 grams of carbs, and 3,079 mg of sodium. That last figure is particularly alarming and even warranted the fast food chain to slap a warning label on the sandwich for being 779 mg over the recommended daily limit of sodium, which the American Heart Association sets at 2,300 mg a day.

Now, upgrade the Texas Double Whopper to a meal with a side of medium french fries (383 calories, via Burger King) and a medium Coke (386 calories, per Burger King), and you have a meal calculating in at 2,647 calories. While it's okay to indulge in a cheat meal every once in a while, those regularly turning to Burger King might want to go for a healthier option, such as the chain's Whopper Jr., which has been noted as having the fewest calories.
