    Unhealthiest Sandwich in America

    From a sandwich chain

    http://health.yahoo.com/experts/eatt...re-youll-love/

    WORST SANDWICH IN AMERICA
    Quizno’s Tuna Melt, large
    1,760 calories
    133 g fat (25 g saturated, 1.5 g trans)
    92 g carbs
    2,120 mg sodium

    Tuna melts are scary because they sound so harmless—in almost all other forms, tuna is usually a smart and healthy choice. So what’s with the insane caloric overload? Blame the fat-packed mayo the tuna is mixed with, along with Quizno’s larger-than-life portion sizes. Even though they’ve managed to trim this melt down from the original 2,000-plus calorie mark when we first tested it, it still remains the worst sandwich we’ve found.

    I didnt think you could get that many calories into a sangwhich unlessin it was made entirely of butter.

    I guess if you had to eat one meal a day, it would suffice, if you put some lettuce on it.

    Quizno's does have some good sammiches but a tuna melt ain't one of them.

    I don't think that's the unhealthiest sammich though. Watching Monday Night Football you see some with whole orders of fries on it, etc....

    I take exception to that statement - the Quiznos across the street from where I used to work had rather small portions. Smaller than their competitor, Subway. For the price, I WISH they had larger than life portions.
