If you want to indulge in Cheesecake Factory's Bruleed French Toast, you'll have to spend seven hours swimming laps to burn off its 2,780 calories, Ad Age reports.


Such a calorie count lands that dish -- and two others from Cheesecake Factory -- atop the worst meals in America, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest Xtreme Eating awards. In all, Cheesecake Factory has three meals that made the top nine. The french toast meal, which comes with a side of ham or bacon, has almost five days' worth of saturated fat (93 grams), 2,230 milligrams of sodium (more than a day's worth), and 24 teaspoons of (mostly) added sugar, according to CSPI, which tallies the worst meals each year. CSPI noted that "to put that load of sugar into context, the American Heart Association recommends a daily limit of nine teaspoons of added sugar for men and six for women."
