Many popular restaurants offer healthy-sounding dishes that are packed with calories, fat and sodium. David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding of Yahoo Health compiled this list of 10 “wannabe” healthy foods that may fool you when it comes time to order, taken from the forthcoming Eat This, Not That! 2012 Edition.

#10 Worst “Healthy” Sub

Quiznos Large Veggie on Wheat (Large)
1,000 calories
54.5 g fat (17 g saturated)
2,300 mg sodium

The 400-calorie bun certainly doesn’t help. Neither does the thick layer of cheese and generous splashes of oil. The guys at Yahoo Health recommend that you should only order the large sub if your goal is to become large yourself.

Eat This Instead!
Small Turkey Ranch & Swiss on Wheat
395 calories
16.5 g fat (2 g saturated)
1,100 mg sodium
