What is it about fattening foods that lures us in like moths to a flame? Fat is flavor, after all, so the more fat a food has the tastier it will be. Add in copious amounts of salt or sugar, and you’ve got a prescription for addictive tastiness. From ice cream to chicken fried steak, we’ve rounded up the 13 most fattening foods on the planet.

The 13 Most Fattening Foods on Earth (Slideshow)

There’s no question what the single most fattening food on the planet is: that would, obviously, be pure fat, which comes in a few forms. There’s animal fat (lardo, or cured pork fat, is probably the food product that contains the most of it); there’s dairy fat, which is butter in its most concentrated form; and there are nut and vegetable fats, which are pure oil (like olive, peanut, or soybean oil) in their most concentrated forms. So whichever foods contain the most of these fats are, quite obviously, the most fattening foods around.

If there’s one way to demonstrate the genius of man, it’s through his ability to cram as much fat as possible into food. Steak is fatty on its own, but why not batter and deep-fry it? Then, just for kicks, let’s top it with cream gravy! Seriously, It’s a little ridiculous. A burger patty can contain upwards of 20 percent fat, so let’s fry a half-pound patty on a griddle and top it with cheese and bacon! Why? Because it’s freakin’ delicious, that’s why.

So while it’s pretty obvious that the foods on our list are full of fat, what might surprise you is exactly how much fat these foods actually contain. For example, if an 8-ounce (224 gram) beef patty contains 20 percent fat, that means that 20 percent of those 224 grams are pure fat — about 45 grams. And that’s before the cheese.

So while there are good fats and there are bad fats, most of the fats we consume are undeniably bad. And these foods contain more of it than just about any other food on earth.

12 Healthy Fast Food Breakfasts Under 360 Calories

We've all heard it: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. According to research discussed in Zero Belly Breakfasts, people who nosh close to waking up actually eat 12 percent healthier later on in the day. But, unless you're one of the few blessed with the early riser gene, mornings are typically the most stressful time of day, too. This makes it way too easy to grab whatever is quickest and most convenient, without thinking what's inside and how it might affect your diet.

While fast food chains won't be offering you the healthiest options on earth, plenty of places are making the healthy fast food breakfast classics—and many even fall under 300 calories! New staples are showing up to accompany egg and cheese with healthy ingredients like chicken and [chia seeds making appearances. Read on to see what your favorite chain's low-calorie option is—it might surprise you! These quick-service establishments aren't just offering better breakfasts. Next up: low-calorie restaurant meals under 500 calories.


10 Most Fattening Foods in the World

You might think that the United States, with its super-sized portions, absurdly high obesity rate, and uniquely American innovations like the Doritos Locos Taco, is home to the world's most fattening foods. But you'd be wrong! Our national dishes have nothing on these artery-clogging bad boys from around the world. Here are 10 of the most decadent foods you'll find in other countries.

Acaraje, Brazil

You know what's really not great for you? Palm oil. A mere tablespoon of the stuff contains a whopping 7 grams of saturated fat--which is too bad, because saturated fat makes food taste really great. Case in point, Brazil's acaraje: black-eyed peas formed into a ball, deep-fried in palm oil, and then stuffed with vatapa and caruru (spicy pastes made from dried shrimp, ground cashews . and more palm oil).

Churros, Spain

Forget your boring breakfast of Special K and skim milk. In Spain, a popular way for locals to start the day is with a meal of churros. These fried-dough pastries are dipped in sugar and cinnamon and then--here's the fat kicker--dipped in a thick hot-chocolate drink. Talk about a morning sugar rush!

Poutine, Canada

On its own, the humble potato is a relatively healthy starch. But in the hands of Canadians, it becomes poutine--French fries smothered in gravy and cheddar-cheese curds. This cheesy dish is so popular that it's even sold at Burger King in Canada, where (according to the chain's nutritional information) the dish contains 740 calories and 41 grams of fat.

And that's just the traditional version. There are entire restaurants that solely serve varieties of poutine. Smoke's Poutinerie dishes up Triple Pork Poutine (with chipotle pulled pork, double-smoked bacon, and Italian sausage), Nacho Grande Poutine (with homemade chili, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and jalapeno peppers), and Bacon Cheeseburger Poutine (with prime ground beef, double-smoked bacon, and cheese sauce).

Khachapuri, Georgia

Eating off a plate is so boring. What if your food were served up inside a bread boat instead--and what if the bread boat were filled with melted cheese? Georgians have the right idea with their khachapuri. It's a bread bowl that is stuffed with melted cheese and topped with an egg and a large pad of butter!

Nutella Crepes, France

Just one serving (2 tablespoons) of sweet, chocolaty Nutella spread has 200 calories (110 of which are from fat). And when using a spoon (or a finger) to eat the hazelnut spread straight out of the jar just isn't enough, you'll want to head to France for a Nutella crepe. There, many street carts and restaurants fry up batter in butter and make thin pancake-like pockets in which to deliver your Nutella. Even better, the crepes are usually topped with powdered sugar and sometimes even whipped cream.

Aligot, France

You know the stereotype that French women don't get fat? We have to wonder how that's possible when a dish like aligot is served up in the country's L'Aubrac region. Aligot is made with mashed potatoes, butter, cream, garlic, and melted cheese, all whipped together into a thick, rich dish. According to calorie-counting website FatSecret, 1 tablespoon of aligot contains 6 percent of the recommended daily amount of saturated fat.

Deep-Fried Mars Bars, Scotland

After you've tried the deep-fried fish and deep-fried potatoes in Scotland, what should you have for dessert? A Mars bar--deep-fried, of course. Who wouldn't love a chocolate bar gone all melty and encased in a satisfyingly crunchy shell of fried dough? Answer: The Mars candy company, which reportedly feels that the deep-fried dessert is not in line with the company's goal of promoting a "healthy, active" lifestyle. Because, you know, nothing says healthy like chocolate candy!

Jalebi, India

Sure, plain ol' fried dough is unhealthy on its own. But India really steps up the game with jalebi, deep-fried dough that is soaked in a sugary syrup. Funnel cake, you're on notice--a sprinkling of powdered sugar just doesn't cut it anymore.

Calzone, Italy

Did you know that a traditional calzone uses the same amount of dough as an entire pizza--and that it's meant to serve four people? Or did you, um, think that the whole delicious calzone was all for you? We have the Campania region of Italy to thank for birthing this version of pizza that is even unhealthier than the original. In a calzone, tomatoes, mozzarella, and other traditional pizza toppings are stuffed into an easy-to-eat dough pocket and then served.

Ramen, Japan

Ramen has exploded in popularity over the last few years--and we don't mean the sad, dehydrated Cup Noodles kind of ramen, either. We're talking about the traditional Japanese soup dish, consisting of noodles in broth, topped with a variety of meats and vegetables. Soup is basically a health food, right? Unfortunately, the broth (often made with beef, lard, and oil) really packs a fat punch, even if the noodles aren't fried.

Watercress

The next time you're making a salad, why not throw some watercress in there? The green veggie is an excellent source of folate, which has been shown to stimulate weight loss. In fact, a study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that those with the highest folate levels lose about 8.5 times more weight when dieting than those with the lowest levels of folate. What's more? A separate study in the British Journal of Cancer found that higher dietary folate intake reduces breast cancer risk. In addition to watercress, other good sources of folate include spinach, asparagus, and papaya.

The health benefits of the red-hot spice range from reducing blood pressure to clearing up sinus inflammation. But the hottest research revolves around weight loss. Fiery capsaicin, the compound that gives chiles their signature kick, has been shown to increase body heat, boost metabolic rate and decrease appetite. In fact, scientists are currently looking at turning capsaicin into an all-natural anti-obesity supplement for its ability to activate our "good," calorie-burning brown fat stores. Scientists say capsaicin's weight loss benefits occur at a molecular level by altering key proteins found in fat.
