Top 15 High Calorie Recipes ...

1. Cheeseburger and Fries ...

No surprises here, but this actually contains over 950 calories, without any dips or drinks. Take away cheeseburgers contain a lot more, with some topping 1500 calories per cheeseburger!!

2. Lasagne ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Made with normal cheese, mince and sauce, lasagne contains over 500 calories. However, if made with low fat cheese, mince and sauces, it drops to around 300, so be careful that you are buying the real deal.

9. Gravy ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Gravy that is made with the fat from meat contains 375 calories per cup, and it’s only an accompaniment! An average roast dinner tops 1200 calories, so if your aiming for calories make sure you have one a week.

Eggnog is an odd drink, being very popular abroad and at Christmas. An 8oz serving contains 350 calories, which means you’ll soon pile on the pounds. It’s very fatty, though, so make sure you do some exercise!
