Numbers Game: Answer

Taco Bell's new limited-offer Fully Loaded Nachos contain 17 grams of saturated fat, 4.5 grams of trans fat, and 2,190 milligrams of sodium.

(NOTE: Daily saturated fat intake should not surpass 20 grams; trans fat recommendations are set at 0 grams per day; daily sodium consumption should be below 2,300 milligrams )

Some more figures to make you go "yikes" -- this "dish" contains over one pound of food and clocks in at 1,390 calories.

Which means more calories, sodium, and saturated fat than a Big Mac with a side of large fries and a large soda.

Seems like thinking outside the bun isn't always such a good idea...
