    Fast food generally isn’t good for your diet, but some chains are going to be better than others. This chart compiles data from ten fast of the biggest fast food chains to show just how calorie heavy their menus are.

    The chart, created by data site Flowing Data, maps out the calorie content of most items on the menu for ten fast food chains. The result is a general range of how caloric their menus are. The chart also singles out some of the most popular or highest-calorie items. So you can see just where that Big Mac lands on the list.

    You can learn a few interesting things from this chart. For starters, McDonald’s has an unusually big number of high calorie drinks, which are often overlooked when you’re counting calories. Chick-Fil-A, Arby’s, and KFC also rarely have an item that breaks 800 calories. Of course, these are individual items, not your whole meal. And counting calories is an imperfect method to begin with. Still, it’s interesting to see just how fast food chains stack up against each other.
