If you're eating at McDonald's, you probably aren't counting calories, but you might be surprised at which of the restaurant's menu items are most clogged with calories. Take the Double Quarter Pounder With Cheese, for example. It's one of the more substantial meals at McDonald's, per 24/7 Wall St., but at 780 calories, it doesn't even crack the top 10. Some of the heartiest options:

  1. 40 Chicken McNuggets: 1,880 calories
  2. Big Breakfast With Hotcakes: up to 1,310 calories with a large biscuit
  3. Premium Crispy Chicken Club Sandwich: 990 calories
  4. 20 Chicken McNuggets: 940 calories
  5. 16oz. McFlurry With M&M's: 930 calories
  6. Large Chocolate McCafe Shake: 850 calories
