Unhealthiest Things at Olive Garden

It’s not easy to eat healthy at the Italian chain

The "Tour of Italy" contains 1,500 calories.

Olive Garden is one of America’s biggest and most popular Italian restaurant chains, and it has recently come under a lot of fire for practices its investors don’t agree with, like giving away too many breadsticks and not salting the pasta water. They’ve also been taking pains to try to add some healthier options to their menu. But for every baked tilapia with shrimp, which contains just 360 calories and 12 grams of fat, there are also a whole host of unhealthy options with more than 1,000 calories.
