VITAL: BETTER burgers.

A BELLY-BUSTING burger launched in the US has been labelled the deadliest fast food in the world.

The Monster Thickburger is packed with two 5oz slices of beef, four strips of bacon, three cheese slices and a splash of mayonnaise, all served up in a buttered bun. Each burger has a whopping 1420 calories and 107g of fat.

And scoffing just one Monster Thickburger would nearly use up all the calories you should eat in a day - 1940 for women and 2550 for men. But burger fans who want to lose a few pounds shouldn't panic.

There are a wide selection of healthier burgers available in most supermarket freezer sections.

Tesco's Quarter-Pounder burger should satisfy most appetites, but only contains 12.1 grams of fat. And for a really healthy treat that's low in fat but high in protein, try a Quorn burger.
