The fattiest restaurant meals in the U.S.

The Bistro Shrimp Pasta at the Cheesecake Factory.

This final note today, which should just about kill any craving for a snack you're having right about now.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest is out with its annual list of food porn. That is, the fattiest, most caloric meals out there.

Topping the charts is The Cheesecake Factory's Bistro Shrimp Pasta -- 3,120 calories, 89 grams of fat, a thousand miligrams of sodium.

That's like, what, four meals all in one?
