Answer: Hot Dog

“Even if you get the fat-free hot dogs, they’re going to have quite a bit of salt in them,” says dietitian Heather Rasmussen, Ph.D., of the Women’s Heart Center at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. “And salt raises blood pressure, which contributes to heart disease.” Watch the size of the burger though -- keep it to no more than 4 ounces (the size of a deck of cards.) Pass on the cheese to save even more calories.
