Thanksgiving may be over, but December is about to bring more holiday meals and celebrations, which means grocery shopping demands will remain high. Unfortunately, supply chain issues are still rampant across the country, and several big supermarket chains are taking drastic steps to make sure that their stores are fully stocked. In fact, several big-name grocery store chains are headed to Washington D.C. today to meet with President Biden in order to address food shortages head-on.
Leaders of Walmart, Kroger, Food Lion, Todos Supermarket, CVS, and other major retailers are meeting with the White House either in person or virtually on Monday, Nov. 29 to hear about President Biden's plans to curb inflation, delays, shortages, and low supplies ahead of Christmas, Bloomberg reports.

The meeting comes after the President spoke to the press on Nov. 23 about the problems that have come about in the wake of the pandemic. The President told reporters:
"Disruptions related to the pandemic have caused challenges in our supply chain which have sparked concern about shortages and contributed to higher prices.
Moms and dads are worried, asking, 'Will there be enough food we can afford to buy for the holidays? Will we be able to get Christmas presents to the kids on time? And if so, will they cost me an arm and a leg?'
I told you before that we are going to take action on these problems, and that's exactly what we're doing."
The President then outlined the Port Action Plan, which aims to relieve the pressures ports are facing to unload stalled cargo ships, especially on the West Coast in Los Angeles and Long Beach. The three-month effort involves ports switching from operating 40 hours a week to 24/7, as well as sending efforts to ports on the East Coast, like Savannah, Ga., to reduce congestion.

Starbucks has finally announced its autumn lineup. Here are seven Starbucks fall drinks that we’ve already fallen hard for year after year, plus info on the new apple crisp macchiato.
The President previously met with the CEOs of Walmart, Target, and others in mid-November who agreed to bring in more products faster in order to restock shelves. Although shortages of things like apples, cranberries, turkeys, and other Thanksgiving foods were rumored, no widespread shortages were reported this past Thanksgiving weekend… only higher prices.
President Biden is expected to report on the results from the meeting with Walmart, Kroger, and other major food retailers shortly, at which point, Eat This, Not That! will have updates on this developing story.

Sure, you may have some mad love for this burger—we know, it looks pretty delicious—but your waistline and heart will not feel the same love your tastebuds get to experience. At 1,060 calories, Red Robin's MadLove Burger is one of the worst burgers you could order for your health. If you still need your fix of red meat, order the Keep It Simple beef burger for 540 calories and a fraction of the fat and sodium.
Nutrition: 1,067 calories, 60 g fat (22 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,084 mg sodium, 79 g carbs (3 g fiber, 30 g sugar), 54 g protein
Friendly's Honey BBQ Burger is packed to the brim with calories. It also costs you an entire day's worth of saturated fat and as much sugar as you would get from three Original Glazed Krispy Kreme Donuts. Instead, order Friendly's All-American Burger for about half of the calories and saturated fat.
Nutrition: 1,110 calories, 55 g fat (25 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 3,530 mg sodium, 110 g carbs (3 g fiber, 76 g sugar), 46 g protein
TGI Friday's whips up some mean burgers, but do they really have to be this caloric? The restaurant's Signature Whiskey-Glazed Burger—which is infused with Jack Daniels—may as well be marketed as a heart-stopper within a bun with 3,530 milligrams of sodium. For perspective, The American Heart Association recommends that you consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day to keep your heart healthy. This burger costs you more than a day and a half's worth.This burger also packs 76 grams of sugar—about three times greater than the AHA suggested consumption of 25 grams of added sugar per day for women and more than double the suggested amount of 36 grams for men.

Red Robin's Southern Charm Burger may be extremely delicious, but beware, because it comes with a price tag—nutritionally speaking, that is. Aside from being high in calories, fat, and sodium (which are all things you expect from a burger on this list) it also packs a whopping 43 grams of sugar, which contains more than 10 grams of sugar than a 2/3 cup serving of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream.

Perkins dishes up an old-fashioned patty melt, but not one you should eat often. Why? There are over 1,100 calories in this sandwich, and may we remind you that's without any sides.

Nutrition: 1,240 calories, 78 g fat (28 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,750 mg sodium, 82 g carbs (2 g fiber, 35 g sugar), 52 g protein
This burger may be best described as a beast with onion tanglers and bacon sandwiched in between a generous 6-ounce Angus beef patty and buttery brioche bun. It packs a lot of fat too, thanks to the bacon, beef, and sharp cheddar cheese between its buttery buns.Don't miss 9 Worst Fast-Food Menu Items That Are Loaded With Bacon!
Nutrition: 1,260 calories, 83 g fat (30 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 2,360 mg sodium, 68 g carbs (4 g fiber, 25 g sugar), 61 g protein
This burger is stacked in smokehouse meats—just look at the size of it! It towers so high from all of the bacon that it needs to be held together by a large steak knife. Just how much is 1,260 calories? For context, you would have to eat almost 120 Lay's Potato Chips.
Nutrition: 1,350 calories, 99 g fat (36 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,070 mg sodium, 35 g carbs (2 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 71 g protein

Nutrition: 1,380 calories, 100 g fat (30 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,560 mg sodium, 50 g carbs (10 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 70 g protein
The picture only shows one layer of meat, but imagine this burger with two ground turkey patties! This sandwich clocks in at a whopping 100 grams of total fat, nearly a third of which is devoted solely to saturated fat. The gluten-free bun and the turkey patties actually hike up the calories by a considerable amount. For a healthier option, opt for the Rocket Single Burger for just 470 calories and 10 grams of saturated fat.
9. The Cheesecake Factory's Americana Cheeseburger
Nutrition: 1,400 calories, 93 g fat (37 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 3,370 mg sodium, 79 g carbs (4 g fiber, 25 g sugar), 60 g protein

Nutrition: 1,470 calories, 102 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 3.5 g trans fat), 2,700 mg sodium, 72 g carbs (4 g fiber, 22 g sugar), 65 g protein
This burger from The Cheesecake Factory may not look like it's huge, but trust us when we say it's loaded in calories, fat, and sodium. Or, better yet, just refer to the numbers above. For an equivalent amount of total fat, you could eat nearly eight Dove Milk Chocolate Bars.
Nutrition: 1,512 calories, 101 g fat (47 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,981 mg sodium, 42 g carbs (1.5 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 103 g protein
Friendly's Triple Decker Bacon Burger packs 47 grams of saturated fat, which is more than double the recommended daily allowance of about 20 grams. Ideally, you should limit your saturated fat intake to just 13 grams a day to prevent heart disease and stroke, according to the AHA. Also, this burger is just large and far too excessive for someone to be eating in one sitting.
Nutrition: 1,530 calories, 107 g fat (42 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 3,130 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (4 g fiber, 16 g sugar), 92 g protein
This burger is truly an artery-clogging monster with 43 grams of saturated fat and over 3,000 milligrams of sodium. Not to mention, it packs over 90 grams of protein, which is far too much for your body to metabolize all at once. In fact, different experts say that the body can only utilize between 15-35 grams of protein at a time for muscle-building purposes—the rest is used for fuel or, at this hefty amount, stored in your body as fat.

Nutrition: 1,650 calories, 108 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 3,690 mg sodium, 102 g carbs (8 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 70 g protein
Imagine if a cheesy quesadilla met a jumbo burger…this would be the result. Why have a standard bun when you could have soft flour tortillas enclosing gooey cheese and bits of red bell pepper and onion as the base? This burger packs 108 grams of fat primarily from the mass amount of animal products and byproducts that it contains. If you're wondering just how much grams of fat that is, imagine eating about 12 tablespoons, or more than 2/3 of a cup, of peanut butter in one sitting.Check out What Happens To Your Body If You Eat Peanut Butter Every Day.
