Takeaway Truth is an occasional Lifehacker feature where we compare marketing images to what you actually get served. More often than not, the discrepancy is striking. Here are the best and worst examples of 2018.

September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day. That's right; the humble cheese slice and beef patty encased in a bun has its own food holiday. Even if you're on a strict diet, you need to partake in one cheeseburger today. It's the law.
At Lifehacker, we consider every day of the year to be International Burger Day. But May 28 is the official day of celebration for burger connoisseurs. To make the occasion, we've assembled some of our tastiest burger posts for you to snack on. Whether you want to know how to make your own McDonald's special sauce or revisit the colon-throttling horror of the "Colonel's McWhopper", you'll find it all here.
Dear Lifehacker, McDonald's and Hungry Jack's both claim that their premium burgers are made from Angus beef. From my understanding, this is just a breed of cow rather than a special cut of meat. Do different types of cow really have unique tastes or is this just a marketing gimmick used to bump up the price of burgers?
Burgers aren't always a bad choice for lunch or dinner. Depending on the sauce and toppings used, they can sometimes be healthier than takeaway salads. (No, really.)
However, some options are obviously worse than others - and the potential damage to your waistline is considerable.
Takeaway Truth is an occasional Lifehacker feature where we compare fast food advertisements to cold, hard reality. While a little "artistic licence" is to be expected, sometimes the differences between the poster and the real thing are ridiculous. Today, we take a look back at some of the worst offenders of all time. Look upon Ronald McDonald's works, and despair.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with having an occasional fast food blow-out. Some would even argue that it's good for the soul. However, there are some menu items that are definitely best avoided; especially if you're trying to lose weight. With that in mind, here are the unhealthiest products from each of Australia's major fast food chains. (You may be surprised to learn that Subway "beat" McDonald's.)
In recent years, the world's leading fast food franchises have been making a concerted effort to provide healthier eating options to customers. With salad bowls, grilled chicken and low-carb wraps on the menu, the takeaway chains of today look quite different to their '80s predecessors...And yet, there are still plenty of worryingly fat-filled meals on the menu. We trawled through the nutritional info on KFC's, Hungry Jack's and McDonald's websites to bring you the five worst offenders. (If you're watching your weight, these meals are definitely best avoided!)
