TGI Fridays announced it will offer restaurant goers endless appetizers for a limited time, but with unlimited starters come unlimited calories.

If you say yes to that second round of loaded potato skins, you’ll be consuming nearly 3,000 calories -- way more than your recommended daily calorie limit. Going for three plates? That’s 4,290 calories, double the daily recommended number of calories. Four appetizers? 5,720.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, females between 19 and 50 years old should consume a total of 1,800 to 2,000 calories daily while the recommended amount for males of the same age is 2,200 to 2,400.

TGI Fridays announced its new “Endless Appetizer” deal Monday. The bottomless summer promotion, which runs through Aug. 24, offers all-you-can-eat appetizers for $10 per person. The only catch is diners can only receive unlimited refills on one appetizer selection of their choosing. Customers can share, but the restaurant chain does not recommended sharing.

"We're not going to slap someone's hand if they reach over and share someone else's mozzarella sticks,” TGI Fridays chief marketing officer Brian Gies told USA Today. "No one should be embarrassed for coming into Fridays and ordering whatever they want to order.”

But should a person be embarrassed for consuming this many calories, all for the price of $10? Below is how many calories are in each of TGI Fridays' appetizers based on nutritional information publicly available on the chain’s Web site and how many calories are in multiple orders.
