Fast Food Nutrition

Are healthy choices getting easier?

By now it should be no surprise that fast food is not something that you should eat on a regular basis. High fat content and basically no nutritional value make frequent fast-food meals a caloric and fat nightmare to say the least.

We are in a country where the obesity rates just keep growing, and fast-food establishments have been feeling the pinch. Fast-food chains take advantage of the lack of time the average person has to prepare and eat healthier food choices. Many people just don’t have the time or energy to prepare something that’s always healthy – take families with both parents working full-time to make ends meet or students in college who work, for example. People just take the fast way out by choosing to zip to the drive-thru. However there are ways that restaurants have tried to improve on your fast-food order. But is it enough?

Salads Added to the Menu

Fast-food restaurants added salads to their menus so patrons were not always forced to choose between a burger, chicken or fish sandwich. Chicken and fish are good for you, but not encased in a crunchy, fatty, deep-fried batter. Patrons who were looking to be healthy could now tag along, pick up a salad and eat better.

What those patrons don’t consider when ordering the salad is that the ingredients used within can actually add up to a higher daily intake of fat and calories than the burger. The nutritional information for many of the salads contain double-digit fat content, one-quarter to one-third of your daily caloric intake and over half the recommended sodium intake per day. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like what I would expect from a salad.

Adding to the problem is the dressing that comes with it. Dressings just add more calories to the salad that already contains more than enough calories. Most people won’t eat a salad without dressing, which is understandable, but they might not be aware that many of those salads already have an excess of fat and calories before the dressing is even drizzled on top. Take a look at the nutritional information for yourself to see if that is really what you thought you were getting. There is a good chance it is probably more than you thought.

Also check to see if they include the calories from the dressing within the salad nutritional information. Restaurants can avoid listing the added condiments, such as dressing, if they don’t actually put it on for you. Customers who add the dressing can find the nutritional information on the packet.

Get Rid of the Supersize

For a little extra money you can get a bigger order of fries and a bigger drink your standard burger combo. Welcome to the supersize, the order feature that has been villainized for adding double the calories, salt and sugar – for less! Eliminating that option was thought to be good since it kept customers from eating more of the bad. What most people don’t realize is that patrons can s...
