I still like fast food and even though I avoid it at almost all costs I will still fall pretty hard for a side of fries.
Lately I have been able to avoid fast food altogether by making sure that I plan dinners with my wife more often and better.
Fast Food Nutrition Facts
Here is a great big huge page of nutritional info on the foods sold by almost all of the fast food outlets in the country
Looking at the list will make you even more aware of the bad choices in fast food takeout. Not only are the calories high but there is always a lot of sodium and of course all of these foods are heavily processed with a lot of additives.
I always think that the average person should only be eating about 1500 calories a day so when I see a list like this I try to see how how large a an average meal would be. If you were to eat 1000 calories in a meal it would be terrible (this would be a very bad and big meal) but…
If you look at these you can see that according to this list it would not be difficult at all.
The other thing that is hard to count but should be pretty clear by now to most people is the lack of micronutrients in fast food. when you deep fry everything it turns into the food quality of candy. There are no vitamins and minerals left from the potato after you slice and dice and fry the crap out of it.
