Healthy Fast Food?
February 2, 2014, 11:10 am

When is it healthy to eat fast food?

The short answer is: rarely. Typically, fast food is low in nutrition and high in trans fat, saturated fat, sodium, and calories.

One side order of ‹potato snackers› for example, contains 10 grams of very unhealthy trans fat. The American Heart Association recommends we consume less than 2 grams of trans fat per day. So in one side order, youíve just eaten more than five daysí worth of heart-busting trans fat.

A single meal of a Double Whopper with cheese, a medium order of fries, and an apple pie contains more saturated fat than the American Heart Association recommends we consume in two days.
