Does following a weight-loss or healthy diet mean you must avoid fast food? Not necessarily.
An occasional stop for fast food can fit into a healthy diet, if you're careful about what you order.
Consider the following tips:
- Keep portion sizes small
If the fast-food restaurant offers several sandwich sizes, pick the smallest. Bypass hamburgers with two or three beef patties, which can pack close to 800 calories and 40 grams of fat. Choose instead a regular- or children's-sized hamburger, which has about 250 to 300 calories. Skip the large serving of French fries or onion rings, and ask for a small serving instead. This switch alone saves 200 to 300 calories.
