5. There’s no such thing as healthy fast food
We know fast food isn’t good for us, and this is something the industry doesn’t want us to think about too much. Even their “healthy” offerings are often loaded with calories, trans-fats and refined sugar.
- McDonald’s California Cobb Salad with Crispy Chicken packs a whopping 18 grams of fat, almost 28% of the recommended daily value of 65 grams in a 2,000 calorie diet. That’s as much as a Quarter Pounder!
- Add a pack of Newman’s Own Creamy Caesar Dressing and you’re doubling the total fat of the salad, bringing it up to 36 grams—over half our recommended daily intake. In a salad.
- Just because something’s in a little packet doesn’t mean it’s safe, and sauces are particularly bad. McDonald’s 1.5oz pack of Spicy Buffalo Sauce is 60 calories (all from fat), plus 910mg of sodium – 38% of your recommended daily intake.
