Convenience is our new found friend in this era. With busy careers and lives eating up most of our day time, fast food restaurants have become choice destinations to get quick dinner.
Few women would have heart to stand before a burning stove to prepare meal for the family after a 10 hour work day. There is no doubt that the fast food restaurants are very convenient but these are by no means best and nutritious meals choices. Given below is an analysis of the most popular fast food meals that we are all always ready to have in dinner:
McDonald’s - Juicy hamburgers with fresh fries sound very tempting and delicious. But when you opt for Double Quarter Pound Cheeseburger and normal sized fries, you would have preferred 1,100 calories and 60 gram of fat and this is minus the drink. If you are following a 2,000 calorie diet, this single meal is equal to half of that allowance.
Kentucky Fried Chicken - This is a very popular choice for those looking for an easy and quick meal. But one piece of chicken breast made with KFC recipe is 360 calories and 21 grams of fat. If you decide to have two chicken breasts that are part of the popular family meal buckets, you will be targeting 720 calories and 42 grams of fat. And this does not count what you will be eating as side dishes such as cheese, macaroni, mashed potatoes or potato wedges.
Pizza Hut Pizza - Pizza delivery is very easy choice for dinner when you are all exhausted and do not have the energy to cook your meal. One large size Pepperoni pan pizza carries about 270 calories per slice and about 14 grams of fat.
When you eat two slices of this pizza, you would have eaten 540 calories and 28 grams of fat. Most of us consume even more calories by adding extra toppings and cheese.
Subway - Most of those eating at Subway think that they are eating a healthy food. But it all depends on which item you choose out of menu. One 6 inch parmessan sandwich has about 500 calories and 18 grams of fat. And this is without any side orders. The calorie count keeps on increasing with every sauce you add to your sandwich.
It is best advised that you keep a safe distance from fast food restaurants but if you can not help it due to any reason of convenience, try to go through the menu on the internet before you go there and and select those menu items which do not destroy your diet plan for the rest of the day.
