    Fast Food Scams

    Please read this important information on Fast Food companies and the calorie / health scams they are running:

    You may not even have a clue as to how many calories are lurking some of those meals you can get at fast food joints. If you are trying to stay at about 1,2000 calories you may get at least 750 of them in one whack. Many people just don*t realize how many calories are in such fast food items. You can look them up online or you can ask about them when you are at the establishment.

    Chances are once you find out what all of the calories compute to you will be less inclined to consume this type of food on a regular basis. It may be fine once in a while but if you are going there a couple of times each week it really is going to affect your health. There have been some fascinating documentaries done on people that each fast food daily for a span of time. You may be interested in watching them to see what it is all about.

    Yet eating fast food doesn*t have to mean you walk away with a meal full of calories. Ask for a grilled chicken sandwich instead of a greasy hamburger. Exchange those high calorie French fries for fruit or for a side salad. You can also choose a drink that isn*t full of empty calories such as water or milk. Making these types of changes can help you keep the calorie count low when you do eat fast food.

    Some fast food chains have made a great deal of money by offering low calorie foods as well. Subway is the most popular one with their low calorie sandwiches piles high with fresh meats and vegetables. However, you do need to be careful as when you add up the calories in the bread, side of chips, and the soft drink they really start to stack up.

    It is important to know the figures though if you continue to eat fast food. Those additional calories can really affect your overall intake. Try to take on smaller portions as well. You don*t need to get the larger drink or fries in order to walk away satisfied. The fact that they are offered though tends to lead people to consume them.

    I've noticed all the fast food companies have been raising prices due to the increase in the minimum wage increase.
