10 Healthiest Fast Foods

10 Healthiest Fast Foods

Are you a fast food junkie?  I could go on and on and tell you all the reasons to simply STOP eating crap.  But I realize that budget, time and convenience out way the nutrition based and health reasons for many people.  So, if I can’t get you to stop putting fast food in your body, can I at least help you make better decisions?

Here are the best of the worst on fast food menus.  If you trade the soda for water, pack a piece of fruit every day and then choose from one of these options, I believe you will be significantly improving your health and on a path to losing weight.  If you eliminate the soda (even if it is diet) and drink more water you will be making an enormous leap in improving your health.  You will see it in your skin and waistline.    When you choose one of these options at the fast food restaurant, order simple.  No meal packs and no extras.  Use mustard and hot sauces to spice up the flavor.  And, here is my final tip and it is a good one:  20-30 minutes before lunch, right as you begin to get hungry, eat the piece of fruit you packed for the day.  It can be an apple, pear, orange, berries, banana, etc.. (avoid the melons if possible). You will be less hungry and will order less!

  • I often eat fruit before a meal - I'm a vegetarian and eat lots of them anyway. It's a great way to take the edge off.

    Why no melon - does it have to do with it not mixing well with other foods in your system?

  • Great list, but I agree the fast food should be avoided completely.

  • The sea food with high fibers and juices of fruits prevent the problems caused by Varicose Veins Treatment.

    Are you looking to lose weight? You have likely set goals for yourself and have specific areas on your body that you would like to improve. However, one of the most common misconceptions when it comes to weight loss is that you can point to an area of your body and work to lose weight in an exact location on your body. But your body is not designed to respond that way. The good news is you can tone and strengthen a specific area. syeda
