Fast food. No matter is it burgers or tacos, everyone loves to eat just the same. It is really not good at all, but fast food has become a way of life for some people. They even eat it three times per day, that’s because these people make no difference between a steak and Big Mac. If we return back in time, we will see that fas food wasn’t so popular and was expensive as well. There is more to eat as a food, and “yes” we all like to eat a bucket of fried chicken. We have come too dependant on ready serve meals. The mistake is that people really don’t care if there is a meal or a fast food in their frozen box, that’s why we can see why it is appealing to many people, there should be no need for it.
Just a little revelation – spending a good amount of time away from your home could make you eat fast food more often than usual. Getting a good food is kind of impossible, having in mind that you don’t have the time to sit and order such in a good restaurant. This is our lifestyle – we don’t have the time to eat healthy.
But, in this article you will see how you could get a healthy fast food from your local joints.
We are not talking that they are better than the one you would cook on your own, you know that. When you are about to eat, order a burger without cheese and mayo. By doing this you will cut out a lot of fat, sounds strange – but it is something. If the sandwich is too dry for you without all these put ketchup or/and mustard to slide it down easier.
Some of the elements in cheese are oil and other junk. The milk is not the only thing that they put in the cheese. Even some of this product is made from cooking oil and you know that if you are a big fen of it. Also the one that is made from oil has a different look and taste – looks oily and a little bit orange. It will be great if you avoid anything with bacon on it. The bacon in fast food joints is very awful. You will be really happy if you avoid the bacon, because in most of the fast food joints they cook it by putting it under lights and getting it hot. Keep this in your mind, you will see that you can cut out a lot of fat.
Deep frieding sandwiches are another thing you should stay away from.
Know that, don’t you? We are talking about the ones, which have deep fried chicken or fish in them. They are a really bad choice, the process of frying them in fat like this. We recommend to eat chiken any time that you can do it. The chiken items are lower in fat. Anoid chicken sandwich full of mayo or that has been deep fried. But if all chicken items are deep fried, well you can choose some from the burgers they offer.
We could suggest you to substitute french fries for a side salad.
You ask yourself this question: Where is the fun in eating fast food without fries? You can allow some from time to time, but be careful. Don’t make it a habit – eating fries regularly, you should stay away from these tempters. This is also the main thing to keep in your mind. They won’t hurt you, if you eat them from time to time, but eating to mush of them could give you some negative result, and in that case you should cut down a bit on them.
Some fast food joints carries a trend of meatless burgers. It is not 100 % sure that there is a jump in the percent of people who do not eat such meat. It can be, but live near by a college, may be this could be a reason as well. It is a big phase with college kids to be ‘animal friendly’. This is of course until they get older and realize how much more tasty meat is compared to tofu.
The great thing about Subway is, the fat content and the calories are open for all to see. They advertise it all over their store how much the sandwiches contain. You can load up on all kinds of veggies and not even worry about missing cheese or mayo. One way that you can keep the calories low is by drinking water or diet sodas. Personally I hate weight loss diet soda, so I just drink water instead. Ask them if they have any lemon you can squirt into the water. That will give it a crisp taste that you will love and it will keep your mind off of the sodas. Of course you can go with the diet sodas, but to me they are way to sweet.
At any rate, if they have meatless burgers at your local fast food joint, you can try them.
Sometimes they will be less in fat than normal burgers. They might take a while to get used to. I can’t say that I care much for these. I can’t stand how they when you chew them. Just keep in mind just because its meatless, don’t mean you can add one the cheese and mayo. Some of these burgers aren’t THAT lower in fat. My favorite place to go is Subway. Well, any good sub shop will work just fine. You can load up your sandwich with tasty veggies instead of fatty stuff like mayo. I would still suggest that you go with chicken, though at most of these places you can find turkey as well.
There you have it. An easy guide to fast food. The next time you go out to the hamburger joint, keep this article in mind. You can fight this – there are weight loss pills, which can do a lot for you if you want.
