Fast food tips

Overview

Although not impossible it is more of a challenge to eat healthy when going to a fast food place. In general, avoiding items that are deep fried is your best bet. Healthier choices include sandwiches that can be loaded with vegetables. Limit the extras such as cheese, bacon, and mayonnaise. Eat at places that offer a variety of salads, soups, and vegetables to help maintain your best health.
