Calorie count - fast food

Fast food is easy and available almost everywhere. However, a lot of fast food is loaded with calories, saturated fat, and salt, all things you want to limit in your diet. Yet sometimes you may need the convenience of fast food. You do not have to avoid fast food completely, just need to make healthier choices. Try to include a salad with your meal, but be careful with creamy dressing or fried toppings.

You can find nutrition information for most fast food chains online or in the restaurant. Some fast food chains also have special menu options that are healthier. Use this information to help you make better choices when you choose fast food.

Here is a list of some popular fast food items, their serving sizes, and the number of calories in each.
