TAKING A LOOK AT FAST FOOD NUTRITION
« on: April 21, 2009, 04:47:02 PM »
Is there something more practical and convenient than driving thru a fast food joint for breakfast just before work? Do you agree that fast foods are God's answer to those who don't have the time (and know-how) to prepare home-cooked meals? Don't you just love the fact that your favorite Bacon Mushroom Melt and Coke float is just a call away?

Fast foods have invaded the homes, the offices and even the schools, to replace the home-cooked meals. But are they as healthy as they are convenient? This might get others to think. But for some, fast foods may not really be healthy, but who cares? It's better than skipping meals when you're really loaded on work in the office, or when you're running late for school. Awareness of the fast food nutrition content has taken a backseat because people all agree that it can help them more than it can destroy them.

Fast food nutrition has been in constant focus as one of the possible reasons for increasing number of overweight children. Kids who'd rather have a Happy Meal for lunch than mom's specialty recipe is a familiar situation in the homes. Sometimes children feel like eating home-cooked meals is a punishment and a trip to Wendy's or McDonald's is their parole. While this may not sound seriously damaging, frequent trips and fast food nutrition may finally take its toll on them.

Fast foods are not the devils. We can actually make them work for us by being aware of the fast food nutrition content. A regular-sized burger may be considered instead of the big one. Supersizing your fries and soda may be not be too wise as it will increase your calorie intake than what is required for a single meal. Smart choices may still not make fast food nutrition as healthy as the food we prepare at home, but these will definitely not make villains out of the fast foods either.

Parents whose children think that home-cooked foods are nasty, should resort to learning more exciting dishes to prepare at home. Your menu of five specialties may have finally become too predictable to their taste buds. By preparing your own pizza, you may be serving something that Pizza Hut is offering but with a modified fast food nutrition content. Putting on a bit less cheese or meat might still interest your kids, same way a take-out pizza would.

Fast food nutrition is not at all lame. Some of these joints offer low fat low calorie foods like salads and healthier choices of sandwiches as well. Varying your food choices and limiting the serving sizes when making fast food trips will make fast food nutrition healthier than perceived.

Agreed but its better cos fast food increases the rate of cancer (cancerous) especially fried ones and also it's not advisible to be taken by the obese.

Fast foods should be eaten for a while and not everyday. Too much of anything is bad.

But majority especially bachelors are addicted to fast food and are helpless at it. So, these people can't do without it and u found out that they consume it daily 24/7 regardless of the side effects. The question is, how do we convince them about its consequences?

Fast foods are not cheap, i don't see how someone can eat it 24/7.
Been a bachelor is no excuse, they can just make a big cook and only need to warm it for some days to eat.
That's what i do, i'm also a bachelor and i eat a balance diet with fruits and vegetables.

U don't assume everyone to be like or have u forgotten that some of them are so indolent that at the end of the day's work they prefer going to resturant to chill out so u found out that the only food they can prepare at the comfort of their home is beverages, indomie to name but a few. Not that they don't cook but it's occasional especially on sundays.

prince i think is good for someone to be a vegetarian because vegetables and fruits are natural foods which enriches and replenish the body systems. i think we should visit fastfoods if possible once in a month,because it's hard to find natural foods in fast food joints these days and what these fast food places cook are mainly composed of  fatty components which are not good for the body. i think vegetarian is the best option for prolonged life.

We're not saying that fruits and vegetables are not the best to consume afterall they are the cheapest commodity in the market but the problem is buying those natural things and prepare them by yourself. But some bachelors find it difficult to cook and keep to the so called balanced diet by knowing the content of their meal that's why when some of them after travelling to visit their parents, they come back adding weight and when u ask them, they will always say that they went to eat "mdma thank ma".

If you are addicted to fast food, that means you need Coffee too.
These fast food form some radicals in the body which is the main cause of Aging.
The Coffee can neutralise Those.
BUT IN ALL THIS, AFTER VEGETARIANS (difficult to be) IT'S MAMA-PUTARIANS

@boro that's correct but you can avoid eating these fatty foods found in fast food joints by becoming a vegetarian which will increase the longevity of a person.

Regularly eating fast food is not good for our health.  fast food restaurants are adding salads to their maximum menus, specially between a burger, chicken and fish sandwich.
