The Fast Food Diet

Written by Diet Bites


What's on the Fast Food Menu?

Fast food has become part of the American way of life. It fits into our busy schedules, it's fast, it's tasty and although it gets a bad wrap for the most part, fast food really can be an option for dieters.

The following calorie-wise selections may not be perfect when it comes to fat and carb content, but they are true nuggets for those calorie counters.

We want to make it clear that Diet Bites isn't promoting a fast-food way of life, but the calorie-wise choices below may help dieters keep a lid on calories without blowing their diet plan when they find a need to do fast food from time-to-time.

We also have calorie and nutritional listing for hundreds of menu items for the fast food establishments below that we'll highlight at the end of this article.

Keep in mind that calorie-content isn't an exact science.

Whenever a restaurant amends the recipe or decreases the size of the menu item, nutritional values are changed. In addition, calorie content is effected by the methods used for determining calories, as well as the feed fed to the animal or plant in order to produce the final menu item.
