Can Fast Food Be On the Menu While Dieting?

Beth was on a weight loss plan in yet another attempt to get rid of 52 unwanted pounds.

She had tried to do such so many times in her past that she couldn't even count the number of times in which she had failed. All of those attempts - all ending in failure.

Sure, she would go on to lose five, ten and even twenty pounds but the plans were always so restrictive and she unable to enjoy the foods that she liked in her former daily menus.

She missed them; she particularly missed dining out which usually included Taco Bell. But now, that was a thing of the past - at least until she lost these 52 wads of fat.

She used to enjoy the Beef Soft Taco; in fact - it had been her favorite selection on the menu.

However, once the pounds were lost - she had made a promise to herself that she would celebrate in that first week by ordering her old favorite food.

No Need To Wait To Enjoy Fast Food

Beth can enjoy her favorite taco today rather than after her diet ends. Let's look at the nutritional values for this one-food meal. It contains a skinny 210 kcals.

The Beef Soft Taco is also a good source for protein grams, dietary fiber and even contains a splash of calcium benefits along with iron.

The sodium content is a bit high, but in comparison to other commercially prepared fast food tacos, it's lower than most.

Staying on Point With Your Weight Loss Plan
