The 30 Worst Fast-Food Restaurant Choices
How to Navigate the Menu
Knowing what you're up against is the first step in conquering restaurant bombs. Arming yourself against the seductive smells, tricked-out menus, heaping plates, and multiple distractions will help you make sane choices. "We have made food into entertainment -- a 'food carnival,'" says Kessler. "Go into a modern American restaurant: the colors, the TVs, the monitors, the music. You do it with your friends. We've taken sugar and added all these multiple levels of stimuli. What do we end up with? Probably one of the great public health crises of our day."
All nutritional information is from the restaurants' online menus, their respective publicists, and/or Men's Health magazine (NYS ordinance/their NYC menu, and the Center for Science in Public Interest).
