I Love Fast Food

I love fast food, but I'm trying to eat more healthily. What things should I avoid?

Eighty-six the cheeseburgers, fried chicken, fried-fish sandwiches, french fries and meat-topped pizzas, says Michael Jacobson, PhD, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington, D.C., and coauthor of Restaurant Confidential (Workman, 2002). One slice of Pizza Hut's Pan Pizza with Italian sausage packs 320 calories and 20 grams of fat; Burger King's Double Whopper with Cheese weighs in at 1,070 calories and 70 grams of fat. But if, alas, your belly's aching for the Golden Arches, control your portions by ordering a small grilled sandwich sans the cheese and sauce but with extra lettuce and tomatoes. Can't live without pizza? "Opt for thin crust and vegetable toppings and you'll save more than 100 calories," says Hope Warshaw, RD, author of Eat Out, Eat Right (Surrey Books, 2003).
