Everyone loves fast food right? It's the whole American culture thing. We all know how unhealthy fries are, but deeply we just love eating Junk. I remember watching Jamie Olive's Fast Food Nation, and he demonstrate how Chicken nuggets are made by chicken skin, bones, liver, basically other parts of the chicken except for the meat. I was quite turned off for like 1 month, after that I quickly go back to nuggets again. Nuggets are just too tasty!
But, this is a diet blog and I am supposed to give you tips on losing weight. So I am providing some information on the calories count behind common fast food. Hopefully the numbers will scare you off.
(I quit fast food for quite a while. But occasionally 1 or 2 nuggets is still fine IMHO! :P )
All time favourite...
When people ask me how "fat" something is, I always measure food in units of MCD's burger. For example, 1 plate of Hokkien Mee is 2 Filllet Burgers.. etc
