Yesterday we discussed the healthiest choices to make if you find that you have no alternative to eating fast food. This week, we cover four nutritional pitfalls to avoid when eating at a fast-food restaurant.

1. Opt out of cheese and condiments such as mayonnaise and tartar sauce, which can add unnecessary (and unhealthy) types of fat. Use mustard or vinegar to add flavor as desired.

*

2. Avoid anything deep-fried. From chicken to potatoes to onions, deep-fried foods contain altered fats that are pro-inflammatory and detrimental to the body.

*

3. Skip the soda – it has no nutritional value and adds unnecessary calories to an already nutritionally challenged meal. Order plain water instead.

*

4. Avoid desserts. There are more than enough calories in fast food; there’s no need to add a sugary finale.
