THE FIREFIGHTER'S WORKOUT
Fast Food, Not Fat Food
We can continue to kid ourselves and vow never to eat another fast food meal again, and really, this time mean it, get real! We're hungry and in a hurry, and lets face it; crave those hot, salty fries and great tasting burgers. We give in, devour these conveniently quick served value meals from the local fast food joint found on every other corner, and with in minutes, satisfaction.
Then it hits you. How many calories, how much fat, and we do this every time we go to the mall, (we know shopping and lunch go hand and hand) and every time cooking seems to become a undesirable task. How do we allow that seducing aroma and instant gratification take over again?
Restaurants finally get a clue
Luckily, over the past few years, fast food restaurants finally got a clue. They now offer some healthier, yet tasty alternatives; grilled chicken sandwiches, broiled burgers, delicious salads, and pitas stuffed with fresh vegetables. Life in the fast food lane doesn't have to lead to fat city. Armed with some knowledge and a little willpower, we can put our best fork forward, and enjoy the luxury of fast food, without it making us fat.
Eating a meal or two at Burger King, (which by the way is my favorite), or Taco Bell, (which is my other favorite), isn't going to hurt all that much. But if you want to reduce the fat, calories, and guilt that come with such indulgences, make better choices.
Have it the healthy way
There really are no surprises. We all know the menus. If you're on the go, don't have time to prepare your own healthy food, or just want something quick to satisfy your hunger, careful choices can make all the difference.
