It goes without saying that eating fast food isn’t great for you – but there is a way you can ease the guilt somewhat.
Instead of ordering a burger with fries, it’s healthier to opt for a second burger, according to a nutritionist.
This means you’re quadrupling your protein, which keeps you full for longer, says Emily Field, who is also a registered dietitian in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
So by swapping the fries for a second burger, you could reduce your overall calorie intake for the rest of the day.
Furthermore, you are reducing the amount of carbohydrates you’re consuming. While carbs are important to your health, an excess has been linked to weight gain.
