We all know how unhealthy fast food can be but some people still eat it. Personal trainers, nutritionists, dietitians and other health professionals are constantly fighting a losing battle in recommending the average person to eliminate fast food from their diets.
Fast food can often be high in saturated fat, salt and kilojoules (or calories), and low in fibre, vitamins and minerals. Therefore, excessive consumption of fast food can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
We’ve put together a Fast Food Guide, which looks at the menus of the three biggest fast food chains in Australia (McDonald’s, Hungry Jack’s and KFC). Hopefully the guide will allow you to make “healthier” choices should you decide to eat at these unhealthy restaurants.
