Included in the report card are survival strategies for each chain. For example, if you're hitting up Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Men's Health suggests ditching their "regular hamburger"which is in fact a doublefor "a Little Hamburger." The magazine also warns that the difference between a large and a small order of fries is 1,150 calories.
If you prefer Burger King for your fix, Men's Health says only two choices are worth considering if you're worried about your health and/or waistline: the regular hamburger and the Whopper Jrboth ordered without mayo. Apparently BK smears 160 calories worth of the white stuff "on just about everything."
As for Applebee's? Apparently that chain, more so than others, is a crap shoot when it comes to healthy-ish food choices.
We've tried repeatedly to get Applebee's to cough up the nutritional information on their menu items, but the food mogul refuses to cave. Without full disclosure, we have no choice but to give them a flunking grade.
Check out the full post for the entire list of chain eating tips, and be sure to browse our suggestions on the best and worst foods to eat at McDonald's and Wendy's.
Figured people would want to read this since Fast Food is such a big thing in our lives.
