2) The healthy breakfast meal I created from Tim Horton’s is far more nutritious than the unhealthy meal. The healthy meal includes a mixed berry smoothie with yogurt, oatmeal with fruit, and yogurt with berries. All of the items have a moderate and ideal calorie count, that adds up to five hundred calories. On the other hand, the products from the unhealthy breakfast, a Boston cream donut, a BELT sausage bagel, and a French vanilla cappuccino, have an unsettling amount of calories that total up to one thousand sixty. The sum of calories for the unwholesome breakfast equals about half of the daily recommended quantity.
Forget about deep fry. Of course it's not smart to remove everything we love from our diets just because it's not healthy, but moderation is key. Make healthy food 80% of your weekly intake, and leave 20% for some treats like piece of pizza, wine, or a cake. Switch some foods for their healthier versions: learn how to make healthy pizza, with cauliflower crust. Replace your potatoes with cauliflower too.
Fast food restaurants also do not list accurate calorie information, or do not list them at all. “One company 's web site lists its chicken salad as containing 150 calories; the almonds and noodles that come with it (an additional 190 calories) are listed separately. Add a serving of the 280-calorie dressing, and you 've got a healthy lunch alternative that comes in at 620 calories. But that 's not all. Read the small print on the back of the dressing packet and you 'll realize it actually contains 2.5 servings.
There are lots of calories and high amount of fat found in the skin. Eating a small piece of skin can give your body up to 70 calories. So I recommend the people who usually eat packaged slices to buy an organic white turkey (organic white turkey is raised organically and have been treated humanely) and roast it properly, but still, be aware that the skin may contain lots of fat. Since turkey contains an acid called tryptophan, it may make you sleepy if you ate too much of it. But generally, tryptophan doesn't have a big impact unless you are eating it with an empty stomach, or you are eating it too much that the drumstick inside your body can't handle.
In just one meal at a fast food restaurant, it is easy to eat 1,500 calories. Many fast food restaurants have tried to offer healthier options, such as salads or grilled chicken instead of fried, but this still is not accounting for the rest of the calories in a meal. A meal usually consists of an entrée, a side, and a drink. At most restaurants it is an option to buy a different side or a larger drink. A Bacon Deluxe Double at Wendy’s is 880 calories alone, then add in the fries and the drink.
Apple slices are one of the healthiest meal choices served at fast-food restaurants today, but only upon request of the customer. Instead the customer is automatically supplied with greasy trans-fat filled French fries. (Tucker,Charlotte) If the fast-food companies would give the apple slices as the standard the America Public Health Association (APHA) pronounced (affa) says that meals would be much healthier. APHA is a research company solely dedicated to studying health factors of food and the health of the individual who consumes the product. With three out of every five people in the United States obese or over weight, partly due to the very unhealthy options served at these fast-food restaurants.
In the article Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control by explains by Sperber, he explains, “McDonald 's is currently following growth leader Wendy 's with extensions of its EveryDay value menu, most recently testing 20 items under $1”( pg 1).this quote helps the understanding that fast food is cheap,because you can order over 20 items off the dollar menu. This is a lot cheaper than getting a salad because, there are no salads on the dollar menu. In the article Healthy Choices Can Make A Difference by Mariah Johnson, she states, “Lower-income families are more likely to eat unhealthy fast food because fresh fruits and vegetables are usually expensive, while refined grains and sugar products are cheaper”(pg 1). This quote shows that the prices of fast food causes obesity because fast food is cheap, and family that don 't have enough money are more likely to eat fast food. If fast food restaurants made healthier items, or salads at a lower price, the world 's obesity rate would decrease
They would prefer to buy a big mac at a fast food restaurant. According to Eric Schlosser, “The typical American now consumes approximately three hamburgers and four orders of french fries every week.” That is approximately 2,570 calories in one sitting. This surpasses a normal caloric intake of 2,000 calories. This is why the United States obesity rates are so high. If americans incorporate a meal plan, they can automatically reduce their chances of being obese.
Greek yogurt fruit If you want to lose a few pounds, this may just be the perfect breakfast. Each layer of nectarine, plum, nuts, yogurt, puffed rice - provides a healthy weight loss fiber or protein does. Hey, this 5-minute dish is enough because the Greek yogurt is thicker than the average low-fat yogurt and the cream is more satisfying. Black Bean and Chicken Chilaquiles This traditional Mexican breakfast food requires only eight ingredients, including chicken, mayonnaise, and tortillas. May seem guilty but due to roast (not fried) each time no more than 300 calories and 2 grams of saturated fat.
With a fast food restaurant like McDonalds on every corner weight gain is a... ... middle of paper ... ...s because I, myself am guilty of purchasing and consuming these meals. Yes these meals are often greasy and loaded with salt or sugar, but please note that anything, if ate in moderation, is ok for the average human being In the way society is heading, moderation is the way to go. Take heed of my advice. Works Cited Aiden, Anton. “Effects of High Blood Pressure from Fast Foods.” Livestrong.
