Fast food is no friend to your waistline; however, if you want to indulge in such food every now and again, there are ways to make the meal healthier. Use these tips to enjoy fast food without derailing your Phentermine 37.5mg regimen:
Stick To Water
Skip the soda as much as possible to move forward with your weight loss and be healthier in general. Drinking as little as one small soda every week over the course of a year adds 7,800 calories to your diet. Bring water with you instead so you already have a beverage in tow and do not have to purchase bottled water.
Stick to medium and small fast food sizes instead of getting the large or extra-large. You do not need to “supersize” anything, as all you are doing is adding more trans fat, saturated fat, sodium, sugar, and calories to your meal.
Be Smart About The Sides
Avoid French fries, which are loaded with trans fat, as much as possible, whether eating fast food or not. Opt for healthier sides instead, such as salad--but don’t go crazy with the creamy dressing. If you can, skip the side altogether and focus on chewing your sandwich or other meal slowly so you feel fuller for longer.
Read The Labels
Read food labels before you buy--research indicates those who read these labels order fast food on a less consistent basis.
“While I don’t know for sure, my belief is that individuals who care enough to check the ingredients of items before eating them are trying to eat healthier and looking to avoid less healthy options that dominate the menu of fast food restaurants,” says Jay Zagorsky, research scientist at the Center for Human Resource Research at The Ohio State University.
