Discover how you can eat fast food without weight gain

I am the first to admit that we cannot always be in total control of our diet, travelling extensively globally,  there are many times that I can’t cook and have to eat takeaway.We live in a fast-moving world,  there is a  ready now expectation and fast food is sometimes unavoidable. The best we can do is to be informed and make the best decisions available to us.
You can eat fast food without getting fat, we all know that take away foods can contribute to being overweight, diabetes,heart disease and many other ailments .While some fast foods are healthier than others.Its the amount, frequency, type, beverages and add ons that make you fat. Not to forget unhealthy aswell  due to the lack of nutrient value

I have personally assisted in devising menus for quick service restaurants and believe you me, many of them will sell you what you want as healthy so you buy it when it is not. You have to be the one to take control of your diet, if the item has a chicken schnitzel as the main component, it is most likely deep-fried, therefore a bad choice

It may take as little as just one fast food item or takeaway to meet 50% of  your total fat allowance and exceed your total saturated fat allowance. Most people need around 20-30g of fat per day

If you can just quickly assess if the food contains a good balance of each food group as shown below you will be one step ahead

Wholegrain breads and cereals

Vegetables and fruits

Nuts and seeds

Dairy

Lean meat choices such as chicken and fish

High in fibre

Low in salt

Low or no added sugars in the ingredients list

Made from healthy fats over unhealthy fats ( animal, trans fats, or saturated fats )

HERES A LIST OF THE HEALTHIEST FAST FOODS TO CHOOSE

Chicken of falafel kebabs with salad, tabouli and tahini dressing

Plain steak, grilled chicken or a fish burger without sauce

Sushi, steamed soya beans and miso broth

BBQ Chicken skin removed and salad

Subway ( 6 grams ) 6 inch  multigrain,Ham or Turkey, mustard and salad no sauce

Wholegrain wraps with lean meat, vegetables, salad, avocado spread

Thin and crispy pizza with lean protein, vegetable or salad  topping

Lamb, beef, chicken or fish with peanut satay sauces, add salad

Takeaway Indian or Thai Curries

Forget the meal deal chips, they go straight to the hips

Forget the soft drink , drink water

Always order the small portion sizes

After you have eaten your takeaway you can congratulate yourself, feel good and guilt free about the choice you have made

Well done, One more step to a Happier, Healthier You xx
