|Summary:|| The lunch hour calls most Americans to the drive-thru lane or to the dining area of a well-known fast food restaurant. Knowing what or what not to eat can be very tricky because most menu items are high in fat, calories, and sodium. This video offers tips for making wise fast food choices, including specific ways to cut fat and calories, and steps for adding complex carbohydrates and fiber. It introduces some new lighter foods offered by many fast food chains. It also gives a comparison of leading fast food items: burgers, fries, chicken, pizza, and breakfast foods. An excellent program for those who want to eat a healthy, balanced diet but continue to find themselves trapped in the fast food lane.
