Are Restaurants Healthier Than Fast Food? The Answer May Surprise You...

Is fast food as bad for our health as we think? Well, against all odds is seems that it might not be...

This month the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study that showed that there is not a big difference between fast food and normal restaurant food.

No fewer than 18,098 assessments of American adults between 2003 and 2010 were examined by researchers who linked the type of restaurant to caloric intake. As a result, eating at a fast-food restaurant or in a standard restaurant provides almost the same daily calorie intake (190.29 kcal compared to 186.74 kcal). The same applies to fat consumption, which increases by about 10 grams, cholesterol, which rises to 57.90 mg in restaurants compared to 10.34 mg in fast-food.

The researchers also noted that the further away from home Americans went to eat the more these numbers increased. Whether eating in a fast-food restaurant or in a normal restaurant, the food remains significantly unbalanced compared to a homemade meal.

By preparing your meals at home, you'll save money and your health will thank you too!
