How to Survive a Fast Food Restaurant

We all try to eat healthy.

But let’s face it – we’re going to end up at fast-food restaurants from time to time.

Maybe we’re on a trip… or are just crunched for time… and that drive-through starts looking awfully good.

Believe it or not, ordering food at a fast-food restaurant doesn’t have to be a disaster for your health.

Here are some simple things you can do to make sure you’re picking the healthiest choices available. 

Dr. Scott Olson’s Tips for Surviving a Fast-Food Trip:

  • Forget Cheap: The dollar menu is usually the worst food to choose, and features foods with the most sugar and preservatives.
  • Forget the SuperSize: Extra fries and a large soda will not save you money–especially when you consider that bypass operation will cost you more than the 20 extra cents the nice clerk is suggesting you pay.
  • Go Green: While salads at fast food restaurants are not the best, they also aren’t the worst and have been getting better over time. Dressing can be a land mind of sugar and preservatives, so take it easy.
  • Water: Sugar is what you want to avoid, the best you can. You find sugar in the drinks, the shakes, and the desserts. Drink only water or coffee.
  • Have it Your Way: If there is one thing fast food restaurants are great at, it is service and giving you what you want. Choose grilled chicken without breading or a meat patty.
  • Think Paleo: While there are many things about the Paleo diet I disagree with, many restaurants now cater to people on these diets. Paleo is eating mostly greens and meat. For instance, you can get a hamburger in a lettuce bun.

Health and Happiness,

P.S. If you’re eating at those fast-food restaurants too frequently, you can be sure you’re deficient in lots of key vitamins and minerals. One of the easiest ways to fix that is by supplementing daily with a superfood blend. I use Spectrum Elite from my partners at Gold Leaf Nutritionals. You can claim your RISK-FREE bottle here.
