WebMD offers a fast food quiz you should try

Eating away from home is definitely a battle if you’re trying to watch salt, fat and sugar consumption.

WebMD recently sent me an e-newsletter that focused on eating out and trying to find the least unhealthy options at a variety of fast food outlets. I blogged about one story in it looking at fast food alternatives. You can read my post by clicking here.

The Quizno's meatball sub, a salt bomb if ever there was one.

This post provides a link to a fast food quiz in that same newsletter. Take it by clicking here. 

The quiz will likely surprise you, it certainly surprised me. I study fast food options intensely, so thought I knew all about that realm. This quiz is a good reminder that there are hidden calories and hidden fat everywhere, often in items where you least expect it. 

Eating away from home is definitely a battle if you’re trying to watch salt, fat and sugar consumption.

Check my eating out page for some relatively healthy alternatives I’ve found.

And remember, even if you opt for a salad, get as little on it as possible in terms of anything fried, breaded or salted, and bring your own oil and vinegar packets to avoid using dressings that are loaded with sugar, salt and fat.
