But not all fast food is so unhealthy and it depends on what you prefer. We recommend you to avoid these top 3 drive-thru food:
Worst Drive-thru Breakfast
Big Breakfast containing large biscuit and hotcakes with syrup by McDonald’s. It has over 1,300 calories, 60 g of fat and 50 g of sugar.
This breakfast could be compared with 2 Sausage by McGriddles on containing saturated fat, 6.5 large portions of french fries on sodium, 3.5 Hot Apple Pies on sugar and 3 Double Cheeseburgers on calories. Eggs are the best food for breakfast, but it becomes unhealthy when flanked pancakes, sausage and buttermilk biscuit are added.
Much greater way to start your day is Egg McMuffin with Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfait by McDonald’s with its 460 calories, 14 g of fat and 24 g of sugar. The key point is to find snacks with low sugar and high protein and fiber.
