Dr Oz: Healthy Fast Food
You can say in order to lose weight, you’re going to cut out fast food forever, but let’s be truthful. That’s never going to happen, so on today’s show, Dr Oz gave you options to make the fast food a little healthier (while escaping the dirty little Restaurant Secrets). He enlisted the help of Dr. Allan Stewart and Dr. Mathew R. Williams, two heart specialist, and challenged them to find the healthiest fast foods under 500 calories. Could they do it?
Dr Oz: McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets
Who doesn’t love chicken McNuggets? A 6-piece meal only contains 330 calories and18 grams of fat. This is one of the best balances of getting a junk food fix and being healthy. The chicken contains lots of protein and no trans fat. Dr. Williams warned, don’t eat more than 2-3 times per month. You could also go without the sauce and save 50 calories. If you do opt of the sauce, have only 1 packet for the entire 6 nuggets.
