Fast Vs. Fancy Restaurants
It’s hard to keep track of calorie consumption when you eat at a restaurant. Your macros can tip out of balance pretty easily, too. Consider a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition comparing the eating habits of adult Americans at fast food and full-service restaurants.
Analyzing data from 18,098 adults participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 2003 and 2010, researchers estimated a net increase of 190.29 calories with 10.61 more grams of fat and 297.47 more mg of sodium for fast food dining. Full-service restaurants didn’t fare much better with 186.74 more calories added to the daily diet along with 9.58 grams of fat and an additional 411.92 mg of sodium.
