Hello welcome to help -- I'm -- demanding as more and more people are looking -- nutritious meal.
In the drive through lane many fast food companies are pushing salads oatmeal and other seemingly healthy choices however.
Many items are far from healthy join me today is dietitian -- -- sellers.
From the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to help you understand we -- mostly healthy fast -- are actually.
Nutrition -- nightmare.
Are they really -- matter -- they taste delicious.
They actually are Dr.
Manny they market these foods is healthy.
But when you look at the nutritional content they have more fat and sodium -- one should.
Eaton retired but -- so why are we seeing this shift in trend is in now it seems that he -- look at all of these companies.
They they are trying to give you more healthy options at least as safe they're giving you more healthy options and you see that in -- -- -- that when you go there then so probably really going in the right direction.
I feel they're getting there they are going in the right direction by trying to offer these healthy options but they need to actually offer any given a for effort.
But you're not great in them too well on the actual items they're providing precisely.
Now this this committee that you work for is a nonprofit Washington DC tell me a little bit about that when that went on the equaling.
You know according to your guys' definition what is -- healthy items that.
Well I work for and a nonprofit groups that Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine based -- -- Washington DC.
And our whole model for healthy diets -- are composed of about four food groups and that means they -- Fruits vegetables and whole grains and if you can staple the diet.
Around those food groups -- all the very low fat -- -- fibers that can protect with many different diseases that.
We see in America today but actually -- -- group is really not trying to just eliminate fast foods whole deal altogether.
No we're not trying to limit fast and I think they're here they're going to be here for awhile but we want to influence the public that the healthy choices that they -- out.
Are not actually healthy -- one influences these.
Fast food chains to actually offer a good option now you guys you guys have and five top worst foods.
That are available out there threat and I have the list this is like a feel of the Academy Awards.
The nominees for worst food all -- -- Let's -- about one -- you have.
Wendy's Bob -- out a threat to Wendy's Baja salad you say that that's not that good.
I don't think so by just looking at -- UC have fried tortilla chips Yemeni based -- -- afford okay go ahead.
You have -- you have three different types of cheeses -- -- you just have all this fat topped onto a few sprigs of leaves.
And the leaves are great we want to see more of them but.
Something better and you Joseph look at is as the greens as salads as a little tomato -- it looks pretty icy a lot of people if fox -- -- that.
And that's how when these markets the salad as a healthy option.
Has an illegal thing that's as calorie what you said has a lot of calories as 47 grams of fat nineteen grams of saturated fat and the American.
Heart association says nobody should consume more than our entire day -- so we got our first winner there that the windy -- there.
The second -- you have is McDonald's fruit and maple oatmeal.
How more delicious could that be this one right here this -- so deceptive I mean you think oatmeal at half past and now we're finally on.
So my neighbor -- fiber and -- they're doing a good job but it did you know that has the same amount of sugar.
As a snicker as -- a beautiful delicious fruit.
I would hope that McDonald's can make sell me on fruit -- just on the front side they had a bunch of sugar and how much are trained so much how much how much total sugar does -- have 32 grams of sugar is that what what -- Snickers bars just about that's more than instincts are having a Snickers bar for breakfast.
What you see that you guys are learning a lot.
All right is the third and it subway's fresh fit six inch Turkey breast sub.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It makes it really that what are they call it fresh fit.
I don't know I believe it's that help us feel like we're getting a -- sandwich when really it's -- pilot -- They KFC Kentucky grilled chicken.
-- grilled chicken is beautiful.
Has to be better than fried chicken.
Basically this chicken has fit in -- a had a sickly and means a fancy way of saying it's a known carcinogen so not only are getting grilled chicken with their meal but we're getting increased risk of some types of cancer as well.
That's missing is a little toxic don't quote absolutely doable with a good I don't -- -- when eight out.
We have the Carl's junior low carb six dollar burger you don't like that one either.
Yet we what do you like -- -- -- low carb -- have been going on for years and I think it's very apparent that low carb diets.
They might -- to lose -- but there's so -- that increase the risk of heart disease some studies show that.
God so piles of -- killing me here and now you that you don't like to tackle bell -- -- regional supreme chicken.
Now I don't like that talk about chicken fresco supreme -- but if you get a veggie fresco burrito it's with beans and hold that she is.
Bringing down the sodium -- on the fat very -- -- you just elected to meet the chicken part of the Bruno.
Precisely the need is fiber listen and doesn't offer many nutrients from -- -- wanna go that you style.
Absolutely and then finally.
Which I think we have is the burger king's.
Tendered grilled chicken salad.
This one here this looks -- my friend and I see -- carrots I see a lot of stuff they're beautiful piece chicken perhaps a little more colorful in the -- -- -- -- but again I talked about the grilled chicken we know it's a component.
That increase the risk of some cancers.
And its top at the ranch and sheets and ranches and the best dressing -- so so I can see everybody very annoying on their TV and a you know you we -- we gave a whole bunch of things that you don't like in the committee doesn't like -- Washington DC because you're you're explaining it very well high in sodium high in fat.
High in calories many times so if I'm a consumer.
And I got to eat fast food because I'm working I don't have a lot of time.
So what am -- looking for in the menu and what should I ask -- Either to change to -- or to delete what ever is that people are selling out industry.
When every Cali say hold the cheese thing you've got to talk about something like that she's very full of fat saturated fat so -- talk about try to get -- bean burrito.
They have a suddenly a real hold the cheese hold sour -- So -- -- that I think the big message is you know check out the calories check out the cholesterol.
Check out the sugars that you did you know that you -- all these fast food because ultimately you do it every day.
Than they do bill.
Absolutely and it and they do offer that nutrition facts at the restaurant so.
Not people read on our us they won't be having these items but I think it's a good idea right.
But it will thank you so much you really depressing today.
Think that that makes it.
I -- the other -- questions you can email me Arafat said doctor may have Fogg who's on top.
Thanks for watching for Fox News I'm -- to man.
