Usually, when you think of a salad for lunch you’re thinking at a low-calories meal, but that’s not true for McDonald’s salads. A fast-food salad had more calories, more fat, more carbs and more sugar than a regular fast-food sandwich.
If you compare calories, fat, carbs, sodium and sugar from one salad (dressing included) and one regular sized sandwich (or burrito) from the same fast food, using just the nutritional information provided by the restaurants you can see the difference for yourself.
BK Tendercrisp Chicken Salad and The Whopper Jr.
Asian Salad and Double Cheeseburger
Taco Bell Fiesta Taco Salad and Chicken Grilled Burrito
Wendy’s Garden Sensations Chicken Salad and Double Stack
So is fast-food salad a “diet meal”? You should judge everything you eat by the nutrition info and not by its reputation.
