Thai Express Chicken Pad Thai worse than 4 McBurgers!
I like eating this but will definitely make it more of a once in a while thingy...good thing I am bringing my lunch more and more...
The chicken pad Thai has 1,131 calories, 40 grams of fat and 2,594 mg of sodium.
The 1,131 calories is more than double the amount that should be consumed in one meal, especially considering this is an on-the-go lunch. A 1,000-calorie meal could be overlooked if it were a luscious, multi-course special occasion dinner. This is just a container of noodles.
The 40 grams of fat is more than half of what the average person should consume in one day, while the 2,594 mg of sodium is 175 per cent more than the recommended daily allotment.
“You could eat four burgers from McDonalds and still have consumed fewer calories and less fat and sodium than what’s found in this meal,” says Crocker. “You could also eat four grilled chicken wraps from Cultures and consume fewer calories, half the fat and 700 mg less sodium.”[/QUOTE]Source: http://www.healthzone.ca/health/dietfit ... rgers?bn=1
