Do you know someone on a perpetual diet? Maybe someone at your office who exclusively only eats salads but never loses any weight? Someone who is on the Atkins diet, but it doesn’t work. Even if they aren’t cheating on their diets, the fast food salads they are eating may be the culprit.
Unhealthy Fast Food Salads
What if I told you that a Sasquatch Burger or a bowl french fires drowning in Utah Fry Sauce probably has less calories, fat, carbs and sugar than a Wendy’s Garden Sensations Mandarin Chicken Salad? If you are eating a fast food salad because you think it’s healthy, then you are fooling yourself. Even the best fast food salad might still have more calories, carbs and fat than just a regular burger.

Meg Marco at The Consumerist did a detailed comparison between fast food salads and other fast food menu items like burgers, tacos and wraps. Spoiler alert, you’ll probably lose more weight eating hamburgers than salads.
