Which Fast Food is the worst?

So the results are in and KFC has been voted the most unhealthy Fast Food of all. I too voted for KFC, just because you have pockets of oil which squirt out of the chicken with every bite - so its no surprise that they won or rather lost, depending on how you look at it. You can almost feel a heart attack coming on everytime you are done eating it. As much as I think they are the worst, I too eat them from time to time. So I am not saying don’t eat KFC ever again… just eat it with moderation. But I try to avoid their fried chicken as I personally feel that that is the worst and there is no quality control on how unhealthy it is. Their burgers aren’t so bad and doesn’t make you feel like your arteries are getting clogged with every bite.

The second is McD’s followed by the pizza houses. I still think McDs is not too bad as you do have some healthy options, the portions are small and it isn’t as oil soaked as KFC. A healthy choice in McDs would be their Fillet-O-Fish, which actually uses 100% fish and you can actually see it. So if you ask me to make a healthy choice between 2 evils, I would rather choose McDs over KFC.

A&W received no votes which could either mean, people think they are healthy or nobody goes to them at all, so no one bothered voting for them. Besides their root beer float, I honestly think everything else there really sucks. Even their curly fries suck compared to McDs. If you are going to go unhealthy, it has to have taste or else what’s the point of eating it.

Pizza houses aren’t any better, but if you can stick to the thin crust and avoid telling them you want “extra cheese”, it actually cuts down the “unhealthy” factor drastically. Personally I love Domino’s thin crust and every once in awhile when I have no idea what to eat and stumble upon a discount coupon, I will pick it up and use it.

So which ones did you vote for as being the worst and why? Look forward to hearing your comments.

GF: I love the Zinger Max burger as well. Its OK to eat every once in awhile. It only becomes not OK if you decide to eat it everyday.

So enjoy.

lets be frank, we all love KFC. they've got the winning formula to attract their customer to come back, even though we know very well their succulent chicken may not be good for the heart.

did you know they also offer healthier option? the set consist of the breast part, salad (i think), and soya drink. ok maybe its not the healthiest of a meal but chicken breasts are known to have miimum fats on it. never thought i'd say this but these breasts are real turn off for me.

Kerp: Agree with you. KFC is damn good for taste... but only problem is the heart attack factor. I too like to indulge in it every once in awhile.

But if you ask me, if i am going to KFC, i ain't going to eat salad-lah. since i go there so rarely, when i go... i am going to go all out-lah. heheheee

Definitely KFC tops them all ... this is the first thing that I wallop right after my races. Just imagine the crunchiness of H&S, and the releasing of steam off the white juicy flesh of my very first bite .... darn, I'm off to KFC now. Cya.

Rajan said...

CA: man... you make me want to eat KFC tonight itself-lah....

That's it lah... i amm buying KFC for dinner tonight. Zinger Max sounds about right.

Bernard: mana ada gua cakap don't eat the skin. For me, since i eat it rarely, when i eat, i am going to go all out-lah.
