Healthiest Fast Food Restaurants

Some amazingly specific, healthy tips for eating at Taco Bell, McDonalds, and especially big winner Chick-Fil-A!

"To separate the commendable from the deplorable, we calculated the total number of calories per entrĂ©e. This gave us a snapshot of how each restaurant compared in average serving size—a key indicator of unhealthy portion distortion. Then we rewarded establishments with fruit and vegetable side-dish choices, as well as for providing whole-grain options. Finally, we penalized places for excessive amounts of trans fats and menus laden with gut-busting desserts. What we ended up with is the Eat This, Not That! Restaurant Report Card, which will show you how all of the nation’s largest eating establishments stack up nutritionally."

What I want to know is how White Castle ranked!
