    “Men’s Health” Stamp of Approval: First It Was Chocolate Milk, Now It’s Fast Food Burgers with Trans Fats

    How much stock would you put in a nutrition expert who suggested you drink chocolate milk and eat fast food burgers?  What if I told you this expert was nationally renowned as a trusted source of nutrition information, often appearing on television and radio as someone worth listening to?  Sadly, this is not just a hypothetical situation.

    Last week, I was flabbergasted when I came across a hyperbolic article by Men’s Health editor-in-chief David Zinczenko’s that painted chocolate milk as one of the absolute best things you can drink for your health, weight, and muscle mass.  This past weekend, I had another “you have GOT to be joking!” moment, thanks to a question tweeted to me by @matchmia.  The question: “what do you think of Hardee’s new turkey burger endorsed by Men’s Health?”.  Wait — what!?!

    In The News: Poor, Innocent McDonald’s

    The January 2008 issue of Reason magazine includes a controversial article on the “unfair” double standards suffered by fast food restaurants.

    According to author Greg Beato, McDonald’s and other greasy food meccas bear the brunt of unhealthy offerings and public health policies despite even worse fare available at some local mom ‘n pop stores or delis.

    Before America fell in love with cheap, convenient, standardized junk food, it loved cheap, convenient, independently deep-fried junk food,” writes Beato.

    While it is true that so-called traditional “American” fare consists of hamburgers, hot dogs, and apple pie, fast food restaurants take traditional comfort food and turn it into an artery-clogging equation.

    Think about the following. McDonald’s originally only offered one size of fries — the 250-calorie version currently found inside a Happy Meal!

    These companies have chosen to inflate their portions to such a degree that we now have four beef patties, eight strips of bacon, and six slices of cheese in between two buns.

    You can get 2 liters of soda in a cup or, in the case of Hardee’s new breakfast burrito, a day’s worth of fat first thing in the morning.

    A large order of McDonald’s fries will set you back 800 calories (and provide 400% of the recommended maximum intake of trans fats for one day!)

    Additionally, fast food chains are basically accessible any place at any time. More locations are increasingly keeping their doors open 24 hours a day, and a road trip down any major (or not so major) highway in the United States reveals a landscape littered with Domino’s, KFC, Wendy, Burger King, and more.

    And while delis offer their share of fat-laden bombs, truly healthy choices are available. In the case of fast food establishments, it is always about choosing the “lesser of the evils.”

    What do you think?
