The 5 Worst Fast Food Meals for Men

Sometimes, when you cruise, you lose. Next time you’re zipping down the road and you see those golden arches, keep cruising, don’t pull in…and don’t drive through.

Sure, you can make healthier choices at fast food joints. But it’s so easy to blow it. Consider that the average modestly active guy in his 30s or 40s needs about 2,500 calories a day. Sodium should be no more than 2,300 milligrams (mg). Saturated fat? No more than 7 percent, which works out to 175 calories, or fewer than 20 grams.

That’s everything you eat and drink from the moment you wake up to the moment you nod off. Why scarf up most of your calories, unhealthy fats and sodium in one fast meal?
