Many of us rely on the fast food industry to feed us when we are running errands on our lunch breaks, or feed our hungry children after a long day, so how good or bad is this fast food for our health?

It is also important to remember that people often have more than one item from this list, which can lead to a large amount of calories for one meal from a fast food restaurant. Eating fast food in moderation can be fine, just make sure to watch your calories and try not to make it mainstay in your diet.
