STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Be healthy while eating fast food on the go!

Certified nutritionist Robert Ferguson visited the KCAL9 studios Friday to show viewers how they can eat fast food and still be healthy.

Burgers

• Where people go wrong: Eating the bun with fries is how you add inches to your thighs.

• Where people can go right: Eat the Burger or Filet O Fish by itself OR opt for a chicken salad with fries if they truly want them.

Chinese

• Where people go wrong: Two fast carbs (rice and noodles for instance) shifts the body into fat storing mode.

• Where people go right: Have 1 fast carb (rice or noodles) and 1 slow carb (broccoli, green beans) to make it fat burning.

Mexican

• Make calorie-range and the amount your consuming priority when eating Mexican because most of the food being offered is fused together (e.g., burrito).

• Where people go wrong: Not aware of the calorie-range and eat in excess (ex: eating burrito with chips/fries).

• Where people go right: Make one item (burrito) the meal or snack. So if you choose a burrito, don’t add chips.

• EXAMPLE: Chicken burrito and an iced tea or water, and you’ll be consuming a fat burning meal. The options for building a fat burning meal is huge in Mexican Food. The biggest challenge is the sodium so make sure you are well hydrated.

Sandwich

• Where people go wrong: Eating chips with their sandwich.

• Where people can go right: If you want chips, swap out the bread and enjoy a salad. Otherwise, make the sandwich your fat burning meal.

• General tips and suggestions include being mindful of the amount and role of regular soda, which is a fast carb.
