19 Healthiest Fast-Food Meals for Weight Loss, According to RDs When you think "fast food," a phrase that probably doesn't come to mind is "healthy food." However, in recent years, many fast food restaurants have started to expand their menus to offer more than just burgers and fries."Over the past few years, fast-food chains have realized the consumer is becoming increasingly health-conscious, and in order to keep up, they have added a ton of menu options for someone trying to stay healthy," notes Jonathan Valdez, RDN, owner of Genki Nutrition and spokesperson for New York State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.And if you're on a weight loss journey, that means that you will be able to find options that won't hinder your goals."Fast food gets a bad reputation, sometimes unrightfully so, for being super unhealthy because of the high-calorie density options (think lots of calories, in a small amount of food)," says Mike Gorski, RD, registered dietitian, fitness coach, and owner of MG FitLife. "However, losing weight comes down to eating fewer calories than you burn, and with a little pre-planning and creativity, you CAN be successful while still eating fast food."We asked dietitians for their picks for the healthiest fast food meals that will help you stay on track with your weight loss. Here are 19 of their picks. Read on, and for more on how to eat healthily, make sure you avoid these 100 Unhealthiest Foods on the Planet.Read the original article on Eat This, Not That!

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
