French Fries are potatoes right? And potatoes are vegetables so they must be ok to eat, right?
FRENCH FRIES ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS, THEY ARE DIET BUSTERS!
DON'T EAT THEM!!!
(unless it's your "treat for a day")
|Medium order of French Fries, 16g of Fat is outrageous, don't eat that!|
A small to medium baked potato without butter or any additives is 200 calories, frying that potato just about doubled the calories and every one of those calories comes from fat.
Ketchup is a popular condiment to consume with French Fries but the carbs are fairly high so watch how much you eat
KETCHUP, ONE TABLESPOON = 20 CALORIES, 5g CARB
five tablespoons of ketchup are only 100 calories but it's 25g Carb, be sure that fits in your daily total
Another evil in ketchup is HFCS (aka High Fructose Corn Syrup), a sugar replacement
Avoid it in all you eat and you'll save calories.
FRIES PLUS KETCHUP = 440 calories and 69g of carbs, that's almost 1/3 of total daily calories and half of daily carbs, just say'n!
