MYTH: Dine-In Restaurants Are Healthier Than Fast Food
According to an 18-month study by the Rand Corporation, that's bogus. They analyzed the contents of nearly 31,000 menu items offered at 245 "family" chains and found that 96 per cent of their entrees contained more calories, fats, and sodium than the USDA recommends per meal for both children and adults. Plus they pack an average 271 more calories and 16 more grams of fat than the fast food entrees. In other words, they're both on the unhealthy side.
