"Nutritional" Fast Food Options

Two of my good friends complained to me that they don’t have enough time to cook food, so they end up eating out. Due to the fast paced society we live in, eating out has become the lifestyle of many people. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service (ERS), Americans now spend 48.9 percent of their food dollars away from home. This is the highest percentage currently on record. Thirty years ago, only about 37 percent of those food dollars were spent away from home. Fifty years ago, that figure was just 25 percent.

Most of the changes are due to a strict nutrition plan and workouts that takes anywhere from 15 to 35 minutes a day, five times a week, with Saturday as either a bonus day with a specific challenge or a rest day and Sunday always resting. Here are some things to think about as you begin to workout.
