Totally revised and updated, this is the guide that eliminates the guesswork of ordering at a fast-food restaurant by presenting the facts-all of them. Certainly, due to public pressure, fast-food restaurants now offer a few healthier choices than they used to. But the pitfalls still remain.

For the second edition, the authors have included a greatly expanded and separate ingredients section that handily lists every ingredient in virtually every item found on the menus of 15 major fast food chains. New cholesterol, saturated fat, and shortening charts answer the most recent nutritional concerns. Sections and lists on sodium, sugar, calories, additives, and more have been added.

With the aid of this indispensable guide, you can make healthy choices for you and your children-even when eating fast food. Selection of the Quality Paperback Book Club and Book-of-the-Month Club. 246,500 copies in print.
