Are You Ready for the Chick-fil-A Diet?

Chick-fil-A is well-known as the fast food restaurant of choice for people who hate gay people. Apparently, they are now trying to be the fast food restaurant of choice for those who are trying to lose weight!

A picture has gone viral of a Chick-fil-A bag with "great idea for healthier living." First on their list of weight loss suggestions? Eat Chick-fil-A's 8-piece grilled nugget packs every 3-4 hours!

The bag also recommends that people supplement their eating with exercise.


Someone on Facebook posted some additional health information that may have you rethinking your new Chick-fil-A diet:
6 of those nuggets have: 140 Calories, 3g Fat, 1g Saturated Fat, 0g Trans Fat, 70mg Cholesterol, 530 mg Sodium, 4g Carbohydrate s ,0g Fiber ,1g Sugar 23 g Protein.

Average persons need 1200 to 2000 calories a day. (most base it on a 2000 calorie diet and moderate active (which most are not expectually CP costumers)

So, if you made this your 8 snacks a day you would have exceeded your weekly intake for bad fats, sodium and sugars and Cholesterol. No dietary fiber, iron, B vitamins, vitamin C , folic acids, or potassium. (or the other daily intake of mineral and vitamin recommendations) Not to mention over half of your caloric intake.
In other words, eat the grilled nuggets if you are looking for healthier food options at CFA -- but certainly don't go there multiple times daily!
