You would think that going to a restaurant for a meal is better than any fast food joint, right? It’s just common sense, isn’t it?
Well, it seems that we may be wrong. While the best way to control portions and calories and what you eat is a good home-cooked meal, we all go out to eat now and then.
And, that’s where the trouble may start!
Ruopeng An, a professor of kinesiology and community health at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, noted that people have previously equated fast food with junk food.
“But, people don’t know much about the food provided by full-service restaurants and if it is better or healthier compared to fast food or compared to food prepared and consumed at home,” An told Reuters Health.
