Completing this fast food challenge was exactly that, a challenge. I wanted to be honest and not simply find food items that met each criteria. This gave me a realistic view of the items I actually eat and the nutritional value associated. The dietary guidelines states that a woman who is less active should have 1600 calories, slightly active 1,800 and active lifestyle is 2,000-2,200. With the meals selected my total caloric intake is 1,842 which falls in line with me for the slightly active woman. With all meals I would drink water which aids in flushing out sodium from my system. With my schedule now at work, school and parenting this could be quite accurate on a day for me. It is an eye opener on how I thought certain food choices were solid well balance yet the sodium is higher than the guidelines state.
Sophia :The difficult part for me is was trying to exceed the total carb, fiber, and protein limit. I feel like its impossible because most items that exceed the mark for those things also exceed the other nutrients which makes it impossible to list although I feel like some restaurants work in your favor because you can make it the way you want like chipotle. This was challenging trying to follow.
