Fast-food tip: Watch what you drink

Can fast food be part of a healthy-eating plan? Sure, if you order wisely and choose fast food only occasionally. Remember that what you drink counts, too. Many beverages are high in calories. For example, a large regular soda (32 ounces) has more than 300 calories. Instead, order water or unsweetened iced tea. Also, skip the shakes and other ice-cream drinks. Large shakes can contain more than 800 calories.
