On the heels of my colleague Sam asking which style of french fry is your favorite, a recent report out of Harvard suggests that eating certain foods â€“Â especially french fries â€“ results in significant weight gain.
Cue Debbie Downer.
While it is not news that fries pack on the pounds, the fact that they are the worst offender in a sea of tragically unhealthy choices is a sign that maybe the fried potatoes are the true monster lurking in your Happy Meal.
I love this infographic here, which points out how much Americanâ€™s eating habits have changed for the worse. Â Itâ€™s likely that french fries of all varieties have played no small part.
Does this affect the way you view the crisp, golden, salty sides?
Thanks to the Post for the graphic.
