KFC is a fast-food chain known for its fried chicken and Southern-style comfort food.
KFC's menu is typically high in calories, fat, and sodium, and is generally not considered a healthy fast-food option due to its emphasis on fried chicken, biscuits, and sides like mashed potatoes and gravy.
Items to avoid at KFC include the fried chicken meals with high-calorie sides like biscuits, macaroni and cheese, and coleslaw, as well as the large-sized meals with sugary beverages. The fried chicken sandwiches and crispy chicken tenders can also be high in calories and fat.
To make healthier choices at KFC, consider opting for grilled chicken options instead of fried ones, choosing smaller-sized meals with sides like green beans or corn on the cob, and asking for water or unsweetened tea instead of sugary drinks. Avoid adding extras like butter or extra sauces to your order, and be mindful of portion sizes. You can also add a side of fruit or a side salad for added nutrition.
