Fatty Fridays - Chicken is healthy, right?

My first summer in college I ate a lot of Chipotle and McDonald's, those being the primary options available to a poor young student such as myself who was interning and taking classes.

One of my favorite things to get was the three piece Chicken Selects meal, with French Fries and a Diet Coke.



I pretty much stopped eating these things once I looked at the nutritional content:

3 Piece Chicken Selects:
Calories: 380
Total Fat: 30g
Trans Fats: 2.5g

Large French Fries:
Calories: 570
Total Fat: 30g
Trans Fats: 8g

Total Meal (without sauce):

Calories: 950
Total Fat: 60g
Trans Fats: 10.5g

So, for those Chicken Selects fans out there, is the taste worth the price?

wow. that's sad. I knew they were bad, but not quite that bad. I guess the fries are worse, though.

Yeah man - just skip the fries, they're way overrated anyway. Though the selects aren't on the dollar menu anyway, right?
