How to eat the habit burger at home without breaking the law
The habit burger is a fast-food staple.
But, according to new research from The Habit Foundation, it may be eating more than we think.
“A lot of people think it’s healthy,” co-founder and CEO Adam Pash told Fox News.
“But if you’re going to eat something that’s unhealthy, it has to be healthy.
And that means not eating it at all.”
“It’s really important for people to be aware of the health effects of their habits, and make sure that it’s something they’re really committed to,” Pash said.
“It can actually have a big impact on their health.”
Pash and co-author of the new study, Dr. Paul S. Sperling, believe that the habit burgers are not as healthy as they might appear.
They were inspired by the American Heart Association’s Dietary Guidelines, which say, “consumption of more than 1 serving of whole foods and less than 1 cup of solid foods per day is good for heart health.”
They found that the amount of calories in the habit foods were more than twice as much as the amount they were reported to be providing in the Dietary Guidelines.
“We think the takeaway here is to think of these habits as foods that are potentially harmful,” Sperles told FoxNews.com.
“So if you eat one habit burger, that’s three calories and four grams of fat.”
The habit burgers, which are known as “sugarless” burgers, are a staple in fast-casual restaurants and fast-moving fast food chains.
The idea is that eating a single habit burger and eating a salad is equivalent to two burgers.
“The idea is to eat a single behavior and then, once you have it, eat another behavior and repeat that process,” Pish said.
Pash added that the researchers have no way of knowing if the new research is accurate, and he said they do not expect it to be.
“There are certainly many more studies, but these are the only ones we’re aware of,” he said.
The researchers conducted their study with nearly 1,000 adults ages 21 to 65, from a variety of locations in California.
The participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups: 1) eating one habit Burger, which consisted of a burger, a sandwich, and a potato salad, or 2) eating a healthy diet.
The research was supported by the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
