French fries have been a staple in the American diet for quite some time… but how many of these golden-fried delicacies should one person eat per serving?
According to Harvard professor, Eric Rimm, the answer is just six. Yes. Six fries total. Why? Well, we know a deep-fried food isn’t the best thing to put in our body, and that’s really all he is pointing out.
Rimm said, “There aren’t a lot of people who are sending back three-quarters of an order of french fries.” He continued, “I think it would be nice if your meal came with a side salad and six French fries.”
A certified dietitian-nutritionist weighed in on Rimm’s statement and agreed with the overall sentiment saying that fries “are definitely a sometimes food at best,” pointing out deep frying them removes vitamin content and increases calories.
