Would You Do the Chick-Fil-A Diet? Chain Suggests Eating Their Nuggets Every 3 Hours
The chain's take-out bags suggests customers "kick off the New Year by adding one healthy habit to your routine", like eating 8 nuggets every 3 hours.
Forget paleo, juice cleanses and fasting--the diet trend of the moment is written right on the side of your Chick-Fil-A takeout bag.
A lifestyle tip on the side of the Southern staple chicken chain's bags reads, "Kick off the New Year by adding one healthy habit to your routine.
"Here’s a good one: Eat smaller meals (like an 8-count pack of grilled nuggets) every three to four hours."
The idea of a Chick-fil-a diet took off last week after Rodger Sherman from the sports site SBNation tweeted a photo of one of the bags.
If the fast food diet sounds far fetched, its price tag is even more out there.
A dieter who ate the chain's $3.85 grilled nuggets every three hours during a typical day when he or she was awake from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. would spend about $700 per month.
They'd also be getting a great deal of their daily calories from meat rather than more nutritious fruits and vegetables.
Each 140 calorie 8-pack of the nuggets has 3 grams of fat, 530 milligrams of sodium and 23 grams of protein, according to the chain's Meal Calculator.
