Instructions for my Husband: Five Guys is not Good For You.
But, sadly, Five Guys burgers aren't even ok to eat every once-in-awhile.
They are straight-up as bad as fast food, which completely surprised me too, but it's true. And as you know, I don't eat fast food. So I guess I'm not eating Five Guys anymore.
Here are the numbers, directly from Five Guys nutritional guide:
A single burger (which they call a little burger) is 480 calories and 26 grams of fat.
And the double burger (which they call a burger) is a perfectly frightening 700 calories and 43 grams of fat.
And last, just in case you're thinking it's not that bad, take a quick comparison to the McDonald's nutritional guide:
A Big Mac is 540 calories and 29 grams of fat, not as bad for you as a Five Guys burger.
And a McD hamburger? Is actually less bad for you than a Five Guys Little Burger - 250 calories and 9 grams of fat.
I think the McD serving sizes are smaller than the Five Guys ones, but still... it's pretty bad.
And no, I don't think Five Guys is lying on their nutritional information sheet to make the food seem worse for you then it is.
This is my twenty-fourth instruction for my husband in my ongoing series Instructions for My Husband.
