Have you been trying to keep foods that contain trans fat out of your kitchen? Good move! But what about when you're eating in a restaurant?

Some restaurants still use trans fat when frying food. For example, a large serving of french fries at some fast-food restaurants might contain 5 grams or more of trans fat.

When dining out, read menu labels or ask the staff for nutritional information. Arm yourself with the details you need to order wisely.
