KFC Double Down: Meat Is The New Bread

By Laura Moncur @ 10:00 am — Filed under:

I literally thought the KFC Double Down was a joke when I saw the commercial for it.

It reminded me too much of this 30 Rock sketch with Tracy Morgan.

Meat is the new bread? Maybe they have a point there…

Is the KFC Double Down any less healthy than any other fast food chicken sandwich?

The Double Down Original Recipe is 540 Calories and 32 grams of fat. Compared to the Big Mac nutrition facts of 540 calories and 29 grams of fat, it’s very similar.

When you look at the Grilled Double Down, it’s 460 calories and 23 grams of fat. The McDonald’s Grilled Chicken Classic is 420 calories and 10 grams of fat.

Bread DOES take a lot of calories and doesn’t fill you up much compared to protein. Maybe the calories are similar with a Double Down and other fast food options, but it just might keep you feeling full longer. Is it healthy? I wouldn’t say so, but if you’re going to eat a fast food sandwich, maybe meat IS the new bread…
