Even if you aren't eating fast food after a work-out, your take-out meal might still not be the healthiest option.
Ninety six percent of the main entrees sold at America's top chain restaurants fail to meet federal recommendations for nutrition.

The national restaurant association says the industry is working to make changes, such as putting nutritional information on menus.
