Want fries with that? If reaction to a nutrition's expert suggestion on how many French fries to eat per serving is any clue, then it's a resounding yes.

Last week, The New York Times published an article about the unhealthy merits of the popular side dish.

Eric Rimm, a professor at Harvard University's departments of epidemiology and nutrition, suggested diners exercise more portion control to still enjoy fries without all the bad, unhealthy consequences.

"I think it would be nice if your meal came with a side salad and six French fries," said Rimm in the article.

Others quickly pointed out they already eat six French fries. Per bite.




According to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, potatoes the origin of the French fry are the most commonly eaten vegetable.

In an email to USA TODAY, Rimm said our love for fries, and our dislike of any news suggesting fries are anything but awesome, is a big reason why reaction to his advice has been so strong.

"(It) hit a vulnerable spot with the Twittersphere," Rimm said. "I hope a few creative chefs and restaurateurs are listening."

A big reason for Rimm's suggestion is the portion size of fries served as restaurants. He points out some servings of fries carry the same calories as three to four cans of soda.

"(The) starch in potatoes breaks down very quickly to sugar in the bloodstream, and is fast calories," Rimm said.

Don't expect that to keep anyone away from their beloved French fries

since its already bad for you it doesn't matter, nobody eats 3/4 cup of cereal nor 1/28 of a pizza. id rather have the carbs of the french fries than an iceberg lettuce based salad

Fries are probably the most overrated side dish ever. They’re basically little grease packets
