yes because its nutrietional value is quite low so better you just boil your potatoes than fries to avoid excist oil that could cause pimples.

French Fries are extremely bad for you. They are high in fat and they are high in calories. French fries are also loaded with sodium which isn't that good for you.

I think having french fries often can make you fat. Potato contains a lot of carbohydrates and oil helps you to put on weight. So, potato chips and french fries are not good if you have them regularly. I used to avoid potato for a long time when I was on diet. Now, I have potato in different forms, but I make sure not to have too much potato. Have a good day.

It's cooked in oil. Lots of oil and trans fat must be present in those oils. Be very careful in choosing the fast food chain to eat. Trans fat can cause you to gain fats on your belly and to your veins. It can cause heart problems later on. It's very dangerous. shadow41
