I rarely eat fast food, but every now and then I still swing by Taco Bell and I'm wondering since they've switched to trans fat-free oils if the calorie content will change in their food or if it will just bring the fat grams down without changing the calories.

Any thoughts?

It might reduce the # grams of saturated fats, depending on what they replace the trans fats with. But the total number of fat grams and calories will not change unless they also reduce the total amount of fat they use, which isn't likely.

Yes, that makes sense. The reason I was wondering is because the few fast food items that I eat, I have their nutrition information in my fitday food log and was wondering if I should keep an eye out for new nutrition info.
