Top 6 Fast Food Picks; or, How to Eat Fast Food and Stay Thinby Sonja Rose on Feb. 25, 2011, under Health
Living thin can sometimes be a challenge, especially with all the fast food choices out in the world today.
Fast food restaurants are required to post their nutritional information at their restaurants and online, so you can see exactly what you are eating these days. Here are a few of my personal favorites:
Grilled Chicken Bowl: Romaine Lettuce, Seasoned Grilled Chicken, Red Onions, Pico de Gallo, Extra Mild Salsa (used in place of dressing), and Shredded Cheese. Calories: 320
Chicken with Broccoli: Stir-fried chicken with Ginger Broccoli. Calories: 290. Add 5.5 oz. white rice, 200 calories (5.5 oz. brown rice, 170 calories).
3) Chick Fil-A
Chargrilled Chicken Sandwich: Seasoned Chicken Breast, Bun, Lettuce and Tomato. Calories: 300 (I order mine with extra pickles, and take off the top bun, so it’s less calories – I like less bread-to-chicken ratio). Order a side salad for only 70 calories more.
Small McDonald’s Hamburger with tiny minced onions and ketchup. Calories: 250. Add Small Fries for only 230 calories more.
Six-inch Turkey Breast Sandwich on 9-Grain Wheat Bread: Lettuce, Tomato, Onions, Green Pepper and Cucumber. Calories: 219.
Hamburger With Grilled Onions, Lettuce, Tomato and Spread. Calories: 390
Going to fast food restaurants are part of living thin, because it’s real life (everyone ends up in one eventually for one reason or another!). It’s unrealistic to think that you will never go to a fast food restaurant, so have a plan in place before you go. I love knowing what I’m going to order, and know that I’m not going to ruin my diet plan so I can truly enjoy myself. For more fast food restaurant ideas, read, “Eat At Piggies, and Stay Thin.”
