    Thumbs up The Nutrition Section's Unofficial Guide to Fast Food

    THE NUTRITION SECTION'S UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO FAST FOOD

    When you’re out with your friends and stop at a fast food joint, the options are overwhelming. It’s hard to choose what to eat in the spur of the moment as fast food is notorious for being able to hide calories in some of the most innocent looking choices on the menu. Though “healthy fast food” sounds like an oxymoron, some places can help you stay clean if you choose the right foods. Here’s list of common fast food places and what healthy choices are available on their menus.

    GENERAL GUIDELINES
    #Stay away from “meals” which include fries and a drink. Although they may seem like a deal, put this into perspective
    1 Medium Serving of fries – Roughly 380 calories, 20g of fat, and 47g of carbohydrates
    1 Medium Coke – 210 calories, 58g of carbohydrates

    #When it comes to drinks, try the water or the diet sodas.

    #Order your foods without the fatty condiments like mayonnaise, cheese, sour cream, “special sauces”, tartar sauce, bacon (etc.). Especially watch salad dressings and make sure to order low-fat or reduced calorie dressings (and vinaigrettes instead of creamy dressings)., these just add extra calories from unwanted fat.
    Example: A seemingly healthy salad at Wendy’s could pack on 260 more calories with Blue Cheese or Thousand Island Dressing.

    #If it sounds unhealthy, it probably is. Double triple stacker bacon ranch double cheese burgers… you get the point. If you want a burger then order it in the smallest size.

    #Grilled over crispy will always save you calories. This one’s pretty obvious. For example, a premium grilled chicken sandwich at McDonald’s over a premium crispy chicken will save you at least 80 calories (mostly from fat). This also means stay away from the chicken nuggets (wasn’t there a thread in the nutrition section about this before?).

    #Hold the dessert. Fast food desserts can pile in more than a thousand calories in those triple thick shakes. If you want to try a lighter dessert go for maybe a small kiddy cone or a reduced fat frozen yogurt.

    #Always do your research on the restaurants. Make sure you know what’s in it before getting it. Fast food joints aren’t made to be healthy, so it’s your responsibility to choose what’s healthy. Don’t be a stranger to the menu and know what you’re going to order beforehand.


    RECOMMENDATIONS

    I compiled this list of common fast food restaurants and their top picks- at least in my opinion after I looked through the menus and nutritional information. If you want to see one of your favorite restaurants up here that I haven’t posted, you can ask and I’ll add it on for you.

    Arby’s Recommendations
    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices
    -Chicken Filet Sandwich (no mayo): 309 calories, 6g fat, 36g carbs, 31g protein
    -Super Roast Beef (w/o Red Ranch Dressing): 322 calories, 5g fat, 35g carbs, 20g protein
    *Note: the reason why this is a better version of the roast beef if you take out the dressing is that it has tomato and lettuce

    -Santa Fe Salad w/ Grilled Chicken: 283 calories, 9g fat, 20g carbs, 29g protein

    Best Chinese Take Out Choices (Based on Panda Express)
    *Note: It’s hard to known what the best Chinese meals are because there is a huge variety at each restaurant (etc.). Here are just a few options that might be more common however.
    *Warning: Stay away from battered meats, pork type dishes, orange chicken (500 calories in 5.5 oz portion!), pot stickers, fried rice/noodles, and anything drenched in sugar or very salty sauces

    and Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing
    -Caesar Salad (Grilled Chicken): 220 calories, 6g fat, 12g carbs, 30g protein

    Best Snack Choices
    -Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfait: 160 calories, 2g fat, 31g carbs, 4g protein
    *Note: Taking out the granola would save 30 calories, and 6g carbs


    Pizza Hut Recommendations
    *Note: Pizza is healthiest without fatty meats and with tons of healthy vegetable toppings.
    *Warning: Watch out for Pizza Hut’s breadsticks (150 calories, 6g fat, 20g carbs, 4g protein), hot wings, and mozzarella sticks. These sides can pack on the calories very quickly.
    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices
    -Fit'N Delicious Carb Tracker Pizza Pepperoni & Mushrooms: 490 calories, 25g fat, 39g carbs, 26g protein
    *Note: This is for the entire pizza
    -Fit’N Delicious Lower Fat Pizzas Tomatoes Mushrooms & Jalapeno peppers: 140 calories, 4g fat, 21g carbs, 6g protein
    *Note: This is for one large slice out of a 14” pizza

    Best Snack Choices
    If you have a sweet tooth and are looking for something in Pizza Hut, why not try some cinnamon sticks?
    -Cinnamon Sticks (2): 97 calories, 2.9g fat, 15.4g carbs, 2.3g protein
    *Warning: Avoid the white icing dipping cup


    Subway Recommendations
    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices
    -Any of the Sandwiches in the “6 Grams of Fat or Less” Group (Ham, Oven Roasted Chicken Breast, Roast Beef, Club, Sweet Onion Teriyaki, Turkey Breast, Turkey Breast & Ham, Veggie Delite
    *Note: Pile on the veggies, but leave out the extra sauces and condiments (like mayo and cheese). You can always use a wrap instead of bread (which will only save around 10 calories) but wheat bread isn’t a bad choice (although it is not whole wheat bread).
    -Salads: I recommend any of the salads on the menu
    *Note: Use Fat Free Italian Salad Dressing: 35 calories, 0g fat, 7g fat, 1g protein


    Taco Bell Recommendations
    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices
    *Note: For Taco Bell, I recommend anything that is prepared “Fresco Style” ,fresh Fiesta Salsa substitutes for cheese and sauce in normal recipes. Taco Bell has many good choices (especially when prepared fresco style), if I were to type them out then it would probably take forever. Here are some of the better options however.
    -Chicken Fiesta Burrito (prepared Fresco Style): 350 calories, 9g fat, 49g carbs, 16g protein
    -Bean Burrito (prepared Fresco Style): 350 calories, 8g fat, 50g carbs, 19g protein
    -Baja Beef Burrito (prepared Fresco Style): 250 calories, 9g fat, 31g carbs, 12g protein
    -One Grilled Steak Taco (prepared Fresco Style): 170 calories, 5g fat, 21g carbs, 11g protein
    -One Ranchero Soft Chicken Taco (prepared Fresco Style): 170 calories, 4g fat, 22g carbs, 12g protein
    *Note: if you want a crunchy shell, it will save you 20 calories a taco

    Best Breakfast Choices
    -Country Style Breakfast Burrito: 270 calories, 14g fat, 26g carbs, 8g protein
    -Fiesta Breakfast Burrito: 280 calories, 16g fat, 25g carbs, 9g protein


    Wendy’s Recommendations
    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices
    -Caesar Chicken Salad: 190 calories, 5g fat, 9g carbs, 27g protein
    *Note: Don’t add the croutons and don’t use the provided salad dressing
    -Mandarin Chicken Salad: 170 calories, 2g fat, 18g carbs, 23g protein
    *Note: Don’t add crispy noodles, you can add roasted almonds if you want (130 more calories), and don’t use the provided salad dressing.
    -Salad Dressings: I suggest Fat Free Ranch, Reduced Fat Creamy Ranch, Low Fat Honey Mustard, or Italian Vinaigrette
    -Ultimate Grill Chicken Sandwich: 370 calories, 8g fat, 44g carbs, 33g protein

    Best Snack Choices
    -Low Fat Strawberry Flavored Yogurt: 140 calories, 10g fat, 27g carbs, 6g protein

    What's the Dealy-O on those Wendy's Frescato Sandwiches?

    They are good.

    *edit* Oh yeah, definitely remove Wendy's Chili from the recommended list.... For non-calorie related reasons, if you know what I mean!

    Wendy's Frescata Sandwiches
    The Roasted Turkey & Basil Pesto Frescata will be your healthiest choice. It comes in around 420 calories, 15g fat, 50g carbs, 21g protein. (Not bad at all!) Though I'm not surprised when the ingredients are pretty much roasted turkey breast, roasted red peppers, basil pesto spread, romaine lettuce, and artisan bread.

    The Frescata Italiana would be the worst choice out of the frescata sandwiches. It comes in around 510 calories, 24g fat, 49g carbs, and 25g protein.



    I think the Chili will be a keeper. The breakdown of macros aren't too bad!

    Trust me, you don't want to be responsible for recommending the chili to anyone, regardless of the macros. Ask anyone who works there. =D

    My general rule that I use if I HAVE to eat out at a fast food place is to go for the grilled chicken with no mayo.

    Thanks for the heads up. The only place I occasionally eat out of those is Subway, the other places just scare me.

    This also means stay away from the chicken nuggets (wasn’t there a thread in the nutrition section about this before?).
    Here is that thread:

    All in all that doesn't sound to bad. However, if you factor in 10 crew members who make minimum wage and are constantly degraded by thier customers and one Owner/Manager who is pinching every penny possible, the results are horrible.

    The kindest thing I've ever heard about the chili's at wendy's is that the crew is told to throw everything that is unfit for sale in other products into the chili. This includes many meat patties that wound up on the floor. I've heard things much much worse, but won't go into detail.

    The chili's reputation even got so bad, one lady in Las Vegas decieded to throw in a human finger and sue the company
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7425950/

    I believe it was proven that she faked the incident and she was arrested for fraud. Buteveryone BELIEVED she found a human finger in there, becuase it was Believable!

    The Nutrition Section's Unofficial Guide to Dining Out

    Since I couldn't fit this into my first post, I'll just make a second post right here for the requested Dining Out "general" tips.

    THE NUTRITION SECTION'S UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO GENERAL DINING OUT

    No matter the occasion, dining out at a restaurant is a big part of our lives. Restaurants meals sneak up on us out of nowhere! All meals in general can hide their hundreds of extra calories in butter, sides, sauces, (etc.). Just looking at a menu gives the possibility of crash and burn. Here’s what I can do to help.

    GENERAL GUIDELINES
    *Warning: Don’t let your eyes wander to the dessert section! I have yet to find a healthy dessert on a restaurant menu. These are packed with high fat and high sugar.
    *Note: Don’t be afraid to ask the waiter to change an entree by cutting out the fat or having the sauce on the side. Also don’t be afraid to ask if you’re confused about a special item on the menu.
    *Note: It’s not a bad idea to pack your meal if you can’t finish it (and store it in the fridge when you get home). Don’t be afraid to order from the kid’s menu either- they usually have smaller portions.

    Key Words:
    Steamed
    Garden fresh
    Broiled
    Baked
    Roasted
    Poached
    Lightly sauteed or stir-fried

    Italian Food:
    -Hold the bread sticks.
    *Note: 1 Bread Stick: 140 calories, 1.5g fat, 26g carbs, 5g protein
    -Tomato based sauces will always be healthier than the creamy sauces.
    -Order whole wheat noodles if it’s possible.
    -Italian food can sneak calories in on their breaded chickens and in their cheeses. Just having the word “stuffed” in any dish will add hundreds of more calories

    Key Words:
    Affogato (steamed or poached)
    Marinara, pizzaida, pomodoro (tomato-based sauce)
    Primavera (spring style, fresh veggies and herbs)
    Fresco (fresh)

    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices (Olive Garden)
    *Note: Olive Garden provides a “Garden Fare” choice.
    -Minstrone Soup (per bowl): 164 calories, 1g fat, 18g carbs, 5g protein
    -Herb Grilled Salmon: (incomplete nutrition facts) 18g carbs
    -Chicken Giardino (Lunch Entree): 408 calories, 12g fat, 40g carbs, 26g protein
    *Note: the dinner entree for chicken giardino: adds around 150 more calories


    Mexican Food:
    -Always opt for chicken instead of ground beef in meals like tacos (etc.).
    -Watch out for cheese heavy dishes. Just the cheese itself in the wraps (etc.). will add a couple hundred calories.
    *Note: Replace these heavy condiments with salsa or try some hot sauce. These will add tons of flavor and freshness.
    -Also watch out for sour cream, and go easy on the guacamole.
    -Add vegetables into things like tacos and burritos whenever possible.
    *Warning: Chipotle, chipotle, chipotle. Though it may be delicious, do you really know what you’re eating?
    Calculate it here:
    http://www.chipotlefan.com/index.php...ion_calculator

    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices (Chipotle)
    -Try something like a burrito bowl without cheese, rice, or sour cream (roughly 369 calories)

    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices (General)
    Since there are so many different Mexican food chains, I decided to make a general meal that may be a better choice next time you go out.
    -Chicken Fajitas without Sour Cream, Guacamole, or Cheese


    Steakhouse Food:
    *Note: Mmm-m, isn’t it just so tempting to reach out for one of those House Specialty burgers (1000+ calories), or a huge rack of ribs? It’s better not to.

    Key Words:
    Baked, steamed
    Blackened, grilled
    Broiled, charbroiled
    California-Style
    Roasted, rotisserie
    Brochette (meat, fish, poultry or veggies on a skewer)

    Best Lunch/Dinner Choices
    -Grilled Chicken Entrees with a Side of Vegetables
    *Note: Don’t order fries as a side, and make sure the vegetables are cooked without added butter and oil
    -Grilled Fish Entrees with Side of Vegetables
    -Baked Potato without the sour cream and cheese
    *Note: You can try salsa as a topping instead
    -A “House” Chicken Salad with low-fat dressing ordered on the side
    *Note: Make sure the main ingredients are vegetables and chicken

    (Example: TGI Friday’s Barbecue Jack Chicken: 500 calories, 10g fat)


    Indian Food: (I don’t know much about these places unfortunately)
    *Warning: Avoid foods with the words Malai and Makhani, meaning cream and butter
    -Chicken tikka entrees (grilled)
    -Whole Wheat Roti (a smaller version of the naan)


    Chinese Food:
    *Warning: Make sure the restaurant doesn’t use MSG in their foods

    Key Words:
    Braised
    Roasted
    Simmered
    Steamed
    -Moo Goo Gai Pan
    -Steamed Tofu and Veggies or Steamed Veggies and Chicken with Egg Drop Soup, or Steamed Rice.

    And of course…

    Breakfast Diners
    -Egg white or Egg Substitute Vegetable Omelet (No Cheese), served with a piece of fruit or with Whole Wheat Toast.
    *Note: Ask for toast plain and then you can spread fruit preserves on it later
    -Plain oatmeal with fruit and scrambled egg whites or egg substitute.

    Another popular place is Panera, and they have some pretty good options:

    Panera:
    Soups:
    * Chicken Noodle: 100 calories, 2g fat, 15g carbs, 5g protein
    * Black Bean: 160 calories, 1g fat, 31g carbs (11g fiber), 9g protein
    * Garden Vegetable: 90 calories, 0.5g fat, 17g carbs, 4g protein

    Salads:
    * Classic cafe, order with no dressing and add a meat (chicken, turkey, or roast beef). Probably around 160 calories (Ballpark estimate)
    * Grilled Salmon (Half portion with dressing): 7g fat, 16g carbs, 11g protein (carbs will be less if ordered with no dressing)
    * Fresh fruit cup (Honeydew melon, red seedless grapes, cantaloupe, pineapple) 70 calories, 0g fat, 19g carbs, 1g protein

    Breads:
    * Low Carb Italian Herb (1 slice): 80 calories, 1g fat, 10g carbs (4g fiber), 7g protein
    * Low Carb Pumpkin Seed (1 slice): 90 calories, 2.5g fat, 9g carbs (4g fiber), 8g protein
    * If ordering a sandwich, order without the dressings (mayo, vinigrette, etc) and substitute the bread for one of the better options.

    Sides:
    * Apple (they're small) 55 calories, 0g fat, 15g carbs, 0g protein
