    Wendy's cheeseburger and fries? I'm sorry, but all the pickles and tomatoes in the world can't compensate for that mound of artery-clogging fat. I'm surprised that a registered dietitian would eat this, much less recommend. Highly inappropriate in my opinion. - 8/31/2013 2:45:45 PM
  • Since my son loves to play at Mc Donalds, I like to get their grilled chicken snack wraps. Depending on my mood, I can order two or get one and a side salad or yogurt parfait. - 6/29/2012 3:53:22 PM
  • I go to Chipotle and get a burrito bowl with everything *I know I know* but I also get a side bowl full of lettuce. I split the whole thing and end up with 2 salads. One for now and one for later! - 6/28/2012 3:03:10 AM
  • Sure, good in calories and fat content... but I'm betting the sodium is still very high. It all depends on how one defines a "healthy" meal. That being said, if you're stuck with fast food, these are the better choices. A better bet - plan ahead. :) - 10/12/2011 2:41:11 PM

    Thanks for the good tips, they sound good and a couple I wouldn't have thought of myself. - 10/12/2011 12:57:43 PM
  • Good article, I am pretty stuck on SUBWAY and Sweet tomatoes salad bar. - 7/30/2011 8:24:52 PM

    I love the chipotle idea! - 6/28/2010 10:46:24 AM
  • Right now I'm really lovin McDonald's Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad. And yes I get the dressing that comes with it (It's absolutely delicious!) Total calories=420 The dressing is 100 by itself..... but you have to allow yourself some bad fats sometimes! - 6/22/2010 3:29:41 PM
  • If I'm in a hurry, I will grab two grilled fillets and a side of green beans from KFC. Protein and veggies all for 285 calories!! Keeps me full for a long time :) - 6/11/2010 12:59:51 PM

    thanks guys, these tips all help me. i run errands during lunch & its very difficult to get something healthy to eat on the go. - 6/4/2010 5:55:58 PM
  • My favorite is wendys Ultimate grill with no honey mustard just plain or tiny bit of ranch I put on myself with a small chili with onions and crackers, and a large minute maid light lemonade. This whole meal comes to 560 calories, 100 from fat , 11 grams total fat, 65 grams carbs, and 48 grams protein. You won't be hungry and completly satisfied. - 6/4/2010 2:57:00 AM

    I really like the chili over a plain baked potato idea. Lots of good ideas, thank you. I wish we had chipotle here, it sounds good :) - 5/30/2010 8:43:12 AM
  • My fav. is definitely a Mickey D's Grilled Chicken Caesar salad (210 cals) with 4 Mild Picante packets as dressing (20 cals)...YUM! - 5/27/2010 2:23:00 PM
