Fast Food Survival Guide
10 tips for a healthier fast food experience
Choose your protein wisely
Change up the sides
Instead of going with the fries, try the fruit cup, a side salad (with lite dressing) or a baked potato (without the toppings). Doing this will not only mean less calories, but it will also mean a much lower sodium intake.
Order off menu
Do not be afraid to make substitutions in your order that may not be part of the normal menu item. Ask for grilled chicken on the salad instead of the fried chicken or ask to substitute the fries for apple slices.
Bring your own sides
Cut the cheese
Try ordering a hamburger instead of a cheeseburger. This will save you about 50 calories per slice of cheese.
