Fast Food That Won't Make You Fat

With obesity all over the news and fat-bomb food concoctions getting tons of attention (we're looking at you, KFC Double Down), the drive-thru window is taking a pretty big beating these days. But an increasing number of fast food restaurants are actually offering some surprisingly nutritious — and tasty — options to choose from. Next time you're at the food court or dining by dashboard, sink your teeth into one of these guilt-free options.

1.Wendy's Ultimate Chicken Grill Sandwich
Calories: 340
Fat: 7 grams

The thick piece of lean chicken provides 29 grams of satisfying, metabolism-boosting protein plus 20 percent of your daily iron requirement.

2.Subway Roast Beef Sub
Calories: 330
Fat: 4.5 grams

Make this low-fat sandwich even healthier by loading it up with grilled veggies, not mayo.

3.Burger King Whopper Jr.
Calories: 340
Fat: 20 grams

There's nothing small about this junior-labeled burger; it's juicy and satisfying yet has only 5 grams of saturated, aka "bad," fat.
