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.

4.Taco Bell Grilled Steak Soft Tacos
Calories: 320 (2 tacos)
Fat: 4.5 grams

Soft flour tacos have less fat than hard-shell tacos. So feel free to indulge — just skip the extra cheese and sour cream.

5.KFC Honey BBQ Sandwich
Calories: 310
Fat: 3 grams

The honey BBQ flavor gives the chicken a slightly sweet but tangy kick. And amazingly, it's super low-fat.

6.McDonald's Egg McMuffin
Calories: 300
Fat: 12 grams

This egg-and-cheese combo on an English muffin is a decent way to power your mornings. It offers protein, whole grain, and only 5 grams of saturated fat.

7.Wendy's Chili (large)
Calories: 330
Fat: 10 grams (4 sat)

A filling protein powerhouse, it also provides bone-building calcium and fiber from the beans.

8.Pizza Hut Two Slices Pepperoni Thin 'N Crispy Pizza
Calories: 400 (two slices)
Fat: 18 grams

"Thin and crispy" means it has less white-flour crust than other types of pizza. That shaves off calories so you can make room for flavorful pepperoni.

9.Meanwhile, steer clear of these top fat mongers:
1. KFC Double Down
Caloiries: 540
Fat: 32 grams

The calorie count in this cheese-fried chicken-bacon concoction isn't crazy-outrageous, but 32 grams of fat — yikes. And there's not even a piece of lettuce to give it some fiber to help you digest it!

2. McDonald's Angus Bacon and Cheese
Calories: 790
Fat: 39 grams

With a 1/3 pound slab of beef, cheese, bacon, and a thick bun, this heavyweight burger is like a grease bomb to the gut.

3. Pizza Hut Meat Lovers Stuffed Crust
Calories: 960 (2 slices)
Fat: 52 grams

Come on, do you really need oozing mozzarella cheese outside and inside each slice of your pizza?
