Fast-food menus are cram-packed with fattening flops, but there are also some real guilt-free finds out there! Here are some of our top picks...

 
 
  McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin

1 sandwich: 250 calories, 7g fat, 770mg sodium, 30g carbs, 4g fiber, 3g sugars, 18g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

We've given plenty of love to the always-good Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait, and we still adore it. But it's time to let this new egg-white-stuffed sandwich shine! With naturally lean Canadian bacon, white cheddar cheese, and a whole-grain English muffin, this b-fast option rocks...

 
  Burger King Tendergrill Chicken Sandwich (No Mayo)

1 sandwich without mayo: 320 calories, 5g fat, 750mg sodium, 38g carbs, 2g fiber, 6g sugars, 31g protein -- PointsPlus® value 8*

Confession time: We REALLY like the grilled chicken at BK. But this sandwich requires a little tweak... Leaving off the mayo saves 90 calories and 11g fat. Wow! Go for ketchup and/or mustard instead. And make sure you order the Tendergrill, NOT the fried Tendercrisp. More Burger King strategies are just a click away...

 
 
 
  Subway Double Chicken Chopped Salad with Avocado

1 salad with avocado and sweet onion dressing: 380 calories, 10g fat, 730mg sodium, 38g carbs, 6g fiber, 25g sugars, 37g protein -- PointsPlus® value 10*

Hello -- DOUBLE CHICKEN. This salad is pretty much a protein party! And we understand the importance of healthy fats, which is why we add a little avocado. As for dressing, the fat-free sweet onion is outrageously good.

 
  Wendy's Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe (No Mayo)

1 burger without mayo: 300 calories, 13g fat, 800mg sodium, 27g carbs, 2g fiber, 7g sugars, 17g protein -- PointsPlus® value 8*

On the go and craving a cheeseburger? This is one of your best bets. We LOVE that it's petite yet topped with a stack of fresh veggies. And nixing the mayo saves 50 calories and 6g fat. We'd rather put those calories toward a sensible side dish or a small Frosty! Read our full Wendy's Survival Guide for more need-to-know info.

 
 
 
  Taco Bell Fresco Chicken Soft Taco

1 taco: 140 calories, 3.5g fat, 470mg sodium, 16g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 10g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

How great is the Fresco menu? So great! You can have two of these tacos for 280 calories and 7g fat (PointsPlus® value 7*). Add an 80-calorie side of black beans, and you'll be totally satisfied. Check out our Taco Bell Survival Guide for more great options, like the Fresco Burrito Supreme!

 
  Carl's Jr. Turkey Burger (No Mayo)

1 burger without mayo: 380 calories, 10g fat, 880mg sodium, 45g carbs, 3g fiber, 10g sugars, 29g protein -- PointsPlus® value 10*

A turkey burger might sound like a no-brainer, but failing to special order it without mayo would cost you an extra 110 calories and 12g fat. Ditch that fatty goo, and don't look back! This sandwich also has a special sauce, so you don't have to worry about lack of flavor. And if bunless is more your style, you can "Low Carb It" and get CJ sandwiches wrapped in lettuce leaves. Pssst... The Hardee's version of this burger has 390 calories with the mayo. Not bad! Skip the mayo to save some fat.
