Short on time? Too tired to cook? Good news! Here are some helpful hints for surviving fast food...
HUNGRY GIRL WARNING!
El Pollo Loco's Grilled Fiesta Burrito is a giant tortilla stuffed with chicken, Spanish rice, creamy chipotle dressing, jack cheese, cheddar cheese, and pico de gallo. This Mexican monstrosity has 970 calories, 59 grams of fat, and 73 net carbs! And if that's not enough, the Tortilla o' Terror comes with a side of chips, which brings the grand total up to 1250 calories, 74 grams of fat and 105 net carbs. Ay Caramba! El Pollo Loco means "The Crazy Chicken" -- and you'd have to be a crazy chicken to order this thing.
HUNGRY GIRL PICK
Forget burgers, chicken or tacos. Next time you need to hit the drive-thru, go to Wendy's and opt for Chili. A perfect winter meal, this cup of mildly spiced chili is hearty -- but with just 200 calories, 5g of fat and 16 net carbs for the small size, and 300 calories, 7g fat and 24 net carbs for the large size. Just be sure to ask yourself if adding that shredded cheddar on top is worth it... that'll add 70 calories to your meal.
