Dr Oz: Healthy Fast Food Choices
Of course everyone wants to have the perfect body and stick to a diet, but it can be time consuming. One of the reasons that fast food is so popular is that it’s a convenient option in our busy lives.
But fast food doesn’t always have to be unhealthy. Dr Oz invited heart specialists Dr Allan Stewart and Dr Matthew R Williams to investigate some of the nation’s most popular fast food chains and find the healthiest choices below 500 calories.
Dr Oz: McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets Review
The McNuggets have been a fast food staple for decades, and the six-piece order has only 330 calories with 18 grams of fat. It walks the line junk food and health, because it’s high in protein and contains zero trans fats.
But Dr Williams said this should only be an occasional snack. Skipping the sauce saves another 50 calories; otherwise, limit yourself to one sauce packet for your six nuggets.
Dr Oz: McDonald’s Premium Chicken Sandwich Review
This sandwich, served with tomato, lettuce, and honey mustard, is great tasting and healthy. It clocks it at 350 calories and 9 grams of fat, giving you flavor and leaving you feeling full. Skip the mayonnaise to save another 50 calories.
Dr Oz: Domino’s Tuscan Salami with Roasted Veggies Review
Pizza used to be simple, but these days Domino’s serves more more elaborate creations. Check out this pizza on their menu, which promises full flavor without the high sodium of pizza favorite Pepperoni.
Dr Williams said you can’t eat the entire pizza and expect that to be healthy (duh), but at 150 calories per slice, you can enjoy two pieces of this pizza with just 12 total grams of fat.
Doctor Oz: Subway Veggie Delite Review
Subway’s Veggie Delite is full of vegetables, which are good for keeping your appetite under control. Avocado gives the sandwich good fat, while Cucumber gives it a crunchy texture. Swap mayo for Vinegar, and you’ll end up with a 300 calorie sandwich that only has 9 grams of fat.
Dr Oz: Subway Roasted Chicken Sandwich Review
This chicken sandwich is high in protein, and adding veggies gives you more crunchy flavor. Enjoy it with 390 calories and 6 grams of fat.
