  1. Thanks for sharing! I love the Healthiest Orders at Every Major Fast Food Chain! It’s hard to always eat at home, especially on the go. When I was pregnant and had diabetes, I liked to chose Chick Fil A, because of their grilled chicken nuggets, a lot healthier than the fried ones and they taste much better! Subway is always my favorite though for trying to stay healthy.

    • Subway definitely makes it easy to stay healthy – I feel like they have a LOT of healthy options. However, I think my favorite healthy meals are one-offs at Chipotle, Which Wich, Panera, and Fuzzy Taco. Most of their stuff isn’t healthy, but they all have a few gems that I love!

  2. Subway is TOTALLY the best!! I know that you know that I lost my 50 pounds w/ the subway diet. That said, chick-fil-A is super easy to do it as well. The grilled chix w/ fruit (EVIL FRUIT!!) and a water is only like 500 cals. Not too shabby!

    • I think the problem is making it filling. I have always told myself that I could easily lose weight by subbing protein bars or Lean Cuisines for a few meals here and there, but I just don’t find those satisfying.

      To your point, though, I think you could make a diet out of just about any fast food/fast casual restaurant as long as you were careful in your ordering.
