What is your go-to fast food?

I am going to be out for dinner, so I have to pick up something real quick. I was thinking a grilled chicken sandwich from somewhere, but curious what other people usually do?

I have 646 calories left for the day.

Near me, there is:

McDonald's
Jack in the Box
Burger King
Taco Bell

I did really well this week (this was my re-start week), and I'm a little nervous because fast food is my biggest temptation.

    Whatever strikes your fancy that fits your calories. I do like Taco Bell for fitting a lot of food in a smaller amount of calories. Go Fresco!

    Oh yeah, I forgot about their fresco stuff!

    Taco Bell's plain tacos (or even the Doritos Locos!) are 170 calories a piece. Their Power Bowls are pretty low cal.

    I also like the veggie burger from BK. Maybe with a side salad or small onion ring?

    I would suggest a Chicken Fajita Pita with no cheese for JIB. Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich if you’re craving McDonald's.
  • My go to on the go food (or when i don't feel like cooking) is Chipotle.

    My go to- is burger king- veggie burger- with ketchup/ mustard- no mayo- extra lettuce, tomatoe, pickles. with a value onion ring(smaller than a small-less calories) and diet coke.
    also love del taco- value menu- three layer nachos and one mini chicken or beef quesadilla.
    Look online at the restaurant menu/ calorie count before you even go to the place and you can figure out what you want- always have a second choice handy

    That's what I ended up getting! But I got cheese, since i had more than enough calories for it.

    I know I wish there was one close by. That's usually a safe bet.

    The Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad at McDonald's is pretty good. It's only 350 calories so you can have some fries with it, or an apple pie.

    The BK veggie burger is pretty darn good.
    I usually get 1-2 mini beefy quesadillas from Taco Bell depending on my calorie needs (210 for one). I find them very filling and tasty.

    My number one go to is a triple cheeseburger from McDs with a whopping 29 grams of protein. I think it has 500 calories.

    In McDonalds UK we have wrap of the day. Certain days of the week have a specific wrap for £1.99 with the rest at normal price, you have the option to get it either grilled or fried. I usually go to McDonalds because of this healthier grilled option. There is also subway but it is a bit of a rip off.

    I like Potbelly or Panera. Or, I call a local restaurant and order pick up.
