Fitness expert Bob Greene says fast-food restaurants are getting a bad rap these days for only having high-fat, high-calorie foods on their menus. In his book The Get With The Program! Guide to Fast Food and Family Restaurants, Bob says many fast-food restaurants are changing and now offering healthy alternatives.
Bob picks some of his favorite low-cal, low-fat options from the drive-thrus:
Bob has worked closely with McDonald's on their menu to make healthier choices available. He says their salads are the way to go.
Bob says many of the sandwiches are good choices.
Avoid deep-dish pizza if you're trying to lose weight, Bob says—it has almost twice as many calories as thin-crust pizza. You can save about 200 calories per slice by eating thin-crust. And stay away from stuffed-crust pizzas!
Taco Bell can actually be healthy, Bob says.
