Biggest Loser Danny Cahill’s review of Arby’s – Danny’s Fast Food Journal V1-E4

     Well, it’s off to Arby’s today!  I actually stopped along a bike ride and had a regular roast beef sandwich and fed the top bun to the birds to save calories. Then, while looking up the detailed information on the internet, I vowed never to eat another fast food item without having researched it first for my Fast Food Survival Guide. I saw that it contained a small amount of Trans Fats! TRANS FATS??? That’s what started this journey I am calling “Danny’s Fast Food Survival Guide.” Needless to say, I didn’t include ANYTHING with Trans Fats or immense amounts of sodium on this list! Here are some of the healthiest options: <read on>

  • Apple Slices – 35 cals, 0g fat, 0g sat fat, 0mg Sodium, 9g carbs, 0g Protein
  • Chopped Side Salad, 80 cals, 5g fat, 3g sat fat, 105mg Sodium, 5g carbs, 5g Protein
  • Jr. Roast Beef, 210 cals, 6g fat, 2g sat fat, 520mg Sodium, 25g carbs, 12g Protein
  • Jr. Turkey & Cheese Sandwich, 210 cals, 5g fat, 2g sat fat, 730mg Sodium, 24g carbs, 1g Protein
  • Jr. Roast Beef Wheat, 210 cals, 6g fat, 2g sat fat, 520mg Sodium, 25g carbs, 12g Protein
  • Chopped Farmhouse Salad-Roast Turkey, 240 cals, 13g fat, 7g sat fat, 760mg Sodium, 10g carbs, 22g Protein
  • Jr. Deluxe Sandwich, 260 cals, 12g fat, 3g sat fat, 560mg Sodium, 26g carbs, 13g Protein
  • Prime-Cut™ Chicken Tenders - 3 piece, 350 cals, 17g fat, 2.5g sat fat, 970mg Sodium, 25g carbs, 25g Protein

 Here are my results:

  1. Danny’s Choice: Chopped Farmhouse Salad – Roast Turkey
  2. Runner up: Jr. Roast Beef Wheat
  3. Honorable Mention: Jr. Roast Beef
  • Best Side: Apple Slices (Natural fruit ALWAYS takes first!)
  • Second Side: Chopped Side Salad

Danny’s Preferred Meal: Chopped Farmhouse Salad – Roast Turkey w/ Apple Slices

Danny’s “on the go” Bike Meal: Jr. Roast Beef Wheat (and feed the top bun to the birds!) w/ Apple Slices

    Please be careful when selecting salad dressings!  They will often add so much fat, sugar and calories to your salad, making them almost as bad as a burger! When you can, hold the cheese and throw that top bun to the birds!

Next week I’ll be looking into SUBWAY! Tune in!
