Stopping by the Chick Fil A drivethru on my way to a very stressful job and starting my day with a chicken biscuit and large Coke helped me get my day started - or so I thought. Now I know to avoid the temptation - it also helps that I have retired!!!

True. It's just like eating a 6" sub from Subway instead of a candy bar.

The taco bell cantina style aren't bad, but awfully small for the number of calories. Still, if you're looking for something to eat and drive-through is all that's available, not a terrible choice.

Taco Bell has new Cantina style tacos. 160 cals for the beef, 170 for chicken and 200 for pork. Now there are better tacos out there and I use these values when I track. There's a place out in Winter Garden on SR50 that's locally owned and great food.

I gave up on Long John Silvers many years ago because of the heavy breading. We do go out when I'm off on weekends so maybe that will be a place to try a chicken taco. I love fish as long as it's not heavily breaded.

Oh, you shouldn't have told me Wendy's changed their fries--I've never liked theirs, but if they're new, I'm going to want to try them!

I tried the $0.99 fish taco at Long John Silver's the other day--very tasty and not bad on calories, fat, etc.

Lunch: French Fries. Not curley or seasoned, just plain french fries. Wendy's was my favorite but my last trip I got cold fries and they are definitely different at my Wendy's (I think they now call them homestyle and they have the skin on). I won't be back for a long time. I like McDonald's fries too but I can't leave without an Apple pie so I just don't go there anymore.

Soooo I've really learned to eat at home more. I work at home so I really don't need to go out and buy a fast food meal. I cook a little more so I'll have leftovers or I've learned to eat without meat all the time. I'll microwave a sweet potato or make a smoothie or make a sandwich and an apple.

I'm so glad you started this thread, because I struggle with picking the healthy choices at the fast food restaurants. Please keep making suggestions!

I like Chick-Fil-A too, but I don't like the taste of their grilled chicken. To make the Chick-Fil-A sandwich healthier, I ask for a wheat bun (which doesn't have the butter on it that the regular bun does--but watch out, because they charge 20 cents extra) and no pickle, and then I use a little light mayo or mustard on it. I avoid the fries too!

My fast food fix is Taco Bell with the Meal Deal #1 Fresco style but I get a cup of water or give my hubby or mom in law the soda for them. I am staying away from soda and foods that are high in inflammation factor which inflames joints for people who have arthritis or poor circulation. I have arthritis and staying away from the foods that will ultimatly make me hurt the next day.

My fast food fix is a Chick Fil A chicken sandwich. I now get it grilled with a side of fruit instead of fries.

What's your fast food fix and how are you making healthier choices?

I sometimes crave Taco Bell. I've gone to the three taco meal, fresco style. I can work with 450 calories, sometimes.
