When I get the craving for a fast food burger, I lean towards the Whopper Jr w/o cheese and mayo. Plus I get the value sized fries to save on the calories. I would rather cook one at home anyway. They never put enough veggies on them anyway.

That's true. Most of the calories in almost every places burger comes from the bun too. You could eat only the bottom bun and save probably 200 calories. I looked it up once (forget the food chain) but the bun alone was 450 calories.
That would be a pretty sloppy mess though!

The burger probably isn't all that bad for you, really. The fries, not really anything good about 'em other than maybe some salvaged nutrients from the potato. The biggest Southwest Patty Melt burger that they have is 940 calories with 50g protein. If I didn't get a side, this would actually fit into my diet. My dinner is typically close to 1,000 calories.
Carl's Jr. sure knows their audience well. Although I must admit, while that burger does look delicious, I've been "interested" in a few of their products in the last few years, but have yet to set foot in one of their restaurants. Don't think I've been to a Hardee's or Carl's Jr. since I was a kid.
