  • I ALWAYS keep a granola bar in my purse for just such occasions. I can't imagine blowing a third of my nutrition (and sometimes more) on something that won't keep me satisfied for very long. The granola bar will keep me satisfied for longer and is a lot better nutritionally. Throw in a few raw almonds (which I always have on hand as well), and I would be good to go for quite a while. - 4/24/2013 4:23:01 PM
  • I usually prefer the sausage McMuffin...but if I'm on the run and MUST, an Egg McMuffin it is! Most of the other options are not available in my area anyway. - 4/24/2013 4:12:08 PM
  • Honestly, it takes the same or maybe less time to make an egg muffin at home than going to McDonalds...not to mention, a lot healthier! - 4/24/2013 3:37:49 PM
  • Maybe it doesn't count as "fast food" but Panera does a great Power Breakfast Sandwich that is lo-cal and delicious. Whole grain bread and the protein is pretty high, too. - 4/24/2013 3:12:06 PM
  • I would be nice to list the protein in each item. I don't want to know about just the bad stuff but also nutrients I need. The Breakfast Jack & Egg McMuffin are pretty close in calories, I'm going choose the highest protein option. Definitely agree that the list needs to be upgraded, I think the article is several years old... - 4/24/2013 3:03:02 PM

    Oh and anyone that goes to Chick-fil-a, they have a meal calculator so you can make your meal and it will give you all of the nutrient information. - 4/24/2013 1:53:45 PM

    And also leaving the cheese off, makes a big deal as it has high fat and sodium. I'm dairy free and when I first dropped dairy my fat & sodium intake dropped significantly. Though the first month without cheese about killed me. - 4/24/2013 1:51:55 PM

    I'm glad to see other people commenting that this list is out-of-date. McDonald's now has very tasty oatmeal options that are under 300 calories. Starbucks has an awesome spinach, egg white and feta wrap and a turkey bacon & egg on whole wheat muffin sandwich that is very good, too. And what the heck is a cheese sandwich from Subway? They now have egg whites and tons of veggie options. I actually find it very easy to grab breakfast in the morning if I do fast food. There are so many more healthy options out there compared to ten years ago. - 4/24/2013 1:38:39 PM
  • Subway has many better options than the 400 calories noted in the article. They have low calorie options and you can load up on all of the veggies too. Just make sure to look at the sodium content. - 4/24/2013 12:14:35 PM
  • these options are definitely outdated. they aren't taking into accound the new oatmeals that are being offered at these fast food chains as well as the breakfast sandwiches available at subway. - 4/24/2013 11:28:23 AM
  • I really wish they would have carb counts on these charts. I have PCOS and I'm insulin resistant. Carbs mean so much more to me than calories. - 4/24/2013 10:30:29 AM
  • Well being in the extreme New England state (NH in the northern part) we have very little to choose from up here and DD is about it for fast food. I love their breakfast wrap with just egg and ham. - 4/24/2013 8:55:09 AM
  • There are a low of great options there but the sodium for each one is outrageous! I will just wake up earlier and make something healthy at home that I can take with me. - 4/24/2013 8:42:40 AM
  • I am not sure if Dunkin' still has that egg white flatbread but that was pretty awesome. I don't care for the oatmeal at McDonald's because it seems like instant. The oatmeal at Chick Fil A might be instant as well but at least it is mixed up and thick when I get it. Panera has a hidden menu and currently they have a couple of awesome low carb egg bowls on there that I just love. - 4/24/2013 6:33:21 AM
  • You can order Chick-fil-a Chicken Burrito breakfast in a bowl (without the tortilla). Takes a lot of the carbs away, and it's still yummy! - 4/24/2013 6:15:57 AM
