Considering the new Subway breakfast offerings and a few other grab-and-go newbies out there (Panera's Breakfast Power Sandwich for one), it might not be a bad idea to update this article. But outside of that, excellent information and good stuff to keep in mind when breakfast has to be fast!
For Chick Fil A - I usually do the chicken minis (3 count) with a fruit cup and lowfat milk. Or if it has to be portable, I love their new smoothies. They aren't the greatest of options, but better than some.
And I agree, leaving cheese off usually helps cut on calories!
We go to Jack in the Box often. If I am really hungry I get 2 Breakfast Jacks and eat only two of the buns and sometimes ask for them with no cheese. I also get a Chicken Fajita Pita for breakfast sometimes when I want something different and it is only around 300 calories, always ask for salsa with that. The small mango smoothie is also pretty good for around 300 calories. They also offer the fruit cup instead of hasbrowns if you want a combo.

Panera Bread's Bacon Egg and Cheese is 380 calories, and 14g of fat, without the bacon. Its not horrible for you , but its hardly less than 300k. In the words of Ronald Reagan, when it comes to what a restaurant employee tells you, "Trust but verify" . And the McDonalds Sausage McMuffin with Egg is 380 calories, the Egg McMuffin (I know, the names are confusing) is indeed, 300k.
