I figure that some of you have had moments already where you are out and starving but not sure what fast food places carry low point options. I was at a Chick-fil-a the other day with a bunch of other women and they were discussing what foods there were low in points. One of the women who has lost 150 lbs on ww said it was the char grilled sandwich. Another woman had order the wrap because she thought it would be the lowest. I think that foods we assume are healthy turn out the be the worst options. I always order the kids 4 piece chicken nugget meal with a diet drink and fruit instead of fries. I think it is only 4 or 5 points. I know the fruit is 1 pt for sure. I would encourage you to figure out low point foods that you can pick up on the run rather than just guessing.
I love knowing that I can get a tall caramel macchiato for 3 points and a grande for 4, this is just as satisfying as a 6-8 point salted caramel hot chocolate. Also remember tea is 0 pts, brewed tea in a tea bag, not a sweetened drink.
I read today in my runners magazine that people underestimate the calorie count by up to 93% when they are eating out.
I would love to hear if you have a go to food that is lower in points to pick up while you are out.
I also figured I would address 0 pt foods. Yes a few foods are 0 points, so great!! Remember that it is only 0 points for one serving. Carrots easily jump in points when you go above a serving.
