False Things You Believe About Chick-Fil-A
Fast food isn’t known for skipping calories, fat, and sodium, and Chick-fil-A is no exception. Take the Chick-fil-A Spicy Deluxe Sandwich, for example. The menu item, which comes with fried chicken and Pepper Jack cheese, contains 550 calories, 25 grams of fat and 1810 milligrams of sodium. Then there are the Chick-fil-A Large Waffle Potato Fries with 600 calories and 35 grams of fat (via Chick-fil-A).
Luckily, with a little forethought, you can make your Chick-fil-A dining experience a little — or a lot — healthier. Perhaps the best menu option for those concerned about their weight and physical well-being is the Greek Yogurt Parfait with Granola with 270 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 80 milligrams of sodium. Other decent options include the fruit cup, egg white grill, and hash brown scramble bowl.
If you’re looking for chicken (all antibiotic-free) in your meal, Noom recommends opting for the grilled chicken sandwich instead of its fried counterpart. The menu item contains 380 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 755 milligrams of sodium. An 8-count grilled chicken nugget is also a decent option with 130 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 440 milligrams of sodium. There is also the market salad with grilled chicken fillet with 540 calories, 31 grams of fat and 1020 milligrams of sodium.
