Our Macro-Friendly Takeaway document is the ultimate guide to healthier options at fast food restaurants.
Picture this – you’re stuck at your local shopping centre, ninety minutes deep into a shopping spree and your stomach starts to grumble. It’s been a good 5 hours since you’ve had breakfast, you haven’t planned or prepped your next meal, and you’ll need to pay for parking if you’re not out of there soon. What now? Okay, maybe you can’t imagine yourself in that scenario – but you get the point.
We have the answer (or answers) for you. We’ve collated a list of macro-friendly takeaway food options available in Australia, where the nutritional data is available. To make the cut, menu items must:
- Contain less than 60g carbohydrates
- Contain less than 25g fat
- Contain more than 25g protein
- Not include any breakfast, side or snack menu items
In this document you will find healthy food options from:
✓ Grill’d Healthy Burgers
✓ Hungry Jack’s
✓ Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC)
✓ Guzman Y Gomez
✓ Mad Mex
✓ Red Rooster
✓ Salsas Fresh Mex
The above fast food restaurants contain at least one menu item that meets our strict criteria, with one restaurant in particular having 15 options that we deem to be “macro-friendly”
