In the burger drive-thru, the main thing to know is that the buns and the fries are not your friend. ❌

The second thing to pay attention to is the fact that many of these drive-thrus will have grilled chicken as well as salads. ✅

👉 TIP: REMEMBER that each item is still high in calories, fat, and carbs. Only order the minimal amount that will keep you full until your next meal (which hopefully is healthier than the drive-thru!)


This combination gives you protein, fiber, healthy carbs, and some fat (although it's not necessarily the good kind from drive-thru...), to keep you full longer and your blood sugar in check.

What you CAN order: ✅

  • Salads (watch the toppings: nuts are usually coated in sugar) (Also watch the vinaigrettes, these sometimes have a lot of added sugar too.)
  • Burger on lettuce (load up the veggie toppings; mustard and cheese are great.)
  • Grilled chicken on lettuce (load up the veggie toppings; mustard is great.)
  • Hot dog, no bun
  • Corn Dog + mustard
  • Fresh fruit
  • Pickles

What to AVOID: ❌

  • Buns or bread
  • Fries
  • Anything breaded and fried
  • Ketchup + BBQ Sauce + Honey Mustard
  • Dressings with lots of sugar (check calories and carbs on the packet--you'll be shocked!)
