Hardee’s All Natural Grass Fed Burger?

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Okay, I admit, I didn’t feel like cooking dinner tonight, so I got a low carb, grass fed burger from Hardee’s.  Low carb because they wrap it in lettuce and not a bun.  Total carbs = 9 grams.  Fiber = 2 grams.  Total NET carbs = 7 grams.  No fries and had some new organic Gunpowder Iced Green […]

Chick-Fil-A and MSG. You should know…

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Around here, in Virginia, Chick-Fil-A is a big deal.  It’s a fast food restaurant serving CHICKEN.  Whenever I drive by the place it’s usually rockin’.  Compared with Taco Bell and McDonalds next door, Chick-Fil-A would be the stock to own (if it had stock/options).  People are just CRAZY about Chick-Fil-A.  They offer fried chicken sandwiches, their new Grilled Chicken […]

You want fries with your chemicals?

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Last fall, Wendy’s fast food chain did a make-over on their french fries.  A much needed makeover.  The result?  Natural cut fries!  And they are well liked by the masses in taste tests and even come with sea salt. Now at first glance, you might even think that the fries were ‘natural’.  And apparently, the […]

Hardees Turkey Burger

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

I don’t know if you’ve seen the new Hardees® commercial for their turkey burger sandwich, but it’s Miss Turkey in a bikini eating a turkey sandwich while walking next to a swimming pool.  Being a male, I certainly don’t mind the commercial or at least watching Miss Turkey. So what’s the carb count on this […]

Fast food lunch vs. Low Carb lunch

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Let’s take a look at a common fast food lunch vs. a low carb lunch. In this case, we’re going to compare a McDonald’s Big Mac, medium fries and medium drink for the fast food meal. For the low carb meal, exactly what I’m eating today for lunch, it’s an 8 oz. steak and 2 […]

Comparing a fast food breakfast to a low carb breakfast

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

Ok, so obviously, I do have some bias here towards low carb, but let’s just take a look at some of the numbers. For this breakfast, I’m comparing 2 meals I’ve eaten on numerous occasions.  And in this case, it’s a Chik-fil-a Chicken, Egg & Cheese on a Multigrain Bagel with hash browns and orange […]

Sweet tea anyone?

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Shockingly, I just saw how many carbs were in Hardees® sweet tea (according to their own website). And they aren’t messing around when they say ‘sweet’. There are 99g of carbs in one sweet tea (97g of that pure sugar). To give you an idea of just how much sugar that is, one teaspoon (a […]
