While eating at home is generally healthier than eating out, we often find ourselves opting for take-out when things get hectic. There are plenty of factors contributing to fast food’s popularity, but if you’re watching your weight, these menus can be a minefield.

Note: sandwiches include 9-grain wheat bread, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, and cucumbers.
These are based on using mixed veggies instead of rice or chow mein.
