A burger doesn’t need to be a diet deal breaker – if it’s done right. Grilled pineapple, Swiss cheese, and teriyaki glaze from Carl’s Jr. put a new twist on the turkey burger. The result is a poultry patty with 32 grams of muscle-building protein that weighs in with less than 500 calories. The weak link is the sodium. Ask for yours sans Swiss and you’ll shave off 220 milligrams of sodium plus 50 calories and 4 grams of fat.
Stats: 470 calories, 14 grams fat, 1,120 milligrams sodium
