Jack in the Box, Best Choices for Dieters

Jack has never swept the calorie content in his foods under the Diet Carpet and offers a good selection for individuals seeking most any avenue of health (or non-health).

Some of their healthier burger choices as suggestions for those wanting to keep calories and fat in check include:

The kid's hamburger for 310 calories and 14 total dietary fat grams. Compared to the other burger selections, it is one of the choices that is also lowest in sodium (salt) content.

Other good selections based on calories include the Hamburger Deluxe at 370 calories and 21 fat grams. Add cheese for an additional 90 calories. That's a pretty steep price for that cheese, so if you enjoy it, then love it a lot.

Ultimate Cheeseburger, Ultimate Fat

Do stand clear of the Ultimate Cheeseburger because it is ultimately full of dietary fat at 71 grams - 28 of which come from naughty saturated fat.

And you don't need those 1,010 calories - or the 1,580 mgs of sodium. That much sodium will have you swelling up larger that Timmy the Toad. And we all know what happens to toads. They croak.

All of the salad selections are nominal in caloric content; it's just those rotten little salad dressings that you need to beware of. The low fat Balsamic makes an excellent choice for 40 additional calories and it's full of flavor.

Tacos & Eggrolls

What about those tacos and egg rolls? Both are excellent choices for dieters. The Beef Monster Taco contains only 240 calories while the Regular Beef Taco contains 160. Go for the monster.

As to the egg rolls, one contains only 130 calories and they are quite tasty - one of our favorite selections on the Jack in the Box menu. Three will cost 400 calories and about 19 grams of dietary fat.

Fries, Onion Rings, Cheese Potatoes

Now we come to the fries, onion rings and cheese potatoes. Do you really want to eat just eight onion rings? I know they are delicious - I like them too. But for 500 calories, you can also eat an entire Jumbo Jack.
