Double Down cheeseburger

I was out and about today and got caught without anything to eat when lunch came around. So I stopped at Wendys and got the kids food and got myself 2 jr. bacon cheeseburger and took off the buns. I used the patties in place of the buns and put all the toppings in the middle of them. It was delicious.

I heard that some people bring oopsie rolls with them when they go out. Does anyone have any low carb fast food suggestions or ideas you want to share?

Wendy's is one of the only fast food restaurants that I have found I can ask them to hold the bun without any problems...Love it!!

I was a little embarrassed at first. I'm hanging with ladies who eat salads for lunch and I'm eating something so weird they give it a nickname. But now I am proud!

And thank you for the compliment. It took me many years to get to a point I am happy with myself!

lol

OK... sometimes you just feel like a burger, so that's what you do, and that's fine.

BUT... Wendy's actually has a fabulous SALAD that I love! The "BLT-Cobb". It has bacon, egg, blue cheese crumbles, and an "Avocado-Ranch" dressing that's actually low-carb and made from real foods, not chemicals! Oh, yeah -- and the salad has grilled chicken. lol I was really amazed the first time I ordered it! LOVE this salad!

When I end up eating fast food, a burger-hold the bun -- is usually my meal of choice. I like to order the bacon-burger if there's one available. Yesterday, though, at Hardee's, there was a mushroom-swiss that I had, just because mushrooms sounded so good. THey were served in this thick... SAUCE... that I'm positive was full of starch. So "never again" on the mushrooms for me. That'll probably extend to ALL fast-food places: Safer to stick to bacon.

Culver's is so heavenly, I'm pretty sure it's where angels go to spend their afterlife! If I'd ever lived near a Culver's, I'm pretty sure I would have started this diet at well over 300 pounds.

the five guys by me just started offering burgers without the buns in bowls, makes a good alternative. They usualyl dont have a problem removing the bun, it just can be messy if its without buns and only wrapped in tinfoil

Yes, that BLT-Cobb is right off the menu. Just make sure you specify grilled chicken, not crispy. (Comes both ways.)

It's probably the best, most satisfying, and most LC-friendly fast-food salad I've ever seen! I was in heaven when I discovered it!!

Just ask them to lettuce wrap it for you and keep the bun. I haven't had one place refuse yet. If you get it with a bun, half the darn cheese sticks to the bun and you can't eat it.

I often get a bunless McDouble from McDonald's and a side salad off the dollar menu. Don't get their ranch, though, it's super high in carbs. Their balsamic vinegarette is only 3 carbs (the ranch is NINE! WTH???)

I know!! I went McDonald's yesterday and got the bacon and cheese angus, hold the bun and condiments, with a side salad instead of fries and I couldn't believe the carbs in the dressing! I ended up not eating the salad because my thought was if I'm going to eat all those carbs in a salad, I might as well eat something tastier dove chocolates only have 4g in one piece (4.8 - 1g fiber), not that I eat the chocolate (wouldn't be able to stop at 1), but the principle is there lol
