Which McDonald's sandwich should you choose?
A regular-sized hamburger from any fast food joint is usually a smaller portion, making it a good choice. And grilled chicken makes for a lower-fat alternative to breaded chicken. Plus, the tomato slice and leaf lettuce on McDonald's Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich both pack some vitamins that McDonald's Regular Hamburger lacks. But between a hamburger and a chicken sandwich, which has fewer calories?

The Low-Cal Winner
McDonald's Regular Hamburger

Although the grilled chicken is lower in fat (4.5 grams compared to the burger's 9 grams), the low-calorie winner is the hamburger. At 250 calories, a regular hamburger can satisfy your fast food craving without much damage. The Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich, while still one of the healthiest sandwich choices, weighs in at 370 calories—and that's with no mayo in sight! If you're looking for a lower-calorie grilled chicken option, McDonald's Honey Mustard Snack Wrap with Grilled Chicken contains just 260 calories and 9 grams of fat. Leave off the cheese and you will save 40 calories and 3 grams of fat. Now that's a fast, healthy bite!
