Dr Oz: America’s Healthiest Fast Food Burgers

Dr Oz set us on a “new you” path with his Derriere Diet, but what happens if you start craving a burger?  Check this out: you can splurge on burgers and still lose weight? Yes, you read that correctly. You.Can.Eat.A. Burger.And.Lose.Weight! Before you do the happy dance, know that this isn’t every burger. The average American consumes 150 burgers a year so Dr Oz set up a challenge to find the healthiest fast food burger. He had his team scour the burger menus, looking for calories, fats, and nutrients in the best beef, veggie, turkey, and bean burgers. (I didn’t even know they made a bean burger!) Dr Oz’s rules included: a burger under 500 calories, no trans fat, and no mayo. (A dollop contains 80 calories.) Check out the results below. You may be surprised.

Comments to Healthiest Fast Food Burgers: Five Guys & Burger King on Dr Oz

  1. what about sodium level????

  2. VEGGIE BURGERS USUALLY MADE FROM MAINLY SOY……..
    USUALLY LOADED WITH SODIUM AS WELL
    BEWARE

  3. NOTICE THAT YOU RECOMMEND MANY DIFFERENT “BEAN” TABLETS & SPICES FROM THE KITCHEN. WHAT SHOULD & SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN TOGETHER.

  4. bubba gump says:

    eat any burger you want minus the bun = healthier
    read: wheat belly
    wheat increases your vLDL particles

  5. Healthfreak says:

    I read that the black bean burger from BWW contains 1040 mg of sodium. That is pretty high

  6. Please specify whether nutrition info is for burger with or without bun, esp. Buffalo Wild Wings Black Bean burger–”build your own burger.”
