Ive got goals!

I've got goals… in different area codes… area codes.

Yeah I went there.

I'm sure most of us have heard the saying, "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."

Well, I don't want to believe that you are completely doomed if you haven't bullet-proofed your "stay fit" health plan. Sometimes, life happens and we get caught up running errands or a flight gets delayed and we are left stranded with NO FOOD, going catabolic and losing all of our gainz.

But no need to fear! There are a few fast-food joints that will do the trick. Here are 5 places that you can always count on to get you out of a jam.

  1. SUBWAY

    Subway has a great selection of chopped salads that you can choose from. You have your choose of protein, veggies, and light dressings. Most locations will even do egg whites all day, if you ask nicely of course.

  2. CHIPOTLE

    Ahhhh yes… one of our favorites. With your choice of white or brown rice, protein, and some fats, you can create a well-balanced meal at Chipotle. Just pick your portion sizes wisely. It's very easy to go overboard on calories at this delicious spot!

  3. FAT BURGER

    We are all familiar with protein style burgers. But did you know that Fat Burger also has a turkey burger option? Picking the protein style turkey burger option will dramatically bring down your calorie count on this meal.

  4. STARBUCKS

    Starbucks can be your one-stop-shop to get caffeinated and grab a healthy meal. With options like egg white bits, egg white spinach wraps, and light protein boxes, you can always make a healthy choice at Starbucks.

  5. 7-ELEVEN

    And if all else fails there is always 7-Eleven. With options like assorted nuts, hard boil eggs, and meat & cheese wraps, 7-Eleven will save you from going catabolic and withering down to nothing.

In reality, there is always a healthier option, unless you are standing in front of a CINNABON location. Then you may be screwed. It's always easier to plan ahead and meal prep, but know that there are some places that will cater to your needs just in case life happens.
