Fast food is seductive; it comes in large quantities, cheap prices and delicious aromas and tastes. However, that bang for your buck can explode your diet and get you off track. Sometimes fast food can’t be avoided, but the massive amounts of calories that frequently come with it can be. Check out our Long John Silver's menu under 500 calories.
Baked Cod: Satisfy your seafood craving with a piece of baked cod! At only 160 calories, it won't wreck your diet, plus it doesn't add extra calories and fats with fried batter. Add an extra kick with their Sweet Zesty Asian sauce for an additional 45 calories or eat it plain.
Hush Puppy: You can't go to Long John Silver's and not order a classic hush puppy! 160 calories never tasted so good, and one hush puppy won't kill you.
Corn Cobette, hold the Butter Oil: If you get rid of all the excessive butter oil on corn on the cob, it only contains 90 calories! A healthy veggie at a fast food restaurant? Who knew? Skip the salt while you're at it to avoid excessive amounts of salt in your diet.
Seasoned Green Beans: At only 29 calories, green beans are the perfect healthy side dish to your baked cod, hush puppy and corn on the cob, which brings us to 484 total calories.
