Healthy fast food tips

NEW YORK - If you don't have time to make your lunch before leaving for work in the morning, chances are you're going to eat out.

Here are some tips on how you can have a filling meal without loading up on the calories.

One trick is to keep hidden calories off the plate.

Health experts say keep things like croutons and salad dressing to the side of your salad.

If you like Mexican food, skip the tortilla and go with the bowl option if they have it.

And when dressing up a sub or sandwich, hold the cheese, mayo and avocado.   

Before you order any fast food meal, pick up a nutrition guide which breaks down calories, fat and sodium.
