Registered dietician Amber Pankonin MS, RD, LMNT, who examines calories from fat, carbs, protein, and sodium content when judging a hamburger’s nutrition, tells EatThis,NotThat!, “This burger might have a few more calories, but it’s the healthiest burger option at Freddy’s when you consider calories and sodium.” That may be true, but we did a little investigating of our own and have a few tricks up our sleeve to make Freddy’s California Style Steakburger even healthier.
According to Freddy’s website, ditching the bun for a lettuce wrap can save you a whopping extra 170 calories! Now, if you choose a lettuce wrap but decide to keep the cheese, you’re looking at 320 calories, which is still lower than the original 440. Onto the more saddening part. A regular order of fries will cost you 440 calories. Cheese fries? A whopping 560 calories. Together, an order of fries and California Style Steakburger without cheese tallies 880 calories. So, just remember: everything in moderation.
