Freddy's Nutrition Facts: Menu Choices and Calories

If you love a traditional fast food burger, fries, and dessert, then you probably love the Freddy's menu. Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers offers nostalgic decor along with both old-school and unique food items. But can you get a diet-friendly meal when you dine there? You can maintain your healthy eating plan at any restaurant, including Freddy's.

Analyzing the Freddy's Menu

There's plenty to enjoy at Freddy's, but much of it is high in fat, high in calories and high in sodium. If you're watching your salt intake, you may want to be careful when you visit this fast food favorite.

At any fast food restaurant, the key to keeping your diet in control is to keep portion sizes small. Many smart dieters even order kid's sizes of popular items so that they can enjoy their favorite treats without guilt.

In addition, it's smart to drink water when you dine at a fast food joint. Why? Because beverage calories add up quickly. And if you want to be able to enjoy a Freddy's sandwich, side, and a small custard treat, then you need to limit the calories you spend on a drink.
