    chipolte carnitas burrito bowl! double the veg and pile on the guac, no rice or beans. yum! this is a great option! they use fairly ethically raised meats for a fast food joint.

    Perhaps you should reply "yes, but only low carb fries"

    On a side note, is the Carl's Jr. Low-Carb Burger a viable Primal Choice (obviously not strictly Primal, but in a pinch I mean?)

    Me too! I order brisket and pickles as my go-to rescue meal. I'm also a fan of a burger in a bowl (side salad from anywhere with a burger thrown on top), original rotisserie chicken, chipotle (although pretty much everything has soy in it), steamed shrimp from the grocery (I won't eat this at lunch because it stinks but I do get them to steam some for me if I didn't meal plan and need dinner in a hurry). I also hit Waffle House for breakfast of eggs and bunch of meat. I travel some for work so I end up eating this kind of stuff more than I should When I travel locally, I bring my lunch and stop at a gas station to reheat.

    In Aus, Macca's claims their beef is 100% and I used to throw the bun away and eat the beef but it was making me sick. If there is nothing but beef in their pattie than it must the oil they cook it in. Also, I think their cheese would be great for holding bricks together, but I don't think its good for your digestive system.
    In the US, ALL of their meat contains soy...even their 100% angus patties. I've checked each of the options because my son has a soy allergy. There's virtually nothing he could eat at McDonalds except the apples (minus the carmel sauce) and the ice cream (minus the cone) because everything else contains soy.

    as far as i can tell mcdonalds doesnt use soy in their regular hamburger patties. curious where you got your info?

    per their website :

    100% Beef Patty:
    100% pure USDA inspected beef; no fillers, no extenders. Prepared with grill seasoning (salt, black pepper).

    they do use soybean oil in their angus seasoning though

    I don't see why not. It's meat & vegetables. Ditch the cheese and sauces, and it's totally primal, IMO!

    On a side note, practically everything at Chipotle is smothered in soybean oil. I think I'd rather eat the flour tortilla. The only thing on their menu that isn't cooked in soybean oil is the carnitas I believe. Even some of their salsas has soybean oil in it. Same thing with Qdoba. So disappointing.

    When out to bars, I get chicken wings and Miller Lite. Minus the oxidized PUFA's from the fried wings, it ain't all that bad. I carry 1g of fish oil and 3.6g of flaxseed oil with me every time I eat out to balance. That should keep me under 4:1 easily.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Interesting. I just looked again when you posted this and there no soy listed in the ingredients for the patty or the seasoning (except the angus). I looked two years ago when he was first diagnosed and I swear at that point they all contained soy? Maybe they changed (or maybe I was just wrong). I did hear on the radio this morning they are changing their kids meals to include apples and "only 1/2 order of fries".

    I remember years ago my father reading that McDonald's burgers at that point contained more soy than meat. They were gradually cutting the meat with soy and had passed the halfway point. That was at least 25 years ago. This certainly may have changed since.
