Your friends want to go get fast food one afternoon. You're happy to go, but probably don't want to completely destroy the healthy streak you've been proudly keeping for the past couple of weeks. So which burger should you choose to avoid derailing your diet in one sitting?

HealthGrove decided to help make that decision easier. Using nutrition data from ESHA, HealthGrove, part of the Graphiq network, found the least caloric burger at 20 popular chain restaurants. The list is ranked by number of calories for a serving size of one burger, and ties are broken by selecting the burger with fewer grams of fat, followed by milligrams of sodium. The health site didn't include burgers on the kids' menu or veggie burgers.
