Worst Sandwiches — Double-Fisted Diet Wreckers

Man Eating On The Go

7 Sandwiches to Skip, 7 to Enjoy

At many popular sandwich chains, you can unwittingly gobble up a diet disaster — unless you know how to order. Browse our gallery of the 7 sandwiches that are poor bets — items that are packed with hidden calories. Then check out 7 better choices at the same restaurants. And beware the turkey sandwich, which has become a blank canvas for fattening additions of all kinds.

Schlotzkys deluxe original sandwich

Schlotzsky’s: Poor Bet

The medium-sized Deluxe Original-Style Sandwich has double servings of smoked ham, two kinds of salami, and three types of cheese. Layered in between, there are a few healthy things — like black olives, red onion, lettuce, and tomato — but that’s not enough to offset the fat, calories, and sodium. All that meat and cheese equals a whopping 980 calories, 47 g fat, 19 g saturated fat, and 3,820 mg sodium.

Schlotzkys chicken breast sandwich

Schlotzsky’s: Better Bet

The Small Chicken Breast Sandwich is a better choice at Schlotzsky’s. It has only 330 calories — fewer than half the calories of the “original-style” sandwich — along with a slim 2 g fat and no saturated fat. Chicken, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and fat-free spicy ranch dressing on a sourdough bun keep the calories and fat in check. But watch out for the sky-high 1,150 mg of sodium.

Blimpie meatball parmigiana sandwich

Blimpie: Poor Bet

Again, meatballs are bad news. The large Meatball Parmigiana has beef and pork blended meatballs covered in marinara sauce, melted provolone, and sprinkled Parmesan. All that meat and cheese equals 1,490 calories, 78 g fat, 32 g saturated fat, and 4,170 mg sodium. When ordering at a restaurant, beware of specialty breads, which often have extra calories.

Blimpie Beat Bet Roast Beef

Blimpie: Better Bet

Order the 6-inch Roast Beef and Provolone on wheat for a healthy and satisfying sandwich. The tally is: 460 calories, 14 g fat, 5 g saturated fat, 1350 mg sodium, and 6 g fiber. Keep these other Blimpie subs under 400 calories by skipping the cheese and sauce: ham, turkey, veggie, or club. Have it on wheat for a healthy dose of fiber.

Arbys roast turkey sandwich

Arby’s: Poor Bet

Arby’s Roast Turkey Ranch & Bacon  Sandwich has bacon, turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and ranch sauce. It all adds up to a colossal 800 calories, 34 g fat, 10 g saturated fat, and a shocking  2,420 mg sodium.

Arbys Best Bet Roast Beef Sandwich

Arby’s: Better Bet

A plain, Roast Beef Classic Sandwich is a decent choice for controlling calories. But skip the melted cheese, mayo, and the “horsey” sauce (50 calories and 5 g of fat in a tiny packet.) Arby’s sauce adds flavor with zero fat and only 15 calories. The nutrient tally before additions is 360 calories, 14 g fat, and 5 g saturated fat. The high sodium content may be a deal-breaker for some at 970 mg.

BK Worst Bet Tender Crisp Chicken Sandwich

Burger King: Poor Bet

“Crisp” is a red flag for high-fat, fried food. And the TenderCrisp Chicken Sandwich is a classic example of fried chicken on a bun slathered with creamy, high-fat dressing. It tops out at 670 calories, 41 g fat, 7 g saturated fat, and 1,080 mg sodium.

BK Best Bet Tender Grill Chicken Sandwich

Burger King: Better Bet

The TenderGrill Chicken Sandwich on a Ciabatta bun is a juicy, grilled chicken filet topped with lettuce and tomato. Dressed with mayo, it has 470 calories, 19 g fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and  850 mg of sodium. Skip the mayo for a slender 320 calorie sandwich. Pickles, onions, and mustard add kick without too many extra calories.

Boston Market Worst Bet Meatloaf Sandwich

Boston Market: Poor Bet

The Homestyle Meatloaf CarverSandwich sounds wholesome, but “hearty” or just plain “fattening” might be better descriptions. It has 960 calories, 49 g fat, and 23 g of saturated fat — the daily limit of this unhealthy fat for most people. With 1,990 mg of sodium, it nearly tops the daily limit for healthy adults (2,300 mg). 

Boston Market bbq chicken sandwich

Boston Market: Better Bet

The Pulled BBQ Rotisserie Chicken Sandwich is a tasty choice at Boston Market. Roasting the chicken makes it moist and tender. It’s relatively healthy compared to some of the other choices. It has 730 calories, 28 g fat, and 13 g saturated fat. But it has a whopping 1,990 mg of sodium. Take off the top layer of bread to cut calories or eat half and save half for another meal.

Subway chicken bacon ranch melt

Subway: Poor Bet

The 6-inch Chicken and Bacon Ranch Melt is a fatty choice at a restaurant better known for its healthy options. This 6-inch sub weighs in at 590 calories, 30 g fat, 10 g saturated fat, and 1,360 mg sodium.

Subway Best Bet Ham Sandwich

Subway: Better Bet

Keep your personal calorie count low with the 6-inch Black Forest Ham Sandwich. This 6-inch sub has 290 calories, 4.5 g fat, 1g saturated fat, and 800 mg sodium. The restaurant has other low-calorie choices: roast chicken, roast beef, club, turkey breast, turkey breast and ham, veggie delight, or sweet onion chicken teriyaki. Top them with lots of veggies to keep them in the range of 230-380 calories.

Wendys asagio ranch chicken

Wendy’s: Poor Bet

The Asiago RanchClub With Homestyle Chickencan turn a quick lunch into a fatty affair that lingers on your hips.  Wendy’s tops their breaded, fried filet with 3 strips of bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayo for  690 calories, 36 g fat, 12 g saturated fat, and 1,630 mg of sodium.

Wendys Best Bet Ultimate Chicken Grill

Wendy’s: Better Bet

Wendy’s Ultimate Chicken Grill Sandwich boasts only 390 calories, 10 g fat, 4 g saturated fat, and 1,080 mg of sodium.  This simple yet satisfying sandwich of grilled chicken, lettuce, and tomato is topped off with tangy honey mustard instead of slathered with high-fat mayo — for a dietitian’s delight.

Sodas And French Fries

Side Dishes and Drinks Count, Too

Before you order, glance at the calorie listing to be sure your choice is a “better bet.” And watch menu items that come with a side dish. Sidekicks that send the calories soaring include giant drinks, fries, chips, and salads loaded with dressing. Better bets are non-calorie drinks, fat-free milk, water, and sides with fruits and veggies.

Lose It To Find It

When Jesus sent His twelve disciples out to preach and to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out devils, Matt 10:7-8, He also gave them warnings and instructions for their ministry. In Matt 10:39, after telling them that they must love Him more than their own family, take up their cross and follow Him, Matt 10:37-38, He told them that “he that loses his life, for My sake shall find it.” This is a doctrine in the Bible that we must learn and follow. 

You lose your life to find it – Matt 10:39 – In Jer 38:17-23, Jeremiah told Zedekiah, the king, that the only way he could spare his life and keep Jerusalem from being burned with fire was to go willingly into captivity in Babylon. He had to lose his life to save it. Zedekiah refused. Therefore, all his sons were slain before him, his eyes were put out, he was carried to Babylon, and then the city was burned, Jer 39:5-8. He tried to save his life and lost it.

In Lk 17:24-33, right before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, Jews will have to flee their houses and fields without turning back to get anything they own, or else they will lose their lives. They will find their lives by losing them. In 1910, a boy was born in Germany, into a prosperous Jewish family.

He was one of four siblings. In 1930, his sister immigrated to Palestine. Germany was very developed and Palestine was very undeveloped. However, in 1933, he also immigrated to Palestine, due to his concerns about Hitler’s anti-semitic views.

By 1939, it was becoming evident to the world that Jews were being exterminated. That same year, he received a letter from one of his German friends who were now in the Gestapo. Included with the letter was a two-week pass to come to Berlin and rescue his family from their planned extermination.

He pled with his family to leave with him and save their lives. They didn’t want to leave their homes and possessions, so they didn’t go with him. They were all murdered. If they had lost their lives, they would have preserved them.

In Gal 2:20, we are to be crucified with Christ to live. Jesus had to die to bring forth much fruit, Jn 12:24. And we must die to live. Paul said, “I die daily,” 1 Cor 15:31. The reason Christians don’t live the abundant life that Jesus promised in Jn 10:10 is that they aren’t willing to part with the life they have now. If you want to find this abundant life, you have to lose your life. In Mk 10:28-30, Jesus told Peter that men receive a hundredfold of whatever they lose for Jesus’ sake and the gospel’s.

You lose your wealth to find it – Heb 11:26 – Moses esteemed “the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.” He knew there was a reward for leaving everything he had in Pharaoh’s palace.

In Mk 10:21, Jesus told the rich young ruler that if he would sell all he had and give it to the poor, he would have treasure in heaven. Jesus guaranteed him that if he would lose his wealth he would find it. Prov 19:17 says, “He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.

” Prov 13:7 says, “There is that makes himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that makes himself poor, yet hath great riches.” The greatest investment you can make is to give to the Lord. There is absolutely no safe haven for money on earth. One way or the other, you’ll lose it all unless you give it to the Lord.

You lose your pleasure to find it – Heb 11:25 – Moses left the seasonal pleasures of sin to find real pleasure in the presence of the Lord. Ps 16:11 says, “You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fulness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” Moses was in the presence of the Lord.

They conversed “face to face, as a man speaks unto his friend,” Ex 33:11. In Ex 33:18-23, God’s glory passed by Moses and he saw it. In Zech 4:14, Moses is one of the two anointed ones, “that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.”

And in Mk 10:35-40, Moses will be sitting beside Jesus Christ in his glory, enjoying “pleasures forevermore,” Ps 16:11. In Lk 6:20-26, we see the contrast between those who get their pleasure from the world now and those who wait to receive their reward later. 

One will rejoice and the other will mourn. Notice that the ones who lose their pleasure now are also the ones who begin to “leap for joy,” now. The pleasure begins now and the reward comes later.

Conclusion: These three examples are so contrary to how the world seeks life, wealth, and pleasure, that worldly Christians will never believe what the Bible says about how to have life, wealth, and pleasure. You’re as unbelieving as the Jewish family in Berlin. And you are just as wrong as they were. In this life, the losers are the winners.


Trump Receives Prophetic Word: ‘I Am Giving Him a Second Win’

President Trump attended church at the International Church of Las Vegas (ICLV) while barnstorming through the West this weekend. During the service, he received a powerful prophetic word from Pastor Denise Goulet.

“We’re going to ask God to remove evil from our nation,” Pastor Denise said. “And we’re going to decree for the glory of God to come in our nation … Lord, be the wall of fire around the nation of the United States of America, and the glory within the wall. We forbid for the demonic plans of the enemy to come to pass, and we break forth the plans of God to make America great again, to bring righteousness and justice in our nation.”

After her husband, Pastor Marc Goulet, introduced Trump as “family” because this was his third time to visit the church, Pastor Denise also greeted the president and said, “At 4:30 [this morning], the Lord said to me, ‘I am going to give your president a second win.’

“Now, this has three meanings: A win, you will be the president again. … When an athlete is running a marathon, there’s such a thing as a second wind. Where you come to a point where you have no energy …. and you feel like you have no strength. But all of a sudden, the lungs of this athlete have been trained at high altitudes, and because of that, the athlete is able to get so much energy, wins or at least finishes the marathon.

“This is what the Lord’s saying. He says He has made your lungs, your body, your spirit, your strength—He has made it in such a way that you have been trained in such high-pressured places in the last four years, and even before that. And the Lord said, ‘He is ready for the next four years, and I’m giving him a second win.’ …And there’s also this: a second wind. If you add ‘d,’ it’s the Holy Spirit.”

Watch the full video to hear the prophecy (Pastor Denise’s prophetic word begins at 45:25) and to hear other decrees and declarations about President Donald Trump.



The Polls Are Shifting Dramatically and the Trend Lines Are All in Trump’s Direction

RUSH: I’ve got some polling data here, and then we’ll get back to the phones. “Trump reaches critical 52% approval rate entering the final election stretch — With just 12 days to go before the election, Trump’s approval rating has popped to 52%.” Now, that is considered — traditionally and historically — the Holy Grail of reelection numbers. This is Rasmussen Reports.

“The president’s rating jumped from 49 to 52%.” It’s a job approval poll. It jumped three points in the three-day rolling average Rasmussen puts out in its Daily Presidential Tracking Poll. So Trump is at 52% approval. That is a key number. Traditionally, if an incumbent president reaches 52% in the final stretch, he doesn’t lose the presidential election.

Fifty-two percent, it’s a magic number, and it’s that… There might be a couple of exceptions to it over the years. But it is firmly established to have happened often enough to be a key indicator. “In addition to the daily approval rating, Rasmussen and others this week have also charted Trump’s rise in the presidential race, tightening to two to three points with Biden.”

So it’s all moving in the right direction. In addition to that, Trump has picked up eight points in Ohio in one month, and the Drive-Bys are quiet. It’s worthy to note that the Drive-By Media is ignoring this. But they made a big deal about Biden being up five in Ohio, and now that he’s gone the opposite way, they are standing mute. They’re conditioning voters to expect Biden to win.

That’s what this all is. But I think the Trump rallies are making the silent voter more bold. I think so more and more people are watching that’s rallies. I think they’re getting a different psychological effect from them. “Fox reported Wednesday that its poll showed a dramatic eight-point shift toward Trump and away from Biden in Ohio,” and this is gonna get even worse after Biden’s performance last night about the oil industry.

This is big in Pennsylvania and Ohio and some of these other states. For the first time in four months, Trump is ahead in the Real Clear Politics average. It’s by less than a point, but everybody considers this the Holy Grail. The Real Clear Politics rolling average, the Poll of Polls, whatever it is. So there’s a Mollie Hemingway story:

“A few days before the first presidential debate, Fox News … released polling showing that the situation for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign was so dire that he was down five points in Ohio. Ohio! Trump won Ohio by eight points in 2016, but now he was down five with just over a month remaining in the race.

“Liberal[s] were thrilled! The result was major news, and journalists made sure to highlight the result. Folks at the Washington Post, MSNBC, New York Times,” da-da-da-da-da-da-da, “made a big deal about it. Fox News reported Wednesday that its polls showed a dramatic eight-point shift toward Trump and away from Biden,” and guess who’s silent? Drive-By Media.

The trend line is all in Trump’s direction, exactly as it was in 2016. One more. This is Rasmussen. This is the National Daily Black Likely Voter Job Approval for President, and this is something. October 19th through 23rd, 2020. On Monday October 19th, Trump’s approval number among African-American likely voters — job approval — was 25%. The next day, October 20th, it fell a point. Trump’s job approval among black voters, 24%.

This is likely black voters. But on Wednesday it began to change. On Wednesday, October 21st, 31% job approval among black likely voters. Then Thursday, yesterday, 37% job approval black likely voters. Today, 46%. So we’ve gone: Monday, October 19th, 25%; Friday, October 23rd, 46% Black likely voter job approval, Donald Trump. What happened? What happened? The debate happened? Fiddy Cent? What happened?

Something happened.


RUSH: Oh. We’ve got some new polling data in from Florida, and it’s Rasmussen. Let’s see… Trump now is 49, Biden 46 in Florida. “Trump holds a three-point lead in Florida, a state critical to whether or not the president is reelected.” It’s a Rasmussen telephone survey and online, by the way, of likely voters in Florida. It’s always the sample that you want.

You don’t want registered voters, and you don’t want registered adults. You want likely voters. “Trump is now beating Biden 49-46, 3% like some other candidate and another 3% are undecided. In 2016, Trump was under 49% of the vote in Florida, edging Hillary by 1.2 points,” so he’s ahead of the game today versus 2016.

“Eighty-nine percent of voters in Florida have already made up their minds who they’re gonna vote for. Trump leads 50 to 48 among that group.” Hubba hubba. “Among the 45% who say they have already voted, Biden has a 17-point lead 56 to 39,” but the people that haven’t the voted yet, wipe that out. So, anyway, folks, it’s all trending in the right direction.
