Jimmy John’s: Slim 2 Roast Beef on Thick-Cut Wheat

500 calories
15 g fat
1 g saturated fat
5 g fiber
35 g protein

We think the Slim 2 on Thick-Cut Wheat is the best option, although if calories are your main goal, the French bread is slightly lower calorie. We chose wheat because it adds a boost of fiber that our systems need. This eight-inch sandwich is sure to fill you up! If you really want to cut calories, you can go for the "unwich" option, which is a lettuce wrap.

363 calories
17 g fat
5 g saturated fat
16 g fiber

Moe’s allows you to make your own food, so your nutritional facts may not be the same as ours. For ours, we picked a steak bowl with black beans, diced onions, diced tomatoes, grilled peppers, black olives, shredded lettuce, a lime wedge, and guac. The guac acts as a “dressing” since the dressings will add unnecessary sugar and calories.
