Interestingly you can swap your Combo at Carl’s Jr.’s secret menu for a healthy alternative. Currently, at any Carl’s Jr. store you can swap out fries and soda for a better item that is much healthier. To achieve this, get your salad and bottled water instead of the sugar-filled beverage and greasy fries.
This item is incredible whether you prefer to eat a salad instead of the fries, or you are on a diet, this is the best option for you. Typically you can order a side salad and then get a cup of water to fill your soda fountain. Generally, it is cheaper than the combo but is classic if you upgrade to bottled water.

The burger is huge and a great idea if you are a heavy eater. It will fill your belly and at an affordable price.

In case the barista or the waiter will not make the item for you, order the two separately and you will effortlessly combine them to get the item.

Let’s say you have visited the Carl’s Jr. store and you wish to save a few calories on your menu. The trim It or the Low Carb It is a perfect option for you. Both options offer you a drop in the total calorie count in your meal in several ways. For the trim option, you are guaranteed to get rid of about 300 calories from your hamburger buns. With the Trim It, you will cut way much more calories from the fats and only a few calories from the proteins. With the Trim It, you have an added advantage since you get a wheat bun as a bonus which is healthier.
A free tip with this item: If you do not wish to trim your burger you can try something else. It is not the same as Trim It since with Trim It, you get a chicken patty. But there is a good chance that you can substitute the hamburger patty for a Turkey patty.
The secret with Trim It, you make a sandwich that is lower in calories or fat. Therefore, there is no cheese or mayonnaise, chicken, and wheat buns instead of meat. It is very easy to order this since you ask the person behind the counter to “Trim It” when you are ordering your burger.

This is something you can do at other stores, but with this particular one, it will go smoothly without any hitch.
You also know that by removing the meat or substituting it, it will be cheaper. The big secret is removing or rather substituting your meat with a vegetarian option that is available. The item is not very popular but what we are sure of is that you will get it. To order this, simply ask the barista to “veg it” when placing your burger order.
Low Carb It
Although the Carl’s Jr. secret menu is quite new, there are high hopes that it will go on growing with time.

The best part is that this burger saves a lot of calories and carbohydrates. To be precise the low carb saves you about 300 calories and up to 48 grams of carbohydrates that have been removed by swapping out the lame buns for amazing crisp lettuce.
