Chick-fil-A Sets the Record Straight on So-Called ‘Chick-fil-A Diet’

Chain puts together a series of infographics for a variety of dietary needs

A disclaimer clarifies that Chick-fil-A is not suggesting customers only eat at its restaurants.

In response to Chick-fil-A customer Rodger Sherman’s tweet implying a ‘Chick-fil-A diet’ and the media coverage and responses that ensued, Chick-fil-A finally set the record straight in a release. The chain writes, “So let’s simplify this whole ‘Chick-fil-A-nugget-diet-never-intended-to-suggest-such-a-thing’ thing. Whether you’re eating more protein (no, not nuggets every three hours) or avoiding wheat or still clinging to that New Years’ resolution (very impressive, BTW), we have some menu suggestions below.”

Chick-fil-A is careful to add a disclaimer, which reads, “Please note that while these suggestions include options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we are not suggesting you eat with us for all three meals, 365, 24/6.”


A ‘Calorie Conscious’ section shows the possibility of enjoying three meals totaling 1,200 calories by eating at Chick-fil-A. A ‘Protein Power’ option breaks down protein content of selected Chick-fil-A meals, totaling 119 grams of protein for customers who eat according to these suggestions. Lastly, ‘Without Wheat’ puts together a series of meals demonstrating that “eating wheat-free is convenient and tasty” at Chick-fil-A.
