Verdict: Arby’s trademark roast beef sandwich provides a large serving of carbs and protein to fuel your muscles, with only a modest amount of fat. Turkey is considered healthier than roast beef, but the added condiments raise this sandwich’s fat content. Hold the mayo to eliminate 12 grams of fat.
