An Australian fitness coach has become a social media sensation, after recreating iconic fast food at home, for a fraction of the calories.

Bec Hardgrave has created ‘fakeaway’ recipes for menu items hailing from Grill’d, Red Rooster, McDonalds, Domino’s, Boost Juice, Starbucks and KFC. And they have us salivating!

The qualified health and fitness coach has amassed a following of more than 70,000 followers on TikTok and almost 80,000 on Instagram with her healthy hacks for fast food favourites. Here’s a look at some of her most popular recipes:

Grill’d Fakeaway

Usually the popular Summer Sunset regular burger meal at Grill’d is more than 1200 calories, but Bec’s version, with ingredients from Woolworths, is just over 600 calories. And that includes chips!

 

Bec also makes a fakeaway version of the Grill’d Sweet Chilli Chicken burger, which comes in at 435 calories. And she’s also mastered the famous (and delicious) Grill’d chips, using frozen chips cooked in an airfryer and a combination of herbs. They’re just 146 calories – YUM!

McDonalds Fakeaway

Of course, Bec had to tackle the golden arches, recreating a McDonalds Big Mac burger using ingredients from ALDI. It comes in at 420 calories, with 30g of protein.

She also whipped up a Maccas Filet-O-Fish and a McChicken burger using ALDI ingredients.

Red Rooster Fakeaway

More recently Bec has taken on Red Rooster’s Flayva Wrap, making it for just under 500 calories using ALDI ingredients.

  • These are great. Diet is all about balance, and making healthier versions of your favourite take away meals is a great way to do that! Plus you save a lot of money which is a bonus!

  • Wow I had no idea Woolworths had organic chips. Will be trying these for sure. I really like their macro range.

  • Awesome ideas! However part of the pleasure of takeaway is not having to cook.

  • I always love looking at the ingredients list when people make low calorie version of things.
    Interesting to see that it’s really all in the cooking like choosing to bake something instead of deep frying it etc.

  • How clever! Never knew how simple it was to recreate at home

  • I love this! Not only for the health & money saving benefits but because we live over 80km from the newest “takeaway joint” it’s always so hard to get an takeaway dinner on those nights when you just want something easy!

  • These sound way better than the fast food options

  • Love it! Can see the family loving eating these recipes and so much healthier for us all!

  • These are all awesome and I bet wayyyy more delicious

  • Frankly, just making it yourself from scratch probably improves the health benefits a lot.

  • The chips oook amazing! Love the ideas and it’s probably a cheaper option and you can make more.
