McDonald's - Get the ceasar salad with grilled chicken. The ceasar dressing is really high in calories, but the low fat italian is delicious and a great replacement.
Subway - Get the turkey sub, load up on vegetables, skip the mayo. If you want to cut even more, leave off the cheese too.
Arby's - As long as you keep the portions small you'll be okay. Get the regular roast beef, or if you really want fries, get a small order and the jr. roast beef.

Most any food choices in a Chinese restaurant are not very healthy because of all the fat, sodium and calories the food has. Even the foods that are high in veggies and low in protein are still not really healthy due to how they are cooked. I would say both of your options are equal in nutritional value so eat which ever one you want. If the restaurant has a 'steamed' option for veggies and rice that would be good to go with, and you could forgo the sauces that are full of bad things.
I don't think you can get anything healthy at sonic although out of the four, it is my favorite. If you are trying to be healthy, eat the salad options at mcdonald's and subway has lots of healthy items on their menus. I'd splurge at least once a week at sonic though. All that healthy food will give you the runs. A large Vanilla Dr. Pepper with Regular Cheese Tots and a Corn Dog. Must haves.

Subway or Panera are good if you are looking for fast food places that can be healthy, but when going to Arby's and Mcdonald's I would recommend getting something that is not fried, maybe a grilled chicken sandwich without mayo on it.

If you get a salad from any fast food place, make sure you don't eat any bacon or cheese that they may put on it. The salad dressings are often crazy high in calories, so ask them for some lemon wedges on the side to squeeze on the salad.

Almost every fast food restaurant has a healthy menu. Just look at it there is tons of good healthy food there.

Here's one of my favorite main-dish soups: Catch of the Sea Chowder
This is a wonderful, hearty chowder that makes soup a main dish. I love it using a variety of seafood -- a little fish, a few shrimp, a few scallops. The original recipe calls for using Campbell's Potato Soup, however I have changed the recipe to eliminate the processed ingredient.
1 cup Celery sliced
1/2 cup Onion chopped
1 tsp. Olive oil
1 large Potato diced to 1/2 inch dice
1/2 gallon Fat free milk
1 lb. White fish fillet cut in 1" pieces
1/2 pound Shrimp raw
1/2 pound Bay scallops
1 can (8 oz.) Corn drained
1/8 tsp. Black pepper
1 medium Bay leaf
3 ea Eggs hard boiled, optional
Sauté celery and onion in olive oil until tender in a sauce pan.
Add potato, milk, corn pepper and bay leaf. Simmer 10 minutes or until the potato is done.
With a slotted spoon, scoop out half the potato and corn and set aside. Remove and dispose of the bay leaf. Use an immersion blender to blend the remaining milk, potatoes and corn in the sauce pan.
Return the potatoes and corn that had been set aside to the sauce pan. Add the fish to the pan and simmer about 10 minutes or until the fish is done. Stir often.
ADDITIONAL SUGGESTION: You might try picking up a rotisserie chicken from the deli section. You can have it as is with a baked sweet potato, or shred the chicken and make quesedillas.
