Sandwiches like the Reuben, the Dagwood and the Philly cheesesteak are staples of a guy diet. After all, what goes better with a cold beer and the baseball game?

But these machismo-laden meals don't come cheap. Consider those sandwich favorites to be are pit stops on the road to a beer belly, or worse, obesity.

Even single-decker sandwiches can pack as much as 25 grams of fat, accounting for 50 percent of their total calories. It's not the cold cuts that make a sandwich fatty. It's the cheeses, sauces, and bacon strips that often get added to these lean meats.

As Good Morning America continues its Summer Weight Loss Challenge, through a partnership with Men's Health magazine, we took a look at how to make classic sandwiches healthy by adding flavorful, and healthy, ingredients.
