Burger King restaurants are now letting you have it your way, even if it’s the low-fat way.

The fast food chain is rolling out a healthier alternative to the sinful drive-through treat, meet the low-fat French fry.

Starting Tuesday, you’ll be able to get your fingers on their new “Satisfries.”

BK officials said the new crinkle-cut fries will have 40 percent less fat and 30 percent fewer calories.

The fries are to be less greasy than their current relative because the potatoes are thinly battered to absorb less oil.

The new fries contain 190 calories, 8 grams of fat and 210 milligrams of sodium per value size serving.

Satifries contain 6.3 grams of fat per 70-gram serving compared to 11.2 grams of fat in McDonald’s fries, according to Burger King.

They are 150.5 calories per 70-gram serving, compared to 226.8 for McDonald’s same offering, according to the company.

In another experimental move a few months ago, Burger King launched a hamburger with fries on it for $1.
