    I know none of us actually eat out except for Chik-Fil-a.
    If you have some time while waiting for another RJ political blow up hit up fast food websites and build a menu. See how many calories you could build eating there. Share if you want, but lets not use names just be generic.
    I found a Bacon Cheeseburger, Fries, Coke and a shake as a dessert, 2140 calories 990 cal are from FAT.
    I don't know why people don't think we have an obesity problem in this country.

    When you get it with a diet soda it cancels out all the calories and fat, obviously. :-)

    there was a study that showed people in general preferred the more indulgent treat they believed had more calories than the one they believed had less calories (both had the same calories)...

    I will admit that I occasionally eat fast food. I have really discouraged myself from eating it often by looking up the nutrition. I even get two of the healthiest things at Panda Express and its over 2,000 calories!

    Now if I HAVE to get fast food, I try to just get a salad from somewhere like Chickfila (even though they hate us gays). McDonald's Caesar salad with grilled chicken and their balsamic vinaigrette is actually pretty healthy too.

    Yeah, no Chik-Fil-et for me. I'm an exclusively Subway guy here these days.

    btw the Chick-fil-a was sarcasm. I live in Atlanta the home of it. I like to bring it up to remind people.

    In my research, be very very careful about things like "Market Fresh" from Arby's.
    You are better off with a Roast Beef Mid size and some curly fries.
    Feel good my ass!

    McDonalds Grilled Snack Wraps are actually perfectly healthy for you, check them out! You can get Ranch, BBQ or Honey Mustard.

    This thread makes me hungry. I think I'll hit up wendy's on the way to work for a grilled chicken Caesar salad and a baked potato.
    ...for a whopping "very few" calories (too lazy to look it up).

    I am going to try El Pollo Loco today for lunch. Their Pollo Bowl has 607 calories, 10 grams of fat, and 40 grams of protein. Not bad! A lot of carbs though but I plan on burning those up today after work

    As far as the McDonald's snack wraps that someone mentioned, the Wendy's go wraps are better and better for you. Just so ya know...

    all over NYC sweet potato fires have taken over. Still fried still bad for you.
