Bob Down: People still believe fast food outlets' "healthier options" are actually healthy? Bwahahahahahaha (gasp) ha


I think the salads are the highest fat items on the menu at McDonalds.  All that ranch dressing.

log_jammin: My 12 year old son watched "Super Size Me" and now he refuses to eat fast food. I'm not discouraging him in the least.


Well its good that hes not eating fast food. But personally all I learned from that film was that if you force feed yourself crappy food even after you're full, you're going to make yourself sick.

Jon iz teh kewl: likefunbutnot: Grilled chicken southwest salad with Balsamic dressing at McDonald's has 325 calories, tons of flavor and feels substantial enough to call a meal. Yes, they're $5 but I am thankful that I can find that meal any time I want to have it or need to eat fast food.

I've lost over 150lbs. and I've kept it off and I eat at McDonald's probably three times a week.

stfu i eat mcdonalds everyday and don't gain a pound either
but i'm 50 pounds overweight


You seem to be kidding, but the truth is there. You can eat anywhere you want. Get it grilled, get the salad, put the dressing/sauce on the side. And then only tip the tines of the fork into the dressing.

Nobody said it would be easy. Or tasty. My aunt, my uncle, and my mother decided to have gastric bypass. I decided early that I would never look like them. I hate to say that, but it's true. I love them all and I respect their decisions. I intentionally limited myself because I saw what I could become.

They haven't been turning to "healthier options." They've been turning to cheaper options - which have higher profit margins, overall. Any health benefits are incidental.

Instead of a Big Mac meal super-sized, they get the cheeseburger meal regular-sized because it's a bit less expensive.

It's not health - it's cost.

We're still ordering the burger and fries, mind you. But we're going for smaller portions and shunning sugary drinks.
