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.

Now just show him "Super High Me" and he'll be ready to move to Portland.

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.

Pocket_Fisherman:  I think its best to teach rational and logical thinking, as well as a healthy dose of skepticism to what they watch.

Me too... that's why my kids get exposed to nothing but Ayn Rand and Glenn Beck.

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.

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

It's freedom fries atMcDees!

How are people boosting their profits by eating fast food?

Sounds like some kinda pyramid scheme.
