not fast food - but the chocolate covered candies from the self serve bin at target/grocery are something I find too hard to resist. I get some once a week otherwise I would obsess over them and binge on something else.

Here is my solution, since I hope you are not trying to inspire people to think about and get their or someone else's favorite unhealthy thing:

If I am working late and haven't brought dinner and won't make it home for dinner or whatever i'll get:

1 double cheeseburger 440 cal.
1 grilled snack wrap 260 cal.
1 cup of water

or

1 double cheeseburger 440 cal.
1 small fries
1 light lemonade


That is 700 calories and okayish amount for diet plus it is $3 or less. In general I try to avoid this though b/c it is not very healthy. I think twice a week for a couple of BKBB is not a good idea, get in the habit of eating a healthy breakfast before you leave the house and go straight to work every time.

A couple breakfast burritos?! Why not just one?

i have to admit, stopping for breakfast is my weakness. I do it WAY too much. It's not healthy, it's certainly not cheap, but it's convenient. And it fills me up for hours, usually I don't have to eat lunch then.

I have been working on this goal since last November. I went two months without eating out, and then right back in the habit. ISH.

OMG I just looked those things up, you are eating 780 calories there with two BKBBs! (50 g. fat !)
Break the bad habit by eating a nice convienent breakfast at home every day- get a protein shake, some oatmeal, eggs, yogurt, cereal, fruit whatever is substantial enough but easy for you. Try 600 calories of healthy stuff at first to break the habit. And do not ever stop for food on your way to work! Ever.

You can do it!

If you don't have time for breakfast then pack one that you can take with you the night before. I put oatmeal, raisens, nuts, and cut up an apple to add to the mixture in the morning. Then all you have to do is add water and pop in the microwave.

Why not take a protein meal bar with you for a fast food idea! That and water will fill you up and be better for you!!

If the jump from a couple BKBBs to super healthy breakfast is overwhelming try getting Boca microwavable breakfast burritos or something similar.

I've been in groups with too many members who can't give up their near-daily fast food habits. Since I've never seen one of them succeed in losing weight before they finally give up and go away, I associate this behavior as a sign that someone is not committed to making healthy changes. You may think you are on a superficial level, but you're really not.

Is this thread serious?

First off, you have the ability to drive right past the King. If your excuse is that it is fast ans you just don't have time then might I suggest that losing weight and eating healthy is really not your desire.

Sunday night cook 2 cups of Steel cut oats and put it in the fridge.

Set your alarm clock 15 minutes earlier, get up, heat a scoop of the oats and stir in some cinnamon and a banana. Tak an apple and a handfull of almonds with you on your drive. When your drive by BK start eating the nuts and the apple and drive on by.

Be sure to flip the King off for me when you drive by for enslaving 3/4 of this natioin into Trans fat Hell.

On a side note, think of this the next time anyone craves burgers and fries.

Trans fat has a half life in your body of 120 days.
