test your theory. Eat one every day within your "alloted calories". Sure you won't gain.

there's no shortage of attitude on the forum today...

i would think that the fat content and amount of sodium and/or sugar as well as any trans fats that might be present would not be so easy to work off. i don't buy the theory that calories-in vs. calories-out is the only thing one needs to pay attention to when trying to lose weight.

I'm pretty sure this would do it.

Well for 3:37

I looked up and a McDonalds small vanilla triple thick shake is 420 calories. Not that it's the most healthy for you but if I had that with a McDonalds Bacon Ranch salad with Grilled Chicken I'd be looking at another 250 for the salad (minus 10 cause I don't eat the tomatos) and 40 for one package of the Balsalmic Vinagrette dressing I'd have all my dinner for 710 calories. Which I normally budget about 700 for dinner. So while it's not ideal to eat everyday, yes I think I could eat that dinner everyday including the milkshake and still continue to lose weight. You don't have to deprive yourself anything, but when you cheat you really need to plan well to not kill yourself and get the smallest size for your cheat so you cure the crave without killing the diet.

I eat burgers and shakes all the time. I do not cut anything out of my diet....and I am still losing as long as I keep up my daily exercise and don't binge.

I realise this is a thread about weight loss, but aren't you concerned about your health? Isn't the goal something more substantial than losing the pounds with as little lifestyle change as possible?

I would have to say soda - ALWAYS is the reason for me gaining weight.

I think allowing anything into your diet in moderation is okay. Be healthy 95% of the time and have the treats 5%. As long as it's not a regular thing it won't kill you. Sometimes when I go to the movies I'll get a kids size popcorn--doesn't do any damage. And if I know I want a really rich dessert or meal then I eat light at the other meals.
Diets don't last for me if I deprive myself of everything that I like.

No matter what you eat ( candy,popcorn, fast food, etc...) if you burn 500 more calories a day than you consume YOU WILL LOOSE WEIGHT
