Mcdonald's Large Fry vs. Happy Meal Kid Fry

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Although I am aware that fast food of any kind (especially Mcdonald's) is unhealthy, I refuse to give up everything. If I deny myself all of my cravings then I will set myself up to fail (been there, done that too many times). So I have decided to allow myself some fast food once a week or once every two weeks. The stipulation is that it has to be within my specific calorie range. So, I have allowed myself a hamburger happy meal & this is the size fry that comes with it. It is very small but 100 calories beats over 500 just for fries. It's a big adjustment for me since I love to eat lol.. I am just happy to be able to still have at least a little bit of it.

    I was blown away by the size difference it gave me a wake up call on serving sizes and how easy it is to consume needless calories Thank you Nicole emoticon

    You CAN ask for no salt fries too!! Skip any dipping sauces and you have a straight potato with some non trans fat oil on it.. better than a kick in the pants and just enough carb to keep you going!! Great idea!!
