I tried the Tokyo Joes Mahi Mahi Salad today. I only ate half with the dressing on the side and it was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend it if you're looking for healthy fast food.

I was never much of a fast food person to begin with...the last time I had any was a little over a month ago and it was Arby's I do believe..LoL. I got the Rye wrap. I'm bad about resturants.

We still eat fast food occasionally, but I try to make wise choices. I love the McDonald's Asian Chicken Salad too, but I never use more than a quarter of the dressing they give you. Also if you order Taco Bell, you can have your Tacos made Fresco style and they are only 150 calories each that way. It's served without cheese and instead has a fresh chopped fresco style salsa on it. I love those!!! Occasionally I break down and have a burger but I usually go to Wendy's for those and have the junior bacon cheeseburger which isn't to awful in calories. I almost never eat fries now though.

I'm pretty annoyed with Starbucks at the moment though. I went in the other day and usually only order a Cafe Americano, but decided to indulge in a small Cinnamon Dolce Latte with sugar free syrup and non fat milk. They had some "healthy choices" in their baked goods, so I decided to also have the Honey Wheat Scone. I only ate about 3/4 of it and it wasn't large to start with. I got home and looked it up to discover it had 650 calories in it. So much for the "healthy" choice. I thought that was horrible misleading!!!

Last time was a week ago (NEVER AGAIN!) And the time before that had to be at least 4-5 mos...

I'm not really a fast food person. It never fails, I am always sick, or feel sick after eating it!

I actually went to Wendy's tonight and ordered the chicken BLT salad w/ an unsweetend tea. After dinner I decided to go on-line to see the difference in calories etc. of the salads and was shocked to see the salad was over 600 calories! Ouch! emoticon

I track everything I eat and have made a binder full of printouts of all the nutritional info from all major fast food chains and some restaurants. Anytime my hubby has a craving for something, I look thru my binder and tell him what I can or cannot have and he gets it for me. If we are going to sit down and eat, I look thru my binder before leaving the house.

I stop and get it every now and then but I make sure to track it and stay within my range. I already know what I can get at each place I go to in order to be okay.

We (dh and I) are used to eating Fast Food a lot. With busy lifestyles, that seemed like the easiest thing to do... Well, now we're both on here, determined to get back on track.

I've been browsing the various fast food restaurant's nutritional information, and have been surprised (I know, I shouldn't be) at just how bad fast food really is. Even the healthy choices it seems are packed with sodium. When your sodium intake goal is set to around 2000 or below, it can easily become a problem at fast food restaurants.

Example--We did have a busy day Tuesday, with time to eat, but no time to cook... so I went to Subway. I figured if Jared could lose all that weight on Subway, then Subway wouldn't hurt my goals. I was wrong... As I looked at the subs listed under 6 grams of fat or less, they still each had at least 300 calories and sodium levels starting around 1000!!! I was disappointed to see that.

So, a place like Subway is okay, if I've planned out my entire day and know that my other food will not up the sodium.

However, a place with actual fast food... I'm going to have to avoid those. With healthy food I can eat more. With fast food, it would eat up my intake of things like carbs and sodium faster than a speeding bullet.

More power to those of you who can, I can't.

For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord..." Jeremiah 29:11

~thank goodness someone does!~

Kay: Request your meals w/o mayo

And like Rachel said, I eat Fast food whenever I have a craving for it, I simply check out the nutrional information of everything I eat. You can incoroporate EVERYTHING into your diet if you have the facts.

I like to eat at places that I can get the nutrition info for too. I love Panera Bread! So many places are adding nutrition info to their websites it's really great.

Well, I can count on 1 hand the times I've gone out to eat since the beginning of October. It has really made a difference, both health-wise and in saving money. My new rule is this: when you are deciding where to go, ask them if they have a nutritional guide. If not, WALK OUT!! I will not order/eat food that I can not accurately track. You can also look on line. A couple of good ones: Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, Wendy's and Panera Bread. I want to see what to order before I eat so I can consciously make good choices.

I eat fast food a couple times a month, but I always make good choices. For example: At McDonalds, I order the Aisian Chicken Salad, which is less than 400 calories and has a lot of stuff in it that's good for you. I also eat the fruit and yougurt parfait and the apple walnut salad, and the kids apple dippers. Sometimes I get the grilled chicken sandwich, and I scrape off most of the mayo and then eat it with lettuce, tomato, and half of the bun. I will also get an egg and cheese on english muffin at Dunkin Donuts sometimes. When I first stopped eating fast food it was hard to order the good choices, because what I really wanted was the Big Mac. But after a while of not eating fast food and eating healthy at home, I found that I could go into a fast food place and I actually wanted to order the most healthy thing on the menu. So I guess you could say it gets easier. Some days I really have a craving for a cheeseburger and fries, but I know I'll feel like crap if I get it, so I don't.
