I've never done it at a grocery store but have done it at mom and pop gas stations. A lot of them are now carrying fruit and veggies.

My Market does not have a fruit or salad bar. No cooked foods to take home. I am not sure that would be a good idea for me. I would choose some wrong things and not get portion control. But that sounds like a fun way to get daily meals.

I have done this on rare occassions. It is possible to remain on track if you choose judiciously. Usually, what I take are items to blend in with things I regularly have on hand.

I stay away from take away stuff at the grocery store, as well as from 7-11. If I have to grab something, I get one of the lowfat sandwiches from Subway, no mayo, no cheese. I am very impressed with Jared. Subway found a gem in him! He's kept if off for several years now, and looks like he's lost even more weight.

Has anyone seen Alton Brown since he lost 47 pounds? You know he didn't do it by eating boring food. I hope he writes a book about his weight loss journey.

No, I haven't, but what great ideas when you have to be away from home.

No, I haven't tried that, fruit, yogurt and salad bar are OK but I'm staying away from those bars, they have too much junk in them (including sugar) and I'm also nixing deli meats (too processed and too much salt). Make your own turkey breast and keep/freeze it.

Sometimes, the supermarket is just too tempting.

Run in, grab a piece or two of fruit, a cup of yogurt, an energy bar, a salad at the salad bar, a turkey sandwich at the deli counter, and you're out through the express lane with breakfast, lunch, and snacks in 10 minutes.
