ORDER A KIDS MEAL..today my co-workers ordered lunch from a local deli, i ordered a kids turkey and cheese on wheat with organic baby carrots instead of chips..300ish calories..& im really full..even if you go to mcdonalds & get a kids meal [not the big kids meal, the regular one] & get apple dippers & diet soda, you get your taste for mickey d's with WAY fewer calories..i dont recommend doing this often with fast food but every once in a while wont hurt..its all about good choices & moderation

If you are tempted to go to the drive thru every day, do this instead. Every day pack a small cooler with healthy foods and drinks to keep in your car. Bring yogurt sticks (easier to eat), carrot sticks and low fat dip, low fat protein bars and bottles of water with you so you not be tempted by going and eating high fat foods at the drive thru and you will stay hydrated and not be as hungry. Try it, it works!!
Plus if you have kids, they will have healthy snacks available to them as well. Good for the entire family!
It took motivation to stay in the outside line on my way to work as I drove by the two coffee drive thru's for a few weeks. But making my coffee at home before I go (a la travel mug) and/or at work has been a huge money saver. I'm saving over $900/yr!
