Suggestions...

  • In N Out Burger has a "Protein style" burger. Hamburger patty wrapped in lettuce. I had part of one for lunch today while we were out school shopping.
  • Taco Bueno, Taco bell, Taco casa, etc... order a bowl of Beans and a scoop of taco meat or chicken meat.< br />
  • Chick Fil A ... kids meal with grilled chicken tenders and a fruit cup.
  • Grilled chicken breast from just about any fast food sandwich place.
  • Chipotle (you can even go to their website and plan your meal ahead of time!)
  • Chinese food... Pei Wei String Bean chicken or Mushroom Chicken

We eat out way too often but I'm learning to eat right when I go out!

You avoid fast food as much as you can, but if you're in a pinch you can order:

Burger w/o the bun(In&Out calls this "protien style")

Grilled chicken sandwich w/o bun

Chili (Wendy's)

Fruit& yogurt parfait

Steak or chicken burrito w/o rice (taco bell) eat the filling, discard the tortilla

Pintos & cheese (Taco Bell)

LJS has a grilled fish plate

Most fast food places have something you can eat.

But a recovering food addict going to fast food joints is tantamount to a crack fiend hanging out at a drug dealers house.

Just not a good idea.

I failed to mention that I ALWAYS have a Quest bar and crystal light pouches in my purse. If all else fails, I can always have a quest bar for a meal (for a snack I only eat 1/2 of one).

If you have a Jimmy John's nearby, you can order any of their sandwiches as an "unwich." An unwich is the same ingredients as the sandwich wrapped in lettuce instead of bread.< /p>

Subway! Anything they make a sandwhich out of they will make you a salad! I had a meatball salad one day yum.

My favorite is the BBQ chicken one. And Subway is great cause they have every topping you could want on a salad!

Ok so I know many are against fast food.... But mcdonalds let's you customize your meal on the website. I eat the grilled chicken wrap minus the wrap. Their website tells you the calories/protein for that meal. I get several of the wraps without the tortilla. Really there are several menu items (without tortilla or bun) that fit in our diet. Red Robbin also let's you customize your meal and gives you the stats. Love websites like that!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
