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!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
