Is McDonalds gone for good?



Recommended Posts

In a nutshell: mileage may vary.

Me, I can tolerate about 3/4 of a McDonald's hamburger and a few fries. Not even the kid-size portion of fries. So, while a Happy Meal might be ideal, I just get a hamburger and steal a few of hubby's fries.

My hubby is a fiend for hamburgers, McDonald's or otherwise and where we live there are a lot of well-known local hamburger places. We have them fairly regularly, probably once a week (more if I'd let my husband do it). For a standard 1/4 pound hamburger, I can usually eat about 1/2 of the burger and a few fries. I have also opted for a bunless burger on occasion and can eat a bit more of the burger, but still not the whole thing.

Now, if we are making them at home, I will eat just he patty with steak sauce (sort-of a steak burger) and I can usually eat the whole patty as long as I don't have any sides with it.

But... isn't it kind of the point of surgery to make you unable to eat the way you used to? If you can eventually eat a burger and fries and everything else you used to eat, it's going to be hard to lose the weight you want to lose and keep it off.

That's not the point for everyone.

There is misconception that some foods make you fat, and that healthy weight individuals don't eat those "bad" foods. When the reality is it is (mostly) about finding the calories that either keep you losing or maintaining weight. Also for me, and I sure for others as well, it's about finding a balance of foods that don't make me feel deprived.

Fast Food/Junk food addict here are well. Not when it comes to fast food restaurants or delivery foods - but in my own home. See some meals in the food pictures thread, lol. I use meat substitutes way too often.
