Is there a such thing as “healthy” fast food?
I think if you work hard at it, it is possible to eat healthy at some fast food restaurants. But to do this you also have to find the willpower to see those giant pictures of burgers and fries all around, and still choose to buy the less attractive healthy item. It’s not always easy, and recently it’s become a real problem for me.
After doing well at making healthy food choices and even losing weight, a few weeks ago I fell off the wagon. It’s so bad that I am actually afraid to get on the scale to see the extent of the damage. The crazy thing is, I’m not a fast food junkie (or at least I never was), but something called an Angry Whopper is turning me into a total addict. Seriously, I feel totally out of control. The worst part is, it was just a whim that I even tried this stupid thing in the first place, and every day since I have been wishing I could turn back time and replay that decision.
I really need to get a handle on this, and even though I know it is sooooo bad for me to eat these things, something is just not clicking. Ironically, it was about two years ago that I developed a similar problem with a Natcho Cheese Chalupa at Taco Bell. I think the turning point for me with the Chalupa was when I actually looked up the nutritional value (or lack there of).
