    Great....I read this just as I'm heading off for 4 days of eating out at every meal! Haha. But this is a good eye-opener...definitely gives me the motivation to eat more at home. Yikes. That was pretty scary.

      That's just what I needed to get me back on track. I might never eat out again

        Wow, pretty gross. I barely eat out but I'm going to have to change that to never.

          I live in NY and when you go to Mickey D's or Burger King now you see the full fat and calorie content. It is disgusting! It makes you want to throw up!
          I will say we have a very good mayor who makes good social laws. People may not like the government butting in but his policies have worked significantly. You should see the smoking campaigns they have here. They literally have huge billboards of a lady w/amputated fingers due to smoking. It really makes you never want to smoke again.

          Thanks to Amy (Amy&Andy) I have started to change my eating habits significantly. I am a huge "eat-out" person b/c I am always on the go but I have since stopped eating out as much and I am trying to eat more clean (organic and not as much animal products). I am slowly trying to ween myself off animal products since there is so much hormones and crap in them but its a lifestyle change and its hard. But you feel so much better once you start changing your eating habits!

            My FI loves eating out, and living in NY it's almost impossible not to. UUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH! Even salads at these places are crazy calorie filled!

                  Oh, how I miss Panera Bread. There none in NYC. When I was in TX, I was obsessed with the Turkey Bacon Bravo sandwich. I'm too scared to go look and see how many calories it actually has. So maybe it's a blessing in disguise that I can't get it here. Hmmm...

                      Since I live in a small town, we have limited choices for eating out, but we do still have high calories resturants, including McDonald's. Actually we have 2 of them because we have one in the Walmart too. Usually if we eat out, we go for Chinese food, and usually to the one buffet which is bad, but I try and control myself!
