Whenever I want fast food and I`m scared of the additional calories and fat, I order a Kid`s meal instead =) The portions are just right when you eat it slowly and the calories and fat are slashed in half. Plus you get a toy!
This was my dinner one night when I was craving Wendy`s but since their original burgers are generally 380+ calories, a meal with fries would mean I would be consuming over 700 calories. It wasn`t worth it, especially since I didn`t need to eat all that food.
So I ordered a kid`s meal instead.
For Wendy`s, I had ordered:
Sea salt fries
In total, it was 450 calories and there was just enough food to keep me full.
Believe it or not, this entire meal had less calories than a regular 1/4 lb cheeseburger.
One thing I notice is that usually, people eat very fast when they eat at fast food restaurants and they feel a bit too full after. I learned that if I ate slower, I would feel fuller faster and I wouldn`t feel nasty after. So I always apply this rule when I eat at Mcdonalds or Wendys, especially for kid`s meals.
I love cheeseburgers and I always crave them. But because I don`t like gaining weight, I always look for alternative ways to "cheat" without killing my diet. The cheeseburger was a bit small but when I ate it slower, I realized it was enough for me. Not bad. I prefer Wendy`s burgers to McDonalds.
The one thing I didn`t like were the fries. They were nasty. I prefer shoestring fries that McDonald`s makes. I just don`t fancy straight cut fries.
