Welcome Weight Loss Wednesday gals!!!
Today, let’s weigh in on eating out.
Pop quiz time!
You are in a hurry and have to swing by a restaurant to get supper on your way to watch your kid’s ballgame. Which of the following would be the best choice when eating out:
- A bean burrito from Taco Bell
- A McDonald’s chicken sandwich from the dollar menu
- A small bowl of Wendy’s chili
- An oven roasted chicken breast sub on whole wheat with no cheese and only veggies and mustard from Subway
Most people would select the Subway sub. (Jared lost so much weight after all!)
Well, it weighs in at 330 calories and 5 grams of fat.
Perhaps you should choose Mexican instead?
Think again! That bean burrito is 370 calories and 10 grams of fat.
Save money and go for the white-meat chicken perhaps?
Not so fast! That cheap chicken sandwich is a whopping 510 calories and 26 grams of fat.
However, the Wendy’s chili is only 200 calories and 5 grams of fat! And it is also the best choice if you are watching carbs as well.
Well— WLW gals. Today I want you to talk amongst yourselves. What do you order when eating out? Fast food, nice sit-down or even your favorite coffee house drinks. And let us know how your week was too.
Struggles, victories, etc…
I stayed off my scale as planned for the remainder of February. When I hopped back on I had stayed the same. Now that includes the couple pounds I’d gained back so I still feel as if I am in restart mode.
How about you and what do you eat when eating out?
I just love our accountability group! Have a wonderful week everyone!
