“Our fast “food” display is now 2 years old. The word food is questionable, since the bread-like and meat-like substances have not molded or spoiled in any way. Bugs won’t even bother with it. Please think twice about giving this to your kids. You have a choice, but they don’t. We truly are what we eat.” -LiveWell Wellness Center

Fascinatingly disturbing.

“What does this picture tell you? My doctor has had this “processed food” on her counter ever since 2010 and 2011 respectively. I asked her why she had it out, she stated “to show people what they are putting into their bodies”. This is man-made “processed food”, not real food. Over time real food will decay, grow mold and produce a decomposing odor. This “processed food” has not done any of that, matter of fact it has kept it’s original size, shape and texture. Your body has to work harder to breakdown and digest this stuff over real food. Since I’ve seen this, I have not had any fast food.”

Sick. I used to eat so much fast food but I can’t stomach the thought of it now, no matter how good it tastes.

White Castle: Chocolate Shake

Calories: 1350
Despite being served in whopping 44-oz. portions, this ice cream drink offered in the Cincinnati area (yes, White Castle changes its ingredients by region), may sound relatively innocent. But slurp on this: You’re better off eating 10 original…

How companies can stuff 1,300+ calories into a milkshake is mind boggling

McDonald's Happy Meals get apples, fewer fries

drueisms:

McDonald’s Corp said on Tuesday it will soon tweak its Happy Meals, reducing the french fry portion by more than half and automatically adding apples to the popular children’s meals, after coming under pressure from consumer groups to provide healthier fare.

McDonald’s — which has been taking heat from parents, consumer groups and local lawmakers over the nutritional content and marketing of Happy Meals — said it would start making the changes in September and the new Happy Meals would be available in all of its 14,000 U.S. restaurants by the end of the first quarter of 2012.

The world’s largest hamburger chain also plans a 15 percent reduction in sodium across its U.S. menu by 2015. Beyond that, it vowed to cut sodium, added sugars, saturated fats and calories in domestic meals by 2020.”

A good start, hopefully their competitors follow suit!

Michelle Obama is said to be “pleased” with the change.

well, it’s a start.

next time you’re about to supersize your meal, remember that you’re not getting a bargain, you’re just getting extra calories.

Healthy food is so much nicer to look at.
I love chicken nuggets and fries as much as the next person though…I lived off that shit as a kid

Tips for Healthy Restaurant Eating

  • Avoid anything “lightly breaded” or “golden crusted”. It’s just a nice way of saying “deep fried in fat”
  • Seek out options that are grilled, baked, broiled or steamed
  • Pick your indulgence. If you have some bread with butter, don’t have fries with your meal. If you have some wine/beer, try not to get dessert. Pick 1 or 2 things to splurge on and you’ll avoid overeating and still feel satisfied
  • Most restaurants are now required to list nutritional/caloric information. Pay close attention and stay away from any dish that tops 600 calories.
  • When ordering, request that the chef goes light on the oil/butter
  • Order an appetizer and a side salad instead of a main entree. It’ll help with portion control
  • Forget ordering soda. Water is free, has no calories, and fills you up, preventing overeating
  • Eat slowly. It takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to send a “I’m full” signal to the brain. Take it slow, and enjoy your food instead of wolfing it down
  • Split that dessert with friends. A couple of bites is all you really need. Or even better, order a mini-dessert that many restaurants now offer and keep it under 300 calories
  • Check out this book: Eat This Not That! for tips on how to order healthy at all your favorite sit-down and fast food joints
  • Stay strong! Just because everyone around you is ordering unhealthy dishes doesn’t mean you have to. Make a plan and stick to it.
