    Pita Pit!!!
    Subway!!!
    Pack a Snack!!! lol.

    I try to keep some food in the car so I dont have to go out to eat. I pack my lunch to work everyday and always eat before going out. But if I have to eat out its either at subway or a place similar to it.

    Eating any greasy food just doesnt sit well with me knowing how hard I worked to get this far. It feels like im just putting the pounds right back on.

    If you find any good fast food besides these be sure to post it and let us know!!!

    Im interested in some alternatives!

    i have nothing im set to there but mostly the subs and salads. They dont have any burgers there so that keeps the fat down. I think all sandwiches are not fried so the only thing you worry about really is the fries and the soda. They have good salads there too.

    Might wanna reconsider that Arby's thing...pretty much their whole lineup is WAY worse that you think.

    Subway is still probably the best...
    But you still need to watch what you get there....
    I can rack up those calories as the poor sap behind the counter keeps asking me what else I want on it....lol. Its all about self control.

    Ok, I'll admit it. I spent $2 on two double cheeseburgers (dry) last night at Mickey D's. I took off the buns and just ate the burgers. Granted, I had an awesome leg workout early in the day and Im on the AD, but I can tell im definitely still below 10%. I have to resort to FF maybe once or twice a week, but I think if you know what macros are in the food you pick up at a drive-thru, you can make it work in your diet along with adjustments at other meals.

    every once and a while there is always that unpredictable event or that sudden craving that throws my diet off. Its always enjoyable until after... Then I feel bad for cheating on my beloved homemade grilled chicken salad...lol

    The mcdonald's new southwest chicken sandwich or whatever it's called is garbage. I'm sick of them stealing **** aka the dollar menu. Everyone knows wendy's had it first, but now wendy's is stupid and they're dollar menu items are like finger food. what the **** is that about?

    Anyways anytime i eat fast food it's only chick fil a.

    I watch the grocery ads for the best deals on chicken breasts or sirloin and buy like ten pounds at a time. If you cook it all off at once, julienne slice it up, and bag it in individual portions, it's great on-the-go. I Bring energy bars and whole grain bread for carbs, and try not to overcook the meat, chicken can have a little pink in the middle, in some countries they have chicken sushi, dry chicken is horrible cold.

    I do this with 20lbs of chicken a week (even when it's not on sale). Definitely a big fan of pre-bagging all my meals. I dedicate about 5 hours every Sunday to preparing all of my food for the week. Makes it so much easier to eat right...

The mostly opaque area that you see is the "glue" that is used to bind the turkey to the caragean and such, real nasty stuff. He also told me the wheat and white bread have sugar, HFCS in them and the roast beef is turkey based. Also, they hardly put much "meat" on the subs anyway. The chix is very highly processed and of low quality.

    Not to mention that you can get a real quick luge, sweat, and dirt in your sandwich if you aint watching around here,or some long hair up in that light mayo...damn, disgusting.

    I'll never eat there again...after that long stringy hair incident, im too thru with substank.

    Cooked chicken is good for 4-5 days if stored under 40 degrees, if frozen, it's good for months, and if the meat is "changed", (cooked burger patties turned into chili after the 4-5 day window for example), it restarts the time till it goes bad.
    Be sure to wrap everything air-tight and don't store uncooked meat above cooked meat. Individual portioning is the way to go.
