I've learned that when I'm craving something, it doesn't go away til I eat it. If I don't, I just eat a bunch of [censored] that doesn't satisfy me, and those calories can add up to more. How about you make your self one with half ground turkey, half beef? I like veggie burgers too. Try them with salsa yet?
Rosie, a small cheeseburger is not a bad thing. It's those super-sized loaded burgers with fries & shakes or sodas that make us fat. A correct size for a cheeseburger is about the size of your palm.
If you ignore your cravings, that can lead to pigging out and eating everything in sight.
I'm a big believer in allowing yourself to eat treats occasionally for long-term weight loss. That way, when you reach your goal, you don't go crazy eating everything you "gave up" and gain it all back. The key is to learn to limit treats (even like a cheeseburger) to occasional splurges, not everyday fare.
That is so true. Everything in moderation is a good thing. Why not have a regular cheeseburger, cut it in half and eat a big salad or plate of veggies with it? Do the same thing tomorrow with the other half. I'm going to try this myself for lunch one day.
Nowadays, the burgers in restaurants are too big, 1/2 pounders are obscene for any woman watching her weight. My sister and I split large sandwiches all the time. That way we can afford to eat the french fries too.
Since I watched Super Size Me, I haven't eaten any fast food burgers. Since I read the book, I haven't eaten any fast food at all. It's funny but after a while, when you walk past the shops, the smell is awful, whereas before it was tantalising.
I prefer to make my own. Some delicious mince, add some pesto, mix together, and serve in a scrumptious bun with salad.
