Instead of making dinner at home, it's quick and easy to just stop and pick something up at the closest fast food joint.  However, these delicious eats can have a large impact on your waistline.  It is likely that the more you eat out the more weight you gain.  Well, since eating out has been fairly often for me, I decided to explore and find out what was really in the food I was eating.

For some reason, I thought that salads were a healthy way to go.  However, in many cases the salads are more fattening than the hamburgers and not nearly as delicious.  So anyways, here are the numbers behind the food you are eating.  These are the most fattening things the restaurants offer.

As a general rule, if something sounds delicious or filling it mostly likely will fill you with extra calories and eventually cause an extra roll around your waist.  Be prepared the numbers may shock you.  Also, some of the things you formerly ate you may no longer want to eat, so it might be a good idea to hurry and run to your favorite fast food joint and get your favorite meal before it's too late.

If your mouth is still open from shock, you are not alone.  I still get shocked with this.  Many of these hamburger/sandwiches/salads if eaten may use half of your calories for the day.  So you may feast on these, but you might starve the rest of the day; if you're trying to stay within your calories for the day. Good luck! Many of your favorite food items are probably on this list, but hopefully, you can find something else you like just as much but with fewer calories.
