    We have a MickeyDee's diagonally across the street from HQ. Getting something there or any fast food joint is refered to "picking up a bag of meat".

    Personally, I can't stand fast food, but if I had to eat at a fast food place, make it Wendy's.

    1. Arby's
    2. Wendy's
    3. Subway


    I am also a fan of White Castle and A&W, but didn't include them beacuse it's a long trek to any of them so I tend to forget about them.

    And I NEVER go to the clown place unless there's nothin' else.

    We've got an old "tin-can diner" in the area, called "Als". Best damn fast food restaraunt in the area. They have awesome food, but it'll give you a heart attack. Loaded with grease, oil, all the "good stuff" you shouldn't have. Oh, the fries are salted with real salt, too.

    Speaking of Als, maybe I'll slide up there tomorrow during my lunch break and get a burg' and fries.

    Sonic is the best. Unfortunately none in my town so I have to go with Arby's as my local favorite.

    I dont really do fast food anymore, never felt better either.
    If I do though its
    Wendys
    Burger King
    Mc Donalds
    There is no real favorite, just which once happens to be closest to me at the moment.

    If I am on the five O I job bring it from home or strictly a local sub shop or subway. I like to see there hands from bread to wrapping.
    I dont suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    Chic-fil-A, is my first and only choice. I usually do not eat at the grease pits of fast food.

    Gastroenterology Doctors have advised their patients not to eat at these places, as that crap will not digest properly. Causes acid reflux (Gerd).

    I was thinking shrimp sauteed with fresh lime juice, garlic, throw in some red chili pepper flakes, mushrooms, bell peppers.. and my mind is still working on the rest of the meal. I'll take a wander around Whole Foods in the morning and see what looks good. Trust me. I'll see you about 7.

    SB

    If you like shrimp, that would work well for your diet and by hot I assume you mean spicy. When you saute it, you can then use the browned bits in the pan to make the sauce with a little wine vinegar and whatever herbs you like ; that adds more flavor without heavy sauces and calories. I also like to add sliced endive, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, etc. I'll post a few ideas for you SB. Boneless chicken breasts and shrimp can be used so many ways you will never get tired of them and they will keep you healthy. Be back later. with more

    You are also more than free to email me as well SB.

    You are doing great on your diet and exercise. Have you joined the gym yet?

    Chic-fil-A

    I don't know how you can stand that stuff.


    For me, I can pretty much stand anything but White Castle and Chic Fil A. I think that Rally's is very underrated. Their spicy chicken is better than Wendy's by a mile. BK, McD, Taco Bell, Wendys, whatever is closest I guess. And I know that it is not healthy, but I need a calorie intake of about 5-7,000 calories a day.(Water Polo 0500-0745, Two gym classes a day, Swimming 1500-1800)

    Talking Uh Huh.......................

    Neat thing about this, I'm seeing names of Fast Food shops that I've never heard of. Chic Fil A is here, but being an old country boy, I know where the chickens come from, so I don't eat much Chicken. None from Fast Food places. Subway's Whole Wheat Rolls are good, and Wendy's has the better burger of Fast Food fame. And, Don't forget Pizza. Nothing like a good 10W40 with extra cheese and pepperoni to get those arteries opened up.....

    In Memphis,I prefer Krystals.They're what White Castle WISHES they could be.
    When I was a kid,we used to be able to walk up Summer Avenue at 9 pm to get a couple bagfuls of Krystals.My older sisters used to have to show that they had the money because the cooks didn't believe that two little girls(10 and 12)would be able to eat that many hamburgers.
    Here in Paducah,Hardees is what I usually get for fast food.
