Fast Food Fat Loss Failure

Fast Food Chain Gang

Back in the nineties Fast Food companies tried to change. They tried coming out with lighter and lower fat versions of their sandwiches and tacos and everything else.

Know what happened?

The “healthier” versions on their menus failed miserably. And I mean miserably. They were all pulled and replaced by newer options that were bigger, fattier and more calorie laden than ever before.

Seriously, they stopped pulling punches and did what any smart business should: They gave people what they wanted. And in the case of Fast Food companies that meant adding as much mayo, bacon, cheese and beef as they possibly could.

That’s when we started seeing the Triple Burgers and Mega

Energy-dense foods, such as fast food (picture...

Burgers and tacos wrapped in melted cheese stuck to yet another taco. And people were more than happy to gobble them all right up.

I believe, fortunately, that we’ve come to a point where people have realized that it’s all just too much. To some extent people are waking up and realizing that they cannot afford to get sick. They cannot afford to eat garbage all the time. They are understanding it WILL catch up to them.

Kentucky Fried Chicken has been in the news lately because they are trying a new Kentucky GRILLED Chicken. Supposedly it tastes as good as their fried version.

Now I don’t know if it does or doesn’t. And to be honest, I don’t much care. You see, the fact of the matter is when people go to Fast Food restaurants and order something “healthier” like grilled chicken they typically off set it by eating every french fry in sight. Or drinking a 64oz cola.

There are better choices to be made. And if you plan your day you won’t be in a position where you have to gobble a meal down at KFC, McDonald’s or Burger King.

If there is a reason why some people succeed at weight loss and so many others fail it’s because of planning.  That’s it.  You can have the best nutrition plan in the world but if you don’t have your meals planned out for time and what you are going to eat, you are doomed for failure.

Planning your meals means writing down what you are going to eat and making sure that you have everything you need to prepare each meal.  Having a shopping list and menus for the next several days is a great way to ensure you will accomplish your nutrition goals.

Take out the frustration of not meeting your fat loss goals.  Make yourself a plan for what you are going to eat for the next week.  Make sure everything you eat is not processed (does not come in a can, box or ready to make from frozen).  Eat vegitables at every meal, along with protein.  Limit your carbs (grains, pasta’s, rice, potatoes) till after a workout or first thing in the morning.

Do this and you will see results in no time at all.  Now go make yourself a plan!
