Want to Lose Weight in the New Year? Eat at Home

Gerard -- that BK picture just made me hungry. I eat just about everything at home so the best thing I ever ate is always something someone else prepared, whether it's BK, Pagliacci or Dick's fries.

Now I have to get dressed and go to BK. I think I have a coupon.

I wouldn't let the people that "work" in them places mow my yard, and you're gonna let them handle your grub?

That's a whole nuther level of retardedness.

Anyway, 3500 calories equals 1 pound.
1 quarter pounder is about 500 calories.
Eliminate 1 quarter pounders worth from your daily diet and in 7 days you'll have lost 1 pound, in 1 year you'll have lost 52. Fill that void with a quarter pound of water instead, your life will thank you.

I had to leave my old bakery job. It was hell on my feet and shoulders. Bakers are mostly skinny people who sweat it off in the heat and bustle. My new bakery job is little more than breaking out frozen doughs, pies, cookies, etc. mopping, cleaning and taking orders. I've lost 26 pounds just working, and not eating out. I do miss the sticky buns, though. They were to die from. Really.

Eat less, move more.

Look, it isn't necessary to order the biggest and most calorie-laden items on the menu. Go small, eat slowly, and stick with the plan. Your stomach will adjust and the smaller meals will be all you want.

My uncle Letsgo Lozko who raised bantam chickens for fun and profit once went on a chicken and beer diet.
Nothing but that and he lost seven pounds in just six months.

I have weighed the same weight my whole adult life, but every year I get older, my meals get smaller. It seems cruel, but, aging isn't for sissies. (Good for you, Jewel!)

My uncle Letsgo Lozko, he tried an experiment to make his chicken raising more efficient.
He took a few hens and cut their food intake every day. Just a little bit each day. He wanted to see how thrifty he could be but there came a problem.
He almost had them hens getting by with next to nothing of feed when they up and died. Fell over and died.

Don't eat out. You will save a ton of money also.

@snakepit, Time too.
I worked at McDonald's when I was 15, in 1970, and there was a 60 second turnaround on orders. Always.

They had a handful of menu items, no changes to any of them, all were less than 50 cents, all the workers were male, and the manager MANAGED the thing and did so like the old soldier he was.

Oh yeah, I made $1.25 an hour and was glad to have it and didn't give one shit about healthcare or time off - that wasn't the reason I was there.

Now you're lucky if you even get to order in less than 10, then another 10 to get the food that looks like it fell off the truck, and it costs $5-10.

Those places survive off the wallets of extremely stupid people.

@snakepit, I agree with you. My wife and I eat great home-cooked meals and always did even when we had 5-7 kids living at home. Buy a roast, a sack of potatoes, a bunch of carrots and a can of mushroom soup and you can feed a bunch with a slow cooked meal that even yields leftovers. Somewhere south of $15-20.00 can accomplish this - barely more that the price of a couple of "whopper" meals. People, stop eating roadkill and prepare your own food. It is good and waaaaay less expensive.

Sounds good. Might have to make use that recipe this week. Maybe use venison instead of beef...

I grew up on a bi-weekly meal of pinto beans, corn bread and green onions. Very cheap and good although you do get a bit of gas. Heheh.
