    I loved the old school McD's. Many years ago as a struggling student I worked there. Back then (don't know if it's the same now!) you were granted points to spend on food. So on a break.. if I didn't bother with fries, and was working a long shift, I could have 20 old school nuggets with a chocolate fat-shake.

    Happy days.

    Okay, so here's the problem. People always want to eat their cake and HAVE it, too. We can see this problem all over the place: America is ripe with diet fads.

    One year, it's all: "CARBS ARE THE DEVIL: Let's just eat meat!!!!"

    The next it's: "MEAT IS TERRIBLE!!!!!!!! Let's use this special kind of oil!!!"

    Then it's: "SHIT! This oil is filled with trans fats - that's bad. Animal fat is good, but only in moderation. Eat more carbs!!!"

    After that, it was, "Carbs AND fat is bad, so we're going to put a lot of artificial shit in your food so that you have no carbs, no fat, no sugar, no salt, but it tastes just as good! Oh well, hell you might get a heart attack earlier, and you might get cancer when you're thirty, but the important thing is that you have no fat and no carbs!!! Ohhh, and NO SUGAR ADDED!!!! Just a bunch of chemical shit!"

    Then it was, "Ohhhh this chemical shit makes some people pass out or shit in their pants or maybe even get weird seizure attacks, so we'll reprocess sugar so that the bad sugar part is gone but the good sugar part is left, and then you'll have the taste of sugar without the sugar, but it's still natural and healthy."

    After that, "Ohhh don't eat certain vegetables - they're sprayed with shit, so just eat organic foods."

    Then it was, "Organic foods are just as bad because the wind blows the sprays to the other crops."

    So here's my solution: Don't eat meat. Don't eat carbs. Don't eat fruits and vegetables. Don't eat milk or milk products. Don't eat fat - any kind of fat - no animal fat, no trans fat, no veggie fat. Don't drink tea or coffee because it has caffeine. Don't eat sweets or sugar. Don't even drink water because who the hell knows where it came from. In short, don't freaking eat or drink ANYTHING. Then you can DIE!

    :rolli: Lord 'a' mercy in heaven above, folks, the REAL solution is simple.

    Eat a LITTLE bit (and I mean a LITTLE bit) of everything.

    - Eat a little meat and more fish
    - Eat some carbs (good bread, not cheap shit)
    - Eat lots of fruits and veggies (even if they are sprayed with shit, because chances are you're breathing in this stuff anyway, unless you're in an underground bunker with an air filtration system)
    - Eat some milk products
    - Yes, eat some sweets like a little piece once every two days, just to keep ya happy.
    - Eat out like, once a month or so, just to try new things. McD if you have no culture or have gotten drunk outta your mind; better: a restaurant with lots of choices, where you can actually enjoy your food with a nice glass of red wine.
    - Drink some milk
    - Drink lots of water (even if it does have shit in it, because chances are your cell phone or the air pollution is causing you more damage)
    - Drink a little red wine, a little beer, lots of herbal tea, and 1-2 cups of coffee;
    - And every once in a while when your throat closes up and you can't swallow, Schnapps does wonders.

    If you do all that and exercise 3-4 times a week, you'll be FINE!!! The weight you should be. And for all those who want a quick solution by putting foreign substances into their body and trying to eat 'healthy' McDonalds - you're outta luck. Because there are no half-ass answers when it comes to health and diet. So there.

    Uh, this might be transplanted in my Rant and Rave Section, because I just realized I'm kinda ranting a bit. :-/

    Fad diets don't work, that's for sure. Only thing that works is eating most things in moderation, avoiding a lot of red meat and fat, and taking a fair amount of exercise.

    When I do that, my weight returns to ideal. When I don't it gets bigger. Simple equation, really.

    Doesn't mean I didnt enjoy the old fashioned McD's when the time was right

    I could've said all that as well, LL, because it's true. But Jesus, I'm trying to prolong the life of my keyboard.

    I don't like new or old McDonald's. Almost every time I eat there, I get sick to my stomach, and I'm the kind of person that can eat just about anything and feel fine afterward.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Both are fine. I just wish I didn't have to pay extra to get a full slice of fake cheese on my Fillet-o-Fish now. :sad:
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
