"I Lost Weight on a Fast-Food Diet"
Day 2: "I'm Bloated and Lethargic"Breakfast/Lunch: Subway and Blimpie
The next day is pretty much the same. Although I'm glad to be eating fewer calories -- weight loss, here I come -- I can't say it feels all that comfortable. I'm bloated and lethargic, and it's only the second day on the plan! I shake off the negativity and put the pedal to the metal, as they say. Into the drive-through I go. A vegetable omelet from Subway holds me over well into the afternoon, when I travel to Blimpie for a soup-and-sub combo. To save calories, I reserve half of the sub for the next day.Dinner: Burger King
As a late dinner, I order a cheeseburger, small fries, and 1 percent low-fat milk at Burger King, but the server tells me that the small fries aren't available at this location -- only medium. I take the medium and leave about a third in the container, but I learn an interesting lesson: When you're trying to lose weight, you're often forced to summon up your willpower and modify. Sometimes you have to choose an appetizer for an entree or leave a large amount of food behind on your plate.
