Lose Weight With Our Four-Week Diet Plan: Week 2, Day 3

Fast-food smarts, plus a hearty turkey roll!

Family eating

Each weekday this month, check out BettyConfidential’s exclusive tip from top trainers and nutritionists, and take a look at the daily three-meal menu from NutriFit, a health-conscious food delivery program that works with A-list stars like Angelina Jolie.

Tip of the day

Beat the drive-through. For many families, a trip to a favorite fast food joint is a fun ritual. Unfortunately, though, our regular cheeseburger or burrito combo meals are often the biggest sabotages to our diets. But don’t give up. Molly Wangsgaard, Program Development Manager and Corporate Dietitian at the Jenny Craig weight-loss program, says that you can still enjoy the convenience of fast food without putting on pounds. She recommends stocking up on low-fat yogurt and fresh fruit (put the good stuff in a small cooler if you’re hitting the road). “When going through the drive-through,” says Wangsgaard, ”you and your family can order a smaller sandwich or salad, and enhance the meal with the pre-packed sides instead of French fries or milkshakes.” Now that’s a happy and a healthy meal!
