AT FAST FOOD! JUST FOLLOW THESE 5 RULES

Go ahead and eat and enjoy fast food, but don't stop counting calories when you're facing that menu board. To keep calories in check, follow these five rules developed by Dr. Jessica Bartfield, an internal medicine physician who specializes in nutrition and weight management at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital, part of Loyola University Health System. Five rules to follow when you're ordering fast food:

1. Select grilled rather than fried.

A fast-food grilled chicken sandwich has 470 calories and 18 grams of fat, while the fried version has 750 calories and 45 grams of fat.

2. Pass up the cheese, mayonnaise and salad dressings unless low-fat options are available.

Cheese can add an additional 100 calories or more per serving, as does mayonnaise, and you probably won't miss the taste when ordering the plainer versions.

3. Order the smallest size available.

Go for the single burger rather than the double, and order the small fries rather than the super size.

4. Skip the sugar-sweetened drinks.

Beverages sweetened with sugar don't have much nutritional value and don't make you feel more satisfied. In addition, calories from sugar quickly add up, leading to excessive calorie consumption, especially at restaurants offering free and unlimited refills on drinks.

5. Save half of your order for your next meal.

Bring your own take-home dish and scoop half your food into it before you even take the first bite. This will not only save calories, but also time and money.

Drivers License Photos

I got my driver's license yesterday and have this hilarious pic!
They told me I could not show my teeth when I smile. So I just concentrated on not smiling at all. How is your drivers license picture? - Craig

What is your eternity?

What is your eternity? 

Kankelfritz - waiting for the principal when he was a kid…

Craig - waiting for his wife to come back after finding out he had been drinking…

Amy - the last few days before having a baby

The time it takes for you to stop and the cop to reach your window.
The time it takes for you to cuss after you've backed into something
Waiting for the result of a pregnancy test.
Keeping a smile on your face until the flash
Waiting for your computer to work after is hasn't to check email.
A red light at an intersection when you're late.
A red light at any intersection 90% of the time
Waiting for the cable guy to show up
Waiting for a lady after she say's just a minute
4:55 on Friday
The day before summer vacation
The day before vacation
The beginning of a great kiss
Waiting to get your car fixed after an accident
Christmas Eve
Waiting for The first night in your own place
