Diet Talk from the Doc

Because of a bad economy and overall mood to save and not spend, major food companies are offering “deals” to entice customers to come in and buy.

For those of you trying to lose weight, you may be confused about just what defines a good food deal.

As we all learned from the days of supersized meals, what’s good for your pocketbook sometimes spells disaster for your waistline.

A recent article in the Chicago Tribune reviewed some morning fast food deals and I must say that I was impressed that the article included the meal calories along with price and taste.

From lowest calorie to highest calorie, here are some of the highlights:

McDonald’s

Egg McMuffin with 12-ounce coffee
Price: $4.55
Calories: 300 for the Egg McMuffin (without the hash browns)

Dunkin Donuts

Ham, egg and cheese English muffin with a 14-ounce coffee
Price: $4.09
Calories: 310

Starbucks

Artisan ham sandwich with a 12-ounce coffee
Price: $3.95
Calories: 370

It’s interesting to note that as the calories went up, the price went down on these so-called deals.

Whether you’re checking out some of the latest new fast food products like KFC’s grilled chicken or Quizno’s Torpedo sub sandwich, be sure to gather nutritional information along with doing a price check.

And, of course, we all know that if you don’t like the taste, no matter the price or the calories, you won’t go back for more.
