    Junk Food

    Hi
    I am wondering if we are still allowed to eat Mc Donalds, KFC, Hungry Jacks and Red Rooster.

    Thanks

    LOL @ your response Bec.

    You can eat take away, but of course remember not all calories are created equal!

    I didn't eat fast food until I got pregnant. They shut down our local KFC, so when I was about 9 weeks I drove poor DD at dinner time, about 10 suburbs away, for my chicken fix!!!!!!!! It was good, but I haven't had it since. Have had macca's and far too much pizza!! Why does it all taste so good???

    What about Chinese take-out? Do they still use MSG and is that bad?

    Hi, I've been warned against the new Deli & Salad's plus menus available at Mcdonalds & Hungry Jacks. The new deli rolls contain process meats and other precooked meats that may have been left in warmers to speed up the time it takes to prepare and give to you. The salads are prepackaged so these could also be unsafe as they are made and then left to sit. All the burgers/fries etc should be fine though. I am a big fan of Hungry Jacks Aussie Burgers, yum, lol. I am really missing the Italian Supreme deli rolls though with all the salami, lol.

    Best Wishes

    well i just ate subway for lunch and wish i hadn't bothered. i don't know if it is just because i'm pregnant that it tasted crap or what - but i might stick to the KFC diet i have developed lately.

    i couldnt get enough salt in the first tri - so i was at kfc far too often!! its best to try to get all the good nutrients too, which can be especially hard if you have MS!!

    good luck!
