My "two scoops won't hurt and neither will these french fries" approach to eating doesn't lend itself well to swimsuit season. Although the beach treks may have begun, there is time to make change. So, let me have it. What's that ice cream going to cost me in workout minutes? To tell us is Charles Stuart Platkin, also known as the Diet Detective. He is the author of five books and and host of WE TV's I Want To Save Your Life. Here is his report on what some of our chain-food favorites should cost us in time spent doing common exercises...

Our eat out nights usually consist of me ordering a spinach salad with either shrimp or grilled chicken. I stopped getting any dressing on the side and now just squeeze some lemon on the salad. Jeff will never give up his steak or prime rib, but at least he now orders a veggie side and a salad with no dressing too. Can lead a horse to water but can't make him drink it.. although I am trying lol Our families favorite quick " fast food" type meal is subway. 6 inch Veggie on whole wheat, no cheese, no mayo and lots and lots of veggies is my son and my favorite. Yum! In fact that is what we are getting tonight since Jeff is working.
