    The last time I went to a subway months ago was my last. I watched them prepare the sub. When the girl placed the cheese and meat on the sub, I could swear I could see right through the thin slices layered 1/8" thick. You could see the sub was 90% bread. My comments about more filling in the sub were returned with basically "no", even if I offered to pay more. I left the line and walked away.

    I drink more water to subside the hungers sometimes.

    Absolutely no sodas! Especially diet sodas. My wife and a friend are type 2 diabetics because they would drink a six pac of those a day- in my opinion.
    Keep some saltine... or salt free saltine crackers in your truck...... several times during the day just grab a couple...

    They will keep you feeling hungry.

    You got that right. Nothing good there.

    Refined wheat might be a great survival food, but there are precious few in the United States of America that qualify for being at the level of survival status unless they want to be.

    I don't think that's true - I think there are too many hungry people in the US. Far too many. And I think a lot of them are children.

    Which is one of the reasons I am against, so-called; foreign aid. When the last American pushes back from the table and says: That's it - I can't eat another bite. That is the time we can see what's left to bribe other countries to pretend to like us.

    I can agree with you on several points. Problem is that the food is there, obviously not the best of the best, just that some do not want to put up with the 'bureaucracy' to get it. Whether it be welfare, other social aid, the local church, the local soup kitchen, etc.

    One of the problems is that if you're not getting proper nutrition, that makes it harder to make the decisions to get the proper nutrition.

    One of my biggest problems is the generational thing. Children making babies that don't have a clue how to take care of themselves much less others. Can't feed themselves; or their babies.

    Yes; but pretty much everyone discovers all on their own that they love effing. All the other stuff has to be taught - and it isn't.

    Lately ive been taking salad... pull apart a heart of romaine, cut up some celery, sprinkle some matchstick carrots, and maybe even bring chopped up chicken in a zipper baggie.

    Another idea, on a piece of flatbreat or naan, some pieces of chicken, sprinkle cheese and spices and toast in the mini oven. I don't mind a cold-once-toasted sandwich.

    It sucks, but fast food and refined sugar is addicting so I just need to stay away from it.

    I pack all my lunches in the morning before work now. I used to only eat fast food; stopped that about 15 years ago. So I literally had not had a Taco Bell taco in that amount of time. I used to get six of them for lunch. Think they used to be something like 59 cents each. Oh man, I could wolf those babies down. And loved every bite!

    So I had been sort of having a craving for them again. Cravings lasted about a year before I gave in. Even knowing that their 'beef' was less than 50% real meat. So a couple of months ago I bought three of those tacos. They were pretty gross. Fast food really tastes almost like crap once you start eating healthy.

    I can definitely see that.. just got to break the habbit. Its so easy to go through a drive-thru for 5 bux than to spend 30 mins packing a lunch. I like the 12v crockpot ideas... im going to check them out.

    Seems like there was a 'craze' about Hot Pockets a couple of years ago. Didn't have a clue what they were, just seemed to hear people talking about them in person and on the radio. Then I asked my better half if she knew what they were.

    She said said yes, they have them at work, I'll bring one home for you if you want. But you won't like it. I said sure, I'm curious what they are. She was right. Mostly just refined white flour and fat wrapped around some really gross goo that we are probably supposed to believe is cheese made from dairy and bits of stuff that was likely cat food we are probably supposed to believe was ham.

    And people thought that stuff was tasty? I honestly couldn't believe how bad is was after hearing everyone rant about how good they were.
