I giggled when I read about the Taco Bell Drive Thru Diet.
Will it be added to the Oxymoron Hall of Fame alongside jumbo shrimp?
What Jared did with Subway Christina did with Taco Bell - lose a significant amount of weight with a diet composed primarily of fast food.
Fast food is cheap and convenient. I get it, yet I have to wonder why the drive through? Countless times I have observed that the corpulent tend to stay in their cars. Why not park and walk into the restaurant and burn a few extra calories? And while we're applying some logic, research proved long ago that eating at a table is one of the keys to long term weight loss.
The Taco Bell Drive Through Diet features seven Al Fresco menu items under 340 calories and nine grams of fat. Lest you think I doth protest too much, I took one for the team and tried the beef taco at 150 calories and seven grams of fat.

I gotta say, it had some serious crunch factor. The familiar taste of the ground beef, what little there was of it, was satisfying. All in all a lot of flavor bang for the buck, er, ninety nine cents.
I do not begrudge anyone doing what they need to do to lose weight. Christina openly admits she wants to be thin but doesn't want to give up fast food; I have confessed that I want to be fit but I don't want to give up wine.
Radically different approaches and we both have been successful.
I have maintained for three years.
Let's check back with Christina in 2013.
