  • Cheers for this, I have been researching “diet how to lose belly fat” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Fonnna Peylizabeth Principle (do a google search )? Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend got excellent success with it.

  • Cheers for this, been searching for “diet to lose stomach weight” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Fonnna Peylizabeth Principle (do a google search )? Ive heard some decent things about it and my m8 got amazing success with it.

  • You should just rename your channel to “different ways to big mac” i have watched 6 vids and seen the big mac quesadilla 3 times and r other big mac recipes….. im no longer watching……. dont take it wrong looks awesome but get more variety.

  • Back when I was working at a school in a small town with only 3 fast food chains, the McDouble became a go-to for a quick lunch. 22g of protein and only 390 calories as is (less with mustard). It didn’t shatter my caloric limit, plus, it satisfied my cheese craving while only having one slice. I now work in a bigger city where I thankfully have much healthier options; however I sympathize with those who don’t and just need a quick meal with colleagues. It’s good knowing what ‘healthier’ items you can have at fast food chains to call upon when needed without guilt or shame.

  • Just found your channel a few days ago and wanted to say I love your content! I’m a petite gal who just started a fitness regimen in January and I love seeing how similar our thoughts on food are. I also track macros and calories and it’s definitely worked! I’ve lost over 13 lbs and now I”m just working toward decreasing my body fat percentage so I’m more toned. Keep on producing this awesome content!

  • Thanks for watching guys! For those commenting about the fries, 90% of them were eaten by my family and I. The few that were thrown out the window were picked up….and some were eaten by seagulls. Just to clarify.

  • These are lame and one of them is a Big Mac…
    Y’all want real burgers?
    Jalapeño Bacon Cheeseburger
    Cajun Burger(1/2 Beef 1/2 Andouille w/ sautéed Bellpepper and onion and pepper jack)
    BBQ Mushroom & Swiss
    Donut Burger


  • My favorite fast food option is none because in Germany the only option for a vegan in fast food restaurants is fries. Love that for me

  • We tried out Flame Grilled Glasses Meal at Burger King Salmiya Kuwait recently. It is so delicious, you and your family will love it for sure. Moreover, we had a great time out there.

  • Emily I’m so glad I came across your channel! So many healthy food swap ideas Since watching your videos I’ve swapped for turkey bacon (SO good) and have tried protein cheese. Keep up the great content! ��

  • You should rename this video to “How to Gain 80 Pounds In 12 Days” ��
    These gave me a heart attack and I’m just watching
    I dont care about getting stuffed by eating these foods, they look delicious!!! ������

  • 5:46 It’s funny we have to exert energy to do that “hey how are you?” “Good. And you?” “I’m doing good!” Thing even though we know what’s the answer 99% of the time. Especially when it’s between strangers lol It’s like a long polite hello or a way of telling each other you’re both trying to make this conversation polite

  • This was great, thanks, been searching for “get tight abs fast” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Wiyila Tenadison Principle (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? Ive heard some decent things about it and my work buddy got amazing success with it.

  • I feel like these guys eat too much chicken, do you have diabetes?

    (You can have diabetes eating too much of something, example: Eating too much bread)

  • You should train and eat like Arnold Schwarzenegger for a solid week. Track your gains. He’s the best of the best.

    Then pick 5-10 body parts and do a training regiment of each one for the person that is considered to have the best body part. Like Tom Platz quads, Arnold’s chest, Dorian Yates back, Larry Scott biceps, etc. It might be a lot of fun.

  • My healthy fast food go to is a burrito bowl from chipotle. Rice, barbacoa, fresh salsa, fajita veggies, and romaine. 430 cals and 30g protein.

  • I wish there was a chick Fil a in Toronto because even their fried chicken sandwich is under 500 calories so I think it is probably the healthiest option.

  • I do Wendy’s grilled chicken sandwich no bun lettuce for the bun It’s 210 calories when you minus the bun and a I get a side salad with it

  • Nothing is healthy outside and for the people who think subway is healthy, there breads have a good amount of sugar in it, plus it’s safe to eat homemade food rather than searching for healthy options outside

  • Before start I’m guessing it’s
    4th Wendy
    3rd mc Donald’s
    2nd subway
    1st obviously Starbucks
    (McDonald’s and subway could probably be switched (I realized 2 minute in so that’s why it’s edited lol)

  • I swear, these recipes are basically the high school cafeteria meets unemployed stoner meets single, hungry depressed dude.

    Not that I’m complaining. ^.^

  • Wendy is actually the daughter of the founder of the restaurant Wendy’s and she was skinny when she was younger but she is kinda thick nowadays but she is a red head��

  • Healthy Fast Food meals in South Africa:

    Burger King: Whoppers (with no sauce): 423kCal. 33g protein, 46g carb, 12g fat.
    KFC: Colonel burgers: 414kCal. 32g protein, 38g carb, 14.6g fat.
    Roman’s Pizza: Large BBQ Sparerib and Mushroom Pizza (per slice): 208kCal. 15g protein, 21.2g carb, 7g fat.

    All are good choices and I constantly change them up.

  • “if you eat hard boil eggs, then something is wrong with you.” says the guy who pours milk first in his cereal bowl before the cereal

  • The funniest thing when it comes to Will and his luck at being misunderstood at driv thrus is that he speaks very clear and coherent and very polite. �� I just genuinely think he is cursed and it makes my day! Lol ❤

  • Arby’s chicken bacon jalopeno wrap without the ranch is my go to. I work an hour away from where I live and tend to substitute one meal a day with it. Taking off the ranch subtracts at least 120 calories from it so it goes from 600 to 480 calories with 37 grams of protein and it’s pretty filling. I like to add g hughes sugarfree honey mustard to it sometimes. only 20 calories per serving, and it makes me feel like I’m Tiger Woods without the actual cheating.

  • How to make a food that will leave you stuffed for days:
    step 1. Pick favorite food
    step 2. Make it 10 times bigger
    step 3. Choose an food that is normaly meaty.

  • The Greek salad is very tasty here in McDonald’s Austria. Has only about 280 calories including dressing. Don’t know if you also have this?

  • Wooow! a very delicious food and interesting. Hope you all will visit my
    neighbor @ SimpleHomeCookingGuide. Thanks and welcome in advance.

  • A&W lettuce wrap double buddy burger no condiment, and tell them no salt and seasoning… Also by asking them for no salt and seasoning on the burger they will make you a fresh burger, so it is hot

  • Cheers for this, I’ve been looking for “exercise for toning abs” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Wiyila Tenadison Principle (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some great things about it and my mate got excellent results with it.

  • I’m glad you picked Subway as the #1. I feel like Subway is super underrated in how good it is if you are looking to cut or something. You got lots of fresh veggies, it’s very filling, low calories, low price. Meat is a little dubious but I haven’t died from it yet.

    Also Wendy’s is pretty good if you get a spicy chicken sandwich + chili. It’s more like 700 calories, but it’s really tasty and will also fill you up for quite a while.

    Surprised you didn’t feature Arby’s in this challenge. They have a lot of lower calorie items and most of their items have a ton of protein in them, more than any other fast food restaurant I’ve seen. A lot of people hate on Arby’s for some reason, but I like them


  • Tried the cheeseburger burrito, and the cream to patty ratio is too much, it spilled everywhere. I’d take down the flour, butter and milk a notch

  • Is it just me that noticed that the background music is really a knockoff of Shut up and dance with me. I dunno you guys think about it.

  • Ok, most of these are simply disgusting. They gave me hartburn just from watching.
    They are not for leaving you stuffed, they are for leaving you with diabetes.

  • Okay ladies and germs im actually gonna ATTEMPT to make the very first recipe…… ill come back with a update later hahahhaha…….


  • I actually work at subway and I eat subway probably more than anything else in my life right now, how sad. But I will definitely make a habit out of scooping out the inner bread.

  • Only way I can eat this is make it one layer eat with veggies and drink ginger water (one cup boiled water with chopped ginger) to aid digestion. Yikes that’s a lit of food. If I did make it I’d give to homeless.

  • End of video “Alright guys well I dont know what else to say”

  • The comedy on your channel is amazing and these are awesome tips! One thing that I learned that has helped me with 500 cal meals is that the regular hamburgers at fast food restaurants (the kinds that come in kid’s meals, also known as junior hamburgers in some fast food places) are only 250 or 240 cals. Two of those would be around 500 cals, or you could get one with some sort of side��

  • Wait 20 years.when you allow yourself 1 cookie a month.because you don’t want to feel like crud after you eat 4 cookies. This is just nuts.id be in the e.r.

  • I remember my friends told me bout you like forever ago and I started watching your videos forever ago but I know this is a cliche ass question…how are you not dead yet?

  • Every time I watch one of these vids, I just think to myself: “Man I feel bad for this dudes gut. Especially at night.” Cause whenever I eat something bad (a fraction of these vids), I get volcano ass in the middle of the night.

  • This may he the only challenge that I may be able to do from this channel.
    I would just switch the milk for water as milk has tons of calories and will fill you up quickly

  • omgggg why doesnt this subchannel get more love?!

    I understand how people might judge immediately only because it is a vegan/plant based focused channel but the recipes are great! and some you would never think “oh thats vegan”

  • Don’t let your chicken wait more than 2 days, thats absoulty unhealthy and disgusting. It will be full of bacteria and will taste diffrent.
