Back before becoming health conscious (well I guess I was always conscious of what I ate, I just didn't care) I would now and again cruise thru McD and just get four McDoubles for $4:
1560 calories, 116% fat, 44% carbs, 140% sodium

It's easy enough to buy (relatively) cheap and far healthier foods at the supermarket, stuff that doesn't take long to prepare. My brownbag for the past 5 months has consisted of a banana, a turkey or ham sandwhich, yogurt, wheat thins, and a diet soda. I make that lunch in the time it takes my coffee to brew each morning.

400 calorie dinner? What are you, a woman?

Yeah exactly. I eat a lot of bad stuff, I just prepare it myself because I can control the portion size, sodium and etc. Bacon every few days, omelettes, italian food, stuffed chicken breasts, etc. I've always found the people who eat the most fast food are usually the ones who simply don't know how to cook. It's a shame because you can eat way better food and still shave off calories. I used to eat fast food in college when I didn't know how to cook but back then it was a lot cheaper too. It feels like these days for what you get you can hit the grocery store and get several meals worth.

Brown bagging lunches saves you a fortune and inches off your waistline when you hit your 30s too. I still eat out once in awhile to socialize with people at work, I just tend to do it when they're going to actual restaurants to eat.
