    choosing the lesser of two evils

    Primal Fuel
    hi everybody, sometimes one has to eat outside home, not because of the desire to cheat, but because of the social demands of the city. so which do you think is worse, sweets (desserts, cookies, ice cream) or fried food (french fries, chicken, etc)?

    I would check both foods for bugs. If there's any bugs in them, eat the one that has the smallest bug. So, in other words, the lesser of two weevils...

    Couldn't resist

    Sugar is worse for weight gain, bad oils worse for health IMHO, so I would probably go for fried food.

    IMHO wheat is the worst for both, weight management and health. And combining it with crappy oil would be a recipe for disaster.

    I'd choose sweets as a social treat given those choices. The smell alone of anything fried is revolting.

    i'd absolutely go with sweet over fried, but you can narrow it down further. if you go sweet with no wheat, you're doing the best - ice cream! honest, real ice cream, is not that bad at all. now that doesn't mean that most of the stuff out there is going to be high quality, so caveat emptor.

    on the other side of the coin, there's a place here in LA that does french fries in real, rendered LARD. that's right - potatoes, salt and lard. in that case, we have a clear winner.

    If you live in a city, you should have healthier options than that. Check out the grocery store -- smoked salmon, piece of cheese, olives, greek salad, cream cheese -- all for about $8.00 /Lu
