16. Hanker for a Happy Meal.

Think small at the fast food joint. Ordering a small burger and a small pouch of fries can end up saving a small fortune in calories and fat. A big deluxe burger and super size fries can shell out close to 1,200 calories and over 60 grams of fat. Compare that to the smaller burger meal that can have you exiting the drive-thru with less than 500 calories and 20 grams of fat. Better yet, make the small burger a grilled chicken sandwich without the mayo (use the BBQ sauce), and order a small salad with low-fat dressing instead of the fries. Now, this is a happy meal.
