Best Diet Tip of All Time

Eat What You Can Burn

A FIVE GUYS burger with fries = 1,460 CALORIES. That could take 14 MILES to WALK OR RUN OFF!

Know what it takes to erase extra calories:

    You must have seen me yesterday @ Five Guys- I did have water with lemon .But I only had the ‘little Burger” and not the double-and only 1/3 of the fries. Nothing for the rest of the day.

  2. OMG! I had no idea 5 Guys was that bad. Well, maybe I did but I don’t eat there anyway. 🙂 I think it’s a good idea to think about calories in vs. calories out before you put it in your mouth!

  3. I love this

  4. No matter if some one searches for hhis vital thing,
    thus he/she wants to be available that in detail,
    thus that thing is maintained over here.
