Drive -Thru Dieting

The words “weight loss” and “fast food” aren’t often used in the same sentence, but that may be changing soon. Taco Bell is promoting its new “Drive-Thru Diet” after a 27-year-old Pensacola, Fla., woman claimed to lose weight on a diet of fast-food tacos. And chains from Dunkin’ Donuts to Kentucky Fried Chicken are now touting lower-calorie fare.

But just how healthful can food served through a window really be? Is it possible to lose weight on a diet of mostly fast food? To hear the answers, read the latest Skin Deep column, “Forget Jenny Craig: Hit the Drive-Thru,” and then please join the discussion below.

What do you think of the lower-calorie foods offered by fast-food companies?
