How can I eat healthy if I am gone all day and have to resort to fast food?

I, personally, try not to eat fast food at all.  I know you're probably thinking, "WHAT!  That is impossible for me.  I work all day, driving from one place to the next, the only time I have to eat lunch is a drive-in window!"  Of course desperate times call for desperate measures, and sometimes you're starving and have to settle for fast food of some sort.  However, almost always, I try to pack my lunch if I know I am going to be away from the house.  It can be a hassle because there is not always a fridge to keep my food cold.  Then I have to pack a cooler and I will admit, that IS annoying.  But, I would rather eat a healthy meal that I have prepared than consume a high calorie, sodium filled meal that is going to affect my weight loss/maintenance.  This problem also carries over to friends or family that want to have me over for a meal.  Luckily, I have great family and friends that quickly caught on that I would rather bring my own dish than eat something fattening.  Soon enough they were asking me what I would be comfortable eating!  I realize this may sound high-maintenance but I deserve to go somewhere and be able to have a meal that is not swimming in butter or a cream sauce.  If more of the world ate as healthy we wouldn't have such a problem with obesity in the U.S. - don't you think?

Does alcohol really play a factor in weight loss?  Can't I just have a few per week?  Until tomorrow...
