Wow your post reminded me of what my wife keeps mentioning all the time of what she used to, and still does sometimes, pig out on in front of the TV.
1/2 a pizza from the local place, hot dog, 2x chicken from KFC with biscuit, arbies curly fries and a diet coke (she prefers the taste). Yup that is a meal. She is one of those annoying people that shovels anything in and doesn't gain weight.
I try and avoid fast food and prepared food (sodium and fats) although there was a time when I didn't. Actually I have found bicycle commuting is great because I don't stop at a drive through for breakfast, lunch or dinner although einstien begals is sooo close I did stop there in the AM one day. The new cafeteria crew at work is great too because they _suck_ so I don't eat as much.
Now if I'm on a really long ride and it is the choice between some diner or Mc'ds I'll actually take mc'ds because I know it won't get me sick. I'll even take cici's pizza buffet *knock on wood*
Usually it's oatmeal and/or eggs (with cinnamon) for breakfast rarely a begel with cream cheese. Then scattered throughout the day it will go something like soy milk, salad, whole grain pasta, organic low sodium pasta sauce, PB&J on Whole Grain, brussel sprouts or brocolli, green beans, blueberries, banana, stawberries and lots of water.
