    One hardly even knows where to begin with that kind of remark

    The turkey leg has 1095 calories, and 14 grams of fat. It would be fine if you only eat 1/2 a turkey leg, and nothing else for the entire day!

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    they have a nice selection of salad at the pacific wharf cafe. i had a really good one the last time i went. of course, its in a bread bowl, so perhaps don't eat that.

    unless, of course, you've saved up some points.

    let us know what you decided to do. i have a gf on jenny craig right now and this has been a concern of hers as well.

    You know, when I was your age I thought the same thing. Give it a couple of years and we will see if you feel the same way. I am not saying you are going to be "obese" but you will notice the weight you put on.

    You should really think before you post. Even though your comment was not directed at a particular poster, the message was still quite rude.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    Wow...

    Looks like a little bit of controversy came up since I last logged in. My original question was because I am starting my diet and want some suggestons of healthier foods at the park. I am 38 years old and recently had a physical and my doctor put me on blood pressure medication. Before it would have been ok with a little diet and excersice but now considering my age the doctor felt some medication would be appropriate in addition to all of this.

    I just want to say to barfownz -- and I am speaking from experience -- that you should always watch what you eat and excersice more often. Because even if you eat all the Disneyland food in the world and are still thin, that doesn't necessarily mean you are in good health, nor does it mean you will always have good health. Trust me, this stuff creeps up on you. So my suggestion is even if you are "skinny" I highly reccommend that you still eat right and excersice. You will be doing yourself a huge favor years down the road...

    Such a helpful and tactful post! And they say kids today are full of themselves!

    ETA - What the poster said about watching what you eat is so very true. My boys both were similar to Barf at his age. And then they learned life changes things. Suddenly, they were no longer able to eat the way they did in HS. They learned about the "Freshman 15", and the older one has learned turning 20 changes things again. I am hesitent to tell him at 30 it will be even worse.

    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    Back to the original question...
    I would actually recommend the all you can eat buffets- if you have the willpower to avoid most of the food.

    You can find the stuff that is good for you and eat a large portion of that.

    Just make sure you are able to skip all that other stuff!

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    Hubster and I have brought our own food into the park before and haven't had a problem, so that's always an option.
    Sometimes, it's best not to deprive yourself of something you really want. Just splurge once in the day and the rest of the time eat 'sensible' foods.

    Not to be confused with sensible shoes...though those are a must at Disneyland, too.

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    I didn't read all the replies, but as a temporarily-suspended WW'er, here are my tips:

    1. Use Disneyland as your splurge day. The points system gives you excess points per week, save them for DL. Also, remember, any activity you do gets you bonus points. A day at the park should -certainly- get you enough extra points from all the walking to cover the extra less-than-healthy food.

    2. Beyond that, I can't recommend Redd Rocket's Pizza Port enough. They will sell you their grilled chicken salad without the dressing, or dressing on the side. A grilled chicken salad with just a little cheese is going to be low enough in points that as long as you don't dump on a ton of caesar, ranch, or other high-fat dressing, you're going to be able to guesstimate it pretty low. There are other options, of course, but RRPP seems to be the quickest and easiest way to get a fresh salad with plain, grilled chicken and not a ton of fatty extras (cheese, bacon, etc.).

    3. You absolutely -can- bring snack bars into the park. If questioned, make it clear you are on a special diet, but I've never been questioned once and we -always- carry at least one type of bar. (My wife likes the Special K bars for quick boosts in her blood sugar.) I also used to carry the original PowerBars around (I love peanut butter, available at Wal-Mart for less than a buck a bar). They're good short-term meal replacements for -very- few points considering the amount of protein you get.

    Number one remains my top tip, however. Trying to eat light at Disneyland is just a pain in the neck, save some of those weekly points and walk a little faster to gain some activity points to balance out that jambalaya or pizza slice.
