They are taking away our freedoms.

I have the right to be obese.

We don't need a nanny state.

So, put half burger meal back/hide it, save it but do not really eat it/buy the jr or kids meal w apple slices/eat for fuel not recreation--"where's the [fun] beef?" It's that eating isn't fun anymore...

One of the best ways to lose weight is to simply plan your meals. If you take a conscious effort to foresee what you will be eating and stick to the plan, you'll be successful. The problem I tend to run into is that my lack of planning leaves me feeling hungry and I make unwise choices in a moment of weakness. Manage moments of weakness by planning ahead.

There are also ways to manage fast food. Imagine if you order takeout. Before you eat a bite, take half that food immediately and put it in storage containers in your fridge for later. Immediately you've reduced the calories of your meal by half. this works particularly well with Pizza, because it's pretty darn good as a left-over. If you're the only one eating the pizza, take two slices, and store the rest in your freezer/fridge for later, perhaps in portion sized bags so you can have a couple lunches or dinners later.

It's a good way to make your budget go further too. Planning also helps you manage your nutrient intake, and make healthier food choices. But little by little...

@Pagan...If I have to pay for your health care, you no longer have the right to be obese. Look for it in the second term. Here comes the fat tax, not exercising tax, not taking vitamins tax, etc. Remember Sweethaven and Robin Williams as Popeye.

I often go to Subway...buy a footlong, but have them cut it into quarters, instead of in half. Then I eat 1 quarter. 2 hours later, I eat the next quarter and so forth. It's amazing how full I feel all day long by "grazing" like this. And I have lost 30 pounds in 60 days. I also go to Wendy's and get their cup of chili. Very inexpensive and just the right portion size.

To "Pagan" wow, you hatred of the LDS church and anything that involves people using self control.

Nowhere was government action desired or even mentioned.

As other have stated, if you want to control your portion size, eat the kids meal. You can have fruit PLUS you get a fun toy to give to your kids when you get home.
