For example, cooking your own dinner may be less convenient than picking something up on the way home. But if you cook for yourself, you can control how many calories you're eating. With a little bit of practice at the grocery store, you can pay a lot less for less fattening dinners than it costs to pick up fast (and fattening) food -- and certainly more than it costs to go out for a meal.

Now, this paragraph tells me that either they are crappy cooks or they don't know what they are talking about. Hubby and I pride ourselves on being good cooks. Unfortunately, that little bit of pride has also caused our waistlines to expand because we are good cooks. Most people, including myself, have a habit of going back for thirds with my husband's cooking. Our single neighbor stopped eating over here because he was gaining too much weight.
