Yep, I am curious how often do you eat out or take out from restaurants on an average week. To clarify the few definitions in hoping to keep the answers consistent:
We will be counting the numbers of meals, not numbers of days. If I were to eat out breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week, that will be counted as 21 times, not 7 times.
Getting a Big Mac for lunch counts as a take out, getting a donut and coffee for breakfast from Dunkin Donut counts as a take out, buying foods from the company caffertia counts as a eat out, but buying frozen meals from Lean Cuisine does not, pouring milk into a bowl of cereal does not.
I know, I know, it gets a bit confusing because many options appear to be in the gray area, but we need to draw the line somewhere, right? So please answer as best as you can in term of how often you eat restaurant foods. Thanks.
A) 0-2 meals a week
B) 3-5 meals
C) 6-11 meals
D) >11 meals
My answer is (B). On an average week, I eat out about 1 times (sometime 2 times), and do 1 take out from restaurants. However, I often split my single takeout into 2-3 meals, so my answer is closer to 3-4. Thanks.
P.S.: I mean your current lifestyle (think of your last 6 months to last year), not 5 or 20 years ago -- just to be clear.
