Satan Get Thee Behind Me!

I have looked Satan in the eye and his name is...

Sweet and Sour Chicken...

Lady Piech and I went out to Fulin last night because she had a hankering for Chinese...


My goal here is to change my lifestyle, not to deprive myself of anything so what the hey. Cindy doesn't eat that much so we usually share meals when we go out to eat so how bad can her favorite order of Sweet ans Sour Chicken really be?

I'll tell you how bad... It's a heart attack on a plate. Just half the order was over 600 calories and over 60 carbs, 33 grams of fat...


Now I had plenty of room in my plan for it, but pretty much blew any hope of me having any kind of snack later in the night.... and we all know how Chinese food is... half an hour later your ready to chew your arm off again.


I made it through the night without grazing but if the two of us are going to share dinners, we've got to make better choices.

    Love what you're doing, and love your attitude. If it is agreed to share dinners, there 'should' be a concensous on eating healthier meals.

    What I like to do is not share a meal, but ask for 2 or 3 bites from their meal (course that wouldn't do if I am out with a bunch of casual friends). That way I get to savor whatever, and still not have much of it. With time I am learning that a lot of what I used to think was just fantastic, no longer tastes that good to me anymore.
