OMG!!!! KFC is really fattening!

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I went over my caloric allowance today all because I ate KFC!!!! I had one drumstick and one thigh; both hot and spicy, 2 buns, one serving each of coleslaw and mashed potato. I tracked it and was amazed at how many calories I have consumed!!!!

I don't even dare track the little sips of mountain dew!!!! Oh well, that just goes to show that I can't eat like this everyday! Why was I so hungry? I did 1 and a half hours of Pilates. I sweated quite a bit; it feels so good after a bath.

Oh Gosh! I hope I didn't undo the good of that Pilates session.............sigh! Well, back on the healthy lifestyle wagon!

    KFC calls out to me occasionally... I stay away from the potatoes & biscuits. I eat a breast and coleslaw... once I'm done licking my fingers I'm satisfied. It's all about portion control emoticon

    I see someone recommended the grilled chicken option. Check out the calories on that before you eat it. I looked once and was amazed at the number of calories in "grilled" chicken. Fast food is almost always a bad choice. Fat and sodium that is off the charts and you end up being hungry again in a few hours. Not worth it!!

    I track calories before going to restaurants now - mostly because of the sodium count. We were going to a Chili's - and I know my husband loves BBQ ribs (I do, too) so we were going to split an order. Ooops - 6300+ mg of SODIUM. We went elsewhere!

    One spree won't hurt you overall, but it could show up a little bit tomorrow. It will go away again in a day. Don't regret it - just don't do it OFTEN! And when you do, go right ahead and enjoy it!

    And now we all know why KFC does not publish, or encourage viewing of their Nutritional Facts! Good for you for figuring it all out !

    A little KFC splurge will not hurt your overall efforts, as long as it's just that - a splurge on an occasional basis! I confess, I like my KFC too. Once in awhile, good, yummy bad-for-you food is good for the soul!

    Avoid buns/biscuits at ANY restaurant/fast food establishment. They're just empty calories. Do the KFC's over there offer a grilled chicken option? It defeats the purpose of the F in KFC, but the grilled chicken they have here is pretty tasty.
