BLC: Favorite meal - is it worth it?

Sunday, September 23, 2012

My all-time favorite food is Cheesecake Factory cheesecake. Thank goodness it's expensive, so I have it very rarely - maybe once or twice a year, for my birthday or a date. The calorie count is painful: the Godiva chocolate cheesecake is 1109 calories, 42g fat, 210mg sodium, 105g carbs. Yikes! Even if I split it with someone, that's 555 calories: 50 minutes on the elliptical, or 2 hours of walking! Not worth it! Or, at least, not worth it more than once a year!

    Everything in moderation. Making things forbidden only makes me crave them more. When I allow myself to enjoy them once to several times a year (depending) helps me to maintain a healthy lifestyle overall.

Is it worth it? Only you can say that for sure.

    Okay, OUCH! Definitely a rare treat. I hope when you do have it, you savor every single bite without people yammering at you so that you have to gulp it down in order to reply. I hate when people interrupt me when I'm trying to savor. LOL

    With a calorie count like that I'd sure have to think it over! But once in awhile . . . maybe!

    Taste might be incredible, but I'd have to think it over for sure!

    Yes: an occasional indulgence is just fine, but with numbers like that, any more and it could be deadly!

    Just eat three bites of it...if you can, close your eyes with each bite and think about its texture and taste. Savor every bite. Enjoy

    I love Cheesecake Factory. Thankfully there aren't any near here. Once in a while as a treat is a good way to have it.
