Yakisoba has given me unexpected pain...

Thursday, January 10, 2013

First, let me say that I almost never read labels, mainly because I've never tried counting my calories or actually caring what I eat. I always have felt that if my body was craving it, it is probably something I need. As a dancer, actor, and singer this has surprisingly worked out. My body tends to give me all the signals I need to stay at a regular weight. However, my best friend Julianne (JULESJET) has recently hooked me to these trackers on Sparkpeople. Like in Hunger Games the tracker jackers have bit me and and now I'm swelling with the need to know how much of everything is in everything for every minute of my day!! It's like pinterest, I'm ADDICTED. The rude awakening today was the is a list:

1. That the little rectangle of food is actually 2 SERVINGS!! What?!?!?! ( I thought it was one! I'm such a fatty all this time!)
2. That lo and behold this food I have idolized as a quick noodle meal slightly better than the McDonald's dollar menu, is 520 CALORIES!! In one sitting I ate half of my caloric intake!!!
3. I feel cheated and betrayed by my one faithful substitute, NOODLES!!!

So, there you have it. Spark people has opened my eyes, the only good part to this is that I did an hour of Zumba with JulesJet and killed 200 of those calories. Oh the pain!!

    Always good to read those labels, prior to really doing some work on portion control and understanding serving sizes I really had no conceptualization about how much excess fuel I was taking in. emoticon

    It's incredible of our preception of a serving and what an actual serving size really is
