Extreme restaurants

Friday, January 18, 2013

I don't think this is the reason people are fat. I average eating out more than twice a week. Most people go to expensive restaurants as a treat so I would guess once a month or at the most once a week. It's not the calories at a fancy meal that makes one fat. Calories add up, true.

I've been upset and eating more at night than usual. I won't call it binging since it's just a large bowl of cereal most nights. Still, it put me about two to three hundred calories over my range since I've been eating well the rest of the day. I'm happy about eating well since I was stressed and eating too little. Now, I'm just eating a little too well. However, the calories are more fish, cereal, occasional sweet. They aren't because I ate at a restaurant and had a personal size pizza one day. Eating at a restaurant occasionally isn't the reason we gain weight. Enough with my rant.

Weight gain is a lifestyle problem, not a problem with an occasional splurge.

By the way, seeing the pictures of food made me smile. I thought to myself as I saw the calorie counts that isn't that much. I could burn that much in a day.

    emoticon I made two meals of the personal pan pizza. I doubt I could eat any of those meals. I still have to admit they look pretty. I suppose they would look overwhelming and less pretty in front of me, not posed for the camera. If I order dessert, I share it. It's very rare for me to eat a dessert at a restaurant. The half to two-thirds of a main course usually fills me up.

    I agree that eating one of those meals won't do permanent harm, but 89g of saturated fat? Just thinking about that makes it less appetizing to me.

    A dessert that weighs 1 pound? That does sound extreme. I love chocolate, but I'm trying to imagine having enough room for it AFTER dinner. Wow!
