Ignorance is not bliss

especially when it comes to eating fast food
and the past two days, I have
and I'm going to be completely honest with you and tell you what I ate and how many calories I ate just from that fast food and let me tell you, it's not good!

I'd always eat fast food and not even think about what I was choosing. If there was a choice, like if someone was buying it for me then why not get a large of everything?? I didn't care, I just wanted fast food because it's cheap and good.

Here's what I ate at Wendy's yesterday:
10 pc spicy nugget: 470 cals, 31 g fat
Large fry: 530 cals, 25 g fat
Large Chocolate frosty (why do they have to be SO good?!?!) 600 cals (!) 16 g fat
Total: 1,600 cals and 72 g fat
that's pretty much all my calories in one sitting plus about 3 day's worth of fat grams!!

and today at Burger King:

Spicy Chicken sandwich: 460 cals and 29g fat
Medium fry: 410 cals and 18 g fat
Oreo Sundae: 440 cals and 12 g fat
Total: 1,310 cals and 59 g fat!

Looking up this information was a total eye opener!
I think I just have to stay away from fast food altogether because it's not doing me any favors and plus I'm eating too much and on top of that for some reason eating fast food makes me want to eat even more junk food when I come home, it's crazy!

And this is not an excuse, but for both times I ate those meals I was really hungry, so lesson learned: when I'm hungry I must stay away from fast food and pack and eat healthy snacks, or make better choices at these places if anything.

Good bye fast food and hello to making better choices from now on!

    thanks for the encouragement!

    I definitely would love it if my taste buds craved vegetables and healthy food instead of junky foods!
    you're right Cindy, I do need to start planning ahead, that'll really help me!

    Good for you to be brave and look at the numbers. Planning ahead is key. Maybe get excited about "shopping online for the healthy meals and snacks you can get excited about. Then go to the store and buy it. Prepare things to get into snack size ziploc bags so all you have to do is grab it out. If you are already hungry and faced with having to prepare it, it may knock your resolve down.

    The more you eat healthy, the more you want it. Your tastes will truly change! emoticon
