Have you been out to eat recently? Or even just to Starbucks?
If so have you noticed the menus now list the calories by every food?
I don't know about you, but I kind of like it.
He says that if you're going to go out you should just enjoy. Through caution to the wind and order whatever your heart desires.
I say that doesn't work unless you only go out to eat once or twice a year.
I find that we eat a least something that we have purchased away from home at least once a week.
I can be good all week, I can watch everything I eat...I actually lose a pound or two...and one meal out and it's back to start.
I like the experience of eating out. I like to sit in Starbucks with a friend and chat for awhile. I like my food prepared and delivered to me every so often.
But I don't like never making any progress with losing that nagging 10 pounds which I have been trying to loose...well for a long time.
Now I have a chance at both worlds. I can get the experience of going out and I can choose wisely so I won't have to face that setback on the scale the following morning.
And I'm often surprised.
Foods which I would have ordered, because I thought they were the lower calorie choices...are not! And foods that I would not have ordered...well, I should.
It's really been an eye opening experience. And I think a good one.
What do you think?
