IIFYM: Craziest thing you've eaten?!

jennagoogles13jennagoogles13 Member Posts: 266 Member Posts: 266
For those of you who believe in the concept of IIFYM, what's the craziest thing you've fit into your budget?

For me, it would probably have to be a giant turkey leg from the fair consisting of 1136 calories, 54 grams of fat, and 152 grams of protein!!

    Fried eggplant as an appetizer, a giant plate of chicken alfredo as an entree, and a slice of cheesecake with strawberry syrup. 2130 calories. I worked out hard that day and didn't eat anything else.

    Depends if you count macros or not. If not, a 900 calories steak, but it was close to double my fat macro. And yes, I was still in my goal that day.

    Oh man... I can slam this one out of the park...


    A Large Big Mac Meal, with a coke, and a second big mac (it was .59 cents extra so I added it), a four piece mcnugget, and a hot fudge sundae.... yep. For lunch, in one sitting. That's honestly still not bad for me, but thankfully - I'm not in the "completely unhealthy" spectrum yet..... so I'm trying to change my habits now before it's too late.

    IIFYM = If It Fits Your MACROS

    By definition if you follow IIFYM you count your macros.

    Anyway, I once ate half a meat lovers pizza and still hit my calories and macros by the end of the day, gotta love flexible dieting...

    1 Container of Chocolate Brownie icecream topped with 60g of cashew nut butter. Eating it as I type this. Not so much crazy but it's yummy!

    I don't count crazy in calories, I count crazy in regards to what is truly weird in comparison to the standard American diet.

    The craziest thing I've ever eaten? A candy-coated cricket.

    It was actually not bad. Crunchy and kind of earthy.

    I can't decide if I'm disgusted or impressed.... Well done(?) O.O

    3 scotch eggs
    1 tikka chicken pastry slice
    1 sausage roll
    Pack of Dairylea slices
    Huge pasta pot (MEGA-calorific)
    4 chocolate bars.

    FORTUNATELY I haven't binged like that in a fair while.

    As for 'odd' food... Alligator. Kinda fishy-tastin...

    :laugh: I can only laugh about it because as I said, I'm not completely unhealthy yet. I'm trying to change it. That was a norm for me... like at least 2 times a month. Crazy. I love bigmacs haha.
