Plus like a whole mess of ranch dressing. I'd only have to budget like, around 1200 calories or so, including the ranch, right? No problem....

    960 for the nuggets and 240 for 4oz of ranch dressing. Yep, that's the correct calorie count.

    If you're seriously looking at a binge, I'd make sure that these 1200 calories are going to be your best option. I could think of a lot of things better than McNuggets. :-)

    I find that once I have hit my calories for the day whatever food I ate to get there it's not very hard to stop there and pick up in the morning. What issues I do have are due to compulsion rather than hunger.

    Nothing wrong with it, just don't make it a daily alternative to a good diet.

    Isn't that just a meal? Not a binge?

    I just binged on proscuitto. I know that is a weird binge, but I could not wrap the rest up.

    Go ahead and have some gross food every now and then. I ate two quesaritos and an ice cream cone the other day and made it fit. We didn't even have to call a plumber afterward. See? It all works out.

    I have only eaten fast food twice this year. It does not appeal to me and I only ate it out of desperation. The cravings for s**t food is gone as long as I eat every 3hrs. If I wait too long though, I tend not to care about my diet.

    Girlfriend and I made a big pot of whole wheat pasta with mushrooms, EVO, and romano cheese instead. I had a nice deficit built up and had a very good-size bowl of the stuff. YUM

    If this were me I would give myself permission to eat that...just not today.

    If I still felt like it tomorrow then I would have it but by that time the strong desire has usually faded to nothing.

    In any event, depending on your TDEE, you could incorporate that meal into a day and still end up with a deficit depending on how you eat for the rest of the day or break even. Obviously if it starts becoming a habit there may be a problem but every so often is not that worrying.

    if it fits in your calories for the day and you really want it then GO FOR IT! You only live once.

    as a recovering binge eater, i agree. not a binge if its planned and counted, just a luxurious meal.
