Food Regrets...

    If it fits my macros, I don't regret anything...and even when I food binge on something, I still don't regret it. One day of going nuts isn't the end of the world. What's bad is when you have consecutive days, weeks and months of always overeating.

    Sure, stuff like that happens to me frequently but I don't really give it much thought. Just move on.

    One thing I am working on is refusing food I don't want, though. It is hard for me to turn down something when it's offered by my mom because she will go to a lot of trouble to have a nice meal for me when I visit and it's usually just the two of us eating together...this week I ate a piece of cheesy garlic bread at her house and I didn't want it at all!

    A few days ago I bought a package of kale chips intending to eat the whole thing. I did. I regret doing that. I don't actually recall regretting anything else other than long ago in the early 1980's at an office potluck I sampled the stuffed grape leaves another co-worker offered.

    pizza earlier this week.. it's my favourite pizza place because they tend to make them really thin and don't put a bunch of meat & cheese on them, and they use really tasty mushrooms... except yesterday I got way more cheese than they usually use... was a bit disappointing tbh, my one non-home made pizza in ages and it made me wish i'd just made my own at home (I love pizza but hate large amounts of cheese)

    gota say this is the first time as far as pizza is concerned iv seen to much toppings being called dissapointing lol.

    I think it's just that many of the pizza places that my family likes use *way* too much of everything, especially cheese, and it makes my mouth feel like it's coated in grease... it's also not very nice when it gets cold and there's this finger thick layer of hard cheese goo :P

    I don't really get food regrets about what I eat. I often have more regrets about splurging calories on a dish that wasn't as good as I hoped it would be when eating out.

    I'm looking at you, underseasoned fried chicken.

    I had a BBQ brisket sandwich and fries a month or so back and something disagreed with me for days after. Eesh. Other than that I don't remember. Sometimes I get a bit snack happy after lunch but if I can ride that out by keeping busy I'm usually ok.

    Question: What food(s) have you regretted eating afterwards if any?

    A hamburger contaminated with E-Coli.

    Spent a week in the hospital.

    I regret the fourth glass of wine I had at a wedding last weekend. I don't typically drink more than one every couple of weeks. I definitely paid for that!

    Shop bought cakes
    The taste is never worth the calories

    Assorted popcorn, you know the three flavors in the tins? I always think it’s going to be amazing and then it’s just stale. I should really give up on it

    I always regret fries. I still love (and often eat) Steak N' Shake burgers, but I order w/o fries and half the time they give me the fries. Theirs are awful, in my opinion, but any fries just make me think "why did I eat that?" I'm not even a fan at all.

    The piece of chocolate cake I ate today.

    We have a client who likes to bring most of us in the office cake when he visits. And I ended up eating my whole piece even while telling myself "share with the coworker who didn't get her own piece". But I was stressing so down the hatch it went.

    THEN another client brought us In n Out burgers. I ended up eating a burger. I don't regret the burger because it's been forever since I had one and it was as delicious as I remember but I do regret not looking the calories up first.

    So basically I added about 1500 quick calories to today's diary and won't be able to do my normal eating a whole bunch of stuff before bed thing tonight.

    I love McDonalds. Never regret eating there.

    I always regret eating chinese takeout after I'm done. I crave it. It's delicious while I'm eating it. But when I'm finished I feel gross and tell myself I'll never eat it again.....then eat the leftovers the next day and the cycle continues. I think maybe because I overeat it? IDK...

    This is my exact same food regret. I eat Chinese food very rarely, maybe 2 or 3 times a year. Every thing is amazing when I first start. I pig out and vow to wait 4 or 5 months before doing it again. Then the leftovers call to me the next day at lunch time haha!! Big picture, I don't eat it enough to be an issue, even with eating it the next day, but I always feel so disgusted with myself!

    The hamburger and fries I had today. We were out of town and planned to go to a place that makes really terrific burgers, and I logged my day around their bacon cheeseburger and onion rings. I'd been looking forward to this for three days! We were delayed in our errands, and by the time we got to the restaurant I was famished. They must have a new chef because the burger was not nearly as flavorful as usual and pretty dry, plus they were out of onion rings and the french fries that came with the plate were meh at best. I was so hungry I ate the whole burger and half of the fries anyway, but was disappointed by the whole endeavor.

    Triple cheeseburger with a poutine and coke. I felt like the king of Moldova while eating it but then the deed is done and I wonder what the heck I just did.
