like crap!! Physically like crap...

I was prepared mentally to handle how this would bring all my two week streak of veggies and lean meats to a halt. But wasn't prepared for the sloth-like, bloated feeling. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Hopefully I remember this! So next time I think I want to celebrate a small milestone I wont want to do it with a cheeseburger lol.

Anyone else have this feeling after cutting out the red meat for a few weeks?

All you are eating is meat and veggies and then you ate meat and refined carbs? Are you not constipated? Are you not eating a ton of nuts and seeds for minerals, fibre and healthy fats?

out of curiosity, was it a cheeseburger you made yourself or a crappy fast food burger?

Ooooh, I'm eating carbs! I love bread! I'm just lowering the amount because I find they make me sleepy. When I ate the cheeseburger I ate it open faced.

The majority of what I eat is veggies. I LOVE veggies and I partner that with a lean meat like fish or chicken. I actually go over my fats because fish is so high in fat and I cook with coconut oil and eat avocado.

It was a crappy burger from Chili's. I haven't eaten there for years and decided to give it a shot... Now I can understand why it's been years.

Nope. Whenever I indulge in a delicious cheese burger it's because I really want it and I am so satisfied after wards.

I had thought that it would be easy to dump fast food, which till this point I have still sworn off, but I stopped last night to pick my grandson up some McDonalds and when that bag of food hit the car I was drooling like a rabid dog!

Why is there days I can barely remember my name but I can recall just about every burger I have ever ate in my life! lol

i still eat fast food regulary, like once a week, and i dont feel that bad, i do feel bloated but the guilty feeling is more than the physical feeling xD.

Yep, pretty much this. Unfortunately whenever I have a cheeseburger it tastes delish and doesn't stop me from eating another one next time.

Makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE, imo. Fast food burgers are disgusto

Have you tried Ezekial bread? It's a nice, super healthy substitute to the usual.

OMG this is too funny but true. I am recovering from the flu and for the past week I have been on liquids and eating soups. The other night I felt so hungry that I had my hubby pick me up a small order of french fries from a local restaurant. Now, I haven't had fries in so long and could barely finish a regular order on my own, but that night I inhaled those things like they were going out of style. (LOL)

I didn't feel guilty when I ordered it and ate it. I felt bloated and yucky after I ate it.

I think the worst feeling now is after putting the calories into my tracker. YIKES! Hahaha... Oh well. Live and learn. Just adds another reason why I need to think twice (and probably three and four times) before I order another cheeseburger.

I quit eating at Chilli's many years ago. Mainly because just about all the food there is crappy.

hahaha, now that's funny! Does inhaling your food provide better results than ingesting?
I so know how you felt.
I'm afraid to start eating fast food again as I'm sure I would be arrested for causing a disturbance at the drive through!
I can hear the call to the police now, "Yes, Id like to report a crazy guy at the drive through, he's been here 15 times and each time he orders a cheeseburger, throws the wrapper in the trash as he leaves, then drives through again!"

I've noticed something similar with sweets and fried food. Stomach just doesn't like them and goes on to being upset right afterwards. I guess if it's been a while since you've had such things and you've trained your body to eat a certain way for so long, your body is not probably not going to 'accept' that fatty craving the way it used to.

I like it though because my body is telling me to reject that junk which isn't good for it anyway (no offense).
January 13, 2013 10:13 AM
good for you girl! sometimes it takes an experience like this to realize how bad this stuff is for us!

this is a win for you. :)

Good u feel like that because you will now see why eating good food is far superior. Junk food is not even made of pure ingredients.

I'll never be giving up cheeseburgers anytime soon, but I'll never be eating a fast food burger either, their disgusting to say the least.

Next time you (or anyone else) gets the urge for a cheeseburger--just do it the healthy way. Buy LEAN beef (or turkey if you like it) and divide that one pound package into 4 1/4 lb burgers. Use reduced fat cheese (Naturally slender American is pretty good) and slap that burger on a whole wheat roll or bread. Add onions sauteed in a little healthy olive oil, lettuce, and tomato, and you have a pretty healthy sandwich. Depending upon your calorie target, maybe its not something you want to eat every day, but you could sure have one once a week.

a grass fed burger is totally healthy for you in moderation.

A high quality, lean beef mid-rare burger makes me feel good.
