The Saltiest Drive Through Meal

The Saltiest Drive Through Meal

Tonight at church, we heard from a group who just returned from a mission trip to Comayagua, Honduras.  A couple of years ago, I had an opportunity to travel to Honduras for a week or so.  It was a great week.  But at the end of the week, I ate the saltiest hamburger that I’ve ever had in my life.  It was a McDonald’s Big Mac in the Tegucigalpa Airport.  But after a week of Honduran food, I was glad for a salty taste of America.

This morning, I read an interesting article from Eat This, Not That about the 25 saltiest meals in America.  According to that article, though, McDonald’s does not have the saltiest drive through meal in America.  According to Eat This, Not That, the saltiest drive through meal in America is the Burger King Double Cheese Burger with small fries.  It has the sodium equivalent of 6 Big Grab Bags of Lay’s Potato Chips.  It has 1480 grams of sodium.  If you’re interested, you can find the article at http://eatthis.menshealth.com/slideshow/25-new-saltiest-foods-america#sharetagsfocus?cm_mmc=ETNTNL-_-738478-_-11302011-_-hed.

Here’s what I had to eat today:

1 Biscuit with Grape Jelly

1 Large Taco Salad (no dressing)

1 Chick Fil-A Sandwich

1 Large Grilled Chicken Salad with Mixed Greens, Cucumbers, Brocolli, and Almonds

90 oz of water

Supplements I’ve taken today:           

1 Fish Oil Pill

1 Multi Vitamin

Exercise:

45 Minutes of Walking

34 pushups

    Extremely proud how disciplined you have become on losing weight but had a question for you. What will you change once you hit your goal weight? If the answer is nothing, how long can you sustain this modified diet? These were the questions I asked myself when I was focused on losing weight as opposed to becoming healthy. These 44 years have taught me a lot about my failures. Hope you do better than me. Blessings!

      Good comments, Chris. Interesting thing is, my real focus is on changing my lifestyle. The weight loss has happened much more rapidly than I expected. I plan to continue eating healthy and exercising regularly even after I reach my ideal weight. I may lighten up on it though (no pun intended). It certainly will be good to have a plan, though.
