Eating healthy and then eating unhealthy.(3 posts)

Eating healthy and then eating unhealthy.TxTarpon

I am betting I am not the only one with this problem. My wife is a vegetarian, but eats fish. I am pretty much an omnivore with the exception that I don't eat lots of stuff that is fried or made with grease. This means all fast food is out except of a scant few places. This past weekend my wife and I were stuck in a place were our only choices to eat were GAG! McBarf, err...McDonalds. Hours latter when we got home we felt like crap. Call it a "bad dinning expirence". We thought about it. Whenever we are in a place were we eat high in grease, fat, or msg food, we suffer latter.

Does this happen to anyone else?
When you eat fruit, salads, and generally healthy foods 90% of the time, does the crappy food really shock your body that much?

I wouldn't claim to be an eating purist but I try to avoid the junk food. There've been a couple of occasions when I was left with only McBurgers and suffered in my innards for it. They went through me so fast it was like I rented them instead of bought them.

And it's not just greasy stuff. I rarely eat chocolate but a couple of days ago I grabbed a handful of chocolates from a candy jar on a co-worker's desk. About twenty minutes after I scarfed them I got so drowsy I could barely keep my eyes open. A classic sugar crash. I need one of those every few months to remind myself why I stay away from that stuff.

I eat very little meat or fried foods. When I do - yuk! I really feel it. However, it is a great reminder that shitty food makes you feel shitty!
