Now, I've become comfortable with my weight, put the scale in the closet, and stopped counting calories obsessively. But I still want to eat healthy and all that, so I do check the nutrition information on everything I eat; especially since I know I'm a sugar addict and diabetes runs in my family.
However, we went grocery shopping yesterday and I was starving! Everything looked so delicious! Especially these...
In a sugar-withdrawal induced stupor, I completely forgot to check the side of the box and devoured one as soon as we exited Trader Joe's. Little did I know what a huge mistake I had made.
Later, my boyfriend told me the horrible truth: in just one of those cute little 5 oz ice cream sandwiches was 440 calories! 21 grams of fat! And 42 grams of sugar! (Well, at least I could make up for it by eating all the fruits and veggies we just bought, right? Do some extra yoga?)
In comparison, a McDonald's double cheeseburger at 6 oz has 440 calories and 22 grams of fat.
A 12 oz Coca-Cola has 140 calories and 39 grams of sugar.
A 15 oz milkshake from In-N-Out has 690 calories, 35 grams of fat, and 65 grams of sugar. The worst by far.
And those are things that I have banished from my diet for obvious reasons. (Okay, okay--I eat them sometimes...)
Too bad. Those ice cream cookies are BOMB. I suggest you try one regardless! It made my day.
