Incredible Shrinking Mommy

We celebrated my son's birthday today (he's 7 tomorrow) and he wanted McDonald's for lunch. Fine. I was already going out so I went through the drive thru and ordered for my family, kinda ticked off I couldn't have a cheeseburger Wink Then I remembered hearing the parfaits, lowfat yogurt and fruit, skip the granola. I ordered one to try while everyone else was eating birthday cake. WOW! Yummy! I was so excited to find something I love so much and will order again. No queasiness, no dumping. Yum, yum, yum. The only thing I'd do differently is add  little protein powder and mix it in.

McDonalds shows the calories WITH granola packet at 160 and without the granola is 130. DANG! I am allowing myself this treat OFTEN. LOVED it.

Just had to share. Happy me!

When you are on maintenance, 24 g of carbs may not be a big deal.

A lot of it depends on how you feel about sugar... most of the sugar in yogurt is there naturally from the milk. It's not added sugar. So, for some people, it's fine. They won't dump on it and/or they only watch added sugar, not the sugar in dairy and fruit. But other people watch all sugar so it won't be fine.

How come you couldn't have a cheeseburger? My nut said it was ok (in moderation) that it fit the 300 cal 15 gr fat or less and has 12 gr of protein (worthwhile).

Just curious.

I would have gotten the cheese burger (make a special request so they have to make it fresh) and toss the bunnage

I get mine with ketchup onion and pickles (need the ketchup to detach the bread) or you could do a hamburger however you want
don't start pushing it now when you're a fresh freak!

Here's my take...

The longer you "AVOID" places like Mickey D's, and those other fast food places...the worst their food will taste when you do go back.

Trust me on this...(says she who Love Loved LOVED her Mickey Ds) To the point that I probably went there weekly.

Now...just the smell of the place turns me off.  I consider this a blessing.

With you being fairly new......I wouldn't even go there at this point.

and yes...6 years out and even a small childrens hamberger...does me in. Makes me sick. I don't even bother with it anymore.

Toni - that has definitely happened with me. I just can't tolerate their stuff at all. The only reason I go is for their SF Vanilla Iced Coffee, which is wonderful and only 120 calories.

I find that about a lot of foods I used to eat, Toni. By the time I went back to them, I'd lost my taste for them. It's one of the things that surprised me...
