This is going to be a major issue for me tomorrow, as one of my clients is a fast food joint (fried chicken one, to be specific) and I have to eat there for lunch. We're cooking fried chicken and biscuits all morning and then we have to eat them.
Now "have to" is debatable, but I have to at least eat something. I think I'm going to try to eat a chicken breast without the skin (It will probably be pointed out that I'm "so picky I have to remove the skin") and hopefully there will be salty canned green beans on the side. I won't eat a biscuit since they have shortening in them (=transfat). I'll have an apple and something healthy from the whole grain group in my car.
It makes me soooooo annoyed that I have to eat this food, and I hate having to miss a good meal with gross food, but I don't see that I have a choice, as this is a client and I have to be there.
On the topic, here's a Fit From Within chapter that I posted in Elle's CK blog:
Fit From Within's Chapter 10: "If It Doesn't Look Good, Don't Eat It."
Overeaters will eat a dish that's too hot or too cold, overcooked or undercooked, or something they just don't like. They give foods so many chances, taking bite after bite of this scalding/freezing/burned/raw/bad-tasting dish, as if eating enough of it could transform it into something good after all.....To become Fit From Within, you have to develop discernment. This means becoming selective about what you put in your mouth - "picky" even.....Not every meal will be a gustatory adventure, nor does it have to be, but everything you put in your mouth does need to meet some basic standards. At the very least, it should be fresh, properly prepared, and taste like something. You're worth it!!!"
