So I decided to start tracking my caloric intake once again, in hopes that I can somehow do better at controlling what I eat, and with exercise, lose some weight. I went to the website I used and looked up put in what I ate this morning, and then started looking at the calories in some of the items I eat from time to time (mostly breakfast stuff). I was astounded to see that one Sausage and Egg biscuit from Hardees contains 610 calories (and I usually eat two)! That’s over 1200 calories just for my first meal of the day. If I put myself on a 2000 calorie diet, that means I only have 800 left for the rest of the day, and that makes it pretty hard to stay within that goal. I started thinking about how there is no way you would ever think that one little biscuit could be that bad for you just by looking at it. I learned we can’t make the decision about what food we eat based on how it looks, or what we see. Instead we have to base that decision on the things we can’t see, the things that are inside.
Oh, and if we apply that idea to food, maybe we should apply it to other things as well. Like they always say, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover!
