Five Guys Makeover.


I have not gotten a chance to blog in a while. So sorry guys. We are gearing up for our big Cedar Key move and have been busy cleaning and packing and purging. I will have a few blogs up this week including a review of Kombucha tea (so good) and also about my trip to the doctor. I got a full panel of blood work and physical done for the first time in over 10 years. Yes I know. So irresponsible of me to wait so long! More on that this week.

For right now I just wanted to share something I posted on Facebook today. My nutrition has been pretty good this week. I have gotten a ton of water and exercise in. I haven’t binge ate, drank, or ate anything crazy. My husband and I decided to go to Five Guys. I knew I needed to change my usual order which is this.

tb-five

Bacon cheeseburger, medium fries. I won’t lie, it used to be large fries!!

Not including my choice of toppings (extra cheese, mayo etc.) the meal has–

1873 calories. 103 grams of fat! 171 grams of carbs, 61 grams of protein. That isn’t including a drink. Add in mayo and cheese holy moly.

I started looking at their menu before we went. I went with the following.

Cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce with grilled onions. Little fries. New meal nutritional facts–

712 calories 19 carbs 52 fat 42 protein.

 

I only had  1/4 the fries which was a victory in itself. Here is what I saved nutritionally wise.

1161 calories, 152 carbs, and 51 grams of fat.

The meal was wonderful. Just by making a few tweaks I got to feel like I was having something special, but at the same time I wasn’t overdoing it. Is it something I would do every week? No. But for once in a while? Absolutely!  It’s all about finding the balance. I am always TALKING about balance instead of just finding it. Today I found it, and I am determined to find it as OFTEN as possible.

The small changes really do add up. Live your life.

Live it well. Much love.
