30 Day Cowlean Challenge, Day Twenty-Two: Treat Yo-Self!

Hi guys,

Weigh-in: 204 lbs
Calories: 3000

Looking good; as I said yesterday, I’ve set my schedule up to make some good progress this week. So while I’ll be treating myself to some new low weigh-ins (get a life - C), my mind can’t help but wander to the other treats I give myself ( ;)  - C).

No, not those ones, but the food ones. One of the funny things that happens as you “eat clean” is that your perception of a treat changes. What you considered exceedingly mundane becomes humorously indulgent.

So I’ve prepared a list for you of the weird things that I gorge upon when the weekend rolls around. Some of them are more wacky, and some are just stupid. Laugh, cry, and most importantly respect, the gluttony:

An entire roast chicken

Condiments (obviously not as a meal, but with other food)

Heapings of carbs in general (rice, sweet potatoes, etc.)

Whole 100g bars of 70% dark chocolate

Beer (on occasion)

24 hot wings

A whole tub of Green and Black’s dark chocolate ice cream

Flat whites

Whole packs of grated cheese

Pork scratchings

Whole packs of sliced chorizo, salami, etc.

Whole joints of meat (if reduced)

90 grammers (BP coffee containing 90g of different fats)

Whole packs of bacon

Whole packs of apples/whole bunches of bananas

As you can see, some of the things on this list are just silly. For example, I would never have foreseen myself considering condiments as a treat, but they have! It’s very uncommon, I know.

Writing this list out has actually been quite a good exercise. I’ve come to realise that most of my “treats” either up the healthy carb portions, or are huge protein feasts. Of course, I do not recommend eating like this usually; you still need to consider them treats.

Until tomorrow,
