    My son and I ended up in town longer than I planned so I was STARVING!  We went to ChikFilA and I had the following.. About one hour later I had HORRIBLE fatigue, slow thinking, left hand and left food wierdness.

    *sausage,cheese, and egg from the biscuit (didn’t eat the biscuit)

    *4 or 5 little hash browns

    *decaff coffee w/splenda (no stevia) and those 2 of those little creamers.

     

    I feel soooo horrible.  I can’t wait until this passes.  The most frustrating part is I have been feeling super super good!  Eating out is a PAIN!

    I hear ya!  Today I had to travel out of town for work meetings and I knew they were having a taco bar at lunch.  I had taco meat, lettuce, cheese, salsa and onions.  I know the seasoning was prepackaged and had several things including gluten, that I am not supposed to eat.  I didn’t pack my own lunch because I planned on taking my Max Digest with me (since this meal would be an exception to my diet) and then I forgot it!  I feel fine, but I did also have two non-dairy creamers in my coffee today since they did not have any healthy sweeteners in their office for coffee. (I normally use agave).  I can’t drink it black, but I get terrible acne from those creamers.

     

    They are supposed to be non-dairy–what’s in those things, anyway?

    One phrase – “food suitcase”

    well maybe two phrases – “food cooler”

    All the best,

    P.S.

    Cardinal rule of nutrition – you can’t achieve or maintain good health with unhealthy food!

    Hi Steph,

     

    Also, chic-fil-a contains, HFCS, MSG, and anti-foaming chemicals.

    Don’t eat:

    corporate food [fast food, prepared foods etc]

    candy

    um…. it’s easier to go by this creed- make it at home by single wholesome ingredients. Or buy single wholesome ingredients at the market in the organic section. Nothing pre-packaged. Go to any ‘organic police’ type site and read, read, read. Some “organic” companies are not organic at all. An educated consumer is a healthy consumer. Buyer beware.

    Hi Steph,  here’s a few links to that info. Just copy and paste into your browser.

    http://www.naturalnews.com/036653_Chick-fil-A_anti-boycott_ingredients.html

    http://www.naturalnews.com/032820_Chicken_McNuggets_ingredients.html

    One of the companies that manufacture these is:

    http://www.innovadex.com/Food/Products/12887/13072/Antifoaming-Agents

     

    One of the ‘problems’ with modern processed food is they have to find a balance between the taste in the end product, shelf-life, and ease of manufacturing while making the ‘food’. All sorts of troublesome ingredients are put into modern packaged/processed foods in order to manufacture them.

     

    Do we really need to eat a flowing agent [magnesium stearate] in order to consume a high quality supplement? No. We don’t. And many of these ease-of-manufacturing-additives are quite dangerous over the length of the life of the person eating them.

    For the manufacturer of the product, ultimately, the bottom line [profit margin] is the dictator of the method and ingredients. Doesn’t sound like they ‘have our backs’, does it?

     

    Best.Smile

    Hi thychamp,

    Here’s an article about imitation creamer [non-dairy] cut and paste into your browser. The end of the article give some good suggestions as to healthy non-dairy creamers.
