I was curious how much junk I could eat in a day and call it good ie. keep within my 1470 allotted daily intake. I wasn't terribly surprised but seeing it set out was pretty amazing to me.
My old weakness was Cheez Its and I could easily eat a box a day (but only ever ate a half, really) on top of my other meals, thinking "they're baked! they're healthier!" Wanna see how many cheez its would make up MORE than my 1470 recommended caloric intake?
Evil things! One box of Cheez It's is more than Stuart's recommended intake too and I could seriously eat a whole box and then eat my hand I'd fed myself with right afterwards. I don't eat those foods anymore because I have to be supervised whilst nomming. Here's the healthy 1470 calorie option to counter it with 3 peanut butter cups for dessert of course :)
I have been more aware of what I'm eating and don't care to waste calories like I used to. I want to feel full and not go to bed hungry, I also want my digestive system to work properly and have the ability to snack and feel satisfied if I want to. It's obvious that generally the less processed the food, the more you can eat and I think that's pretty amazing.
