Just One Meal…


I just saw a segment on Good Morning America about how one high-fat, high-calorie meal can make a difference in your blood. They tested people before and after eating a meal at an average chain restaurant (they didn’t say which, but the images on screen included Applebee’s and Cheesecake Factory). The “after” blood was visibly cloudier, meaning there was more fat in the bloodstream. That… is gross.

I’ll try to find a link later, but I wanted to post about it asap. I will definitely think twice before splurging on a meal like that. Not only do I feel absolutely awful (and wake up the next morning with a food hangover), but this piece showed me in no uncertain terms what certain food can do to our bodies.

The doctor on the segment said food like that is the “poisoning of America” and I believe it.
