It happens all the time, I'm away from any real food, need some
protein, feeling the blood sugar drop, nothing in the bottom of
Feeling a bit of dizziness coming on. Uh oh. Not good. This means my body's
started to feed on muscle fibre! Quelle horreurs! HIGH
time to feed and NOW.
Fast food drive-through is better than
starving. I guess. The muscle needs regular fuel so, YES, I partake

And trash the bread, the bun,
the pita, the pocket, the wrap. It's only a holder for what's
inside and lacks any significant nutritional value coming from
a 'squat 'n gobble' ... i.e., mostly white fast-milled flour.
Eating white bread products feels like I'm robbing my body,
cheating in the worst way, requiring more energy to eat and
digest than it provides. It's anti-nutrition.
I'm always picking off as much as I can, it's a mess.
Far from ideal, but this is something
in the gut, temporarily, drastic measures on the fly. And,
the 'value meals' are a ploy to get you to buy the fries and
soda. If you have to get the taste of fries once a
month, then ask for extra napkins, blot and squeeze out as
much grease as you can.
A SMART WAY TO GO:

there's some awful surgary, nasty chemically enhanced versions.
