I’ve been using an app called Arise to track my calories for the last few weeks, and I discovered the little data tab last night, which led me to this terrifying visualisation.
My nutrient sources for the last month.
The Carman’s item at number two is a high-protein porridge I get in my tummy every morning just before walking the dogs, usually with a half-scoop of the protein powder you can see a bit further down.
The ‘Muscle Chef Chunky’ is their Chunky Chocolate Popcorn bite, which is the only protein snack I know of that doesn’t taste of stale arse.
A little embarrassing to find those British pork bangers in there, but in my defence, they’re not actually British. That’s the closest thing in the database to my local butcher’s hand-rolled snags.
Even more embarrassing is the total lack of leaves and twigs. I’ve been eating a shit ton of leaf and twig, man. I usually get two boxes of salad from Botanica each week because my idea of homemade salad never exceeded the basic pub offering of lettuce and tomato. But I guess there’s not as many calories in a box of high-class cud and spendy chaff as in a sausage.
Sourdough being your major calorie source is awesome. You need pizza to make the list, it has everything you need.
Why oh why would you subject yourself to skim milk? There is hardly any fat in whole milk...is it for some other reason?
I thought that the point of salad was to have no or negative calories. You'd expect it not to show up on that list, wouldn't you? (0.5 😃)
I often ponder as I’m eating my spinach salad with no dressing and a little smoked turkey and sometimes cheese for lunch how my granny would eat brisket sandwiches and have a baby can of Coors every day. She was 92 when she passed with a smile on her face. My big treat is a chocolate chip cookie once a week
How many cappuccinos do you consume?
