I usually don’t have sweets in the house – generally speaking I don’t really crave them, but there are some things, when placed in front of me, that have a tendency to disappear in fairly short order. The first are potato chips. Crisp, salty goodness… Should a bag open, it will not be closed until only crumbs remain (which usually doesn’t take long). The second are Guylian chocolates… Aromatic roasted hazelnut praline filling enrobed in silky Belgian milk chocolate… I will literally continue to eat these until I feel like I’m going to vomit. I cannot stop. It’s different for everybody though… Should you find yourself out to dinner with Sheldon and find crème brûlée gracing the menu you’re in for a treat. They might as well serve it with a straw ;-)

More recently Sheldon went to town at McDonalds – A very infrequent binge both he and I used to enjoy when I was living in Edmonton. Since he was going for a record, he posted his attempt: 2 cheeseburgers, 1 medium fries, 6 McNuggets, 1 McChicken, 1 Parm Chicken Wrap and a Coke. Impressive to say the least. So I decided to do the math:

2 Cheeseburgers 600 calories
1 Medium Fries 380 calories
6 McNuggets 280 calories
1 McChicken 360 calories
1 Parmesan Chicken Wrap 340 calories
1 Medium Coke 210 calories
Total 2,170 calories

To be honest, I was surprised. I thought it would be a lot higher. To put it in context most people could burn that many calories riding for 2.5 hours at a solid medium tempo. Next time you’re going to have to commit and shatter that record Smart ;-)

So Bikeridr is curious to know… What’s your dietary Achilles heel?
