Ode to My Love (aka Ode to Bacon Cheese Fries)
O' my dearest love, how I've treasured thee in such sweet moments of gluttony
Thou hast given me great delight in thy goldeny goodness
The crisp, the salt, oh the gooey potatoey delight shall forever be with me
When we shall again meet I do not know
All I know is that in this parting sorrow I have truly loved thee with unwavering depths
Goodbye for now, my greatest love, as tonight will be our last commune for a while
My dreams will forever be filled with your crunchiness
My thighs will forever carry the marks of my devotion
I am bereft at our parting, but I know that we shall be together again
I cannot long be without you, but for now I must
My buttocks depend on it
Here is the nutritional value on a regular plate of bacon cheese fries from the Outback Steakhouse, retrieved from www.outback.com . We typically, and by we I mean Julie and I (aka FG#2 and FG#1), go to Ham's Restaurants for our BCFs. However, I would think this nutritional data would be in the ballpark. I am fortunately able to lose weight while eating BCFs once a month. Once a week? Not so much.
Total Meal - Aussie Cheese Fries - Regular
Calories per serving: 327.9 For the whole thing? 1967.5
Fat per serving: 24.0 For the whole thing? 144.2
Fiber per serving: 2.2 g For the whole thing? 13.1
Never mind the sodium and the rest. How does this work out for WW points? Per serving 8. Per the total plate? 51 pts. I usually figure it based on 2/3 of the plate, which is what I typically consume, so I normally put in about 35 pts when I track them.
I figure once I have a good 3-4 weeks on track under my belt it will be time for a monthly BCF excursion. Not until then though - I have to get a good bit of self-control under my belt and build up some activity points. So, for the next 3-4 weeks it's"So long my love".
