I just watched the Biggest Loser and they had Dave from Mens Fitness on. In a challenge tonight it was a better food choice type challenge The contestants were supposed to be choosing one food over the other.

Multigrain bagel with light cream cheese vs a McDonald’s style have and Egg McMuffin

OK, I like the Egg McMuffin lots. Thesy are yummy and greasy and not good for you and neither is the bagel. The Egg McMuffin was deemed to be better but man that is a lot fo calories

Burritos vs 18 light beers

We all know that burritos are not really good for you and they were apparently a better choice than 18 light beers but come on. The kicker was that 17 light beers would have been better. Would either of these be a healthy choice? Beer will slow you metabolism, the Burritos have protein but are really fatty.

Calories are not the only thing that matters for healthy eating. Watch the carbs, watch the fat!

Then to make things worse the trainers tip from Bob Harper was to eat Dark Chocolate. Again I love chocolate but isn’t it a bit irresponsible to be touting the wonders of dark chocolate a couple of days before Halloween?

I am still watching the show on the PVR right now but just had to comment on that.

  1. That is what they were saying on the show. I can not imagine any way that 17 light beers could be healthy for you.

  2. Well you know that these kinds of TV shows have to be dramatic to grab people’s interest. A common sense dietitian on the show would probably not be as exciting. However comparing 17 light beers with burritos is silly-who is going to consume 17 light beers? Why not show burritos and then a healthier alternative like fajitas? The Egg McMuffin is one of the healthiest fast food breakfast choices. It would be better on a whole grain english muffin and if they could reduce the fat content of the cheese. A whole grain bagel is not a bad choice, however depending on the size the calories can really add up, and the Egg McMuffin does include some protein.
    Eating healthy is basic-more fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains while watching portions sizes. Limit sweets and alcohol.
