Eating Dis(order)

“I have an eating disorder…I’m about to eat dis order of fries, dis order of wings, and dis order of nuggets.”


As of late, it seems most restaurants or fast food chains are giving us a “deal”. When choosing their establishment, we are so fortunate to choose from 3 or 4 or 5 or more options for the low price of $5. Jackpot. Even better, a free appetizer is offered when you order off the 2 for $20 menu. I don’t even like chicken wings, but these were free. Better polish off the basket!

Without a second thought, we start putting together a number of combinations. Likely, these are not the most nutritious food choices; and likely, this is more food than we would typically order.

Rather than letting a number of things influence your food choices, make a plan.

Look up the nutrition information before arriving at any establishment to help you make a more informed decision. Without looking at the menu or what is fresh out of the fryer or what the other people around you have ordered, have an order in your head that you are confident and will still enjoy.

It may not be an eating disorder to have dis and dis and dis, but perhaps disordered eating.
