Stacked some Uber eats coupons/promos together and decided to try out a pizza and fried chicken place. Large meat lovers pixza with 4 tenders, 5 wings and two biscuits for $4.11

The fried chicken was pretty good. Biscuit was above average. Wings were fine but might have been the dipping sauce bringing that down as I wasn't the biggest fan. Pizza was a little doughier than I like. Ugh I ate too much and now have to deal with working through a food coma

Hey there's nothing wrong if day 1 is a cheat day. You're technically still eating healthy, you're just on your cheat day right now. :p
If we are being truly honest with nutrition, this was not that much of a cheat. Portions are under control, protein was high to help him from needing to eat again in an hour or two, not a lot of sugar. Add some vitamins and fiber (usually from veggies) and it is actually a reasonable meal healthwise.

I wouldn't call this a cheat day at all. We just need to get past the false concept that eating fat is bad. Once you do that, you'll see that this is not too bad of a meal. Not stellar either due to lack of vegetables, but not too bad. Swap out the biscuit for tasty sauteed greens and put it into your regular rotation.

Overall agree - The carbs of the pizza and the biscuit are the worst things there health wise. They offer zero nutritional benefit.

The rest is just cheese, meat, and oils (fat). Nothing that is really bad for you.

Shame on you, OP, and everyone supporting this horrible decision. "Well, 2/3 of his meal is just plain horrible, but it's still healthy." Sheesh.

Go back to look at the picture with the thought that fat is healthy. Now you'll see reality.

This is America, that's what a diet platter looks like here.
Right. This was just a nice healthy starter before the main course of donuts, twinkies and mozzarella sticks

Thank goodness we have covid and closed borders to keep your threats at bay
