No judgement, just an observation from my local Subway yesterday. I was standing in line with two women ahead of me to order.

The first woman, slender in body size, ordered a SMALL sub with turkey and provolone cheese on a whole wheat roll. She had added most of the vegetable choices and had it seasoned with oil/vinegar, oregano. Got no chips or cookie and asked for a glass of water.

The second woman, at least 50-75 pounds overweight, ordered a LARGE Italian cold cut sub on a white roll. Had only tomato and lettuce added, then asked for mustard and mayo and oil and vinegar and salt and pepper. Added in chips, a soda and a cookie.

Two women, same place, two ways of eating, two results. It couldn't be much clearer. Made me refrain from adding chips to my Subway meal--and I, too, got water instead of soda. Lesson learned.

Any processed lunch meat is bad for you. Make yourself lunch at home as much as possible.

Good point! Of course, you could just get a cheese/veggie Subway and avoid the nitrates in the lunch meats altogether...and I've sometimes just gotten a veggie sub and found it just fine, though I prefer the added cheese--more filling than plain veggies.

Observing the two orders ahead of me was eye-opening. Two ways of eating at the same fast food place--and two different body sizes. I wonder if both women thought they were eating healthy?

Whenever I traveled I always liked to stop at a Subway for lunch cuz it was always clean and I liked the ham or turkey sandwich with lettuce/tomato/mayo on the dark bread. However, more times than not I would get a migraine headache during the trip or shortly thereafter. I finally figured out that I must be allergic to the nitrates in the deli meat.

Since stopping eating cold cuts I haven't had a headache

LMAO. I always see that. Then they try to convince people that the diet coke tastes better than regular coke.

Eating Fat or Eating Skinny:

I think its a matter of what people enjoy. From what I have seen in my years is that fat people eat because they ENJOY it. They get great pleasure from eating. They light up even in conversation if food is the topic. Its the pleasure they get out of life - eating. Me, I look at eating simply as a means to fuel my vehicle for the next exciting thing that I will do. Sure I like food. I love seafood gumbo, Thai food, Chipotle Burritos, Tommies Burgers, Pinks Hot Dogs, but you'll never see me getting all orgasmically excited about it like a lot of fat people do when food is mentioned.

Just curious... do you actually eat Tommies Burgers, Pinks Hot Dogs, Chipolte Burritos, Thai, and Gumbo? In most of your posts, you seem very disciplined on what you eat and do.
