Was this a REALLY bad dinner?

(7 Posts)

For dinner we had:

2 sausages (fried)
1 egg (fried)
1 rasher of bacon (fried) and 1/3 tin of beans.

I feel guilty... sad

Anyone know roughly how many calories were in that?

Sounds quite nice actually - fried egg 230 calories, sausages fried are 200 calories or so each, bacon fried 180 calories a rasher -depending on fat level, 1/3 tin beans about 60 calories.

No bread and butter? wink

But as long as you don't do it every day no real harm done

Well, the beans are good for you! And, no carbs, as such another bonus point. smile What kind of oil was it? Another bonus if it was Olive Oil? Don't feel bad though, you've eaten it now. Just try to eat better tommorrow. smile

(Am guessing around 700 calories)

230 calories in a fried egg?! shock I was thinking that was the healthiest part of the meal blush

It was olive oil

Eggs are about 85 calories each - which is fab. Unfortunately they do soak up a hell of a lot of oil when you fry them - all those nice little pockets in the white - yum.

Oil has 900 calories in per 100ml whether it's el cheapo rapeseed or extra virgin olive oil - sorry.

Yes WMMC but at least olive oil has some nutritional value! Am --clutching at straws-- trying to be positive here! grin Oh dear and I now fancy a fry up... and a sherry. (An earlier thread) but alas, am on a diet too.

Yes, so does sunflower oil and even rapeseed oil. It's not a bad thing to eat shit now and then, it's good. If you consider yourself to be on a diet you feel deprived and end up in a feel depressed/eat crap spiral imho.

Would be better to say 'ah that was nice, now tomorrow we are having something a bit nutritionally sound' and leave it at that.
