The Bell Gives Me Strength

Not that I’ve gone lately, but every time that I work out I get a craving for Taco Bell. There is just something about that grade F beef smothered in cheese and sour cream that hits the spot after an intense workout session (such as walking for an hour straight). I understand that my body is craving nourishment, but I have no idea why it constantly wants to run for the border. Maybe it’s my body refusing to let go of the cushion is has grown to know and love or maybe I am simply just that fat that I can’t stand to not eat what is obviously awful for me. Either way, there is nothing better than a supreme steak chalupa meal with a large diet Pepsi to melt away the aches and pains of exercise.

Chalupa Meal

As you can see, eating this meal piles on another 910 calories to my daily diet. Good thing for me I don’t get an order of cinnamon twists or a caramel apple empanada for dessert… I think about it and almost never get one… or both… almost never.

Calorie Count gave the steak supreme chalupa a D+. That’s almost average, so it can’t be that bad for you. Right?


  1. Well I did have faith in you, but you're obviously not serious about this.

  2. 910 calories, huh? So I'm assuming "a" Steak Supreme Chalupa is actually 2 SSC's and a crunchy taco?

    (sigh)Guess I'll start brushing up on my CPR...

  3. I guess I should have clarified... the Steak Supreme Chalupa meal consists of two chalupas, a crunchy taco and a large drink. I believe the last time I checked (yesterday), it was the number six.

  4. hahahaha... I always want a Mt. Dew after I'm done working out... A solid 170 sugar calories back in the system.

  5. Just start drinking diet stuff, it'll help a ton.

    I also started, and still do, a thing where when I'm at work, all I drink is water, but any other time just diet or something.

    Good luck.

  6. Go for the fresco menu. Most of the taste of Taco Bell, much lower fat and calories.
