44 Ounces of Egg Nog
In the spirit of Christmas and getting things off to a great start I decided to go with Egg Nog.
I swung by Wawa and picked up a half gallon of pure ultra-pasteurized classic holiday goodness.
I carefully examined the nutrition information and used my 6th grad math skills. Now a serving of egg nog is one half cup and has 180 calories in it. I would need 11 servings (44 fluid ounces) to get my daily nutritional needs.
Breakfast was great. I had it while driving and it was creamy delicious.
Lunch was not awesome.
About 24 ounces into the day is when things started to go funny. I started feeling woozy. My eyes felt slugish, everything felt strangely farther away than normal…except my stomach. It’s still there allright. Nauseous is too strong of a word, maybe unsettled or grumpy would work better.
By the end of the day something strange happened. I was actually tired of egg nog. I was craving apples and oranges.
I also felt kind of like this:
But nobody ever said that science was easy. So i toughed it out.
Saturated Fat 275%
Vitamin A 66%
Vitamen C 22%
Calcium 165% (new way to prevent bone loss?)
Hunger: Interestingly, hunger has not been a big factor today. Maybe the stomach is a little to unsettled to feel hungry, or maybe as Nanna would say it “sticks to the bones.”
Cost: $3. Now that is some affordable sustinance!
Performance test: Started the run at a normal pace for me. My pace dropped quickly from normal to slow to embarrassing and by the end I was weaving back and forth across the road like a drunk. About 0.4 miles in I got a nasty side ache which persisted for a full 2 miles. It was finally replaced by mild nausea, and total exhaustion.
Taste: 6. Delicious in the morning. Less appealing by the end of the day.
X Factor: An unexpected side effect was the way it made all day feel like Christmas.
Ps. If you would like to try this at home, could I recommend mixing prunes into the diet? Surprising I know, but necessary.
