Ever had that OH CRAP moment with food?

Ah yes, the OH CRAP moment.
This occurs when you've been eating someting either regularly or just once, but then realize you've been either miscalculating the calories or were eating an ingredient you had been trying to avoid.
I PREVENTED an OH CRAP moment when I discovered my diet soda had been filled with regular at the theater, the taste gave it away.
I experienced a major OH CRAP moment when I had just eaten a bunch of a fruit and cheese salad my mom ALWAYS makes with low fat cheese only to later discover she had used cheese w/ 500% more fat as she had a coupon to use up.
Ooooops. That kindof blew my calorie and fat budget for the next week or so.

I'm a vegetarian and visited a China for a few weeks, I thought I had found this one item on the menu that didn't have meat in it (the kitchen said it was totally vegetarian) and kept eating it almost everyday.

Well, it had meat in it. I discovered this when I was chatting with a tour guide.

In my case, it's usually a menu item described as "grilled" that shows up fried beyond the shadow of a doubt. Unfortunately it always looks so good and I'm so hungry that I don't care, it's like "screw it, I tried my best, must be fate". Yeah, not smart, but at least it only happens a few times a year.

I used to "oh crap" when I would order a grilled chicken sammy and it would have mayo on it. i dont eat meat anymore and rarely go out to eat so that doesnt happen too often - but it certainly would upset me when it did.
the other day i found out my protein shot at jamba juice has 35 cal - I only get a jamba juice once or twice a month so certainly not a diet buster but i just never knew.

Yes! Years ago (pre-Internet, Google, and Calorie King!) a friend of mine who runs 20-30 miles a week, is in great shape, eats naturally, etc. was a big fan of the scone. She said she liked it because it wasn't as sweet as other pastries. I interpreted this as 'good for you.' Then I went on vacation and pounded scones. Scones for breakfast. Scones for snack. Scones, scones, scones. When I got back from vacation I went in search of the scone to bring home. I found a package, turned it over to read the nutritional label and about had a heart attack! Oh crap, to say the least.

My "oh crap" moment was with my FAVORITE cheat food - Peanut Butter and Jelly - I love some beautiful thick hearty soft bread and cherry jam or whatever... with creamy or chunky peanut butter in control of the sandwich! I started getting healthier and my wife was like - how much peanut butter are you putting on that thing? I figured out I was going CRAZY - I put like 6 TBSPs of peanut butter on there easy.

My cheat was like 800+ calories - OH NO!!!!! I am still sad.

Corner Bakery

Ate it all weekend (was travelling) and thought I was making good choices...especially with salad. Came home, looked it up...about 1000 calories per meal. Never again.
