A Maine chicken sandwich destroyed an entire Super Bowl weekend

It was an impulsive decision that I wish I had never made, because it literally ruined my weekend.

Intermittent fasting diet

First, some background – many of my friends and colleagues talk about my lunch choice, but I can be a creature of habit and tend to have a cup of Jello and an apple for lunch every day. . It’s just enough to fill me up but also not too much to weigh me down and put me in a food coma right before I have to hop on the radio and be entertaining.

I also won’t be eating until 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. because I’m doing intermittent fasting, which is basically selecting an 8-hour window out of 24 a day to do whatever you eat. According to Hopkins Medicine, this helps your body burn fat. And while I do my best to eat healthy during the work week, every once in a while I treat myself on Fridays.

Last Friday was one of those days.

Because instead of going with the usual Jello cup and apple, I decided to switch and have a spicy chicken sandwich. What I’ve had before and has been delicious and never had any issues. But the universe had other plans this time, because when I got home, I felt bad.

What followed was a sleepless night, part of which was on the bathroom floor, white as a sheet. Needless to say, the open house I was supposed to visit in North Portland, Maine on Saturday morning was canceled, and I spent much of the day sweaty buried under blankets in my bed.

In fact, my body was so out of whack that I had a nasty chill I couldn’t get rid of and my fingernails turned a dark purple at some point. Even as I type right now, my stomach still feels wobbly. Honestly, I wouldn’t wish food poisoning on my worst enemy (if there was one).

It’s not the best way to spend Super Bowl weekend — a weekend that basically consists of binge-eating several different types of chicken and other terrible foods. Moral of the story? Next time you have a big weekend in store, don’t start it with an impromptu chicken sandwich.
