My recent trip to Perkins got me baffled. I ordered an omelet double the size of what they normally serve (3 eggs) with double order of breakfast potatoes and hash browns. The waitress just stared and went “Are you sure???”. Then when she picked up my empty plate, with disbelief she asked my friends if I REALLY ate that by myself. I know I’m skinny but-really? Is that a lot for average Joe these days?
So anyhow. I just wanted to see your guys experiences.
Meaning, when you ordered food or ate something you considered normal amount, only to find yourself under questioning from friends and/or strangers.
And also what do you personally consider “a lot” of food in one sitting for a particular person.[/quote]
I consider a large quantity of food to be whatever it takes for me to feel satiated. At fast food places like McDonalds, this is typically 7-8 of those grilled chicken wraps or around 4 bean burritos and 4 chicken burritos at Taco Bell. At almost all restaurants, it’s either an entree sized salad with grilled chicken and then another entree. Otherwise, it will be two regular entrees. When at home, I’ll cook up a dozen eggs (I’ll keep out 2-3 yolks) and then eat about 6 slices of whole wheat toast and some oatmeal/protein pancakes.
Those breakfast places like IHop and so forth are never able to fill me up unless I order two of whatever they’re selling and then scavenge some from the lady.
