The time-tested “sausage, egg and cheese” diet

March 10th, 2010 · 147 comments

Angie in Columbus, Ohio says this is the second (hilariously) furious fridge note to be posted lately in the office kitchenette. Adds Angie: “Who knew a Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich fit into a ‘special diet’?” Perhaps next time the writer could just hop (er, drive) on over to Taco Bell?

Dear Dirty-Rotten Fridge Raider, The following words describe you: -Thief: one that steals especially steathily or secretly -Despicable: so worthless or immoral as to rouse moral indignation -Rude: offensive in manner or action, discourteous -Jerk: an annoyingly stupid or foolish person The breakfast sandwich that you helped yourself to, without permission, was clearly marked with MY NAME and yesterday's date. YOU ARE NOT ME and therefore had no right to help yourself to MY Jimmy Dean, turkey sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich. Which, by the way, I miss dearly. Did you know that it had 250 calories? I did. Because I am on a special diet intended to help me lose weight and lower my cholesterol. Bringing my own food also helps maintain my weekly budget. But now, thanks to you, I have to go to the cafe  and spend money on something that doesn't fit the parameters of my special diet or budget. So thanks and bravo! Yay you!!

      Yup, mingbat is right. Skipping meals will slow your metabolism over time and make it more likely for you to overeat later out of hunger.

      Yeah, right… Look all of you overweight people – skipping meals does NOT make you gain weight. Pathetic excuses. My breakfast usually consists of a cup of coffee and a very, very small pastry or snack bar, if I even eat something, which I often don’t. I am underweight, have been all my life.

      If your theory was correct, I would be “hanging on to fat” because I skip meals and eat fewer calories.

      If you want to lose weight, you EAT LESS FOOD. It’s not complicated. Lower your caloric intake, and you lose weight.

      Even talking about losing “weight” is the sign of somebody who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Skipping meals makes you gain fat. Your body evolved to hang onto fat. Skipping meals puts it in fat conservation mode – there are measurable changes in body chemistry – whether you reduce your caloric intake or not. If you reduce your caloric intake by more than 10% and/or fail to eat 5-6 small meals throughout the day, you’re increasing your fat/muscle ratio. This, in turn, will mean gaining even more fat since muscle is the engine in which bodyfat is burned. Of course, you can keep yourself thin by perpetually starving yourself, but you’ll just be a disgusting, unhealthy person.

    • #2.6   Eric

      Yeah, right. Keep telling yourself that. There’s nothing more amusing than an overweight person who thinks if they skip meals it actually makes them fatter. Self-serving, pathetic excuses. I told you – myself, and many of my friends, are thin, and we don’t “starve” ourselves – we eat MODEST PORTIONS – something that overweight people can’t seem to understand. I have extremely low body fat. Like I said, I rarely eat anything for breakfast if I do. Other meals are modest in size. If you eat large meals and aren’t active, you’ll gain weight. Skipping meals will NOT make you gain weight. Please stop perpetuating this myth. If you want to lose weight, eat less food and get off your @ss.

      “…I rarely eat anything for breakfast if I do.”?

      So, when you do eat breakfast, you rarely eat anything?

      I agree with you, ya gotta burn more than you put in, plain and simple, but I can’t figure that sentence out.

      And provided the motivation to burn extra calories by stomping about, furiously typing, and lumbering back and forth to the printer and fridge to post the note.

      But then, if you’re an obese, melodramatic, pauper with a heart condition, that Jimmy Dean turkey sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich may be the only thing in life that holds meaning for you.

      Actually, the eggs in the Jimmy Dean Lite sandwiches are yolk-free (and therefore contain no dietary cholesterol). The entire sandwich has 35mg of cholesterol. The sodium is pretty off the charts, though.

Sometimes I have trouble telling us apart. Thank you for pointing out that I am not, in fact, you. I’ll try to keep it straight in the future.

    Yesterday’s date?
    Presumably I take that to mean you bought it yesterday? Just how much longer did you think that sandwich was going to wait for you?
    Lunch theif was probably just a fridge nazi who didn’t want to wait till your sandwich multiplied itself. Look for said sandwich in the bin, and being the lard ass you are, you’ll probably still eat it, in the toilet cubicle where no one can see you…

      If a sandwich multiplies itself, you get only one sandwich. 1 x 1 = 1.

    I know it’s not exactly a glass of milk, two eggs, and a slice of high fiber toast, but really the Jimmy Dean Lite sandwiches aren’t awful in terms of carbs-fat-protein ratios, 30/7/18 with 2 grams of fiber, though they leave a bit desired as far as sodium goes. A 250-calorie sandwich wouldn’t exactly make anyone fatter, and it’s a better idea than not eating or having a bagel with a few pats of cream cheese or whatever their cafe serves.

    I mean:

    HAWHAW fat people are so fat because they think they can just lose weight by enjoying small portions of food they already enjoy instead of eating a salad for breakfast like most people do or simply living off the fat on their fat asses! They have no self-control and a 250 calorie sandwich is for some reason an unhealthy choice to make for anyone to make, I should know I eat a 300 calorie bagel everyday and it is full of healthy starches! Everyone knows you shouldn’t even eat breakfast! They should starve to death for being so dumb!

      I don’t give diet advice either, mostly because weight loss has very little to do with what one puts into oneself, more to do with how one is able to burn off what one puts in before the body stores it as potential energy (fat).

      I don’t care if the note writer’s ass is so big that she needs an electric cart to haul it around. I don’t care what she eats. She can wrap the whole Jimmy Dean box in bacon and deep-fry the fucker. And food thieves suck.

      However, she has a health food delusion that equates a salty sausage grease-ball with organic carrot sticks. And she thinks that expensive, brand name, processed frozen foods are part of a “budget” diet, instead of buying a loaf of bread and deli meat. I bet that she’s one of those fat bitches always whining about her “special diet” while never getting any smaller. She probably tells the entire office about her magical Jimmy Dean sandwiches whenever a coworker brings unhealthy fast food for lunch. Then she stinks up the microwave everyday with her “health food.”

      Final score:
      +50 for surprisingly good grammar
      +100 for being the victim of theft
      -1000 for being an annoying, delusional, fat cow

      Because the only way to lose weight is to eat nothing but vegetables. You can’t simply eat somewhat healthier alternatives and expect to lose and/or not gain weight. And people who go on diets that rely entirely on preparing their own meals would never ever end up relapsing by eating something even worse or simply not eating at all when whatever they grabbed at the grocery store to eat when they didn’t have time to make eggs and a high fiber english muffin in the morning is stolen out of the fridge. These fat-asses deserve no sympathy and are simply bad people for thinking that making a slightly smarter choice once in a while will ever amount to anything. I get it, delusional diet people are annoying, but so are people who actually suggest baby carrots or salad as an acceptable breakfast food.

We never established the ingredients of salad so you can’t say that it’s less healthy. Both have their own place in the full meal. for carnivores that is.

      Oh, I would never suggest this Jimmy Dean Lite sandwich is healthier than a salad (unless it’s a Croutons, Cheese, Bacon & Ranch salad or something). I’m suggesting that the sandwich is probably healthier than what this note writer normally eats for breakfast, and also salad is not a breakfast food. A 250-calorie sandwich isn’t a terrible choice and isn’t going to make her ass explode like some of the other commenters are suggesting (unless that’s her fifth sandwich of the day). I’ve had these sandwiches, I’d never call them a “health food”, but they have a good amount of protein for the morning and relatively low fat. It’s not at all an ideal breakfast, but if this note-writer is pushing 200-250lbs it’s probably a step in the right direction for them (and I doubt they’re the type that would be able to deal with eating a salad for breakfast). It’s not a glass of milk, some fruit, and two eggs, but it’s not a Jimmy Dean sausage wrapped in a pancake on a stick either.

      This isn’t ‘Nam, there are rules and it’s all about meal timing. Lunch begins at noon so if there’s unclaimed food in the fridge after 12:45 it’s up for grabs. I know what you’re going to say: “my shift starts later so I don’t eat lunch until 1:30. ”

      Fine. Then go and get your food out of the fridge at noon and keep it safe because once that 45 minute window closes I’m helping myself. Did you get stuck on a call? Did your boss call you into his office as you were on your way? Too bad. The deadline doesn’t care why you missed it. There are no excuses. Hungry people are losers.

      Breakfast foods are fair game. Breakfast should be eaten before you get to work but if you opt to bring it with you it automatically becomes community property. I’ve snatched a McGriddle right out of a coworkers hand before. “Hey,that’s mine!” he cried. Well, you can come to the restroom with me in about two hours and you can have it back. Next time, hold on to it with two hands.

      Beverages are also fair game. This isn’t your house, it’s a community fridge. You can buy your Sprite out of the vending machine like everybody else or get a little Playmate cooler to keep your Costco sodey pops secure at your desk.

      I love the story about the woman crying over her lost lunch. She’ll get no sympathy from me. It’s a Darwinian world out there only the strong survive.

      Go ahead and post missives about theft, civility, honor and integrity. You’re entitled to your opinion, but possession is still 9 tenths of the law and once your food is in my belly, you aren’t getting it back. Go ahead and report me to HR. Better yet, call a cop. I’m sure you’ll feel better. At least until tomorrow when you wander in to the break room at 12:55 only to find an empty Ziplock bag where your grilled chicked used to be.

      And if she’s counting calories (or even counting calories and protein and fiber and so on and so forth) she probably has all of her meals for the day planned and had budgeted a specific amount for breakfast. If someone ate it, that fucks up her whole day.

      I agree that she needs to deal with it and not write a stupid note, but I also think people really need to stick to snarking the nature of the note and not the nature of the stolen sandwich.

    As someone who has been the victim of more than a few incidents of breakfast food theft, I think I’m on the note writer’s side here.

    Really, it’s so frustrating to have prepared stuff for breakfast, brought it in so that you can control your eating/blood sugar/whatever, and find that some dickwad took it. Regardless of what it was, it sucks to have your stuff stolen.

    As someone who has battled obesity since she was 5, and has major self-esteem issues stemming from social pressure and bullying over her appearance, I think a reminder should be made to those who are lumping every overweight person into one group: There are those of us who cannot lose weight due to medical/genetic reasons. I’ve been through a lot of different tests (far past the normal thyroid test which medication can deal with pretty well) and unless I can afford $150-$200 of hormone balancing medication per month I have to accept that I will never be able to lose weight (I’m on a pension, so affording that is right out the window). It makes it hard when I see society’s views that all overweight people are that way due to choice and/or laziness. I have severe ankle problems which aren’t weight-related, yet I still try and walk at least 20-30 minutes per day – often up to an hour or two if I need to go somewhere via bus. I watch what I eat and very rarely have fast food. Despite that I weigh in at 125kg.

    Self-esteem and body issues are all too common in women, leading to depression and eating disorders.

    Please, before persecuting every overweight person in general sweeping terms, I ask that you take some time and think about those who aren’t that way by choice.

    …And now back to your regularly scheduled snarking.

    In the note writers defense, those things are pretty healthy and are pretty expensive. I would probably be pissed too.
