Cops Can’t Eat

image

This is a topic that is dedicated to my cop friends (I’m sure it applies to others) and is something that has bothered me for eternity. COPS CAN’T EAT!!

Even when I was at my heaviest I got there by eating calorie rich foods and being lazy as hell. I DID NOT however get there by eating gross flavorless calorie rich foods. I let my taste buds breathe a little. I would try anything, and in all seriousness this has actually has helped me greatly with my dieting, meal planning and cooking. I gained knowledge on a tremendous amount of spices and flavors. image
You see cops have 4 food groups. They are: Pizza, Fast Food, Sandwich and Chinese. God Forbid you suggest anything out of these food groups and you are banished from the food conversation.
I remember one time specifically we worked with a guy who ate at the same pizza place every day. Our team couldn’t eat anywhere else unlessimage he was on vacation. Finally when he was on vacation I got the team to try Indian food and they liked it. Once he returned however, pizza again…every day. Yes, at the time I worked in a neighborhood where the food options were very limited, but there were places you could go to or cuisines you could try, but all was refused. In the end it comes down to being lazy and cheap. Every place I have worked in the cops were the same.
Just recently a cop friend of mine had court in my borough (he works in Manhattan, I in Queens) he asked me what there was to eat for meal in the surrounding area. I started listing the best places for lunch. What he said turned my face red and made steam come out of my ears. He said, “no, that sounds too adventurous I’m just going to go back to Manhattan and get subway” SUBWAY!? Are you kidding me?!? You work in one of the wealthiest commands in the city with a huge number of restaurants and take out places and SUBWAY is your go to?! Yes I yelled at him. This has always been a pet peeve of mine.
It is no lie that many cops, like me, gain weight while on the job which causes other health problems and I believe that this terrible limited eating has a lot to do with it. Getting a cop to eat a sandwich on whole wheat toast instead of eating a hero (sub, hoagie whatever) is like trying to take their first born.

Eating a broad variety of foods not only helped me to diet and lose weight in the future but it kept my tastebuds from being bored as hell which more often than not is one of the biggest reasons people break down and binge on their diets. How many times on a diet can you eat grilled chicken and rice before you go crazy and eat a dozen doughnuts? (Yes, it’s true cops eat doughnuts) The trick is to experiment with a wide variety of spices, flavors, marinades and cooking techniques. Even if you don’t cook at all, there is PLENTY of takeout from any nation on the planet, especially in this city, available at your fingertips. If you want to see, go on the Internet, or download grubhub or Yelp and check it out. Try something different. You will thank me…at least I hope so.
When you get outside of your flavor comfort zone you will come to find that there are healthy and delicious choices EVERYWHERE. I can go to almost any restaurant and look at the menu and pick something that will be both healthy and delicious. A huge problem cops have, and people in general, is breaking out of this “comfort zone”. When I talk to people (a lot of cops) they say oh I would eat better, but I don’t eat xyz and I don’t like zyx. I next ask them if they’ve ever tried it, if they tell me, “no, but I just know I won’t like it” our conversation is pretty much over. Saying things like that is a blatant refusal to attempt to change your lifestyle simply based on nothing but what you “think” won’t taste good. TRY IT! Then, if you say you hate it, fine, we’ll try something else. At least you tried.
The bottom line is, as cops, we’re everywhere. We have the most exposure to everything and anything, use it to your advantage. If you like something ask what’s in it. Remember it and use these spices at home. Try new things. Life isn’t all pizza, Chinese, Fast Food and sandwiches, especially if you’re trying to shed some pounds, you might surprise yourself with what you like.

  5. I went to a very moving retreat two weeks ago at Casa De Maria in Montecito CA “Falling Into Grace: The Terrible Beauty of Transformation”. One of the many transforming questions the presenter posed keeps ringing in my ears: “Why is there music if we are not supposed to dance?” So you go girl!

  9. / A couple of boys holidays on the North Yorkshire coast but nothing too crazy abroad. One of them involved me losing the keys to our accommodation whilst at a fun park. One of our friends parents had to drive over an hour to bring us a spare set. Took a while for me to live it down.

  10. [39] AGCanadian PR app fees for a family of four are about 1,800 but that may prove to be money well spent. And there is a really tenuous argument that it can be deducted as an investment-related fee, sort of like the fee for a safe deposit box (and no, I am not advising that).

  11. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a bit analysis on this. And he the truth is purchased me breakfast because I discovered it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the deal with! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I really feel strongly about it and love reading extra on this topic. If possible, as you turn into expertise, would you mind updating your blog with extra particulars? It’s extremely helpful for me. Large thumb up for this weblog post!

  12. Morsomt. I gamle dager, p̴ Hvaler i hvert fall, kalte de dem Badegjester, Рs̴ fikk de med alle utenforst̴ende enten de var fra Oslo eller ikke. Har du undervist p̴ en barneskole i Fredrikstad, Hanne? Da jeg laget sommerblogg til elevene mine og underviste dem om blogging, brukte jeg din som ett av eksemplene. Ei av jentene i klassen min fortalte at hun hadde hatt deg p̴ skolen.

  15. Koska olen saanut sähköpostiin kommentteja graafiin liittyen, niin tähdennän nyt vielä, että tässä vaiheessa ennen vaaleja kysymys on VAPAAEHTOISISTA ilmoituksista.Vasta 1500€ ylittävät lahjoitukset pitää ilmoittaa tässä vaiheessa ja vaalien jälkeen läpi päässeiden pitää ilmoittaa loput. Lisäksi kuulemma VTV:n palvelun suhteen on ollut ongelmia ja ilmoituksia on senkin takia jäänyt matkan varrelle.Ne puolueet, joiden palkki ei tässä nouse korkealle eivät siis ole tehneet mitään rikollista.

  16. Mr Iredale it has been very strange not having you around at the start of the new year. I am pleased to report that there has been lots of learning taking place around the school and, as usual, the children have been kind and friendly to each other. We look forward to reading about your travels and seeing photographs of you wearing the Athersley South shirt.

  17. " Health care falls costless from the sky and the omniscient government bureaucrats and politicians distribute it to all equally."health care in Canada covers everyone for 1/2 what we pay – and Canadians are free to buy up if they want more/better but when you cover everyone – the costs to everyone is LESS.In this country – the biggest threat to our budget is MedicAid – which YOU DO PAY FOR.If you have to pay anyhow – why would you be opposed to the most cost effective method?

  20. Max, you make a telling point, referring to the SCARED party. Like Michael Moore or not, and sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t, I think he nailed it in his movie . We in the United States have all become scared to death (and I use that term on purpose) of one another. Nowadays, of course, our government wants us to be afraid. We’re more manageable that way.

  21. De acuerdo con mucho de lo que dice Poch pero con una no puedo estar de acuerdo. Cuando dice que los ataques del 11-S están rodeados de todo tipo de incógnitas que se prefiere no remover a que se refiere. Los propios americanos estrellaron los aviones o facilitaron a los terroristas que le volaran medio pentágono?. Todo eso era el precio a pagar para poder dominar asia central y el medio oriente?. NO ME LO CREO. No creo en teorías conspirativas. No me gusta que se lance la piedra y se esconda la mano.

  22. พูดว่า:Mark Teixeira is? a good man, good for the job, he’s hired. F Boston I’m so glad he went to the Yankees because he has a sister in Hoboken,NJ and Mark was always a fan of Don Mattingly. So this makes life great for him.

  23. +1, la censure n’a jamais ni nulle part permis d’éradiquer la connerie, comme la prohibition n’a jamais enrayé l’usage des drogues. Il serait temps que l’on considère enfin les hommes et les femmes comme des êtres pensants avec un esprit critique et qu’on cesse de vouloir contrôler ce qu’ils peuvent entendre ou lire.

  24. Ari:First off a big thank you for what you have put together in this blog and videos. Just found out about Advanced Style yesterday and I think I've watched every video, I adore these woman and aspire to be like them one day! I'm 56, have an at home business called octobermoonboutique.com and am a Personal Asst. to a music manager here in Nashville as my full time job.These ladies are my heros and you as well for showcasing these beautiful woman.

  25. I have no opinion on them. If they work, then try them.There are plenty of spiritual recovery methods out there. AA is premier.They can help anyone, not just Christian.Counselling usually just sets the alcoholic up for failure because he can either deceive or be deceived by promises of self-help.The best place to send a despairing alcoholic remains AA.Peace.=D

  26. On further reflection I’m not sure if your face and that lady’s face really look that much alike. Remove the glasses, block out the hair, and ignore the similar clothes–the faces aren’t exceptionally similar. It is with those things that there is a passing sense of similar.

  27. While I was owner of HSI, we were involved in many EPA projects. I can tell you from experience that they are more about power and authority than the Environment. I believe the EPA should be greatly reduced in it’s scope and authority, if not completely dismantled.ronwilliamsuscongress.com
