I put a little aside in an earlier post about broken biscuits not having any calories as they’d leaked out during breakage.
Bernadette came up with eating biscuits standing up as it reduced the calories, to which I suggested that worked because it meant they had further to travel and thus got weaker on the way down.
This has opened up a whole new page in the Diet Rule Book, and I’d welcome your comments about things you’ve heard, tried, and plain laughed at in the world of calorie counting and weight control.
Licking the knife after preparing a sandwich doesn’t count as the calories are already accounted for.
Similarly, picking up crumbs of cheese etc after cutting also don’t count as they are included in said sandwich.
Share your meal with a friend……. you halve the calories, and thus can eat twice as much.
Toast has fewer calories than bread as the calories have been dispersed during the cooking process.
Chocolate is a vegetable:
chocolate comes from cocoa, cocoa is a bean, beans are plants, plants belong to the vegetable category, therefore chocolate is a vegetable and can be included as part of your five a day.
Please join in the fun and add your contribution in the comments.
Dieting can be so dull, and to inject a little humour detracts from the hunger pangs.
Besides, it burns calories to laugh (seriously!).
