If you eat something and
no one sees you eat it, it has no calories.
If you drink a diet soda with
a candy bar, the calories in the candy bar are canceled out by the diet soda.
When you eat with someone
else, calories don't count if you don't eat more than they do.
Food use for medicinal
purposes never count, such as hot chocolate, brandy, toast, and Sara Lee Cheesecake.
If you fatten up everyone else
around you, then you look thinner.
Movie related foods, such as
Milk Duds, buttered popcorn, Junior Mints, Red Hots, and Tootsie Rolls, do not have
additional calories because they are part of the entire entertainment package and not part
of one's personal fuel.
Cooky pieces contain no
calories. The process of breaking causes calorie leakage.
Things licked off of knives
and spoons have no calories if you are in the process of preparing something. Example:
peanut butter on a knife making a sandwich, and ice cream on a spoon making a sundae.
Foods that have the same color
have the same number of calories. Examples are spinach and pistachio ice cream, and
mushrooms and white chocolate. NOTE: Chocolate is a universal color and may be substituted
for any other food color.
