I am a huge sucker for those 100 calorie single packs of snack foods!
I am thoroghly tricked into thinking I had something forbidden.
It is very consoling to say to myslef "I had a whole package of Oreos!" LOL

Yesterday I discovered Hostess 100 Calorie Cupcakes! Girl Scouts Honor these are amazingly good! I am pretty sure it's just one cupcake divided in three because it tastes like the same cake, icing and cream filling to me except wee! They are really smidgeny but you get three of then and you know you are going to peel the icing off and eat that seperately so its a really interactive little treat, too. Totally worth it.

Now yesterday I also saw but didn't buy 100 calorie frozen moouse sold in little individual cups. Looks like ice cream to me.
Has anyone tried it? Would you recommend it?

HI! I am trying to figure out a way to lower my calorie intake whithout my family noticing I am "dieting." Bleh. We have a pretty standard routine we follow to make grocery shopping and meal planning easier on everyone (me). And you know we eat out once in a while (like the rest of the world) so I tried really hard to organize some meals (with some major help since my math isn't so good). Thought I'd share!

(Hope it makes sense . . .)

"Negative" Calorie Foods: Fruits and Vegetables
List of Negative Calorie Food

Negative Calorie Food List :

To make a negative calorie food list, we must be precisely clear on what we mean. There has been some confusion about this phrase. Some have thought that this kind of food contains no calories at all. This can't be right as long as all kinds of food contains at least some energy.

We're going to present you with a list of this kind of food. If you follow it, not necessarly without any other kinds of food, it will increase metabolism naturally, and the result will be weight loss - especially compared with eating a meal where these foods are not included.

Now, it's time for a definition. When we say nagative calorie food, we mean foods which contain so little energy that the body actually uses more energy to digest and absorb the nutrients. So if you subtract calories you'll burn from the calories you eat, the result will be negative. Only by digesting the food you have eaten, there will be a net loss of energy or a negative energy balance. This is what must happen if you want to lose weight but with this food you don't have to do anything but eat it to accomplish that.

You can also eat protein in combination with such food. Good protein will help you control your appetite as well as increase your metabolism because the total amount of calories are not reduced too much.

Here is the list:

Fruits

Apricot, mandarin orange, blackberry, melon canteloupe, blackcurrant, peaches, clementines, plums, damsons, raspberry, grapefruit. rhubarb, guava, strawberry, honeydew melon, tangerine, lemon, watermelon.


Vegetables

Fennel, aubergine, gourd, broccoli, leek, cabbage, lettuce, carrots, marrow, cauliflower, peppers, celery, radish, chicory, spinach, cress, tomato, cucumber, turnip.
