Why Food is Confusing
The Diet Joke – New York or Bust!
In honor of our upcoming trip to the Big Apple, I picked up some Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk ice cream. A half a cup has 20 grams of fat, and 11 grams of saturated fat. That’s more than half the saturated fat most of us ladies need in a day. As they say in New York, “Oy vey!”
Portion Control Check-In
A half-cup of ice cream is about the size of a tennis ball, but not as bouncy.
It’s in the Bag
How many Cheetos in a 99 cent bag? More than you’re supposed to eat at once. According to the bag, a serving is 21 Cheetos, which, it informs us is “just the right amount for crazy, cheesy fun!” Here’s the whole bag in a bowl.
21 Cheetos Salute!
Here are 21 Cheetos counted out. It’s the bowl on the right, which I ate for some crazy, cheesy fun! Then I started to eat the bowl on the left, because I wanted some more crazy, cheesy fun. (Who can control themselves when they’re having so much fun?) Then — you won’t believe this — there was no more crazy, cheesy fun. All the crazy, cheesy fun was gone.
The damage: 380 calories, 24 grams of fat, and 700 mg on sodium.
Diet Plan Pizza
With special “Ageless” oxygen absorber packet! Delicious, they say in the ads! I didn’t try it, so I can’t say, but I think a new pair of tennis shoes comes with that same packet.
What? Diet Plan Pizza isn’t as big as it looks on TV?
Only 5 inches.
