This was inspired by Sunflowers honest fast food post.


I have a few 'food myths' I tell myself...well, I try not to, but


Broken cookies? No Calories


Food eaten on my (or anyone else's) birthday? No Calories


Food eaten in any moving vehicle (trains, planes, automobiles, buses)? No Calories


Food eaten off someone else's plate? No Calories


Food eaten in the dark? No Calories


Food eaten at a movie, sporting event, carnival, party? No Calories


Food 'tasted' while cooking? No Calories


Anyone have any to add?

Having the diet soda negates the dessert's calories!

what a good thing to bring up I'm sure alot of us have this problem


food eaten off a fork or spoon but no plate is dirtied-no calories


food eaten directly from the carton- no calories


food eaten directly from a bag- no calories


food drank out of a glass- zero calories


we find all kinds of ways to justify our food intake that is why I must follow the you bite it you write method no matter how big or small a portion.

Right now, the food myth that's causing me the most harm is:

Healthy food... no calories.

Ugh! Fruit is good for you, but unfortunately it's full of sugar. And like everything else, I must practice moderation.

Y'all have hit my top ten! My worst was was if nobody sees me eat it, no calories. I live alone! Uh oh...

And Tracie... Wow, I've had an ah-ha moment. Healthy food has calories that add up too. Thanks!

Nuts are a healthy substitute for salty, crunchy chips, so eat all you want!
