It Doesn't Count If...

I just got a cute email from NeverSayDiet called Calories That Don't Count.  In it, Daisy Westmoor, author of It Doesn't Count If..., offers us a few situations when you don't have to consider a diet slip-up a calorie catastrophe. Some of her examples:

It doesn’t count if…

-You consume it in workout wear
-You've exercised anytime within twelve hours of eating it
-It was the last piece in the bag.
-It was the last bite on the plate.

I have a few (OK, a TON) more! Some of my faves, which I employ on a daily basis.
It doesn’t count if…
-I’m buzzed while eating it.
-I’m in a dark movie theater while scarfing it down.
-There's no nutritional content provided.
-It’s someone’s birthday. Even if that someone is a total stranger wearing a tiara and sitting 30 feet away from me (aka last night.)
-It’s fruit (I consumed an entire quarter of a watermelon this morning.)
-I’m on vacation.
-I’m walking while eating it (hello, Candy Expo.)
-It comes directly out of the cereal box or ice cream tub or peanut butter jar (as opposed to, you know, actually portioning it out.)

What are your favorite excuses?
Hope you had a fabulous, long, excuse-free weekend!
