>Always look at an original label first - 1 tsp/6g of standard Better Than Bouillon chicken base is 680mg/28% daily intake of sodium. The reduced sodium version is 500mg/21%.
see post below
I've subbed out the packet of a chicken ramen with Better than Boullion, which is basically concentrated chicken flavoring in a paste form which you mix into things.
One pack of the Maruchan seasoning is 1,370 mg of sodium.
I would suggest using 1 tsp of the chicken boullion paste, and then jazzing it up with a tiny bit of low sodium soy sauce and a bit of sesame oil. Neither the soy sauce nor the sesame oil requires more than a little bit of a presence, they both go a long way.
You could also make your own chicken broth, basically boil celery, carrots and chicken bones until it creates a a delicious broth much better in quality than storebought. Then you would have an end product that is salt-free, and you could re-introduce salt levels to taste.
Hope this helps.
Oof. Fuck it, math time and i hope I'm wrong bc those look amazing
Looked up calories in beef and it's 187/100gr on fatsecret.
Cooked beef according to the USDA is about 50-60% water. I'll go with 50 for best results. Most jerky is the shit, tough cuts
PDF WARNING https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/wcm/connect/42a903e2-451d-40ea-897a-22dc74ef6e1c/Water_in_Meats.pdf?MOD=AJPERES
I'll assume we lose half of that in drying, bc those don't look rock hard.
(Original amt of meat)*0.75 = 85gr
(Orig) = 85gr/0.75
(Orig) = 113gr
That's 211cal, assuming no added fats.
It could be lower if it has a) more water retained than I'm assuming, b) more air than the meat did, c) less fat than assumed, or d) non or low caloric filler.
Someone who isn't on mobile at late oclock please prove me wrong.
Now wait a second. A LOT of the stuff posted on this sub isn't exactly clean and healthy and perfect. There's a lot of misinformation about nutrition that gets thrown around here. No one is perfect.
There are absolutely reasonable offerings at Taco Bell if you pay attention, plan ahead and know what you're getting and occasional fast food CAN be part of a healthy diet. What makes it unhealthy is either too much of it/consuming it daily. Cheat days exist. Let's not act like everyone can only eat quinoa and lentils every day and be happy.
When I have a cheat day where I want taco bell I get two of these:
Again, macros aren't great, but if my clean eating for the week can't suffer 410 cal, 20g fat, 44g carbs and 12g of protein once in 7 days then I've fucked up somewhere else.
I mean you do realize how much sugar is in a tomato right?
For reference tomato paste, which is just crushed tomato has 1.67g sugar per serving.
They actually add less sugar than I would have thought.
It seems like a lot of people (Especially fat-accepters) don't actually know calories are measured, or they don't actually look at the numbers. From what you said, 15 kgs of broccoli = 5000 calories. Compare this to bacon: 1 kg bacon contains more than 5000 calories.
D'you think they'd still argue that you gain more weight by eating 1 kg of bacon than 15 kgs of broccoli?
That's about 7 pieces per day, which is 140 calories and 30 grams of sugar daily. Nobody will get diabetes from that.
Apparently there are roughly 160 Calories in one of these types of sandwiches. Assuming the gif is played in real time, I measured the rate of sandwiches to be 125/minute. Hence, if we're eating them as fast as they're made, we're consuming roughly 20000 Calories/min.
I used this tool to calculate the BMR of an average man and found it to be roughly 1700 Cal/day = 0.847 Calories/min. Basically, the calories we're burning just sitting around is a negligible effect.
Apparently, it takes around 3500 Calories to gain a pound of body fat. We conclude that we're gaining roughly 5.71 pounds/min, assuming we instantaneously absorb the sandwiches etc.
Bag dimensions: 3ft diameter x 5 ft height
Volume of bag: 141 cubic feet
# of Bags: 20-30
Cheetoe Calories: 11.54 cal/piece (Source: Cheetoe)
Volume of a cheese puff: .56 oz (Source: Only Source I could find)
Cheetoes in one bag: ~242,335 pcs (141 CU.FT / .56 OZ/Pcs = 135707.4 oz/.56oz = 242335)
Calories in one bag: 2.79x10^(6) (2,796,541) calories in one bag (242335 x 11.54)
Total Calories: 20 Bag Est: 5.59x10^(7) (55,930,835.6) Calories (2.79x10^(6) x 20)
30 Bag Est: 8.38x10^(7) (83,896,253.4) Calories (2.79x10^(6) x 30)
So, I would guess between 55 million and 84 million calories
Semplicemente non è possibile.
Prendendo dati da qui e considerando una delle paste più caloriche, "Creamed macaroni with cheese", a 208 kcal per 100 g di pasta cottaa, 2300 kcal equivalgono a circa un kilo e 100 grammi di pasta cotta.
Non è umano mangiarne così tanta, neanche americano.
Se invece partiva da 2300 kilojoules si converte a 552 kcal, di molto più credibile. Oppure è effettivamente 2300 kcal, ma è un piatto da condividere (ma da yelp non pare).
Edit: con un po' di matemagica e google, un etto di burro ha 740 kcal, quindi la fantomatica pasta equivarrebbe a 2.5 panetti di burro (312 grammi)
Sono andato a cercare il loro menù e, anche se la pasta napoletana non c'è, ce ne sono un paio che passano le 2100 calorie. Sono talmente disgustato che ho mandato una mail per chiedere le dimensioni delle loro paste.
I want to emphasize that the breakdown is by weight (not volume). Your 20 oz soda is 20 fluid ounces (a measure of volume), not weight.
A regular soda is about ~90% percent water by weight. 20 fluid ounces of water weighs 570 g. A full calorie soda will have say ~10% of its weight in sugar, e.g., 20 oz of Coke has 65g of sugar - 65/(570+65) ~ 10%. There's also about 2-3% of its weight in additives (acids, preservatives, colors, caffeine, other flavors). .
But sugar dissolves in water. That is you can add 65 grams of sugar (about 16 teaspoons ~ 2.7 fluid ounces of volume) to 20 fluid ounces of water (570 g) and the volume of the water will be essentially unchanged as it will dissolve (you will find yourself with 20 fl. oz. of sugary water not 22.7 fl. oz.).
This article actually explains quite a bit about breaking bones.
That says that bones break somewhere around 3,000 and 5,000 Newtons, but there are a lot of factors involved with that. They also mention that a sufficient blow (3,300 Newtons) may only have a 25% chance to actually break a rib. Then there is the issue of the magnitude of the force versus how that force is actually applied.
A ~~Fruitella~~ Starburst is about 1" x 1" x 3/8" (2.54 cm x 2.54 cm x 0.95 cm) and weighs around...well, I couldn't find anything direct. Nutritionally, a 2.07 oz pack is 234 calories and one piece is 20 calories, so 234/20 = 12 pieces per 2.07 ounce pack, or 2.07/12 = 0.1725 ounce per candy which is about 4.9 grams.
A Newton is a kg*m/s^2 and F=ma and impact as F=2mv/t, where F is the force of impact, m is the mass, v is the velocity at time of impact, and t is contact time:
Picking an "average" force, converting the 4.9 g to kg, looking for V, and assuming an impact of 0.1 seconds
4000 N = 2 (0.0049 g) (V m/s) / (0.1 s)
We get a velocity of 40,816.3 m/s, or 40.8 km/s, 25.4 miles per second, 91,303.5 mph, or 146,939 kilometers per hour.
At that speed though, it would pretty much be a bullet.
Or I screwed up somewhere.
There are 2 kinds of carbs:
(Most) Vegetables contain mainly Fiber, and you shouldn't count Fiber if you're limiting carbs. Look for tables with net carbs if you're counting.
A McDonald's hamburger patty has no sugar in it. It's meat.
Ignorant people getting on a high horse and masquerading as know-it-alls are the most annoying thing on the planet.
Edit: I'm being downvoted, so here are some sources.
From the McDonald's official website. Hamburger customized to contain only the patty. 0g carbs.
External source for corroboration.
Nowadays people figure sugar is bad for you, so anything that must be bad for you must also be full of sugar, right?
instead of eating LESS, try eating more filling things.
like, according to fat secret There are 204 calories in 1 cup of cooked White Rice. Calorie breakdown: 2% fat, 89% carbs, 9% protein., whereas a cup of chopped brocoli has 31 calories: Calorie breakdown: 9% fat, 70% carbs, 21% protein.
edit: so you can eat almost 7 times as much broccoli to get the same number of calories.
Not to sound insensitive, but she must have been enormous. Plus, that was probably pricy as heck to make for the store.
From FatSecret, 1c of cream (Large might actually be more than this) is 821 Calories. For a drink. I mean, I eat meals with less calories than this.
It's mostly the seasoning.
Calories will vary, but you can easily find some ballpark estimates online:
Sooooo the internet thinks you're full of shit, which I guess is a good example of most people being gullible idiots since you're getting tons of upvotes
Oyster mushroom nutrition information.
They're not packed with calories, but I'd say are a damn sight better than nothing, and especially so when paired with other foraged/hunted/fished fare.
Cook ahead of time, particularly things that will keep for a couple of days without refrigeration if necessary. Pair these with food that does not need to be chilled or cooked. In a pinch, there is nothing wrong with a single McQuad if you are shooting for a macro target. One of those has 620kcal, 36g fat, 35g carb, 40g protein.
This week is a prelude to the rest of your life; there are going to be periods where you won't be able to keep your intake 100% on point. The key is to keep things sustainable, not beat yourself up if things aren't 100% perfect for a short time. This mindfulness, combined with preparation to get back on-plan at a specific point in time, will allow you to get through this period with a lot less stress.
If you must eat their food, this is also a good time to practice portion control mindfulness. They want fried chicken? Pick off the skin and take one less piece than everyone else. They want mashed potato? Hit up the green beans. They want a burger? Pretty much everywhere has a chicken or other healthier option.
Things won't be perfect, of course, but a big part of managing nutrition is being able to adapt in the short term when necessary.
Yes, one cup of fresh squeezed OJ is
>4% fat, 90% carbs, 6% protein.
That one single cup would be over the 20g allotted to a Keto diet, for example.
Coleslaw isn't low calorie.. Its full of mayonnaise and sugar...
KFC coleslaw has 25 grams of fat, 15 grams of sugar, and der is no protein in da coleslaw...
Milk w/o the chocolate has 12g. Chocolate milk has twice that.
So even if we are just counting added sugar, kids are getting half the daily value just from the drink that they have with one of their meals. That isn't even counting the actual meal itself. Also, the 25 gram recommendation is for adults. For kids, it would be less.
Calories in 1 tsp of bacon grease: 39 calories
Calories in 1 tsp of olive oil: 40 calories
140 calories, according to these 3 sources:
They go pretty light on the cheese. The chicken makes sense because the is around 37 calories per 1/4 cup of cooked diced chicken breast. So at most it is closer to 50ish calories since the worker put like a handful and a half.
>but things like lettuce and cabbage take enormous amounts of water given the amount of calories they supply.
Not as much as meat does.
Beef needs 15415 liters of water per Kg, Cabbage needs 237. This equates to 0.99 liters per calorie of cabbage, and 5.35 liters per calorie of beef.
Furthermore, this difference could probably be improved by growing more calorie dense vegetables, but I believe I've proven my point.
Another thing that makes the Impossible Foods burger is the salt:a 3oz piece of the burger contains 430mg of sodium, or 18% of your recommended max:
This link states that "Halal Cart Chicken and Rice" contains ~900 calories so your guess is fairly accurate. Delicious but also awful for you!
Holiday season is upon us, and the grocery stores are already stocking their shelves with all the holiday treat goodness. I was checking out a few of the Little Debbie snack cake boxes to see how much the damage would be if I got a box and the gingerbread cookies are not bad at all! Only 90 cals per cookie.
I know a lot of people aren't gingerbread cookie fans, but these are some of my favorite holiday treats. So, I'm looking forward to working these into my cals every once in a while to stave off my holiday cravings.
I don't believe this. That packet just seems so loaded with salt. I looked it up and found other sources for the noodles without packet:
Both seem to indicate the noodles have only 220mg of sodium total, which makes a lot more sense to me.
Burger 1100 Cal
Fries 750 Cal
Shake 760 Cal
2160 Cal Total. 166g of fat. 98g of sugar (Which is 8 tablespoons).
Edit: I can't find Saturated Fat info for the burger, but the fries and shake alone have twice the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat by themselves.
If you actually look up the nutrition facts for eggs, they aren't particularly high in any nutrient besides cholesterol: https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/usda/egg-(whole)?portionid=29442
Not sure why so many people buy the myth that eggs are a "super-food". IMHO beans are a much better lean protein source as the fiber content actually helps clean out excess cholesterol.
10g of refined sugar maybe. But it's practically nothing but carbs which are functionally equivalent. So it's really more like 22g of sugar.
I think you're wrong. A teaspoon of sugar is roughly 4grams. A stick of cotton candy is about an oz (28grams) or 2.1 Tablespoons (6.6 tsp).
Cite A Cite B
But... there's actually less sugar in 12oz coke than in apple juice...
IMO it's just misleading, and if it's fruit people crave they should just go to the actual fruit. Anything else is quite simply... misleading. Even eating gobs of fruits is not necessarily good for you.
Everything in moderation, and in some cases great moderation.
That can't be right: https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/generic/rice-white-cooked-regular?portionid=53181&portionamount=200.000
Are you weighing your rice after it's cooked but looking at the calories for uncooked rice? 700 calories of rice is a lot of rice.
In episode 2 we saw a usual lunch right?
5 Croquette buns + 4 Cutlet Sandwiches.
works out to around 3,695 calories. For lunch. Every day.
This is the milk that I drink.
And like I said in one of the other posts, I don't count sugars in my macros. But if you must know, 1/2 tbsp of syrup is about 7g sugar, and the banana is 14g of sugar. I guess I looked over the 3g of fiber in the banana. No cheese in the breakfast burrito or salsa, no cheese period.
With 1/2 - 3/4 cups of brown rice, I can only eat about 3-4 ounces of chicken before I'm satisfied. I mean, if I really wanted to I could eat double the meal but then I would be uncomfortably full. I also drink a lot of water so maybe that helps with portion control.
"Heavy whipping" can describe any cream from 25-40% fat. Most people on keto use 35% or higher, which has 3g net carbs per 4oz, which is more than enough to cover the cheese cake in a thick layer. So, 1/16th of 3, is what, 0.15? I'd file it under "negligible" in terms of serving size, especially considering it's entirely optional.
1 tbsp cinnamon = <2, + 1tsp nutmeg, 1tsp cloves = <1 for both.
Flaxseed meal is .17g net carbs per tablespoon. So barely more than 1 gram of carbohydrates for two of these pies, which is 32 servings.
No, that's not my brand of sweetener. The kind I use has no dextrose.
You're right on the coconut flour, my math was off. It's 9g per pie then, bringing the total net carb count up to a little under 40, rather than a little under 30 -- 4.2g for a large serving instead of 3.5g. Important to be accurate, but that's not going to prove catastrophic distinction to anyone's diet. A single, accidental sprinkling of garlic powder on your steak will make the same difference.
I've followed keto for 18 months, lost 70lbs of fat, increased my deadlift by 150 lbs, and started keto as a physically active health nut. But thanks for your kind advice.
And again; math. I don't know if you fancy yourself as a crusader or just a troll, but accurate numbers help either way.
Yogurt isn't what gets you. It's the granola. It can have 250 calories per half a cup.
Her parfait had about 1.5 cups of vanilla yogurt, at around 300 calories, and a full cup of granola which is another 500 calories or more. Plus the fruit.
It's amazing how fast you get those calories.
>'golden' rice is a p.r. ploy by syngenta et al to pretend like they are doing it for humanitarian reasons
Considering that golden rice isn't even managed by syngenta, I have a hard time believing that.
>apparently 5 grams of dietary fat is what's needed for a healthy person to get the benefit so at 0.7% fat you need to eat 700grams (dry) of rice per meal. good luck
Where did you pull that 0.7% figure out of, your ass? Considering that the rice itself supplies you with about .5 grams from one cup, I'm gonna say yes. For that matter, where are you getting your requirement of 5 grams from?
I heard somewhere here fresh popcorn is "low-enough" carb or something in small amounts like 1 cup actually.
Edit: Why is this downvoted? You can see it here that most popcorn have around 4g-5g net carb in one cup. Yeah not low carb but low enough like I said. So you can eat popcorn as a small snack.
lowfat chocolate milk: 25g sugar/8oz
coca cola: 26g sugar/8oz
simply orange orange juice: 22g sugar/8oz
They all seem like an equally bad idea to me.
Mustard, yes even "normal" yellow mustard absolutely has calories. Here. The thing to remember is there is a certain amount of calories (and sugar and pretty much everything else on the label) that can be above zero but still listed as zero on the package according to FDA rules. mustard is very low in calories but also has small serving sizes. So each serving size has fewer than 5 calories so can be listed as zero.
Fun fact tic tacs can say zero grams of sugar on their nutritional label despite being made almost entirely of sugar. Simply because the serving size, one tix tac, weighs less in total than the FDA minimum required reported weight in sugar for the label
Edit fixed tic tac from my autocorrect gibberish
This website shows a serving of whole milk to be one cup, meaning that there are sixteen servings of milk in a gallon milk jug. So it should be opened and closed about sixteen times in its life. Maybe someone could /r/theydidthemath and figure out if the threads can take that kind of ware.
16 ounces of cream cheese is 1,500 calories and 100 g fat. 2 cups of heavy cream is 1,600 calories and 109 grams of fat.
The amount of penne pasta used makes me think this is 2 servings. That is NOT healthy. I am all for heavy cream and cream cheese but the amount used is not needed.
Isn't the point of using zucchini instead of pasta to make the dish somewhat healthier? I love that you add 5 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil to it, which is at least 750 calories and 80 grams of fat. I guess if you're only cutting carbs it's an effective method though.
I don't want to sound like I'm criticizing your dish though, it looks great. Butter is awesome, and a butter & white wine deglaze is way better for you than an alfredo.
That.. that doesn't sound correct. Salt and sugar aren't two opposites that cancel each other out.
So I looked it up: 1 can of Coca-Cola (12 fl oz) contains 50mg of sodium, so 0,05g of salt in a ~350ml can (if it were water that would be 350g). That's nothing and I doubt you could even taste it in water, it's hardly "heaps of salt."
Source 1: Sodium content in sodas
Source 2: How much salt in one can of soda stating that the amount in one can won't amount to much in your diet.
Salt is there to enhance flavor and remove bitterness.
Mhm so this site tells me one belgian waffle has 412 calories, so 22 have 9152 calories. A normal person needs about 2000 calories and a bodybuilder needs around 5000 according to Google. So in terms of calories its already a lot.
So lets look at your stomach size. An average stomach has 1.4 L of volume. And it takes around 5 hours until the waffles are out of your stomach again. That means 11 waffles have to fit in your stomach. One waffle has roughly a volume of 0,3L. I just searched some recipe and hope that this was accurate. So 11 waffles are 3,3L. So even if a waffle is only half of that it will hardly fit in your stomach. So maybe just buy 11 waffles and some softdrinks!
That number is way off. Higher fat is higher calories, because fat is more dense than other nutrients. You're right to be cautious and count, but 1500? No way. More like 570 (although the carb count on this listing seems wrong/high).
Make soups at home! ☺
They are tasty (depending on the spices and ingredients), they are satisfying, healthy; and mostly they have ridiculously low calorie values (e.g. many vegetable soups are around 20 calories / 100 g; but even the less-low-cal ones are generally below 100 calories / 100 g), you can eat TONS of it = no hunger. ☺
Some good recipes: https://www.fatsecret.com/recipes/collections/nutrition/low-calorie/under-100-calorie/Soups.aspx
Hey! I’m guessing this is a misprint because I found the nutritional info for this package of donuts here
It appears these donuts are actually 230 calories each!
Carb police here. A cup of coffee has .09g of carbs, 20% of its total calories. All carbs are born of sin, you cannot consume coffee. Try bison fat in water instead.
Apparently, a Pringles chip can has a diameter of 3 in. or 7,62 cm. Let’s remove 5 mm to make up for the can and the space so we are left 7,12 cm or 0,0712 m.
The diameter of the earth is 12 742 km or * 12 742 000 m*.
This means the earth has a diameter 167 393 589,069 times bigger than the diameter of a Pringles.
According to this, a pringles weigh 1,75 g, multiply this by 167 393 589,069 and we get 292 938 780,872 g of pringles.
Then we take the nutrition value, so 150 calories per 28g, we get an astonishing ~ 1,5693e+9, divide that by the average human needs of 2 000 calories (fuck the babies, I don’t care about them), this means we could feed around ~ 784 657,5 people for one day with this chip.
It's certainly contributing, but without an honest daily accounting of where your total calories are coming from, it's difficult to say.
I don't even know how to begin searching for "skinny mocha half skinny blah blah" so I did the iced cinnamon thingy instead. It's 270 calories. Assuming that your regular diet was exactlly at your TDEE without accounting for that single drink, a single 270 calorie drink above and beyond TDEE would result in 36.5 lbs of weight gain in a year.
So, to say "starbucks is making me fat" is a misrepresentation. The total number of excess calories above and beyond your TDEE is what is making you fat. Every 3500 calories that you consume that your body doesn't burn results in 1 lb of adipose fat tissue being created. But it's not the starbucks per se it's the excess.
>55mg of sodium per can. It’s like drinking a pizza.
Hey, if it were gramm I might agree. Half a teaspoon of salt amounts to 1 gramm of sodium. 1 gramm are 1000mg. So we're talking about 1/20th of half a teaspoon, or 1/40th of a teaspoon here.
One slice of 12" pizza contains 462mg of sodium. How does that compare to sodas?
Well, let's assume you only need 6 hours of sleep a day and watch Doctor Who the rest of the time. 400 hours of tv, with 18 hours of watch time per day, gives 22.222 days. Let's round it up to 25 with bathroom breaks, time needed to heat your taco,...
1 taco contains 173 calories (may be more, depending on the taco), so 100 of them is 17300 calories. Spread out over 25 days, that's 692 calories per day.
Using an online calculator and some trial and error, assuming that comic book guy is 1m75 (~5'9") and 200 kg (~440 lb), is 50 years old and has a sedentary activity level (good assumption during a Doctor Who marathon), he would lose approximately 11 kg (~25 lb) in 25 days.
So he would definitely be hungry, but he wouldn't starve.
A fit person uses less calories (assuming no physical activities), so assuming the same height, but only 80 kg (~175 lb) and 25 years old, he would lose around 5 kg (~11 lb) over 25 days.
Still a very unsafe diet, but I guess you should survive.
It really is an outrageous statement. The Maruchan noodle block has 9% sodium (https://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fjrd&rid=346691) compared to 56% sodium in the entire packet (https://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fjrd&rid=1524776 - remember this is half a serving so double the amount).
The packet has 56% and the noodles have 9%, so the noodles have less than 1/5th the amount.
Feel free to paste this around, a lot of people are parroting misinformation about this lately
> 8200 mg sodium
Hey now that's only.... 3 and a half days of your daily suggested sodium.
EDIT: However, this site says they only have 4140 mg (3oz serving of a 27oz bird * 460mg). Which is still bad but not as bad, I suppose.
I lost 35 pounds in a couple months eating fast food for every weekday lunch. Turns out just getting a jr burger, jr fry and a diet dr pepper is not only cheaper than the mega combo but also just as tasty. Cutting out the full calorie coke alone and that saves you a shitload of calories.
I just took slightly more effort. Gaining weight is laziness. Literally just don't get a large Coke refill and you've cut out 315 calories instantly. Then get a small next time and you've cut out nearly another 90 calories. Switch to coke zero or diet pepsi and WOW 215 calories disappear. It's literally that easy to remove 630 calories a meal from your diet or 1260 calories if you do this for lunch and dinner.
If that's a family size bag, it's about 270g of chips. Lay's Wavy Originals have 160 kcal per 28g serving, so a 270g bag is 1542 kcal. Average daily calorie intake for an adult is about 2000 kcal, so you'd be getting more than 3/4 of your calories from chips if you eat a whole bag.
> BTW the fat profile of a beyond meat burger is healthier than a beef burger which is loaded with saturated and trans fats.
This really is not factual btw. It's is slightly better, but not anything to compare as being loaded vs not loaded. It is an interesting alternative to eating beef, but it's not "health food" by any means.
Per four-ounce uncooked Beyond Burger patty, you’ll get:
Compare that to four ounces of raw beef (80 percent lean):
If you use extra lean ground beef (90%), it has less fat (11.3 g), less saturated fat (4.5 g), but still has 0.8 g trans fat. Source
Lean meat has even more: SEVEN times the protein.
I trust my meter much more than I trust GI tables.
I doubt different water temperatures would make any difference. It is wheat, after all.
>one cup of couscous
A cup of dry couscous is over 100gm carbs.
A single meat Whataburger clocks in at 590 calories (http://whataburger.com/food/item/whataburger).
The patty itself is 250 calories (https://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fjrd&rid=2646746).
That looks to be 2840 calories for a 10 patty burger.
That's a ton of calories, but honestly not as bad as I thought it would be.
All the things that make salad enticing are bad for you. Most people don't like raw greens and olive oil. Check out Red Robin's Southwest Chicken Salad. Mmm healthy https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/red-robin/southwest-grilled-chicken-salad
This was with Oscar Meyer bacon: https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/oscar-mayer/traditional-bacon
and Kroger's medium eggs: https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/kroger/whole-eggs-(medium)
I hope they're not lying, because they'll get in trouble with the FDA for that. I would instead compare it to specific brands of black beans instead of generic "black bean nutrition info" type searches.
For example, Ralph's has 110 calories for 130 grams dry. Safeway is 132 calories in 100 grams. Krogers is 100 calories for 35 grams.
Looks like beans can vary for whatever reason, so just trust the bag.
As mentioned by others, there is a small amount per serving (tbsp) - so if you're using it in higher volumes, like when you make ice cream, it's definitely not 0! (And a lot will depend on your source; this site, for example, lists Land O' Lakes at 1g per 2 tbps.)
According to fatsecret.com, there are 75 calories in a 1.5 fl oz serving of Skinnygirl Vodka. (Most vodka commonly has about 100 calories.) It's more expensive but I treat myself to it a lot.
I've been surrounded by people who have tried to lose weight and failed, plus one person who is a close friend, who lost 100 pounds about 10 years ago, and has kept the weight off since then.
The person who has kept it off counts everything he eats. He is big on WW, and he is meticulous about tracking. But...he also loves to eat. So he knows coming up to dinner, how much room he has left in his day for that, and how much he used by going to an amazing dumpling place in Chinatown, or a great pizza place in the Village (works in NYC).
He's my role model in my weight loss journey. I count everything, using MFP, and I leave room each day for 2 squares of Ghiradelli dark chocolate mini squares. I leave room for the 72 calories (I'm currently eating 1520 a day), and I don't feel like I'm depriving myself of all that is good in the world of food. I think that if I were the sort of person who started at 2 and wound up eating the whole bag...yeah that's not going to work, but it's one of those things where I can eat two, enjoy it, and leave it alone. Will I eventually say "don't need them at all"? Who knows, but if that doesn't happen, I'm still ok with it.
I work really hard at ignoring the people who insist that there is no room at all in any weight loss diet for anything other than healthy foods. The people in my life, who are the most vociferous about that are the ones who have tried and failed, so I'm not sure what I'm supposed to learn from them. The worst example of that is my MIL who was on some sort of wacky liquid diet, fake food thing, where she lost 50 pounds and promptly gained it all back, while pretending to still be eating that crap, and lecturing me about how to eat healthy.
That number stood out to me, because I could've sworn the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake at Cheesecake factory was like 2250-2300. Apparently, it's (")only(") 910 calories a slice now, which feels like bullshit to me. Makes me think they're cutting it thinner because of their history on years' worth of "Top 10 highest-calorie foods" lists.
If you really want to cross the 2200 line with cheesecake, though, you could get 2 slices of their Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie-Dough Cheesecake, since they're 1150 calories per slice.
/r/Fitness feels like the worst possible place to have this conversation... I feel dirty, like I'm preaching Satanism behind the pulpit at a church. And not the feel-good kind of dirty, like preaching Satanism while also discreetly getting it on behind the pulpit at a church :\
No, not for real. I have no idea why people keep parroting this. If you want to help correct the misinformation feel free to paste this around:
I see what you're saying, but I highly doubt that most of the sodium is ever in the noodles vs the seasoning. It's difficult to find definitive information as most of the published official resources show data for the full block + the full packet of seasoning, but meal tracking sites show that the block of noodles themselves contain only 290mg (9%) of salt:
That's vs the >1500mg that the block + seasoning has:
Honestly, I'm not even sure how you concluded that the noodles have more sodium than the seasoning packet. It's pretty obvious that's not true...
My pizza dough recipe uses 150 grams of flour per serving (32 cm/ 12.6 inch thin crust pizza) which is 550 kcal. How the fuck do you get to 2000 calories a pizza without dipping it in ranch or something.
EDIT: Nevermind, I looked it up
I was thinking about a pizza with some mozzarella slices and a bit of pepperoni, not something with a kg of cheese on top of it.
lol well I've entered it for you. 556 Calories from the top search result.
Yeah, those 11 milligrams amounting to 0% of the daily recommended allowance of salt are a real killer.
Dude, I originally commented trying to help you by suggesting alternative foods you could pursue. You don't want help though, you want to keep making excuses. People are literally shoving the information you need in your face and you're literally choosing to believe the opposite of what they say. Corn & rice do not have gluten. Even if they did, gluten is not bad for you. Tortillas are not high in salt. Even if it was, salt is not bad for you.
TL DR; healthy food is not more expensive that junk food, nor is it harder to find or to prepare. If you want to keep making excuses for being unhealthy, come up with better excuses.
~20g net carbs in a 1/2 cup of brown rice
You'll probably be fine if you eat no more carbs for the day. Why would you eat rice on a low carb diet?
https://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fjrd&rid=3662036 this should make it easier for you. Alternatively, if you'd like to do this regularly, you can find just powder cheese mix at some stores. I got a white cheddar one from a British shop and bistro sells one in some grocery stores. If in canada you can get the kraft one at bulk barn, but I haven't seen it seperate elsewhere.

Never self tested for ketones. Last time I went to the GP I had to give a sample and had to explain the ketones. I think I had a rare non-keto day a week before seeing the GP and I probably get 30-40g net carbs on regular days so it’s not too hard for me to get into ketogenesis.
I made these more for a small, spicy snack than as a 1:1 sub for tots. These are also a bit bigger than your average tater tot and way more dense. For ore-ida 4.5 tots is 80 cal, 20g carb, and 2g protein. https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/ore-ida/tater-tots
Monster would actually be better. [Rockstar](https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/rockstar-inc/energy-drink-(can\)) has a fuckton of sugar in it (62g).
Egg drop soup! It makes a crazy amount and if you get a good broth it's amazing. I thought I'd mess it up because I'm not a very good cook, but it's literally the best egg drop soup I've ever had. I leave out the white pepper, ginger, and green onion. Usually I add zucchini or chopped baby carrots or something.
Because the quality of the bread and cheese that that sandwich is made of are shit. If you got whole wheat bread with real cheese, it would be pretty good, but you get thin, white bread, with a Kraft american single between them. Both of those are just empty calories and processed food.
If all you're eating for lunch every day of the week is processed cheese product on bleached white bread you diet is going to suck because you're getting mainly carbs, sugar and fat.
I used FatSecret when I was mostly tracking via website. I think the name turns off a lot of people to it. I switched to MFP since it seems to be the most popular app for /r/loseit, but I think I generally liked FS's app better, too. I find FS's database to be at least on par with MFP, as well.
where in the world are you getting that from?
Also, Google seems to think beef has closer to 8g protein per OZ.
Bagels and cream cheese is not something you should eat when you're trying to lose weight, sorry, not in my world. Just don't eat it, it's easy.
Nissin's Top Ramen contains 0 trans fat.
Maruchan's Instant Ramen also contains 0 trans fat.
The FDA also recently banned trans fat from foods.
Furthermore, I'm pretty sure the oil that instant ramen is fried in is more miscible in boiling water than on the surface of a starchy non-porous carbohydrate, and simply removing that water before eating the ramen removes plenty of it, as is recognized by thousands of people who don't even have an education in chemistry.
There are 1411 calories in 240g of peanut butter. That would be 352 calories in EACH serving of this. Would you just eat 352 calories of peanut butter on its own and call that "healthy"? It is not healthy, and you are spamming these Tasty-esque, unoriginal videos in this sub without seeming to really think about if these recipes are actually healthy. Using Greek yogurt and bananas does not healthy make. These would be great on other subs perhaps, but seriously? How would anyone think this is healthy?
Yes, a glass of milk would be better. But pizza rolls do have 6g of protein in a serving ( https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/totinos/cheese-pizza-rolls ) and eaten in moderation, paired with veggies, are an example of a food that isn't as bad as some junk food.
Thanks for the link and good point. I’ve seen similar entries such like so:
I know it’s not the most reputable site but it is interesting that there’s a wide difference between the entries on the same site.
Still I have a hard time not believing the label on the package, you’d think if that were wildly off they’d face some sort of lawsuit, right?
This is my take on Alton Brown's recipe (I suppose it could be Taco Potion #22, but...)
Low-Carb Taco Potion #19 (Garlic + Onion + Oregano)
Yields 18.5 tsp.
Mix together and store in an airtight container. I usually use 3 tsp per 8 oz meat.
Nutrition info is available here if the link works: https://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fjrd&rid=14347072&entryname=Low-Carb+Taco+Potion+%2319+(Garlic+%2b+Onion+%2b+Oregano)&dt=17984
1 tsp has 1.1 total carbs - 0.5 grams fiber = 0.6 net carbs.
Alton cooked fresh garlic and onions along with his meat, so he didn't use any in the mix; I'm lazy and don't always do that, so I wanted some hint of garlic and onion in the mix.
>So do you have any facts/evidence or is your word just fitness law?
Let me break this down for you, kiddo-
Average kernels on one medium corn cob: 1/2 - 3/4 cup.
Calories in ~1/2 cup of corn kernels (not on cob) = 72+.
Average "calories" in corn, while still on the cob: "85."
Therefore, if the calories from the yield of one corn cob...
is roughly equal to the total calories while still on the cob...
THEN CORN COB CALORIES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN TOTAL.
Are you satisfied?
wtf my 417g of jasmine rice is 1478 calories? i looked up steamed jasmine rice and its totally different. which one do i use :(
Of all the things I'd call frankenfood, McD burger patties aren't one of em. Use the link to dial up some nice keto-friendly indulgence. I personally like a pounder (quarter pounder, 3 extra meat, 3 extra cheese + sauce and onion garnish) with the buns removed.
The QP buns and sauces themselves are about 43g carbs, sauce is likely 8g of that.
I count ~25 slices of bread (the bottom ones were hard to count).
A slice of white bread has 100 calories.
A slice of cheese has 96 calories and there would be 24 of them.
A tbsp of butter also has 100 calories. So 12.5tbsp for 25 slices of bread.
In total you have ~6000 calories. Because all the calorie values are so close together, eating this is the calorie equivalent of eating 60 tbsp of butter.
> Wonderbread has a lot of sugar
Source? According to this Wonderbread (Classic White) only has 2 grams of sugar per slice. That is hardly "a lot of sugar".
If you're talking about Jell-O Chocolate Pudding Cups or something like that -- while they individually don't have a lot of fat, they do have a fair amount of carbs. If you're not burning carbs, they get turned into glycogen, and eventually fat. One pudding cup accounts for 4% of your recommended daily caloric intake (on a 2,000 calorie diet.) So if you're putting away 4 of them a day, you're not leaving a lot of wiggle room for other meals. That is, of course, if you're watching calories.
According to FatSecret, Prosecco has about 7.18g of carbs and 3.63g of sugar for every half bottle.
