Dieting rules


If you eat something and no-one sees you eat it, it has no calories.

If you drink a diet coke/lemonade with a chocolate bar, the
calories in the chocolate bar are cancelled out by the diet drink.

When you eat with someone else, calories don’t count if you don’t
eat more than they do.

Food used for medicinal purposes has no calories, eg. hot
chocolate, brandy, toast, ice cream.

Movie-related foods have no calories as they are part of the entire
entertainment package and not part of one’s personal fuel, eg. jaffas,

choc-dip ice cream, marshmallows, potato chips.

Broken biscuits have no calories. The process of breaking causes
calorie leakage.

Things licked from knives or spoons have no calories if you are in
the process of making something, eg. peanut butter from a knife when

making a sandwich, ice cream from a spoon when making a sundae.

Foods that have the same colour have the same calories, eg.
mushrooms and white chocolate, spinach and kiwifruit ice cream. Note:

chocolate is a universal food colour and may be substituted for any

other food colour.
