100 Calorie Packs Kept Me Fat

This Sparked Me!

I fooled myself eating 100 calorie treats. I sabotaged my health thinking I was eating less to feel good about eating something nutritionally wrong. I bypass them all together I haven't missed them one bit. Money is better spent on fruits and organics I used to think were out of my budget range.

    I ditched the 100 calorie packs too. If I want a cookie or a muffin, I have found that the real thing...full-fat, full-sugar, etc. is better...mainly because I am satisfied on much less. 100-calorie packs are only good for long car rides when all you want is a little pick me up. Of course, if you pack a cooler with apples and water, that would be best.

    Amen! 100 calories for an orange(I'm guessing) is much better than cookies. Great observation.

    Glad that you found out that those goodies are nothing but a bunch of calories that is not good for your body. Fruits and vegetables are way better.

    I agreee. Eat fruits, veggies and nuts for snacks. On accaision eat quality dark chocolate. It is much more satisfying.
