    On Slim Fast I used to find I spent a lot of time looking for new 100 calorie snacks - what things have you picked up and been shocked by the calories? For me it would have to be chocolate biscuits at nearly 80 calories per biscuit for most brands! I remember the days I would eat a packet and not think twice about it, that was probably over 1000 calories :eek:

    Yep once you start calorie counting it is shocking to see how many calories are in things! I tend to look at calories in everything now, not just stuff I'm intending on eating but food that my family are having too lol! I'll be at my mum's or auntie's and be checkign the calories in their stuff lol! Yes biscuits are shocking, and I was the same as you, could quite happily munch through a whole packet in one go :eek:

    Yes I saw the calorie content for Harvester meals, whoa! :O
    Couldn't believe it! We have one just down the road from us but luckily only ever go there once in a blue moon (once or twice a year if that!).

    urban myth about those shakes .... to thicken them they used lard :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    well I wouldn't be surprised. A few years ago before the whole super size me thing and all that McDonalds milkshakes and mcflurrys were not vegetarian as they contained chicken fat. The reason McDonalds for years called McFlurrys Mcflurrys rather than ice cream, at no point was it referred to as icecream, allowed them to not have to meet the EU standards for icecream - allowing them to use whatever the hell c**p they wanted in them.

    Yes definitely put me off too!! That was always a little treat me and hubby would enjoy, he'd nip down the road for two McFlurrys (never been keen on the rest of the food from there!). But think now I'll add McFlurrys to the rest of my McD's ban!!!! Ewww, hate the place!

    Macdonalds is my biggest weakness to be honest, I love double cheesburgers, chicken nuggets with BBQ/Sweet and Sour dip and the fries :copon::whoopass::asskick:

    Ahh hubby loves mc donalds..i hate it..i would never go there if it wasnt for him unless i was getting the yogurt thingy. thats very nasty about the ice cream..i will never eat there again! We went there the other day and i didnt know what to get that would be healthy so i got a plain mc chicken..the .99 cent one...and after i ate it i looked at the wrapper and it said 400+ calories and like 30+ carbs i think..i was so grossed out...never again mc donalds!!!

    I was quite surprised by muller rice... I know it's nowhere near the calories you're all talking about and it's by no means bad but there's 200 cals in ONE pot of muller rice and I would have sat and ate 3 of those in one sitting as a SNACK!

    Shocking!

    lol I consider 200 to be pretty shocking, I'm like you chocolatecat it wasn't that the things I ate had massive amount of calories it was that I'd eat so much. I love jaffa cakes but at 40+ cals they aren't healthy and I could normally manage to munch through the whole packet in a day which is around 500cals absolutely crazy!!!

    A packet in a day is pretty reserved lol, I used to happily munch through a packet of jaffa cakes in oh about 10 minutes! And I wonder why I put on weight, hmmmm!!!
