    and in a pot noodle theres over 500kcal (scary eh? - i dnt actually know how i ate them now i know that...but i know where that stone came from when i first started uni!!lol)

    Yup! I love coffee, particularly the sort of speciality coffees you get in Starbucks and Costa. So this info was a big shocker to me the first time I saw it:

    Starbucks Calories - Fast Food Nutrient Details!

    Examples:
    Tall Chai Latte (Tall is the smallest size, folks) = 222 calories
    Venti (Large) Cocoa with low fat milk = 521 calories

    Hi ya, :)

    And thats just the calories, dread to think what other C***P is in them:eek: :eek: . Once you do this diet you really do look out more before it goes into your mouth.

    Despite what we may think about Butter etc., have a look next time you are in your local Supermarket at the amount of calories in a Lurpak light Spreadable and a supposedly healthier Benecol Spread you will be suprised.

    Haribo are my downfall, daren't have them in the house but there are approx. 30 calories in EACH sweet. Ugh!!!

    A typical indian meal consisting of two poppadoms, chicken korma and pilau rice will set you back a staggering 81g fat and 1223 calories!!

    And thats only if u don't have the extras - naan bread, onion bahjis etc!
    I once read that 1/2 of a plain naan bread was 250 calories and 1 'typical' onion bahji was 100cals!
    I'm soo glad I leave the curries well alone these days! lol
    It's true what they say, if u dont have something for a long time u dont crave it anymore. :)

    Much love, chelle xx
