Peanut butter - excellent back-country food.

They also didn't show pop-tarts.  One single pastry is 200 calories....400 calories per pack.  This is excellent high-altitude starter food if you're going on a climb or whatever in the cold wilderness.  But if you're at home sitting on your ass, no so much.

That actually looks like the makings of a pretty good meal, if all of those plates were on one table.
 
2013-02-19 02:10:59 PM  
It is pretty astounding when you compare what we would think of today as a "proper meal" against a modest (2000 calorie) daily maximum.

Agreed.  1,425 grams of celery on a big plate may not be as massive as 1,425 grams of celery on a small plate.

My aunt was a model and taught me this dieting trick: If you drink a cup of vegetable oil, then you can eat anything you want and you won't gain weight.  The vegetable oil coats your digestive track and prevents caloric absorption.  One cup is for a female of average height.  Guys six feet and over need to drink two cups to have the same effect.  I've been doing it for over three years (since my senior year at high school), and I haven't gained a pound even though I eat like a farking pig.

Well, fats are better for you than carbs unless you just finished, or are about to go on, a run. They will keep you full longer and won't spike your blood sugar.  Of course, I don't think anyone is going to defend a glazed donut as low in carbs or above the possibility of giving one a sugar spike, either.


I'm interested to know if their dorito pile is accurate.  I seem to remember they got in some trouble with the Canadian government for having a serving size of "X chips" and come to find out they didn't mean full chips, but X of the average size piece inside the bag.  So people were consuming up to twice as many calories as they thought, given how many partial chips are in the bag.

Sounds more like the oil would cause you to vomit your brains out, thus preventing any absorbtion...

I can remember watching an adventure race years back.  One of the teams carried and ate sticks of butter, because the calorie to weight ratio was the highest.  Kind of grossed me out a little.

That was the same team that also shared a single tooth brush between five team members.  Yeah, that kind of grossed me out a lot.

Density doesn't matter, unless you think foods get healthier if you compact them first.

4 slices of bread is 4 slices of bread, even if you mash it into a round shape and push the air out.

Then the question becomes: will fat keep me full longer, or will simple carbs?  The answer is fat.  Thus, the donut beats the bagel.  Not that it matters, since neither is anything close to a food people should eat while watching their weight.  But still, it amazes me how many people seem to view bagels as anything other than a candy.
 
2013-02-19 02:22:44 PM  
Some of those seem to be accurate. A donut has like 400 calories, not "200".

My cats are a tad underweight, but they won't eat any additional cat food (which we food out the hard way and ended up wasting an entire extra can of cat food each day). So now I mix in a tablesoon of butter or bacon grease each time I feed them. I've only been doing it about 5 days, so I'm not sure if it's working yet. The little guy (4 years old, 7.5 pounds) is a butter thief but regular cat food doesn't interest him. This way he gets both butter AND cat food.

Probably why they have to list weight or volume too if they include an item count.

355 ml soda cans list their calories by 250 ml (1 cup) portions. Stupid.

My rule of thumb after looking it up a few years ago is a bagel is about 200 calories. Maybe large New York bagels loaded with cream cheese add up to 400.

A person can consume 1425 grams of celery and just reach 200 calories, making it one of the most calorie-efficient foods.

That makes celery a calorie-inefficient food. Peanut butter was the most efficient food on the list.
 
2013-02-19 02:28:09 PM  
Celery is a bad example.  Your body uses more calories to digest celery than it has in it.

A bagel of a given size weighs more than a donut of the same size is what I mean.

I can barely finish a large bagel.  I can house 6 glazed donuts.

There I was reading the posts and reached yours, didn't notice the name, and my brain went ahead and left the room...

What was left decided to imagine the possibilities of the effect of drinking a full glass of vegetable oil and I couldn't decide between earth shattering diarrhea or the ability of actually being able to down a full glass without throwing up. And without either of these effects, just the simple aspect of the cholesterol and fat intake would probably cause fissures in someone's circulatory system.

All that was left was a flash of some pictures I've seen at "People of Walmart".

Had you went with 34 spoon-fulls, it might have snagged more people, but the hilarity would have been missed...

Kudos.

So you can barely finish a large bagel, which will have less carbs AND less fat than the 6 glazed donuts that you have room for.  That is nonsense.

If what you really mean is that donuts are delicious so you eat despite your stomach sending you a full signal, that I could agree with.

Also, nutter butters, cashews, peanut butter M&Ms, untoasted cinnamon-raison bagel with lots of cream cheese, pepperoni+cheese and my personal favorite: Ensure+.  350 calories in just 8 fl oz.  Also 13g of protein to help you feel full for a while.  I can pound two of those in less than 30 seconds.  Great for cold weather excursions (mine are mostly AT skiing).

I don't get why bulimia is so frowned upon. It actually makes sense, and apparently works.

Instead of torturing yourself by starving or over exercising, you can just eat a good, large meal and then throw it up.

I don't buy that it's really all that harmful to you, as long as you keep the puking down to, say, once every other day or so. You know -- just don't overdo it!

Bulimia is definitely the route I will take if I ever have to lose a lot of weight.

I don't know about all that other shiat but all the plant material binders in dry cat food are indeed not at all good for them and do break down as sugars and cats don;t need no damn sugar. You seen a lion eating a sugar daddy lately? They eat meat. High protein, high fat and very, very low carb is what cats should be eating.

As a skinny, skinny to the point of having people ask when I got out of Dachau, person this is very discouraging.  I am six foot two and fluctuate between one forty and one fifty.  I had made a resolution to gain thirty pounds by summer.  According to calculators I have to consume three thousand calories a day to reach this goal.  It is not going well.

I don't understand how someone can ingest that many calories in a day.  I'm not saying that as a, "wow, how can people let themselves go".  I'm saying that as the skinny white boy.  So much is focused on obesity, and rightly so as it leads to other medical conditions, but the social stigma that people accuse fashion magazines of saddling larger man and women with also affect the scrawnier of us.

It isn't as bad as those that are...larger than us endure.  It's more like tears of a clown.  Fat folk always want to trade places but it sucks being a bag of bones too.

Um, no.

A LENDER'S BAGEL (the tiny ones you get at a grocery freezer) are approx 200 calories. A normal NYC bagel is approx 400-500 calories. A normal NYC bagel with butter or cream cheese is along the lines of 600-800 calories. That's one of the first things you learn as a dieting Nyer :-)

bagels ARE sugary bullshiat. That is what I'm trying to say.

http://www.gilisting.com/glycemic-index/2007/02/gi-of-donut.html

Donuts have a glycemic index of about 76.

http://www.gilisting.com/glycemic-index/2007/02/gi-of-bagel-white-fr oz en-reheated.html

Bagels have a glycemic index of about 72.


So that should tell you about the relative rates of your body breaking down the energy in foods.  Bagels are made of flour, donuts are made of flour.  Donuts are a fluffier flour but fried in fat.  The fat will take longer to digest, and slow the digestion of anything else consumed with it.

If your stomach can hold 6 donuts, it can easily hold one bagel.  It certainly isn't digesting the donuts so supernaturally fast that the stomach is emptied by the time you are on your 2nd or third donut.

The reason you are hungry for more donuts is because they goddamned delicious, not because bagels have anything on them in the nutrition department (heavy fiber wheat/oat/whatever bagels notwithstanding).
