Diet eating food

If you finish off a pack of ritz crackers in one sitting you’ll have consumed:

  • 490 calories
  • 14 grams of fat
  • 1120 mg sodium
  • 77 grams of carbohydrates
  • 7 grams of protein
  • 105 mg potassium

That doesn’t allow for anything you might put on your ritz crackers. I generally don’t buy ritz crackers or any kind of crackers because I find it impossible to just have a serving or two. Unfortunately I don’t live alone and against my requests not to have certain foods brought into the house, things I expressly forbid to be brought into the house get brought in anyway. Marriage can be so wonderful (sarcasm)

I consumed about 3 or 4 servings of Ritz crackers today, adding (assuming 4 servings) 280 unnecessary calories, 8 unnecessary grams of fat and 45 unnecessary grams of carbohydrates to my food intake for the day. That gets added to the fat-free 100 calorie tapioca pudding, and the 60 calorie rice pudding that I ate not realizing it contained cholesterol.

I might have picked at other things without paying attention so I’m going to estimate my calorie intake so far at 600 which means I’ve gone over my daily allowance of 500 and can’t eat anything else for the day.

Let me try to remember exactly what I’ve eaten today:

  • Fat free Tapioca pudding: 100 calories
  • Rice Pudding: 60 calories
  • Ritz crackers (4 servings): 280 calories
  • 1/4 cup cheerios: 35 calories
  • A cup of sugar sweetened tea: 60 calories

Total calories: 535

As for fat intake:

  • Fat free Tapioca pudding: 0 grams of fat
  • Rice Pudding: 2 grams of fat
  • Ritz crackers (4 servings): 8 grams of fat
  • 1/4 cup cheerios: 0.5 grams of fat
  • A cup of sugar sweetened tea: 0 grams of fat

Total fat: 10.5

Now, had I not consumed the ritz crackers I’d have 280 calories to work with later; and of course had the hubby not bought the ritz crackers I wouldn’t have had them to eat. If it was left to the hubby I’d be critically obese and sitting around at home all day eating out of depression over being critically obese while he hangs out at the mall daily ogling all the fine young things with their hot fit bodies. I must have more control and ability to resist eating things I know I shouldn’t eat regardless if they are accessible or not.
