preventing overeating

I am afraid I don't understand that phrase....especially when it is applied to peanuts in the shell.

The disassembly required to extract the peanuts
from the shell slows down the eating process
so that the brain catches up with the stomach
in time.

In other words, you can't gorge yourself with
handfuls of peanuts so fast.<g>

I have gone into many a baseball game, bought the humongous bag of peanuts that the vendors outside the ballpark sell for a couple of dollars, and spent the entire game (or doubleheader) eating peanuts, so many that it became difficult to stand for the seventh inning stretch.

Thank god peanuts are a vegetable or plant product or some such thing. <g>

Now do the math as to how many MORE peanuts
you would have consumed had they been
unshelled. The number is staggering.<g>

I have a question.

Why do those charts always talk about an ounce of food?

Who eats an ounce of anything?

The listings should be in one pound and five pound increments.

For example:

Peanuts

One lb. 2,560 calories
5 lbs. 12,800 calories

M&M's

One lb. 2,272 calories
5 lbs. 11,360 calories

That would be more directly useful to everyday living, if you ask me.

You're absolutely correct.

I can understand why serving sizes
are so small on pre-packaged food
(since they don't want to scare the
consumer as to how fattening the
food really is when eaten in normal
proportions.)

However, calorie charts are designed
for the opposite purpose---to scare you
into NOT eating so much.

I'm switching to dehydrated lentil soup for snacks from now on.

I just hope they don't cause too much gastric upset....

lentils can do that, you know....that's why I've avoided them for so long.
