Hidden calories you never knew about

  • Sperm

Well most google results show anything ranging from 5-25 calories, however, an average 3.4ml serving (hahaha man!) contains less than 1 calorie so there you go ladies and gents, the choice is still yours. Unless of course, you're going out with 6ft 4 yeti-type fella with balls bigger than king kong.

  • Chewing gum

If it’s the sugar-free stuff, you’re looking at 2-5 calories per tablet/stick. Where if you’re still old school and you love the Atomic Apple Hubba Bubba seshy stuff, it’s going to cost you a shocking 25 calories!!

Now rack up how many you chomp a day, especially you lot who have lifting breath and go through packets a day, it all adds up.

  • Medicine

Yeah I know, but what do you think it's made of? Fresh air? A spoon of Calpol is gonna set you back 25 calories (p.s can anyone remember having the amazing purple stuff as a kid, then when you got to 12 you had to put up with the liftin orange stuff - there was always that one wrong’n who preferred it more as well).

Well if that shocked you... Night Nurse will cost you nearly 3 times that, at 72 calories. And let’s be honest who has a recommended scoop, so you’re looking at a good 100 cals just for a tidy kip.

FYI - last time we posted this info someone had an absolute meltdown about having to track their medicine... calling us ridiculous.

OKAY SORRY LET'S PRETEND THESE CALORIES DON'T COUNT TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER.

  • Teas, Coffee, Sugar and Milk

I wasn’t going to put this in, but you just have a read of the comments below about how many beanbags aren’t counting this stuff. So...

Sugar 1 tsp - 16 calories

Skimmed Milk - 38 calories (like witches watta)

Semi-Skimmed 50 calories (worth the extra 12)

Whole Milk - 66 calories (living the dream)

Now, how many cheeky cuppas do you have a day? Is it a really milky tea/coffee at 150ml . That’s right your hammering the calories. Get them counted! And let me know below if you’ve been a tinker and not been counting these.

  • Cooking Options

Obviously, you need to count your oils, but say you’ve got some mushrooms ... 100g would cost you like 7 calories. Well hoy the little mushies in the deep fat fryer and you’re now talking 110 calories. So be very aware of your oils and cooking options.

  • Lip Balm, Chap Stick , Lip stick

Okay it’s a bit OTT this one, but Burt Bees Lip Balm is “20 calories per application” but I mean is this for the silly sallys who lick their lips after? I don't know.

To summarise, some of the above is a bit of an overkill... the point I'm getting at is, if you pay close attention to finer details, you may discover you're pissing away 250 calories a day... which could be half a pound of fat a week, difference!

Be open to the possibility your tracking can always be better.
