    gotcha


    I figured it wouldn't kill me to eat it, but yeah I could kind've tell that if im trying to lose weight it isn't that best idea. I already ate it heh so i'll just keep my pre training snack and my dinner light and train extra hard tonight.


    Thanks

    It's fine.

    Just factor the calories into your overall macro for the day and you're good.

    It's easy to eat too much. Some people try to eat healthy by eating better food but they forget that amounts also matter a lot. My father ate pasta with a BUNCH of olive oil when he learned that olive oil was good.

    Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels. Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round. I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theatre of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

    Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

    When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to:

    M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc. Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A.

    along with a 3x5 card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes."

    This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this "grant money." I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion. There can be only one.
