    I forgot that pasta weight on the box is pre-cooked weight... not weight with water :hsugh:

    I've been eating 2 servings of 85g of pasta... when i figured out tonight that post cooked i should be eatin 210. Moral of the story is that im stupid.

    We've all done it :rofl: don't worry, now you know.

    I've messed up a few times buying regular root beer instead of diet and not realizing for three or four days :noes: they taste identical.

    Oh Jesus don't even remind me how many times I've done that. :wtc:


    Friends and I rented a house at the beach and I bought drinks. We were in a hurry and I saw Snapple and Stewarts Root Beer on sale so I grabbed a bunch of cases. For some reason I didn't even think about checking to see if they were diet. I don't drink anything that's not diet at all.

    So the whole week is going by and I'm really NOT paying attention to anything but enjoying myself, so I didn't even look at the labels for some reason. I must have had a dozen root beers and 8 Snapples.


    I go to take out the garbage and almost had a heart attack when I saw what I had done. Supercardio time when I got home.

    Fucking diet drinks are tasting so much like the original I can't tell! :noes:

    I generally lol @ people who drink regular soda in general. It's just not worth it. Terrible for the teeth, crazy sugar rush then crash, and it leads to teh fatty.

    I drink diet soda whether I'm actively dieting or not- regular soda isn't worth it :dunno: non-satiating and I'd rather get my calories elsewhere.

    Diet IBC Root Beer actually tasted better than the regular.

    But yeah, as for like iced tea mix, koolaid, softdrinks.. I don't touch them. Booze is my only Achillies Heal and I've been cutting that back severely lately.

    yea soda is bad mmkay, and it dehydrates you so the redeeming qualities are so ephemeral.

    but i keep hearing that soda/caffeine is good for cutters/dieters

    No, soda does not dehydrate you. Any dehydration from the small amount of caffeine in it is offset by the liquid.

    :confused: the only thing different about precooked pasta vs raw is all the calorie free H2o it's absorbed... are you cooking your pasta in olive oil or something? :noes:

    Nope, carbonation goes away pretty quickly once it's exposed to air/your GI tract :wavey: Hence the soda burps.
