# The Monster I feed.

### Tuesday, June 11, 2019

You know those packages of cookies in the stores,

You see the big 170 calories on it,

And you think "Oh Wow! I can eat this whole package! It's only 170 calories." Or ... "I can have this package of cookies instead of mindlessly eating from a big package." Or .... "It's just a package of cookies. It won't ruin my progress."

Then you see ....

Lets do some math ....

This package has only 11 cookies in it. So that's 2.75 servings. Times 170 calories. Equals 467.5 calories per package.

467 calories for a package of cookies. Not to terribly bad. There are worse things out there.

Now lets say you have one everyday, because you're a cookie monster and monsters have to be fed. ... 467.5 x 7 = 3272.5

.... That's a pound of fat!

Lets say you eat one a day for a year ....
327.5 x 52 = 170,170

170170 divided by 3500 equals 48.62

If I was to continue to feed my monster a package of these cookie, every day for a year, I would gain 48.62 pounds.

..........
..........

I think it's time for me to stop feeding my monster.
What monster are you feeding?

Yikes! A lot of calories. Seriously, I glazed over at the math because it's totally not my subject, but I get what you're saying. My monster happens to come with buttercream (as in cake) and it's a daily struggle. Hang in there!
