    Magic Pill: Zero Calorie foods

    This is kind of ridiculous, but imagine that there were a pill that you could take that would alter the makeup of food that you consumed so that calories were removed. In fact, every unhealthy component of the food completely vanishes, allowing you to eat as much of it as you want. Got it? OK.

    This pill can ONLY be applied to a food item that you pre-determine. Each person gets to pick his/her own magic pills, but you only get 5. So the question is, what FIVE magic pills would you take?

    Rule #1 : You can't say sugar and fat. That is cheating. It has to be a food item that is in it's finished state. The point of this exercise is NOT for you to beat the system; it's to get you to list those 5 foods you would most like to eat without having to consider calories. Examples are Ranch Dressing, Fettucini Alfredo, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Bacon, etc.

    Rule #2 : Your 5 pills can apply to solid foods, liquids, and everything in between. In short, anything that you consume.


    I will start:

    1) Tator Tots
    2) Donuts
    3) Buttermilk Biscuits
    4) Coca Cola
    5) Beer

    General Tso's chicken, of course.

    Oh, and the custard-filled chocolate-iced Krispy Kreme donuts.

    Three orders of the General followed by two donuts, thank you.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
