This is a great trick to perform for 2 spectators. Requires minor prep, but is a pretty amazing looking trick and fools every time.
First, there’s no such thing as negative calorie foods.
In my usual web searches, I found the following blog post:
Although there is no such thing as a food that takes more calories to eat than it contains, there are foods that do take enough calories that it reduces the amount of calories your taking in. Below is the list of those foods:
- Beet Root
- Hot Chilies
- Garden cress
- Green Beans
The good news is that there are number of things on there that I not only like, but can eat without having to make a meal (particularly fruits). But I could mix and match a few for a basic salad or snack, and reduce my calorie intake for snacks. I’ve already started doing that with the previously mentioned fruits. For somethings that I might generally eat plain (blueberries/rasberries for example), I could add splenda, still keeping the calorie intake down. Or combine that with a high fiber cereal (instead of buying the cereals with the dried fruits, although those are pretty good)..
Good news. As little as I’ve been updating my site with this initial launch (apologies, I promise to get better), I now have a higher than 1,000,000 Alexa rank as of today. I’m actually 977,878. I know, it’s still ridiculously high compared to Google (which has an Alexa rank of 1), but I’ll get closer with time. Thanks to all of you for reading and viewing and hopefully bookmarking.
Technically, this is a re-launch, as I’ve made a couple of previous attempts to launch this blog/site. But this is it, “the one”, the actual launch that will take.
So welcome to those that have joined in. If I’ve left up the previous posts, feel free to view the videos contained in them. As I go through the process of re-creating the videos to make them more consistent, add titles and such, I’ll be re-posting with an actual description, etc. Additionally, I’ll also be posting explanations for download in the store part of the site.
For now, bookmark the site, link me to all your favorite bookmarking sites, check out the links, and enjoy. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll get updates whenever I post.
