Best. Diet. Tip. Ever.

Seriously.

I am a genius.

Prepare yourself.

Okay.  You know how you go on a diet and you are starving all day long?

So you think you'll  just eat a hardboiled egg?



But then you remember that a hardboiled egg has something like 70 calories...

...so you think that you'll just eat the hardboiled egg white...

...which only has something like 18 calories...

...which saves you something like (hmmm...carry the one, subtract from six...ummm...) 52 calories...

...WHICH really adds up if you want to eat more than one egg (not that I have, personally, ever eaten two or more hardboiled eggs at one sitting)

...BUT...

I know how you can save EVEN MORE CALORIES!

YessireeBob!  This is the genius part, so...

PAY ATTENTION!!!

If you just sprinkle some salt and pepper into the palm of your hand and lick it, IT TASTES EXACTLY LIKE A HARDBOILED EGG!

I kid you not.

If the thought of licking your palm makes you a bit queasy, you can use a spoon instead.

Simply sprinkle a little salt and a little pepper and lick away.



MAXIMUM TASTE!

ZERO CALORIES!

Go.

Hurry.

Try it.

I'll wait.

...

...

...

SEE!?!?!  

See what I mean?  It's totally amazing, right?   It tastes exactly like a hardboiled egg with none of the caloric implication!

And, hey, if you're on a low sodium diet, don't despair.

Just use the pepper and/or whatever non-salty thing you use in place of salt.

Yeah.


I'm cool.

It's neat to be single-handedly responsible for the thinning of America.

Yeah.

It's so cool being a genius.

...
And, of course...you're welcome.

I stick with the egg, the entire egg and a little ranch dressing, please.

summersundays-jw said...

I'm sorry....it just didn't do it for me. I really need a potato chip with my salt. I'm sure that "thin" is not in my future.

Theresa said...

You are a genious! I feel thinner just reading about this! Have a blessed and skinny week:) HUGS!

A million thanks Miss Jenny & so timely! I was in a group photo yesterday & there was only so much cropping I could do to shave off some of my out of control image. Plan to start this salt & pepper tip today - right after I come in from the gardens and wash my hands :o)

Have a good week!!

Carol said...

You 'crack' me up....I wonder if we can so this with a sugar substitute?? For those of us with a sweet tooth!

Keetha Broyles said...

I've licked salt from my hand plenty of times, though NOT in an effort to avoid calories.

I think I'll stick to my two or three boiled eggs, k?

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love the salt,not the pepper and hey dieting isn't something i'm doing right now,,,,not saying I don't NEED to diet just not doing it...eggs anyone! hugs, Linda

Sue said...

You are a leader among women, Jenny.
And men, too.

;)

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I guess I need to start boiling eggs.

Holly said...

of course I'm in the middle of a GIGANTIC rice crispy treat so I don't even know why I paused here...curiosity I guess!!! Love your idea though. When I 'm finished with my 1000 calorie treat I'll start the S & P diet!!!
Thanks for single handedly saving the country...possibly the world!

anitamombanita said...

you are hilarious...how about if we just read what you write and laugh our fool heads off for 10 minutes? That should be good for a few calories, no? :)

Ames said...

For real Jenny???? Someone give her a sugar free cookie....for real.

Psst...Mr. Jenny...you better watch Jenny, she may start licking dirt out of her hand. There's no calories in dirt either. And there is probably more minerals in dirt. Just sayin....

Naperville Now said...

we're washing our palm first, right?

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Hahaha...I know what I'm having for breakfast and late night snacks from now on. :D

Happy dieting!

Dazee Dreamer said...

I've done the licking of the salt, but have never added pepper. Now I'm going to have to try it.

Cathy said...

If you just sprinkle some salt and pepper into the palm of your hand and lick it, IT TASTES EXACTLY LIKE A HARDBOILED EGG!

Eewww. LOL! Before or after I wash my hands? ;D

H said...

Post Script: When you are gagging of thirst because of all that salt, enjoy a tall glass of something fizzy and full of sugar :p

pasqueflower said...

LOL!
So what can I sprinkle in my hand that tastes like ice cream?

Paige said...

um, maybe not.

Mumsy¸.¤ยช“˜¨ said...

I think I will stick with half boiled egg, and add some salt and pepper to it.

Fun post! I am sold but not following :-)

Judie said...

I put some salt and pepper in my hand, and looked at it for a while. Then I let the dogs lick it. I have my standards!!

Erika, Artful Rising said...

The fact that you know that your palm tastes like a hard boiled egg...is madness. The fact that I thought about testing this idea...does not say much for me.

EG CameraGirl said...

Thanks for the tip. Jenny. I'll pass it on and givre YOU all the credit.

Annesphamily said...

Jenny you are just amazing! Do you lie awake at night and think of all these great stuff?

J. Kwiatkowski-Schuler said...

I like pickled eggs. Tastier than licking one's palm, unless one has just eaten a chocolate frosted brownie on a warm day, then I may prefer the palm.

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I do believe that this is the only diet that might actually work for me. I've been counting points for 5 weeks and what would have once just fallen off, is coming off like molasses and if I eat one bite of anything over my 26 points...a pound comes back. Bah humbug...old age!

You are making me laugh out loud! laurie
