Great post from @cartergood
on calorie comparison between an allegedly healthy cookie and commercial brand cookie.
: "When I was first losing weight, I would eat one of these Lenny & Larry peanut butter cookies just about every single day! My thinking was that it HAD to have been a better weight loss choice than a couple of real cookies.... right?
Of course, that was before I started educating myself about calories and portion sizes. In fact, it took 3 months of eating these things everyday to realize the "200 calories" I saw on the package label was for one of TWO total servings...
(Sidenote: what kind of food marketing monster would split ONE cookie into TWO servings? Like, why would you be that evil? 🤷♂️...)
Yes, the Complete Cookie has a lot more protein, but if you're considering a 400-calorie cookie with 16g of protein a "high-protein snack", then there no hope for you... 😉
If I were losing weight, I'd rather curb my sweet tooth with 2-4 regular Chips Ahoy cookies and save the extra 200 calories for more filling veggies and lean protein sources.
