1. If you eat something and nobody sees you eat it, it has no calories

2. If you drink a Diet Coke with a Mars Bar, the calories of the Mars Bar are cancelled out by the Diet Coke

3. When you eat with someone else the calories don't count as long as you don't eat more than they do

4. Food used for medicinal purposes never counts, e.g. barley sugar sweets, hot chocolate, brandy

5. Foods that are part of an entertainment package, such as popcorn and ice-cream at the cinema or crisps and chocolate eaten while watching TV or videos with other people, are not part of one's personal fuel and therefore do not have additional calories

6. If you fatten up everyone around you, you look thinner

7. Foods of the same colour may be said to have the same number of calories, e.g. mushrooms and white chocolate, or spinach and pistachio ice-cream

8. Broken biscuits contain no calories - breaking causes calorie leakage

9. Things licked off knives and teaspoons have no calories if you are in the process of preparing something.
