I was listening to the radio yesterday and discovered (possibly a little late in the day) there is such a thing as a Sudoku diet.
Apparently you can burn an average of 90 calories an hour simply by tackling puzzles.
Chocolate chip cookies contain 56 calories
Custard creams = 57 calories
Jammie dodgers = 85 calories
Chocolate digestives = 86 calories
So that means as long as I’m doing crosswords I can eat about one-and-two-thirds chocolate chip cookies an hour, or just one if it’s a jammie dodger, without putting on any weight at all.
And in two hours, the average time it takes me to lose patience with a Sudoku puzzle, rip it up and throw it out of the window, I can eat almost three chocolate chip cookies, and more than two jammie dodgers, with a completely clear conscience.
There are 20 jammie dodgers in a packet, the equivalent of almost 19 hours of continuous brain strain. And to eat a whole packet of choccie digestives, with about 24 biscuits in a 400g packet I would have to do nothing (not even sleep) but solve crosswords for a whole day.
So … how far would you go to eat the biscuit of your choice while maintaining an unsullied waistline?
