My kids weighed their Halloween bags this morning. They each received about 5 lbs. in candy.
If I were to eat all 5 lbs. of that candy I would somehow fall into a deep deep coma and gain 25 lbs.
If my children eat all 5 lbs. of that candy (and believe me, they will) they will be so hyper that they'll run around and bounce up and down and sing silly songs constantly and will ultimately end up losing 3 lbs.
Yet another blow to my dieting psyche.
