Free pie guilt
The sandwhich van which does the rounds between the various office blocks here on the docks in Preston has just been. Usually I catch him before midday but I way eyes down working and didn't hear his van jingle (like an ice cream van for grown-ups), so I caught him on his last stop of the day. As he sometimes does when he's heading home and has surplus stock, he offered me his last meat pie for free (as a loyal customer etc.), but only after I'd brought a prawn salad roll. Now I've eaten both and feel guilty
Should I feel bad, or should I just keep the little voice in my head which keeps repeating 'Free meat pie...Yippee!', happy and live with it?

Free food (or stolen from someone else's plate) doesn't count. No guilt or calories attached.

if you didnt pay for it, its healthy

No such thing as a free pie. The price you pay is eternal guilt. The only way out of this is to buy two pies next time. I call this a win-win.

Sorry, but a diet in which you're hungry is doomed to fail. See the 'wight loss' thread elsewhere.

Free food is just that - free of cost, free of guilt and free of calories

I have to agree there. I've been on phase 2 of as diet for 3 weeks. I have a job to eat all my 1500 calories now I am eating the right stuff.

Corned Beef, I wouldn't entertain it. Too much fat
Cheese... in moderation. Hard cheese almost entirely fat.
Try mushrooms 100g is 18 calories. As opposed to C Beef at 215. There are many other foods out there that fill you up for few calories.

Prawn salad roll
Jeez, you'll have had to have drunk at least 4 cans of Boddingtons with your free pie to man back up after that experience!

There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

As many have said, free food contains no calories. It's like when you get a biscuit tin, if you pick the broken biscuits then that's okay when you're on a diet as the calories have all fallen out.

I learned that from the female members of our IT staff, they are often trying new diets and that.
