For example, if you used 6 packets of no calorie Splenda a day in your coffee or your iced tea, you would be adding up to 30 calories a day. That would amount to 10,950 calories a year or cause a weight gain of more than 3 pounds.
If you used an 8 ounce bottle of Parkay zero calorie butter spray every 2 weeks on your vegetables or popcorn, you would add about 60 calories a day. That would amount to 21,632 calories a year or more than 6 pounds.
If you count calories, take a closer look at any food that claims to have no calorie, calorie free, or zero calories. They might just be keeping you from being skinny and debt free.
Cut the Splenda in half, and the Parkay in half and you could save 5 pounds and almost $100.00 next year.
That $100.00 could be paid on your most stressful debt.
