Imagine two companies who offer a frozen dinner. Same price, same dish, very similar ingredients and nutritional value, presumably similar quality, but one has 30% fewer calories than the other. You go for...
It depends what the calories are. Protein? I'll take em. All fat? No thanks.
More calories will fill me up better, as well as fuel my body better.
I need my calories.
Depends what I'm doing after. I I'm about to be energetic, then more calories. If not, less.
Anytime they take out calories or fat... They add in chemical garbage to make up for the flavor...
Better off with the Real thing than poison chemicals
I'm not sure you can actually get same nutrition value with such a caloric difference. % of fat is going to vary greatly.
You didn't stipulate same taste. I'd try the low calorie version, but my bet is I'd switch back to the good one next time.
Certainly I take the dinner with fewer calories.
I use calories like crazy, I need as many as I can get.
I go for more Calories for the sake of gaining weight.
I just pick out the dinner, fuck the writing
In reality, whichever packaging catches my eye first. When picking food, I don't normally look too deeply at calories
Lower calorie option assuming it doesn't have less healthy ingredients, higher salt, higher sugar, etc..
It is very rare to find a leaner substitution that doesn't also have a bunch of BS added so that it can better pretend to be that which it's not. It can be done, but it's difficult.
Totally pragmatic here. I would no more choose lean than less efficient fuel at a gas station. I save money by eating less. Calories are fuel, so biggest bang for the buck IF everything else is equal.
I think it's hilarious how fast food eateries like Burger King and Subway try to point out their items are leaner. Oh sure, like a gas station saying if you get 35 mpg elsewhere, trust us, you'll get 25 for the same low price, mwahaha :)
I need all the calories I can get!
lol, im the same way
