Calorie Question - Fresh Spring Rolls

Postby GoddessInside » Sat Jun 06, 2009 9:55 pm

Hey guys,

As you may or may not be aware, I am on the optifast intensive program, three shakes per day, 2 cups of greens and diet jelly where needed. Now every Wednesday ( weigh in ) I am allowing myself a congrats meal which will usually consist of me eating lunch. I will only do this on the weeks that I lose weight. Like a little reward to keep me going.

So I work in Sydneys Little Vietnam and have come to loooooooooove fresh spring rolls. I usually get the ones with pork and prawns. Is anyone able to help me with how to work out the calories in these or do you know ... are they a healthy option ? I mean I know that the fried spring rolls are a definite no go ... But how bout the fresh ones with rice paper ?

Your help is greatly appreciated, thanking you all in advance :)

According to calorie king the average roll has 80-100 calories and and about 2 grams of fat :)
Not a bad treat at all!

I dont know if you count your carbs or not, but i know that the rice paper has a substantial amount of carbs in them...just something to consider I know everyone worries about different nutrients

Im not counting anything as I am on the optifast 3 shakes per day :) Though when I do start counting and keeping track, I will most certainly keep that in mind ! Thank you :)

Rice Paper Rolls,

I love these rolls too but be aware although they have few calories (ref CK) they contain carbs from rice which are simple sugars.

In simple terms, the body produces the hormone Insulin to reduce the spike in Blood Sugar Levels caused by the bodys natural response to an ingested sugar (carb). In turn the body then stops burning its stored fat as an energy source. Why? Once insulin is released it inhibits your fat burning hormone called HSL (hormone sensitive lipase). This hormone is responsible for releasing fat into the bloodstream to be utilised as a fuel. When the body cannot use stored fat because of the insulin in the bloodstream it will convert amino acids (from muscle). Not what you want to do unless you want Tuck Shop arms.

There is more to losing fat than meets the eye!. Just becuase it is low calorie does not mean it is good for losing weight!

I was going to hold back on this post but I thought there would be a few who might find it interesting.

Punishment then Reward

This is a classic approach to dieting. "If I lose weight or if I exercise" I then should be able to reward myself with a chocolate or the like. Sure reward yourself but not with food. Buy something you can look at each day that reminds you of the journey you are taking. Don't reward your hard work with food that gives a moment of pleasure yet will take you a step back in your progress. Try to think of eating right and exercising as a good thing. The reward is you looking good and being healthy. That's the best reward.
