    Good ol chicken breast. If cooked with the right ingredients, you can have a heaping amount for not a lot of calories.

    Chicken breast and buffalo sauce. Could eat that 3-4 times a week. Need to find bigger bottles of sauce though.

    Heinz gravy. 1/4 cup for 20 kcal. I used to use it so sparingly.. now I just pour it on!

    In Canada Wheatbix is cold cereal just like a giant shredded wheat.

    I think most in the UK also have it cold.

    I second mushrooms - especially king oysters, they are HEAVEN when grilled with lemon, olive and garlic and served with parsley.
    Don't know if it has been said, but turkey ham would be the second (the traditional / homemade one, not the hyperinjected one in supermarkets). The cals (like 90-95/100g) are almost entirely from protein.

    Bumping this thread cuz it's awesome.

    Bacon for the eleventh time!
    Some cheeses are amazingly low calories, only now do I realize how important reading the label is
    Cans of tuna. Or basically all kinds of stuff that live in the sea
    Baked beans, a little bit goes a (really) long way

    Took a look in the fridge. Right now I've got parmesan at 392 calories per 100g, and low fat cheddar at around 286 per 100g. Both have more protein than fat, so win!

    don't bite my head off but SUGAR. a teaspoon is only 15 calories. very satisfying tastewise and psychologically if you sprinkle some on fruit/whatever else you want or in your hot beverage of choice. makes you realize how much sugar is packed into so many of our foods... because a little can go a long way.

    Actually, I completely agree... considering sugar is "the bad guy" simply adding a teaspoon or two of sugar to your wheatbix is actually fine...

    The war should be on "Hidden Sugar"..

    What's Wheatbix?

    It's a Brit/Aus Hot breakfast cereal. I believe it's similar to Farina or Cream of wheat.

    Although my Google fu suggests that it's a cold cereal more like the old school giant Kellogg's shredded wheat bricks.

    Interesting. Never seen it down in the Midwest.

    Actually, it is never served hot generally served by putting two in a bowl and pouring some cold milk over them... Some people like to put berries on top, but I think thats just the people in the advertisements :)
    It is essentially wheat compressed to a brick shape, you pour milk over it... Very high in fibre, iron, folate and stuff. Low in calories, high in GI...
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weet-Bix

    When you pour milk over the wheatbix it goes soggy over time, some people like them crunchy, some soggy, so milk placement and how quickly you eat it controls that... :)

    Weet-bix are normally considered medium GI. And they must always be eaten soggy :)

    Yeah I'm impressed with parmesan too! 1tbsp of the grated stuff goes so far for so little! Low fat feta is also good.

    Regular whole fat ricotta. The calories are pretty tame for a regular cheese. I was surprised I was able to eat a little over 100 grams of it for less than 200 calories.

    Chili. Especially true if I make it at home, but even most restaurants aren't bad at all. When I think of all the 1000 calorie salad bombs I ate through my 20s when I was trying to make low-cal choices, and instead I could have been having a delicious hearty bowl of chili for half that...

    I love grated Pecorino Romano, a tablespoon or 2 really flavors up veggies or a salad for not a lot of calories.

    With all the whipped cream comments, I do have to say that the store bought stuff (in the spray can) is 15 calories for 5g, and it's a TINY amount. So I'm not sure where all the 'whipped cream is so low calorie' comments are coming from. I need 50ish calories of the stuff to be satisfied.

    The site says 130 calories. Still seems odd. They must use tiny chickens.
