I remember when I studied Thermodynamics in college that if you ate a 1,000 calorie meal (food calories are really 1,000 'real' calories) and you wanted to neutralize the effect, all you had to do was eat 17 lbs. of ice.

I remember thinking, man, our body is really good at producing energy from food.

Someone can doublecheck my math...it was a while ago, but I'm sure I'm remembering correctly.

Eat whatever you want, and then a ton of ice afterwards!
