Im trying to lose weight. And for a change I thought I would try having a mug shot for my lunch. But im not sure if counting calories right. It says per 100g (as consumed) 66kcals. But the packet is only 45g. Does that make it around 33cals a packet?? confused

Jump on Calorie King or My Fitness Pal and see what they say.

I doubt that it would only be 33cal for the whole cup.

The "as consumed" bit would mean 100g of the made up soup is 66kcal.

How much water do you need to add?

Ah is it this Chinese noodle one?

If so the "per serving" list on the right side of nutritional info in the link shows you how much in total...155kcal per serving.
