Does anyone know if there any calories in mosquitos ????
Dr Nic Twinks
Yes, approx 370. And 12.9 grams of saturated fat. Why, have you eaten one? Quick, spit it out!
Oh no !!! I've eaten loads !! It's bad enough to know they are ugly but fattening as well - it's just too much. How can I avoid them when running?: If they don't go in my mouth, they seem to sneak up my nose!!
Dr Nic Twinks
If they go up your nose, then the calories and fat content are in fact reversed, thus providing you with a handy slimming device. Aim to inhale 2 per day and you will lose about 2 pounds a week.
On a serious note - yuk! They're full of blood. Oo-eeee, minging.
bumble bees are much better and fattier - and don't need so many. bit hairy on the way down though
Waaah!! I guess bees could get busy making honey once they reach their destination and they do say honey is good for energy. Bit drastic though! Think I'll stick to getting mine in Asda!!
