Is there ANY food that you can eat tons of without really counting it bc it doesn't matter? Besides lettuce, I guess...

You can pop a number of grape tomatoes without it adding up too much

I guess you could say grapes. You can only eat so many and a cup is only like 100 calories...

I consider all non starchy vegetables pretty much "magic"- a universe of variety and incredible nutrition for a handful of calories. Nobody gets fat from eating too many carrots- they just turn yellow

Whenever I've overeaten such super-low calorie foods, I've experienced dire (and definitely un-magical) consequences - like diarrhea and wish-for-death stomach cramps.

I can't say that there is anything that "doesn't matter"...everything is a choice and every choice has it's impact. That said, if you're looking for things that are less likely to mess up your plans:

Raw cauliflower/broccoli are fantastic for you, packed with all sorts of good things, and require lots of chewing.

Also, air-popped popcorn can be a good snacky food...

I guess these aren't actual foods, but I don't really count black tea, diet soda, black coffee, or gum toward my calories.

Maybe cucumbers? pickles?

a bag of shiratake noodles only has 20 calories if you need to feel like you are eating pasta.

But i would have to go with the air popped popcorn as well

There is no magic food, but there is something that increases your energy, decreases cravings, improves your overall fitness, helps dispel a bad mood, and boosts your metabolism. It only takes about half an hour to prepare, but you need to be a part of the process the whole time.

It's a walk, and every day I kick myself for looking for a "magic bullet" for improved health, yet never got off my *** and took advantage of one of the best ways people have of being healthier.

Aside from walking to keep cravings at bay, most non-starchy vegetables are pretty low-impact, calorically speaking. Leafy greens are good for taking up space. Air-popped popcorn's also a good choice.
