“Calories (noun)—Tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes tighter”

“Calories (noun) - Tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night.” is a jocular definition that has been printed on many images. ”What is a calorie? Calories are the little devils that get into your wardrobe at night and sew your clothes tighter” was cited in print in 2008.

Grouchy Rabbit published a definition in June 2011:

“Calories (noun) - Tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night.”

“Calories are tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night”. The caption greets you at Let’s Eat Meat, a newly-opened restaurant at NSR Road, Sai Baba Colony. And, they could not be more right. If you are headed to this place, make sure that you diet for at least a few days.
