        Only skimmed through the article so forgive me if i missed it. Here you go a recipe for a not calorie free, but it only contains calories that are an excess from your protein and carton egg whites. Its called a protein brownie, but more like a pudding sorta ordeal. Search "yuckylavado" on YouTube. He represents LoA A.K.A "legends of aesthetics". He discovered a recipe that only requires a protein powder of your choice, can of your preferred diet soda, egg whites, and a microwave. Quick, simple, minimal ingredients and its actually pretty decent. Enjoy!
