Even the healthiest foods shouldn’t be consumed with reckless abandon

The United States Department of Agriculture recommends that moderately active females and males ingest between 2,000 and 2,600 calories per day.

Without calories, humans would be unable to live, but many Americans easily reach the upper parameters of recommended daily calorie limits. But calories don’t tell the whole story when it comes weight gain. Whole foods like fruits and nuts often contain more calories than processed junk food, but this doesn’t mean they should be eliminated from your diet. On the contrary: Although twelve ounces of soda contains the same number of calories as a one-ounce serving of shelled peanuts, the soda offers nothing of nutritional value, while the peanuts contain essential phytonutrients and healthy fats that contribute to overall health and wellbeing.

That being said, it can be disconcerting to see that one California avocado has 50 percent more calories than a Snickers bar. But don’t freak out, just be aware that even the healthiest foods shouldn’t be consumed with reckless abandon. So sit down and brace yourself for these 13 “slimming” foods that are actually calorie bombs.
