Top 3 calorie-loaded health foods

Whether you’re trying to gain a few kilos or shed a few pounds, your calorie-intake has a lot to do with helping you achieve your goals.

Here are some health foods with surprising amounts of calories:

Just because they are tiny, it doesn’t mean they’re harmless. A sushi roll can have up to 500 calories – not very good for your waistline.

Dried fruit
With over 100 calories per 160g serving, your calorie-intake can go up rather quickly when you have dried fruit. If you’re trying to have less calories then opt for fresh or frozen fruit. You can eat in larger amounts at fewer calories.

Low-fat peanut butter
When manufacturers reduce the fat in peanut butter, they replace it with sugars. This means your ‘low-fat’ peanut butter had the same amount of calories as the original. You might as well stick to the regular stuff because you won’t eat as much since the original is much more filling.
