Baja Fresh Steak Burrito Ultimo – B. 2 slices of Papa John’s Italian Meats Trio pizza – C. Sonic Bacon Cheeseburger – D. On the Border Chicken Fiesta Salad One 20-ounce soda has 250 calories. Soda is the biggest single source of calories in the US diet. We drink more than 49 gallons of the stuff per person per year. The chicken salad weighs in at 1140 calories! To avoid a salad fat trap: – 1. Choose mostly veggies – 2. Pick only 2 fats like cheese, dressing, avocado – Keep the protein like turkey or chicken to the size of your palm

3. How large is a serving of yogurt? – A. ¼ cup – B. ½ cup – C. ¾ cup – D. 1 cup 4. How big should your dinner plate be? – A. 9 inches – B. 10 inches – C. 12 inches – D.

The size of a deck of cards Although most yogurts come in 6 ounce containers, one serving is actually 1 cup, or 8 ounces. The trick is to watch the sugar content and the add-ons. A dinner plate should be the size of today’s salad plate. A bigger plate means bigger portions, which make it easy to overeat. Cheese is a great source of calcium but only as long as the portion sizes are kept in check.

6. Which breakfast has the most calories? – A. Ham, egg and cheese on an English muffin – B. An oat-bran muffin – C. A bowl of yogurt, berries and granola – D.

The size of a small paperback book An oat-bran muffin has 454 calories and 12 grams of fat, and can be high in trans-fats, which is bad for your heart. Most of us consume 458 calories a day from drinks. Only 10% of our calories should come from drinks and only 1/2 cup from sugary drinks like soda. The rest should be milk and water. One serving of meat is 2-3 ounces, or about the size of your palm.

9. How many times a week is it okay to eat dessert? – A. 2 – B. 4 – C. 7 – D. 10 10. How long would you have to run to burn off a 180 calorie energy bar? – A. 10 minutes – B. 17 minutes – C. 25 minutes – D. 36 minutes You can eat dessert every day as long as you keep the portion sizes in check. A few smart choices: fruits and berries, small piece of dark chocolate, a scoop (tennis-ball size) of ice cream. Energy bars are convenient when you need a boost pre- or post-workout or as a quick snack to get you through a slump, but some contain added sugar making them more like candy bars. Look for bars with at least 7-8 grams of protein and less than 180 calories.
