Have you ever wondered how you weren’t losing weight, when you were eating ‘healthy’? You may not realize it, but there are often more hidden calories in certain foods and beverages than people are aware of. As an example, consider a chicken salad, this meal is full of protein (chicken), micronutrients (salad, vegetables) and healthy fats (avocado, nuts) – so would this not be a smart healthy choice for someone looking to lose weight? It sounds like it would be, but with this salad, you may also be consuming more dressing than you would have necessarily needed. Additionally, you may be drinking a cappuccino with your salad – adding an extra 200+ calories

Some hidden calories to watch out for are:

  • Olive oils (approximately 60 calories in 1 tablespoon)
  • Alcohol (approximately 154 calories in 1 can of beer)
  • Sauces (approximately 100 calories per 100ml)
