Surprising Foods That Make You Gain
“It’s not uncommon to have a salad over 1,000 calories,” says Moore. Whether you are ordering a mix of greens at a restaurant or making one at home, the calories and fat in toppings such as cheese, croutons, and creaming dressings can really add up. We rarely measure out our toppings, especially dressing. Using creamy dressings is even worse, packing 9 grams of fat onto the salad per serving size-which is only 2 tablespoons. A simple suggestion: keep the dressing on the side, read all the ingredients, and keep your non-veggie toppings to a minimum.
