Although they are loaded with antioxidants and nutrients, avocados are a high calorie snack. One single avocado is approximately over 350 calories.


Whole Milk

Yes, milk is good for your body. But did you know what one glass contains 8 grams of fat and around 150 calories! Instead, drink low fat or skim milk.




Ketchup is made from tomatoes, and although tomatoes are healthy, ketchup is one sauce to steer clear from.  According to Calorie King, 1 tablespoon of Heinz Tomato Ketchup has 20 calories, 5 grams of carbs, 4g of sugar and 160mg of sodium.

Cheese is a great source of calcium, but it is loaded with fat and calories. According to Self Nutrition Data, one cup of diced cheddar cheese has 44 grams of fat and 532 calories!

We all know fish is very healthy; however, sushi rolls are made of rice, cream cheese, avocado and just about anything else you want mixed in. When you combine these ingredients with soy sauce, you have just turned your healthy meal into a high sodium disaster.
