Delicious Holiday Foods That Doesn’t Added Weights

Posted in Healthy Eating by doctorsonline on December 22, 2009

Good news to all food lovers: you can now enjoy delicious foods without gaining extra weight because it’s absolutely possible to enjoy all of your favorite beverages, apps, sides, and desserts without finding yourself in a bigger pants size at the end of the year. Here is the list of delicious foods that doesn’t added weights:

Prime Rib1. Prime Rib (for Main Dish) – Prime Rib is one of the fattiest cuts of red meat around, especially if it’s not well trimmed. A cooked 6-ounce slice can have up to 720 calories, 63 grams fat, and 27 grams saturated fat – that’s more saturated fat than you should be eating in an entire day. Enjoy a serving of leaner protein like turkey, Cornish game hens, or lean ham. Also, splurge on beef tenderloin; also known as filet mignon; a succulent, yet lean holiday treat that has about half the calories and less than a quarter of the fat of prime rib.

Pecan Pie2. Pecan Pie (for Dessert) – Pecan Pie is one of the richest, most sugary pies going. The filling is typically made with butter, sugar, corn syrup, whole eggs, and chopped pecans (believe me, any nutrition the pecans offer is far negated by the rest of the line-up). With all of these rich ingredients, it’s no surprise that one slice winds up costing you about 575 calories. And that’s before you consider the whipped cream that goes on top. Plus, all that straight sugar jacks up your blood sugar and does a number on your insides.

Eggnog3. Eggnog (for Beverage) – Eggnog is loaded with artery-clogging fat because eggnog is made with whole milk, cream, and egg yolks, all major sources of saturated fat. An 8-ounce glass clocks in at 340 calories, 11 grams saturated fat, and 21 grams sugar. You can have a small pour, or try stretching your nog by adding some skim milk. Better yet, treat yourself to a glass of wine or a mug of warm apple cider instead (both are fat-free and only 120 calories per serving).
