Now we’re not saying you should start substituting your crudities for a Chupa Chup, but you just that you might want to moderate your portion size.

  • Green juice is the A list drink du jour, but can contain as many as 6 teaspoons of sugar. Don’t be tempted to supersize your cup.
  •  Nuts are loaded with fats. Good ones. But still fats. A bag from Starbucks has a whopping 401 calories. Make like Liz Hurley and have 6 at a time.
  •  Hummus. Healthy yes. But don’t consume the whole tub. There are 70 calories in just two tablespoons.
  •  A small bowl of grapes has 15 grams of sugar. Try freezing them to ensure you take more time eating your snack.
  •  Dried fruit is naturally high in sugar and calories and some manufacturers add extra sweet stuff to take away tartness. Read the back of the packet carefully.
