Little calories here and there add up!

Not seeing the results you want? Are you really watching what you eat, do you keep track of the foods your eating ? You might not be seeing that you can rack up calories by eating foods that you are not considering the calories and macros for. So many people are not aware that they are eating untracked calories every day !
Here are a few foods that can be killing your diet !
-Lean ground turkey vs. Extra lean ground turkey. Sure it doesn't seem like there is a big difference. Lean has 93/7 and extra lean is 99/1. The difference is almost 6 extra grams of fat per serving. That is a lot you might miss in your calculations.
-Coffee. the fancy ones. If you get a 16 oz latte from Starbucks it can have about 25-40 g carbs and 10 grams of fat ! Like what ? Talk about drinking your calories. If you are not tracking this properly you can be in deep caloric trouble.
-Apples, now they are amazing for your body with a ton of vitamins and nutrients. However, you need to be careful of the size and weight of them. You can have a smaller apple for 200 g or a larger one for 300 g they are significantly different in carbohydrates ! Keep in mind to count, weigh and measure properly.
-Salads are amazing for you. You might order a salad because its a healthier option. What you might forget is the dressing that is on it. Not to mention all that extra stuff that you get on it like dressings, cheese, crutons, and all the extras. Make sure that you are aware of what you are adding on your lettuce.
-Dressings are huge calorie busters. There is a difference between balsamic vinegar and vinaigrette. The vinegar is ZERO across the boards. If you get the vinaigrette you are eating a ton of calories,s sugars and fats.
I hope this list can help you get and stay on track !
