What is wrong with too many calories? If you consistently consume more calories than your body needs to maintain your current weight, guess what is going to happen? That’s right, you will start gaining weight. Now, I am not saying you need to be obsessed with counting calories every time you eat – some people do that, but I am totally against it – I do think, however, that you need to be aware of your average, daily calorie consumption.
Problem is, sometimes it is very difficult to correctly estimate a number of calories in a given dish. For example, how many calories are in a chicken burrito made with organic ingredients? It sounds healthy, right? What can possibly be wrong with a chicken burrito made with organic ingredients?
Well, if you get your organic chicken burrito from Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill, you get 1,310 calories, 51 grams of fat and 142 grams of carbohydrates. Ouch! The moral of the story: Be careful with healthy-sounding foods. Something can be organic and natural, and high in calories.
