10 Surprinsgly Healthy Foods High In Calories

If you think you eat healthy there are some chances you are in fact not.

Do you know the healthy foods high in calories? You probably consume them, because you should, but with healthiness comes portioning, and that might be tricky.

Even the healthiest foods can make you gain weight if they are not consumed in small portions. Of course, 400 calories of fast food is way worse than 400 calories of healthy snacks, but the calories are still calories at the end of the day. They do add up.

But if you have a balanced diet and you know how much of each product you need to eat, you shouldn’t have any problems.

The number of calories, fat, and fiber presented in the article are just estimative, for you to have an idea, so make sure you also check the package, because it all depends to the size or the type of food.

So let’s see which are the surprises in our diets, the healthy foods that have many calories!

1.Nuts and Seeds

We’ve always said that nuts and seeds are amazingly healthy, but there’s a twist.

They contain fat, and fat means calories. Even though nuts and seeds are a source of proteins, fibers, antioxidants and good fats, don’t over-do it.

They are healthy if you consume them in small portions, preferably one serving a day, otherwise you might gain weight. One serving should represent the amount of nuts and seeds your palm can fit.

From almonds, pistachios, cashews, pumpkin seeds and walnuts to Brazil nuts, peanuts, and nut butters, there’s plenty to choose from, but be careful because just 1 ounce (28 grams) of these nuts can contain between 300 and 400 calories, sometimes even more.

1 ounce of almonds has:

  • 164 calories
  • 14 grams of fat
  • 3 grams of fiber
  • 6 grams of protein
