19. Not A Lot on Your Salad
A big salad can trick you, because it seems healthy, but once you add all those toppings that you enjoy, it can be even more calories than a plate of pasta! Cheese, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, croutons… these all are packed with calories! If you’re truly looking to cut back on calories, opt for just one or two toppings and half the dressing that you’d normally use.
