Danger Ahead: Bypass The Bowl & The Bag
We've all done it before. Sitting down in front of the television, you grab your favorite bag of cookies or chips and munch away. Before you know it, you've almost completely demolished the package of said snack in its entirety.It's mindless eating, and it gets the best of all of us. Unfortunately, binges come at a price. Consider these calorie counts. One can of Pringles potato chips is comprised of six servings. Each serving has 150 calories and 9 grams of fat. Polish off the whole can, and you'll have consumed 900 calories and 54 grams of fat in one sitting. Think your favorite cookies are much better? Think again. A package of Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies has 13 servings. Each serving has 160 calories and 8 grams of fat.
