15 Bites and Nibbles That Keep You From Losing Weight

Bites and Nibbles That Keep You From Losing Weight

If you are a chronic nibbler, you may be eating more calories than you realize. A healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner can easily be undone by a bite here and a nibble there. It is easy to convince yourself that those bites don’t count, but the calories quickly add up. Below is a list of foods that are commonly nibbled when cooking at home, at the office, and at social gatherings.

  • One fried chicken wing: 150
  • One tablespoon of cookie dough: 120
  • One egg roll: 90-150
  • One-inch cube of cheddar cheese: 110
  • One tablespoon of peanut butter: 95
  • One pig in a blanket: 94
  • Five Almond M&Ms: 85
  • Two pieces of strawberry licorice: 80
  • One tablespoon of icing: 70
  • One tablespoon peanuts: 50
  • Ten jelly beans: 40
  • One cocktail meatball: 35
  • One pizza roll: 35
  • One tortilla chip with queso: 31
  • One potato chip with onion dip: 18

Be mindful of every bite and be sure to add each one to your food diary. If you can’t overcome the need to nibble, substitute lower calorie options that are also nutritious, such as a few grapes or berries.
