Dried Fruit

But it's fruit! How can fruit be unhealthy?

Most prepackaged fruit has so much added sugar that it makes more sense to call it candy. Plus, dried fruit has much less volume than fresh fruit, making it easier to eat more than your fair share without feeling full. That might not sound bad — until you check out the calorie content. One serving isn't bad. A whole bag? Yikes.

Simple solution? Stick to the fresh stuff.
