Keeping to a holistic health care friendly diet can be challenging. However what if your holistic diet choices were secretly sabotaging your efforts? Knowing portion sizes and how many calories your holistic friendly foods contain are just as important. For example could you tell the different between a 100 calorie serving of chicken vs a 200 calorie serving? Or can you tell how many calories are in a handful of healthy raw almonds? How about how many calories are in your avocado? Again just because they are holistically nutritious, does not mean they lack calories.
