Count it as .....



Counting Calories and knowing how many calories you are consuming is quite easy when it comes to most packaged items. Read the label and you have your answer.  Fresh Fruits and Vegetables are more of a challenge to accurately know how many calories you really are consuming.  So I compiled this list of common Fruits and the amount of calories they each have.  Be careful about portion sizes.  For example....  Many apples at the grocery store are easily 2x the size of a serving of an apple.... so in that case if you eat the whole apple be sure to double the calories.  

FRUITS:
Apple (1 medium)  = ~75 calories 
Avocado (1/2) = ~145 calories
Apricot (1 med- 35 grams) = ~20 calories
Banana (medium; 7-8 inches) = ~100 calories
Blackberries (1 cup) = ~60 calories
Blueberries (1 cup) = ~80 calories
Cantaloupe (1/4 of medium melon) = ~50 calories
Grapefruit (1/2) = ~40 calories
Grapes (1 cup) = ~100 calories 
Kiwi (1 medium) = ~45 calories
Mango (1/2) = ~75 calories
Orange (1 medium) = ~70 calories 
Peaches (1 medium) = ~45 calories 
Pears (1 medium) = ~100 calories 
Pineapple (1 cup) = ~70 calories 
Plums (1 medium) = ~35 calories 
Pomegranate seeds (2 Tablespoons) = ~20 calories
Raspberries (1 cup) = ~70 calories
Strawberries (1 cup) = ~100 calories
Watermelon (1 cup) = ~45 calories

Vegetable Calories to come.
