7 Ways Your Salad is Making You Fat

Ditching these toppings will cut major calories and bad fat. Here is how to slim it down.

Dried Fruit

Bits of fruit can add plenty of tang and crunch to your salad, but choose your fruit wisely. Dried cranberries for example seem healthy, but guess again. A serving of dried, sugar-sweetened cranberries is merely one-third of a cup, and with that you get 130 calories and over 30g of carbohydrates (the equivalent of 2 slices of white bread)! A smarter way to go: chop up a whole medium-size green apple for bursts of sweet, fruity flavor and only 80 calories.
