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.

Turkey Bacon

Don’t assume turkey bacon is better than full-fat pork bacon. Check the nutrition facts and you’ll see that while ultra-lean versions contain 0g of saturated fat, some varieties can contain as much or even more fat and sodium as center-cut pork bacon. A half-cup of turkey bacon pieces has 157 calories and 11.5g of fat. Choose a half-cup of ham pieces and save 40 calories and 5.5g of fat, and still get that smoky flavor without the fat.
