If you’re trying to lose a few and unearth your abs from hiding, you eat a salad. It’s just what you do.

But if you aren’t careful, that salad could end up making you even fatter.

OK, well hopefully you aren’t eating all of your salads from the drive-thru, but you get the point. What’s in your salad can more than negate that extra serving of veggies on your plate and pile on the pounds.
