How to Cheat Without Wrecking Your Diet
BreakfastPancakes vs. French Toast
Best Bet: Pancakes
Enjoy Sunday brunch guilt-free: Three pancakes have 259 calories compared with 447 in three slices of French toast. Top either with a tablespoon of butter and a quarter cup of syrup and you add 310 calories. Try thawed frozen unsweetened fruit instead; it has a syrupy consistency but just 19 calories in a quarter cup.
Best Bet: Doughnut
Standing in Dunkin' Donuts trying to decide? Let a 120-calorie difference make up your mind. The danish has 330 calories and 20 grams of fat; the jelly doughnut has 210 and 8 grams.
