Popular "diet foods" called fattening

A magazine article that quotes "diet doctors." nutrition professors and health psychologists claims that many foods consumed by dieters can make them fat. Among those foods are hummus, nuts, grapes and kale...


The argument here is that these foods have calories, and if people eat too much of them they will gain weight. Well... that is true of ALL foods, and particularly foods that provide a balance of nutrients (i.e., not just vitamins or fiber). And since we have to eat a variety of foods to get the nutrients we need, it is absurd to eliminate any one food from the diet, provided it is not pure junk. Dieting should be about eating mostly healthy foods in controlled portion sizes that do not exceed your caloric needs. It is simple math. Articles professing anything else are nonfactual, irresponsible and misleading.
