Did you know?

1 tablespoon of oil (15mls) has the same number of kilojoules as each of the following

9 carrots
1 1/3 slices of soy and linseed bread
2 pottles of lite fruit yoghurt
2 oranges
1 1/2 Tim Tam biscuits
16 – 20 full stalks of celery

Oil is a good example of an energy dense food (lots of kilojoules per gram) that is easy to overconsume. Being heavy handed with it can bump up your kilojoule intake without really realising it.  A good weight management tip is to keep oil intake low so you have a few kilojoule credits for food or drink that adds enjoyment and satisfaction to your life.  For me I am thinking chocolate!
