Foods to avoid: Alfredo sauce

It’s 2/3 fat calories; see

  • 250 cal/cup; 150 cal fat

Compare to marinara sauce:

  • 150 cal/cup; 60 cal fat

Plus, marinara sauce has olive oil; alfredo has less healthy fats.  High-fat meals may also poison the pancreas, keeping it from producing appropriate amounts of insulin, possibly leading to high blood sugar and diabetes. Olive oil is less likely to do this than animal fats.
