Trying to be “good,” so you have a bran muffin over a doughnut every morning? You should have just had the doughnut. Most commercially sold bran muffins contain about 800 calories of pure sugar and fat, well above the calorie count of many traditional cake doughnut. While I’m definitely not advocating consumption of doughnuts for breakfast, I am pointing out that sometimes what we think is “healthy” is actually far worse for us than foods we know are NOT healthy. A simple fix: Read the nutritional information! It may stop you from making a huge diet mistake.
