Ignoring Portion Sizes
Ignoring portion sizes.
It may be tempting to fill your entire plate with health-boosting superfoods, but portion sizes still matter. “Eating reasonable portions is what allows you to fill your diet with the variety you need to get a wide array of nutrients,” says Dr. Seti. Also, keep in mind that many nutritious foods—such as almonds, walnuts, avocados, dark chocolate and red wine—are still calorically dense. Even options like berries can add up to an excess of natural sugars if eaten with reckless abandon. While it’s great to choose superfoods, remember to always use common sense when it comes to serving sizes.
