  • Relative to most other choices, chili is a reasonably healthy option if available
  • Emerging (not conclusive) science indicates that diet drinks can predispose to weight gain and metabolic syndrome
  • 100% fruit juices are loaded with calories/sugar
  • Loaded baked potato entrees can be loaded with calories
