Dr Oz did a segment on his Dr Oz Undercover show to discuss Fattening Lunch Choices. Doctor Oz went undercover as a food cart vendor in New York City. He tried to convince people to trade in a burger for fruit or to swap fries (300 calories!) for a healthier option. Only a few guys were able to be persuaded to go with healthier options. Do you know what in your lunch could be making you fat?
Dr Oz: Fattening Lunch Mistakes

Believe it or not, the whole grain chips are the problem because the portion size for that one bag is actually 2 servings. So if you eat the whole bag of chips (and who can stop at only half a bag!) you get 14 grams of fat which is even more than in french fries. Instead, pack your own chips in a little ziploc bag so that you can do your own portion control.
