50 Holiday Foods You Shouldn't Eat
Baked potatoes are rich in vitamin C and fiber, but add in cheese, sour cream, and butter, and you've negated most of the health benefits. One medium stuffed potato has 316 calories and 8.25 grams of saturated fat. That's almost half of your suggested daily upper limit of saturated fat.
Lighten up your potatoes by using low-fat dairy products or adding low-cal veggies like onions and spinach. Or, you can roast sweet potatoes in the oven instead; each has less than half of the calories and only 2.4 grams of total fat.
