Solero Vs Magnum
If you’re trying to lose weight, swapping your sweet treat can help.
Both of these salads have cheese, croutons, avocado and dressing. However, the one on the left uses lower kcal cheeses and a home made dressing, along with toast for croutons.

Watch out for this when you are checking packaging for calorie information!
You can still have toast with your butter and the calorie count be reasonable. Just don’t slather it on!
Belvita Vs McVities
These two biscuits have practically the same calories and macros. The digestives are slightly higher in protein and lower in sugar. However, Belvita biscuits have a few extra micro-nutrients.
These are all the same size yet vary hugely in calorie count. If your goal is weight loss, watch what you’re throwing into your smoothies!
