The more I think about it, the more I think nutrition is the hardest part.

Some foods are deceptively nutritionally dense, while others are not. Examples would be nuts (dense) and spinach (not dense).

The idea that 1/3 cup of mixed nuts or a tablespoon of olive oil have more calories than a large bag of spinach can be really hard to grasp.

I chuckle when I co-worker says, "Oh, have one cookie. It's only ONE." and I say, yeah, but its 250 calories.
