Strike out: Peanuts

Peanuts are a great source of heart healthy fat, but if it's game seven, bottom of the ninth, with two outs, two men on base, and your team's down by two, you're going to munch through more than a single serving. A half-cup of shelled peanuts contains 414 calories and 36 grams of fat, which can take more than 2 hours to burn off on the treadmill, says <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT007845" title="Jim White" href="/topic/sports/jim-white-PESPT007845.topic">Jim White</a>, RD, a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association. Shelling peanuts is a good way to keep calm during a nail-biter, but that anxiety will return when you step onto the scale.
