You Won't Believe What Has More Calories

New Delhi: A calorie is a unit of energy. Various definitions exist but fall into two broad categories. The first, the small calorie, or gram calorie, is defined as the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius at a pressure of one atmosphere.The second is the large calorie or kilogram calorie, also known as the food calorie and similar names, is defined in terms of the kilogram rather than the gram. It is equal to 1000 small calories or 1 kilocalorie. 
A thick Middle Eastern paste made from ground sesame seeds is known as Tahini. At 89 calories and 8 grams of fat per tablespoon, Tahini (also known as sesame butter) is a pretty calorically dense food. While it's full of healthy ingredients like B vitamins and even rich in calcium, it's also super easy to go overboard. Stick to a ping pong ball-sized serving (about 2 tablespoons) to keep your calories in check.
They certainly aren't nutrition villains, but raisins are considered a 'calorically dense' food, meaning that you can consume a lot of calories by ingesting only a small amount. You can eat two full cups of grapes for the same amount, making this one snack you're better off substituting (if you are really hungry) in order to maximize your calories.
Rice Cakes
Rice crackers just sound lighter, don't they? Well, don't let their name distract you from their calorie count—most brands have as many calories per serving as their regular cracker counterparts. While they can have a place in your healthy diet, you're much better off snacking on something that fills you with nutrients too, not just empty calories.

Grape-Nuts Cereal

It's often advertised as a healthy way to start your day, but a bowlful of Grape-Nuts cereal can pack in 416 calories (per cup, without milk). What is even more surprising is its sodium content. With 580 mg of sodium per cup (and it's not exactly packed with fiber either), there are much better breakfast options out there.
Peanut Butter
Peanut butter proven ability to help build muscle, burn fat, and even fight heart disease, but we hate that those benefits only apply when you enjoy the creamy spread in moderation. Consider this: two large spoonfuls can pack almost as many calories and fat as a Snickers bar! At around 100 calories per tablespoon.
Coconut Milk
Coconut Milk may have the potential to speed up your metabolism and help boost your weight-loss efforts, but that doesn't make it calorie-free. One cup of coconut milk has a hefty 552 calories and an astounding 57 grams of fat! Be sure to check your favorite brand's label and try to find one with 100 calories or less per serving
