The #1 source of excess calories for many people is desserts, especially those made with white flour (and breads are #2). These treats, while delicious, are typically high in sugar and refined carbohydrates but low in nutritional value. White flour, a common ingredient, undergoes processing that strips away beneficial fibers and nutrients. This not only leads to quick spikes in blood sugar but also contributes to longer-term calorie overconsumption, as these foods are less satisfying. Opting for desserts made with whole grains or alternative flours, and moderating portion sizes, can help manage calorie intake while still allowing room for sweet indulgences.
