Sushi Calories - More Than A Mars Bar!

Before you go thinking all fish is considered healthy, you may want to check these sushi calories first! It turns out that those little, tasty rolls pack quite a wallop in the calorie department. I'm talking a real wallop - like more calories than a Mars bar! Surprised? Yeah, so are most people.

First, consider that sushi is wrapped in white rice, which by itself isn't exactly a great choice. For people looking to trim down, it's probably wise to avoid simple sugars of this kind all together, if possible.

There are brown rice sushis, so these are already a healthier option. Still, though, there are some serious calories to contend with. For example, an eel and avocado roll has 372 calories and 17.5g of fat!

Granted, much of this is “good" fat, but still, that's a whole lot of calories for one tiny roll of sushi! And, if you make the mistake of getting something fried, you're in even bigger trouble. Remember that shrimp tempura roll you ate? Well, I'm sorry to break the news to you, but it had 544 calories and 13g of fat in it!

This is not to say that you should avoid eating sushi completely, but, it's not something you want to indulge in too frequently. Oh yeah, not to kick a fish while he's down, but another bit of bad news regarding sushi - it's typically very high in mercury relative to healthier fish options like salmon.

Still, this does not mean that sushi is the enemy. Just try to be more discerning when it comes to what kind you eat. If you're still not sure, a much healthier alternative is to go with the sashimi, which leaves out the rice (although it still carries the same mercury risk).

Don't spend all of your sushi calories in one place!
