Another great article from Janet Helm, one of the leading nutritionists in the country. I love her work and I love this article, proving as I've always said that a calorie is NOT just a calorie and the type DOES count...

That  age-old adage may no longer be true.  Increasingly scientists
are realizing that not all calories are created equal.   For instance,
calories from an apple may not be equivalent to calories from a Twinkie
(and yes, even the new chocolate Twinkies).

Read more in Janet's column in the April issue of Cooking Light magazine:  How Calories Really Count.
