It is a high calorie item. But it is full of good fiber, and slow carbs. I have it as a breakfast or snack and very ocassionally. I measure it because I can def overeat it! The same goes for Nuts... They are on the list for phase 1, as they are full of healthy fats-but they are high in calories.. I believe this is why there is a nut limit. (
Calories in and Calories out. So, depending on how much you move, how much you weigh, your own unique metabolism can help you identify your caloric intake to lose weight.
Hope this helps!!
