Bruschetta
A tiny piece of bread, some tomatoes, some olive oil—sounds like a something a fit Italian would eat, but this appetizer may be much higher in fat than you realize. Gensler suggests checking for a telltale shine on the top and bottom of the bread; that will give you a sense of how oily it is. A teaspoon of olive oil has about 45 calories, and the bread is another 40—that's over 80 calories before you even get to the toppings.
