I drain my fruit and toss out the syrup, whether it's "heavy syrup" (lots of sugar) or "light syrup" (some sugar). Does anybody know how much this affects the calorie count? It isn't a really big deal and I've just been counting it as the same (1/2 cup fruit) and using whatever calories are listed, but I know I'm getting less calories than if I had eaten the syrup--and probably a few more than if I'd bought the sometimes more expensive water packed fruit.
Thanks to anyone who can give me a hand on this. Any nutritionists out there?
