I actually have a package (right next to me) that I got from Trader Joe's (Tandoori Naan) . For 1 piece it is 180 calories, 2g of fat.
Ingredients: Wheat flour, water, milk, yogurt, sunflower oil and salt.
It's about the size of a large slice of pizza. I make pizza's out of them, which are super tasty. It tastes much better if you put it directly on the oven rack, as it makes it crispy, which I like. Today I made it and put it on a cookie sheet and it came out to soft and the kids hated it.

i don't know if they sell this at markets, but when i eat at my local indian restaurant, i order the roti bread, which is the whole wheat version of naan.

I buy whole wheat naan. I don't count calories, so I don't know how many it has, but I eat 1 and it's very very filling.

How about taking a wholewheat pita bread and warming it in the oven with a little low-fat spread or olive oil, then sprinkling with a little parsley and chopped garlic? Not exactly the same, but it might satisfy your craving...

make your own! Why eat prepackaged naan when you can cook it yourself and eat it nice and warm? My boyfriend decided to make some (he is jumping on board with my clean eating) and it was amazing, much better than packaged....and we just made little ones too....

one piece of NAAN is not a serving its only half of it is a serving. a package is 4 servings.

only eat one serving at a time.

or try flatout bread.

I'm half indian. Try making whole wheat Chapatti... it's similar enough. You can drizzle a little olive oil and garlic and it will taste yum.

Hmm, from what I remember of naan I've bought before, one serving (which is half of a piece) was about 150-180 Calories. That doesn't seem too bad. Try to eat one serving, not the whole piece; take a piece out of the package, rip it in half, put the other piece back, and then put the whole pack back in your pantry so it's out of sight.

Is it possible to find a healthier version of naan? I love it, but limit it to once a week because one piece is around 400 calories. I've tried several different brands, but they're all pretty high in calories. I may try making my own, but I haven't had the best luck with making breads. Does anyone know of a brand available in the US (can't get the Tesco version here) that makes lighter naan?
