sashimi platters are even better... that way you get a bowl of rice and end up eating a much higher fish-to-rice ratio. If done right they can't be beat... though sometimes a real yummy role is simply non-negotiable when you go for sushi.

Have some sashimi - that's just the plain raw fish (no rice) and is VERY low in calories. I like mine dipped in Sriracha (chili and garlic sauce).

I've heard others suggest nigiri as well, that it is much lower in calories than sushi.
Calorie wise they are generally low calorie. A 8 piece fresh and easy store brands 8 piece california roll platter is only 390 calories. BUT the sodium is off the chart. I dont know if they are including the 2 soy sauce packet in that count but it is over 1000mg sodium so I cant do it.

I think sushi is fairly healthy (provided you stay away from fried and mayo-ed rolls), but the calories still can add up quickly if you're like me. I could eat sooo much sushi! Instead of ordering 3 or 4 rolls, I'll pick 1 or 2 and round the meal out with a miso soup, or steamed edemame, or seaweed salad. :)
There are a few sushi entries in the tracker. You can also opt for nigiri, which is just the fish on rice, and is healthy. Watch the soy sauce, the sodium is stupidly high! Overall I think sushi can be one of the healthiest fast food options, just skip anything deep fried and with a creamy sauce.

Like Nirerin said... one role can have philadelphia cream cheese or tempura in it with avocado on top and be glazed with a teriyaki -like sauce, another may have just fish and veggies and roe and still be a speciality roll (or even just veggies). Depends what you ate. It pains me how much my sushi noms count for T_T;
Google it. There are too many different kinds of specialty rolls to have an average. Something with a deep fried center and mayo plus sauce will be higher than something that has eel sauce, which will be lower than something with eel sauce wapped in avocado.

Is sushi bad for you? I know that it is probably the rice and sauces that raise the amount of calories in a roll... but about how many calories are there in a normal 8-piece specialty roll?
