It seems people aren't really taking this list the way (I feel) it was intended.
This isn't like a baking substitute chart, or a 'if you want this, eat this instead!'. It's a way of helping people realize where the calories in their eating come from and ways to curb the calories by making different choices.
If you're craving pudding, *eat the pudding*! If you really just want that latte, have the latte.
But if you're scratching your head trying to figure out where you can help cut calories because you seem to be constantly going over, try mustard instead of mayo on your sandwich, or if you're eating out, have the tomato based sauce instead of the white sauce. If you just want a snack, have baked chips instead of regular chips. Need something sweet? Try apple sauce instead of pudding.
But by all means, if you're craving the pudding, eat the pudding.
