All food and beverages can, and should, be consumed in moderation. What matters most is portion size because whether you eat too much fat, protein, or carbohydrate, when too many calories are going in without enough calories being burned then weight gain occurs. As a registered dietitian and consultant to the food and beverage industry, I emphasize the importance of portion control, moderation and physical activity to my clients. The truth is, no single food or beverage causes obesity or chronic diseases - it's the culmination of large portions, too many calories consumed and not enough exercise.
