    If healthy food is so healthy, why does it have higher calories?

    I never understood why, shouldn't they technically be lower calorie.

    The term healthy means ones thing ... the profile of micro nutrients and the ratios of macro nutrients compared with each other.

    Is healthy good really higher in calories? I don't really think it is.  A broiled lean chicken breast versus a hamburger patty--no contest.  Fresh vegetables versus the one in the frozen food sections with all the sauces on it - are much lower and better for the body. 

    What foods are you saying are higher if healthy?  I probably should know this.

    Like "there's only 90 calories" but when opened its just a smaller portion or the 400 calorie kashi, luna, etc bars. Sometimes I compare and by the label a candy bar is better.
