49. You always choose chicken breasts over thighs to save calories

THE RESULT: Not as much savings as you think.

THE FIX: It’s true that dark meat is more caloric and higher in sat fat than white, but if you always choose white over dark for the health benefits, take this into consideration: A 4-ounce serving of roasted dark-meat chicken contains just 50 more calories and 2.2g more sat fat than an equal amount of white meat. So you can stray from your fidelity to white meat and opt for the richer flavor of dark meat from time to time.
