Potato Precaution

Before you embark on your low-calorie potato topping adventure—A whopper of a potato, before toppings, can have more calories than a 6-ounce sirloin steak (though none of the saturated fat). The bigger the potato, the more topping acreage: Use small potatoes for side dishes, large spuds if you're going to make them into an entrée.

Small (1-3/4" to 2-1/2" diameter): 150 calories

Medium (2-1/4" to 3-1/4"): 190 calories

Large (3" to 4-1/4"): 325 calories

Extra-large (4-1/2" to 6"): 512 calories
