Are all calories created equal?

When it comes to dropping pounds, reducing calories from all foods is important, right?

High-fiber and protein-packed foods like broccoli, nuts, and lentils can boost your metabolism. Low- Glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates, like almond milk and whole grains, keep you full longer, so you’re less tempted to overeat. One can have a handful of almonds and a snack-sized bag of 18 potato chips, and they are both 160 calories but are they the same? The almonds are more likely to satiate your hunger than the chips, thanks to their protein and fiber content. Fiber and protein slow down how quickly food moves through your digestive tract, so your body will utilize the nutrients more efficiently.
