How fattening are Oreos?

A single Oreo contains 40 calories, 3.3 grams of sugar and 2 grams of fat. Doesn't sound bad if you can limit yourself to two or three, right? But that's the problem—most people can't. In fact, science shows that the high-sugar, high-fat taste of Oreos is flat out addictive.

Similarly one may ask, is it OK to eat Oreos on a diet?

Just don't eat the entire box of Oreos, and add a glass of lowfat milk for calcium. If your cookie indulgence leaves you wracked with guilt or trying to compensate by starving yourself the next day, tell yourself to eat healthily to make up for it, because starving can set you up for more overeating later.

Also Know, how many calories are 3 Oreos? Based on the information Kraft provided, I figure a regular “Original” Oreo has roughly 53 calories (three cookies have 160) and a “Double Stuf” Oreo has 70 (two cookies have 140 calories).

Keeping this in consideration, how bad are Oreos for you?

Eating several packages of Oreos in a single week definitely will. The reason we've seen such a sharp increase in rates of obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes might be that most people are eating more than the recommended daily amount of added sugar.

Why is Oreo banned in USA?

Oreo cookies should be banned from sale to children in California, according to a lawsuit filed by a San Francisco attorney who claims that trans fat -- the stuff that makes the chocolate cookies crisp and their filling creamy -- is so dangerous children shouldn't eat it.
