Calories responsible for weight gain not type of food, whether its french fries or almonds
French fries are often described in nutrition research literature and dietary guidance statements as having associations with obesogenic diets and as increasing chronic disease risk based on observational research findings. However, there is limited evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) testing cause-and-effect relationships.
RCT published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrates that adding a 300-calorie serving of French fries to one's typical diet every day for a month does not result in differential weight gain or other biomarker changes associated with impaired blood sugar regulation compared to adding an isocaloric daily serving of almonds, generally considered a healthy snack option.
