The Glazed Donut has been an American breakfast staple for many years. Glazed donuts come in all shapes and sizes so it’s difficult to quantify just how many calories are in one – it really depends on what size and brand of glazed donut we are talking about. Nevertheless, for those wanting to know how many calories in a glazed donut, let’s end the suspense.
The average glazed donut measuring four inches in diameter, has approximately 260 calories in it. For those of you that love Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts varieties you can tack on about 100 extra calories onto that.
The calorie count of your average glazed donut offender at the bakery isn’t what is so bad. It’s the type of calories they consist of. They have no nutritional value, are high in sugar, and will leave you feeling hungry in just a short while after eating one. That leads to chronic donut overeating which will cause the weight to pack on seemingly overnight.
Yep, you heard it correctly – chronic donut overeating! If you’re going to indulge in the morning donut make sure you stick to just one. Going from two glazed bad boys down to one will save you nearly 7500 calories in one month. Your waistline and scale will thank you. Also, avoid the high calorie coffees and lattes and drink water instead.
