Is an order of McDonald’s medium fries healthy?

Noom has a classification system that groups foods according to their caloric density. This refers to a measure of how much energy (calories) can be found within a given weight or volume of a food.

Green foods have the lowest caloric density and/or the highest concentration of healthy nutrients.  Think: veggies and whole grains.

Yellow foods have a mid-level caloric density and/or a medium amount of healthy nutrients. Think: lean meats and starches.

Red foods have the highest caloric density, are the most calorie-dense and/or have the least healthy nutrients. Think: red meats and desserts.

Red doesn’t mean “bad” and green doesn’t mean “good” (though it does mean “better”). We only recommend balancing things out in terms of portions and frequency.
