How many calories in sushi

Have you ever wondered how many calories in sushi? Check the amount of calories and nutrients in basic sushi rolls, Nigiri sushi (sushi on rice bed), sashimi (sushi without rice), and sushi condiments such as soy sauce and Wasabi.

Fortunately sushi is not a fattening food and contains not much calories. Sushi made with white, short-grained, Japanese rice mixed with a dressing made of rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Rice contains some amount of carbohydrates. Sushi can be eaten even without rice as sashimi which will also reduce amount of eaten calories. Sushi is also rich in protein and this helps in building lean muscle.
Some restaurants with a preference for flavor over calorie watching may add to sushi rolls ingredients, such as mayonnaise, which will increase their caloric values. Sushi that contains mayonnaise and cream cheese, and also tempura sushi, are generally high in calories. They are not recommended in weight loss diets.

Although, If soeomne I was with did order strawb-sushi, I’d def want to try it.This also raises the question of Pineapple-sushi and other types, i’m thinking dark chocolate, or maybe even ice-cream. Or even, put them together Italian kisses sushi.Am I going over board? maybe but probably worth wondering about.
