Candied Yams

A half-cup of candied yams is 170 calories. If you add marshmallows to this confection, you'll run up the calorie meter even more. (A half-cup of marshmallows is 80 calories.) It’s easy to reach for seconds on this dish but beware: That can easily bring you to 500 calories. Walking time: Two hours and 46 minutes.
