If you are a fan of sushi and want to control overeating, know that a dose of sushi corresponding to a regular meal consisting of 6 hosomaki (small) pieces, or 3 futomaki (large) pieces, or 4 nigiri. The caloric values can range from 23 kcal/piece in variants with vegetables, and 85 kcal/piece in fried variants wrapped in batter.
At the entrances enjoy the miso soup, low calorie (40 kcal per 250 ml) and very rich in antioxidants and fibers.
In the side dishes the sashimi and the edamame can provide good doses of protein helping in the control of hydrates.
As for the sauces, the one of ginger wins in the list of the healthiest, but it must moderate the soy sauce and the wasabi since for each portion of 15 gr, 2 gr will be of salt.
