Calories are not the only consideration for "eating well" (as this website is titled). Eating salad after the main course, as many place in the world do, can help aid digestion with fiber intake but also preventing the diluting of stomach acid from the water content of fruits/vegetables. Look at the whole picture of healthy, not just counting calories or carbohydrates, etc. This doesn't lead to a healthy mindset about eating, nor will it probably help the physical health until you broaden your perspective.
