Watch out for these high-calorie spring favorites.
Spring's arrival brings not just daffodils and tulips, but a wake-up call for everyone who has been hibernating during the winter, avoiding exercise, indulging in comfort foods -- and adding extra pounds. With the weather warming up, it's time to put away the bulky sweaters and get ready for skimpier clothing. But unless you're careful about spring's most fattening foods, you might actually add to your winter weight gain instead of shedding those extra pounds.
