Kathie Lee & Hoda: Madelyn’s Food Fight
The ladies are satisfying their sweet tooth with a dessert battle. Whether it is apple pie, cheesecake or chocolate mousse, not all sugary treats are bad for you. To help Kathie Lee and Hoda figure out which sweet treats are good and which ones are bad is Madelyn Fernstrom, Today Show‘s Diet and Nutrition Editor.
Sweet Treats: Apple Crisp Vs Apple Pie
Does apple crisp have more, the same or less calories than apple pie?
The correct answer is the same. They both have about 375 calories.
Sweet Treats: Regular Cheesecake Vs Low-Carb Cheesecake
One slice of cheesecake has 750 calories. If you swap that out for a low-carb cheesecake, how many calories are you going to save?
- 150 calories
- 300 calories
The correct answer is 150 calories. Madelyn said when you get low-carb it is just cutting the sugar out and cheesecake is mostly fat, so the better thing to do is to get two forks and share with someone else.

The correct answer is chocolate mousse. Madelyn said one is about 450 calories and the other is 350 calories.

The correct answer is true. Madelyn said a few bites is just enough.
Sweet Treats: Calories In Tiramisu

The correct answer is more. Madelyn said there are 510 calories in it and 32 grams of fat, so half for the day.
Sweet Treats: Brownie Sundaes
How far would you have to walk to burn off the calories in a brownie sundae?
- 5 miles
- 8 miles
- 11 miles
The correct answer is 11 miles. Madelyn said it is about 1,100 calories, so definitely share that with maybe four people.
