Does pepperoni make you fat and how it affect your weight?

Very hight count of calories in pepperoni puts this product at the top of hight calorific sausage. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific sausage, pepperoni seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other sausage.

It is hard to find product with higher calories count in sausage. Similar energy amount have only such products as salami, turkey salami or weiners.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If pepperoni contains nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
