What surprises me most about this article is that anyone could create a breakfast called Banana caramel cream stuffed pancakes (or whatever it was!! ) A whole days worth of calories, more than a days allowance of fat. I'd say it had no nutrition, but I think "anti-nutrition" is more like it. Report
fabulous article. Thanks for the pics--they help a great deal. Report
Wow! What an eye opener! Report
I know I sound like a 4 year old, but please show us MORE of these solutions. Just to visualize the restaurant foods we are served. I know another book i read suggested literally putting 1/2 your plate in a to-go box before you started to eat [when you're "out"], but to see the contrasted options was great.
Could you do a "choose this not that" at the best/worst places to go out? I know w/ lil kids sometimes I get stuck w/ a fast food invitation after a soccer game... Report
WOW - I used to love IHOP Big Steak Omlets, I guess I don't any more. :-0 Report

Pretty amazing difference in how full (or empty) the plate looks! Veggies & fruit are definite pluses! Report

I agree with Steward's comment. What an eye-opener! It's one thing to read an article that suggests making healthy choices. But adding the visuals takes it to another level that hits home and proves to me that I can do this :-) I agree that seeing where snacks fit in would be super helpful. Thanks! Report
