Some were not so surprising: steak omelette, stuffed pizza, Bob Evans "pancakes". The Panera portion shocked me--so tiny! However, as I have never been much for restaurant food, I prefer what SP recommended in the left column (I have even made that pasta dish at the bottom just as an experiment before even seeing this article).
Yikes!!! Absolutely excellent article...the photos are great!
This article has me shocked! I endulge in the foods on the right and to see how only a smidget (if that's a word, lol) of that stuff equals whole nutritious meals with fruits, veggies and lots of the things my body needs. What an eye opener!
I had just been saying the best way to control calories is to cut out the eating out. portion control is my greatest challenge.. but take out food makes it almost impossible by the time you widdle down the meal to stay under your calorie limit... its really not worth it.
Eat wisely and you'll never feel hungry, I've found that to be very true since cooking all of our meals at home.
This is a very big eye-opener for me. I think I will think twice about portions at restaurants! Even eating HALF of most of the meals in restaurants looks like a lot of calories, probably due to unwanted fats for cooking in.
