Salads WORSE than a Whopper

30 Mar

I got this email today and I had to share it. I’ve always heard that you need to be careful when you order a salad from a restaurant since small add-ons can pile on the calories. Here is the complete list of 20 salads that are sadly worse than eating a Whopper.

FYI – a Whopper is 670 calories!

Here are a few that are on the list:

  1. BLT Cobb Salad at Wendy’s with Ranch and croutons = 760 calories
  2. Fully loaded Steak Salad from Taco Bell = 900 calories
  3. Chicken Ceasar Flat Bread Salad from Quiznos = 920 calories
  4. Grilled Shrimp and Spinach Salad from Applebees = 1,050 calories
  5. Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad from Friday’s = 1,360 calories

Spring Forward without Setbacks

07 Mar

The warmer weather is coming!  Hooray!  Who doesn’t love the hearing the birds chirp and the seeing the sun shinning for days in a row?  I love spring – a time for growth and renewal.  The trees and flowers are blooming, the snow is melting, the air smells crisp and clean!  Sadly, some of the greatest things about spring are also some of the worst.  With the weather getting warmer, people start shedding their wintry layers for shorts and tees and start to feel the early spring guilt and self doubt.  It happens every year and we can’t seem to always escape it.  Luckily, changing a few restaurant eating habits can help.  See what David Zinczenko has to say about swapping a few things out of your diet, which could help you lose that last 5-10 lbs.
