Pretty interesting. Although, I do have to wonder who eats 4.5 CUPS of chicken stir-fry... that's a lotta stir-fry!

Wow, the calories in that turkey sandwich made my jaw drop.

Thanks for these links. I'm printing out the portion size card now, it's going right up on my fridge

Cool link-

It was fun but, I didn't do so hot- even on determining how much exercise was required... LOL

I was really suprised by the calories in the turky sandwich too, but it was a 10 inch- I would get a six in sub without cheese/mayo & lots of veggies.

too funny. I did a lot better figuring out the calories of the food than how much exercise it would take to work off the extra intake.

amazing how the portions have changed. I didn't know that.

Doesn't surprise me. I actually got the calories of everything except I overestimated the calories of the bagel (thought normal bagels were closer to 400 calories) and overestimated the calories of the burger.

Interesting. I got about 75% right on the portion sizes but about 5% right on the exercise! Mostly I overestimated how long it would take to work it off.
