i checked the weight watchers points on the provolone stuffed meatballs and fettuccine, aka the number 1 worst food on the list

its 38 points, the equivalent of two and half of my days worth of food.

:yikes:

They're just adding to the standard American's misperceptions about food portions.

SCARY!!!

Yeah seriously- I always scrutinize the nutrition menu when I eat somewhere- looking for the lowest carb/calorie item I can and ALWAYS drinking water!

i honestly would have ordered that before as well, i love meat, cheese and and carbs. Today though, no way.. it would not be worth it.

im a carboholic! im insane with pasta bread and rice and cereals even.
but im not counting carbs, for me its more about fat, and i eat just around 30g a day, so the provolone centered meatballs = 97g of fat, thats 3 days of fat for me!?

gotta be kidding.

I eat at Applebees often and use the nutrition data to order other entrees that fit with my low cal/reduced carb plan. It is possible and delicious but it takes effort.

No effort in ordering pasta and cheese, KWIM.

Does anyone else think that the Friendly's SuperMelt-Burger-Grilled-Cheese thing is disgusting? Even if I wasn't on a diet I wouldn't order that!
