EW. Maybe one of these looks good, because I am a chocolate hound, but the rest of them EW EW EW.

Sadly, four months ago some of these would have made me want to go out to these places to eat!

Surprising they said to ditch the Cheesecake Factory entirely. I get a really yummy salad there for less than 500 calories.

PF Chang's Doube Pan-Fried Noodles Combo (served with beef, pork, chicken, and shrimp)

1,820 calories
84 g fat (8 g saturated, 3.5 g trans)
7,692 mg sodium

How is that much sodium even remotely possible?! Egads!

edit: The only thing on that menu that makes my stomach rumble is the pizza. I miss deep dish pizza (though not Uno's pizza!)

Holy moly, that's amazing that they can pack so many calories into one dish.

Holy fat and calories Batman! Seriously some of those looked downright gross - thankfully we don't have any of those dining options too near us except TGIFridays and we don't go there.

What really gets me is that some of those options have the appearance of being healthy - grilled shrimp, veggie subs, etc. but any health benefits are completely obliterated by the stuff they pile on top!

I just read the article before coming on this site and my mouth dropped from SHOCK not hungry lol all the things looked gross to me but the sad thing is before I started my journey I would of eaten all that stuff it is amazing what we learn in such a short amount of time.

My DH was having an affair with Baconators. He would find bacon perfume sexy, LOL!!! Now he is 22lbs thinner, since he is trying to lower his cholesterol. Jeez, now I know why it was so high.

This is why prior to eating out, I look up the nutrition online and make my choices before I get to the place. It is amazing because the item that you would "think" is healthier is usually loaded with calories/fat/sodium and I always have to order something different. But I realize doing the research is great, and if I would have done it before, I might not have been at 266+ lbs!

Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one thinking that!!! Everything else looked kinda gross to be honest but I that deep dish brownie sundae thing? Someone would have to wrestle it away from me.

*ahem* I mean, of course, it looks good but I would much prefer a nice healthy bowl of grapes. :nose:

Goodforme.... That is EXACTly the right term.
fattymcfaty - I just started looking up nutritional info before I go. I am saddened by some of the things I "thought" were healthy. BUT, it really does help me feel a little more prepared.
Luckily, I learned a loong time ago that I would rather eat my calories than drink them when I am being healthy.. So the crazy drinks, never really appealed to me.

Earlier today I got a $50 gift card good at Chili's, On the Border, Macaroni Grill, or Maggianos Little Italy... and I think I may have to regift it :o These places all just make me think of food items like the ones on that list~

The food makes me sick just looking at it. No wonder obesity is an epidemic when they sell foods like these.

Some of it looks vile, but I'm not gonna lie--some of it still looks pretty durned tasty, too. I would not leave those thick-cut french fries alone. :D

NONE of it is worth anywhere near the high nutritional costs, though. Good grief, how do they even fit the calories into some of that food? That shrimp pasta dish is only 500 calories shy of being the equivalent of an entire pound of pure butter. Calorie-wise, you would be better off gnawing a standard stick of butter like a popsicle, washing it down with a Big Gulp-sized Coke, and finishing it up with two scoops of premium ice cream than eating that dish.

How is that even possible!?

I like how they tried to make some of it look gross by the picture. Like the stouffer's pot pie, they broke it in 1/2 while it was still frozen. And the fries, they dumped them out and they were the shape of the carton. haha!

Some of it looked gross. Some of it looked normal, like the salad. I'm weary of restaurant salads that aren't the small side one, but some of those it doesn't seem possible to ad that many calories to one dish. I binge eat and some of my binges do not equal the calories in one dish. Crazy!

lazylioness
12-14-2010, 02:51 PM
yeah its all crazy.

The brownie, I would be ALL OVER IT. Some of the other stuff too, like basically anything from CF.

OY.

But seriously, nothing tastes as good as I remember, and none of it is worth gaining everything back.

Once in a while,sure why not, but only if I am in a good place mentally (which right now...so NOT)

I don't understand where all the damn sodium comes from.

Gosh...that's crazy! How do some of those items even have 100g of fat? I didn't even know that was possible!
"Uhhh, yes I'll take THAT and a heart attack please! Ohh, and a side of saddlebags! Thanks!"
Pretty disgusting really.. :barf:

I'd really be interested to know. Maybe that will be my homework tonight...find out where all the sodium comes from in restaurant food.

Most of that stuff looks delicious, to be honest. The only things that looked gross were the desserts, goopy salads, the frozen pot pie, and the obviously congealed by fat and took the form of the cup french fries.

At first, I really wanted to eat some of those things - then I thought, "How could I make the same things at home without the coatings of grease?" :)

I would love the brownie pizza thing, though, and wouldn't bother doing that at home. But I would need to bring 15 of my closest friends with me when I order it!

I used to split that cookie brownie thing with my boyfriend between the two of us. I think that's going to be my first meal when I move back to America. And then I can't eat anything for the rest of the week.

I would admit - that if I was going to order fries - and I haven't in a couple months now ....

It'd have to be FIVE GUYS!

(They cook them in peanut oil, but the portions are unreal.)
