Cool Nutrition Information

OK - I thought this was so cool that I just had to share, and since you guys are the only ones I know that could possibly care, I am sharing with you. I am entering my fitday information and I couldn't find an appropriate Low Carb Burger to enter - so I decided to enter my Hardee's Low Carb burger as a custom food. I went to the Hardees.com website - and they have the coolest nutrition section. You have their menu and select what you want to eat and it tells you everything except vitamin information.

Ok - so even you guys may not think it is neat, but I loved it!!! Are there any other restaurants that have something similar, because if I know what I am eating, I just may go there.

As far as fast food goes, McDonalds, Burger King, and Taco Bell all have nutrition info on their websites that is customizable, as in you are able in a few clicks to leave off or add extra components of the item (like the bun, ketchup, cheese, etc) and get updated nutrition info-you can find out how many carbs in a quarter pounder just cheese no bun, etc
They all have great info, but Burger King especially-They have a section that just lists low carb options. I don't know of any actual restaurants that aren't fast food that do this, though.

That sounds like an awesome addition to their site! And the GREAT information for people that eat LC and have other dietary specifications. Thanks for the tip

I also belong to a site called Calorie King. You can look at their food database for free and they have a lot of nutrition information for food products that are out on the market along with restaurant information.
