They don't release their nutritional information, so you're not going to find specifics. This means you're going to have to resort to general restaurant-eating tips.
1. Watch your portion. Box up or throw away at least half of what you are served. Do this before they serve you, so you aren't tempted to snack after you're full.
2. Watch for menu buzzwords:
(Potentially Good for You)
(Probably Bad for You)
Bearnaise (or hollandaise)
"Bet you can't finish it"
Buttery / Buttered
Creamed / Creamy
Fried / Deep fried
On the specific Hooters menu - the best option I see would be the steamed shrimp - ask them to ensure they are just STEAMED, not coated in sauce of any kind - a half pound of shrimp (weighed with shells) will cost you only 177 calories if they are truly just steamed. Have some lemon or cocktail sauce with them. With a dinner-size garden salad (have them remove most/all of the fattening extras...cheese, croutons, etc), you have a very filling, high protein meal that (with a nonfat or lowfat dressing...they have a lite italian and a lite ranch on the menu) should come in around 400 calories. For 550 or so, you could have the full lb of shrimp - so much lean protein!
