Most of these dishes have more calories than stated because your local restaurant's cook thinks he's being a nice guy by giving you more than the chain considers to be one serving. The article makes it sound like it's a vast right wing conspiracy to make us fat.

I'm always a little suspicious of anything that comes out of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Most of their reports are designed for the most impact on the evening news and not for the pure science. I'm sorry but not everything is a heart attack on a plate. Some things are occasional treats that do no harm at all.

I really doubt there are a lot of people out there who would be surprised that fettucine al fredo is really bad for you, but the the CSPI always makes it sound like breaking news.
