Wow, now I GET it. Macaroni Grill opened up recently. We love to go for pau hana drinks, etc. For the first time, I've actually looked up the damage of what I eat. Was starving last night so started with the Mozzarella Alla Caprese Salad and chose the Chicken Scaloppine dinner. Skipped cocktails. Skipped bread & olive oil. Still the count is staggering:
Mozzarella alla caprese: 440 cals. 37g fat. 9g carbs. 19g protein
Chix Scaloppine dinner: 1410 cal. 112 g fat. 68 g carbs. 42 g protein
I ate 1840 calories in one mealů worse: 149 g fat?!
Because I was dilligent for 6 out of the 7 days this past week, really not bad: under 1,500 cals per day which really is where my body seems to function best. Fat grams avg: 62 which is higher than where I should be.
Just imagining, though, if:
1) Had thrown a couple of martinis (about 250 cals ea) plus bread/olive oil into that mix?!
2) Had dessert?! Just 1/2 tiramisu = 590 cals and another 42 g fat
3) Did this more than once in a while?!
