Why so many calories?

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Sometimes you have to eat out. So you choose a healthier option. Then you enter it into your food log and realize you could've eaten half to two-thirds as many calories by eating junk. Sure, you can look up nutrition info before you buy, but how do you choose between healthier and lower calorie? I don't skimp on things where nutrition is lost along with the calories, but when those calories are huge?

Why does a chicken teriyaki bowl have to have nearly 700 calories?

    I feel your pain!!! Some days I eat less calories consuming junk than I do eating a salad with dressing and grilled chicken.
