I think there are some MAJOR errors on that site.

The site lists 4 ounces of catfish as 100 calories
4 ounces of breaded, fried catfish is 260 calories (according to the USDA)
Even plain, grilled catfish, 4 ounces is 170 calories

The 3 ounces of French Fries is listed as only 60 calories
The actual amount is closer to 280 calories (according to USDA)

I thought the numbers seemed kinda low as well but I got them off the Chicken Express site. They were only counting the fish as 100 calories per piece. May need to drop them an e-mail about their numbers.

2 pieces of fish 200
Gravy 50
3 hushpuppies 130
Chicken express french fries 60
Sweet tea 190

Are you sure of the calorie count?? Perhaps it was small portions.
630 calories doesn't seem right for what you describe.

I estimate:
12 ounces purchased sweet tea = 150
2 pieces fried fish = 400
French Fries 200-300
Plus Gravy?? 75-100

Don't sweat it though.
For dinner prepare a large salad, low calorie dressing, grilled chicken breast, and a serving of fruit---you'll still be fine.

I pigged out today for lunch with the kids and figured that one meal was my only food for today. I almost worry that I've done something wrong when entering the food emoticon Usually when we are hungry and out, I pick up a quarter pounder with cheese (530 calories). Today I had two pieces of fish, gravy and french fries, and a sweet tea for 630 calories.

That is half my calories for today and all that fried food was pretty high in fat, but boy am I relieved that I get to have a little something tonight for dinner.
