Before reading articles such as this, I would make unhealthy choices such as the dishes listed. Reading and learning really has made a huge difference in the way I eat. emoticon

I do want to say that I feel I can have just about anything when I eat slowly and savor my food. I hardly ever finish a serving in a restaurant anyway. I'd bet in these cases, I would get full less than halfway through. For the most part, though, I'd rather eat less rich foods because then I get hungry for my next meal in a reasonable amount of time. I also eat at home a lot, where I know what's in my food. When I go out, I don't worry quite as much what's in it because I don't do it often, and I tend to eat about the same volume of dense food (meaning my starch and protein) no matter what. I balance with freggies. I've gotten to the point where I can tell that I might choose to eat more lightly at my next meal just because I'll naturally want to balance things, not because I am trying to cut calories. However, this has taken a couple of years of eating mostly out of hunger and satiety, not emotion. It's not what we do at one meal that sinks us.

At the same time, it's still nuts for restaurants to offer such fare. But, as long as the customers keep buying-- and they do!-, they'll probably keep offering it. emoticon

I have a weakness for pasta Alfredo, but I know how unhealthy it is. It is a RARE treat now (like once a year)

The childs dish really irritates me. I would never consider a childs portion/style dish should have that many calories. I agree with a prior poster - should be outlawed. The last time I went to Cheesecake factory they still were disclosing their nutrition info - are they now?

I think that 'breadbowls' just about anywhere, are some of the worst...I go to the Cheesecake Factory about once a year, and boy is it tough to find healthy food choices there (notice there are 2 Cheesecake Factory items on this list of 7).......

I have made some of those mistakes in the past. I think most people know to avoid something with alfredo sauce. But, some of the dishes in restaurants do not state what the sauce is. Usually, this means it is covered in oil of some kind. The best bet, would be to ask.

Our family does eat pasta once in awhile but thankfully what I choose isn't that bad. We eat the Suddenly Salads once in awhile. In fact we're having it for supper tonight. A one cup serving has 240 calories, 37 carbs, 8 fat, and 6 protein. I'm watching my carbs so as long as I stay under 80 grams for the day, I'm doing ok.

Wow, that was interesting! I don't usually eat pasta, but there are a couple on there that I might consider "thinking" it was a wise choice!! Thank you for sharing that

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him.

7 Worst Pasta Dishes in America

Well I think the title says it all *chuckles* when dealing with pasta and things with heavy carbs I do not believe there is anyone who is delusional to think that any good can come from it. However we never know so I will share this anyways. If you enjoy your pasta so be it rock on, at least now you have a little information so you can make informed choices

**knowledge is power**


" Taking ACTION is the ultimate power of Motivation. Nothing beats it, period."

Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."
