  • I just had Sbarro's the other day and just about freaked out when I tried to log it. lol Ugh! - 9/6/2016 11:05:01 PM
  • Wow! You sure get a lot more to eat and filled up more by eating healthier. I cannot eat too much carbs because of my IBS; same with protein. Last time I ate out at Mcdonalds and had a burger and fries it went through me. Total waste of money then. It is so hard to find healthy options at fast food places. Their selections are either high in sodium or fat, or carbs. I also found out through an email from Web MD that they put a lot of other junk in the fast food too. Check it out under the title 'What's Really in Your Fast Food?

  • essentially~ Don't eat out!! - 9/6/2016 9:18:43 AM
  • Amazing. When the choices are put side by side like this, who wouldn't opt for more healthy food?! Why do restaurants serve such big portion sizes? - 9/6/2016 9:07:35 AM
    All full of carbs! All high carbohydrate food that I don't ever eat! My 300 calories looks very different from THAT! - 8/15/2016 7:07:16 PM
  • WOW! Impressive comparison!!! - 8/15/2016 2:30:53 PM
  • Great article! As they say, seeing is believing and a picture is worth a thousand words. Please give us more like this! - 8/15/2016 10:17:20 AM
  • Wow eye opener! Especially the 1/3 of a SLICE of pizza being 300 calories. How many slices do we normally eat?? - 8/15/2016 8:15:30 AM
  • Wow if all places let you see the nutrition facts when you order . We would be sharing meals or taking half home or eating at home more. - 7/14/2016 4:11:51 PM
  • I would like to see more examples like these. This was a good artical very much and eye opener. - 4/19/2016 10:49:48 PM
    This really does help me. When I try to eyeball a portion, it still turns out way more than I should be eating at one sitting. The visuals gave me a better way to measure my food intake. - 2/29/2016 8:01:37 AM
  • These visuals should be the final straw in people's decision to switch to an obviously healthier diet. Fast food from any diner even Raw food one's are always not as healthy than what would be made at home. Also changes in home cooking should be done too like turkey bacon, turkey ground meat 2-1% milk, Almond milk 3 grams of sugar to finally unsweetened etc

    In pretty short order you'll wonder how you ever ate the way you did before, and will be so grateful you are not diabetic from your previous horrible diet. The appreciation for food, taste will be so much better once you are aware of how unhealthy your previous unfulfilling diet was compared to your current lifelong lifestyle change for the unbelievably much better one you now consume. - 2/27/2016 12:39:22 PM
  • WOW! ! ! That sure does open my eyes. I can make better choices. - 2/27/2016 8:21:43 AM
    A good reminder to eat at how. While you can find small ones, keep in mind most whole grain bagels from bagel shops, Panera, etc. are 300 calories are more by themselves.... - 2/26/2016 9:12:24 PM
  • I love this article! It really captures what I have seen during my first week. It also motivates me to cook rather than eat out! - 2/26/2016 3:00:02 PM
