  • Great article! I did a search and it popped right up. Eating out is problematic for me. So many of my social activities center around eating and sometimes I feel like I've become a hermit as I bow out of things because of the type of restaurant chosen. Hopefully this will help me make educated choices. Thanks for the heads up. - by MARYELLEN301
