High Calorie Dishes To Avoid At Your Favorite Restaurants


AOL had this great article up this morning about dishes you should avoid while dining out. Sometimes the results are so shocking! When I think TURKEY, I don’t think AVOID… but that’s exactly what you should be doing if you are in Chili’s. See below for more tips.

Chili’s – Nothing gets you in the mood for Thanksgiving like a turkey sandwich. The Smoked Turkey on a toasted chile-pepper sandwich roll has 960 calories and 55 grams of fat. Add some fries with that and you will soon be buying bigger pants.

Starbucks – A 16 ounce Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte with whipped cream will add 380 calories and 17 grams of fat to your diet. Don’t even think about ordering that cheesecake.

Marie Callender’s – A slice of Pecan Pie with no topping at all has 920 calories and 14 grams of fat. At 460 calories and 7 grams of fat, a slice of Pumpkin Pie is a slightly better choice. But only slightly.

Applebee’s – Chicken isn’t always the healthier choice. Applebee’s Fiesta Lime Chicken meal serves up 1,285 calories and 47 grams of fat. And skip that Sizzling Apple Pie with Ice Cream dessert. It has 1,086 calories and 56 grams of fat.

Dunkin’ Donuts – A yummy Pumpkin Muffin has 630 calories and 28 grams of fat. Add a small Pumpkin Latte and you will add another 220 calories and 6 grams of fat to your morning snack.

Cracker Barrel – Stopping by Cracker Barrel for a little breakfast before shopping can be dangerous for your diet. Grandpa’s Country Fried Breakfast with Hashbrowns and Steak has 1,750 calories and 20 grams of fat.

Thanks mom!
