Just had to pass along this juicy little nugget about sit-down food chains which apparently pile tons of calories into their lunch and dinner entrees. Just how bad is it? According to Yahoo Health, a "menu analysis of 24 national chains revealed that the average entree at a sit-down restaurant contains 867 calories, compared with 522 calories in the average fast-food entree. And that's before appetizers, sides, or desserts — selections that can easily double your total calorie intake."
And what if you order a drink or two?
Should sit-down chain restaurants be mandated to reveal the calorie content of their food? Or do you think the consumer just needs to exercise a little self control when it comes to eating out?
