Does a calorie count at you favorite resturant stop you from getting the most fattening meal on the menu?

  • Yes, some restaurants don't give their nutritional information and as much as I may have loved them in the past I won't go anymore. I LOVE TGIFridays Sizzling Chicken and Cheese but the fact they won't tell me it's calorie count and carb count means I haven't had it in years....I won't even walk in there anymore.

    Applebees is good in that they have some really tasty healthy options....their Cajun Lime Tilapia is wonderful, and I just remove some of the rice before eating (i'm a diabetic)

  • moderation.... if its a one time deal you do once a year or work it off, then it should be fine.

  • I agree about moderation. You can indulge so your body doesn't go crazy every once in a while. Then you do your work out and all should be forgiven.

  • Yes

    Answer by pinkdragon36 at 7:07 AM on Jan. 19, 2011

  • Yeah, it does. It won't necessarily make me choose the lowest-calorie items on the menu, but it does steer me away from the highest-calorie ones.

  • Yup, it sure does.
