PositiveTip for

Restaurant Meals Heavy in Calories

Making healthy choices while eating out continues to be a challenge!

A research team found when assessing 364 meals from 123 different restaurants in three average American cities that 92% exceeded the recommended calorie level for a single meal. They studied both large-chain and local restaurants. The researchers also found that a single serving, before appetizers, beverages, and dessert, often exceeded the caloric needs for a whole day!

PositiveTip: If you eat out often it may be very hard to maintain ideal weight. Beware of excessive serving sizes!
