I try not to get too obsessed with calorie counting and just keep my focus on eating healthier.
I have found that choosing a salad over a sandwich is not always the best idea. Especially if you are at Chili's and your salad has 1,000+ calories! I still can not understand why anyone would make a salad that has 1,000 calories, it completely defeats the purpose. Luckily I came across the "Eat this, Not That" website so hopefully I won't get tricked into eating such an unhealthy salad again.
I haven't found that counting calories works for me (just too hard to keep up with). I do find it helpful to use this website when it comes to Fast Food and dining out. Clearly, sometimes things are not what they appear. Check out the website to see other food swaps. If you find this information helpful there is a book you can buy, or you can you just the website for free like me!
NYC officials also see the benefit in providing information caloric information to consumers.
They recently passed a law that requires Fast Food restaurants to post the calories right next to the prices. After my experience at Chili's I think it is a really good idea. Knowing the calories could help people make healthier choices.
