Restaurants and Nutrition

Here is the post as promised. I'll follow up on this as I gather more information.

First, I'll give the links. Here's what made the cut from everything I perused online.

  1. Calorie Counters: Restaurant Links
  3. Nutribase
  4.'s Fast Food Nutrition Links
  6. NutriStrategy
Not all that much out there, but there are a few tricks to finding more information, of course.

I'm a Google hound. If I'm going to a new restaurant, and I know what it is ahead of time, I'll find the website and pick through the menu to decide what to eat the rest of the day to possibly accommodate that half order of lasagna I'm going to consume at dinner (yum!).

Another thing - I try to never order something that's cooked in butter. Cooking in butter's okay, obviously, but you really should control how much. Same thing goes for fried food (except occasionally) - try not to order fried food at a restaurant. For french fries, most restaurants will substitute something like cottage cheese, broccoli, or, my favorite, sliced tomatoes.

I found some other general nutrition links that I'll also share.

  1. Heart & Palate
  2. Weight-loss and Nutrition Myths
And, of course, the papa of them all, Subway.

Good feasting!

But what about El Guapo? Does that rule out any dish he prepares?
