Restaurant Food Calories
"Restaurant food calories facts to help you make healthy eating choices..."
The average American spends half of their food budget eating out. Certainly a problem if you consider that calories in restaurant foods are usually much higher than the meals you prepare at home. Add to that the fact that restaurant food calories are also usually much higher than what restaurants advertise... (See fast food statistics and the dangers of fast food.)
The Journal of the American Diabetic Association published a recent study of 10 restaurant chains, (including Wendy's and Ruby Tuesday) and found that out of 29 selected meals the total calories were on average 18 per cent higher than what was advertised. Even frozen supermarket meals like those from Weight Watchers, South Beach Living and Healthy Choice had on average 8 per cent more calories than what nutrition labels advertised.
It's also true that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration allows a 20% margin of error, nonetheless, if every time you ate out, and got a couple of hundred calories more than what you thought, that can really add up. There's a big demand for restaurants to put calories and nutrition values on menus, but that's only useful if the nutrition and calorie content is correct.
