I've been surprised at how informative it really is. DP feels it is unnecessary but there have been several times that I was surprised at the relative calorie content of different items on the same menu.

This will be very helpful. I just started Weight Watchers again. I try to be prepared ahead of time, but sometimes I get caught off guard.

It is really hard, I keep seeing those "CALORIE HORRORS!!!" things on yahoo and it is just mind boggling how horrible some of the salads are. There have been several salads with more calories than someone should eat in a day!!

Not all those who wander are lost

I found California Pizza Kitchen's (yum) nutritional content to be pretty horrific. They have *multiple* salads over 1000 calories.

Of course, it only makes sense that Blue Cheese isn't *healthy* but I think it would really help people to actually see it right in front of them. Also, it might be a kick in the pants to restaurants to start being a bit more responsible with their menu.

See, that is exactly what I'm talking about. Red Robin is another one. I wonder how many people order something they think sounds better for them than a burger and fries---- like a chicken salad--- only to look and the calories are out of this world!
