Three years ago, New York City Board of Health banned smoking in restaurants.
Then the Board initiated the move to ban trans fat from all of their food.
Early this year, the Board required the city’s chain restaurants with more than 15 units nationally to list nutritional information and calories on menus and menu boards. These include TGI Friday’s, Outback Steakhouse, Chipotle, Quiznos, Wendy’s, Starbucks, Subway, Auntie Anne’s, Jamba Juice and Chevys chains.
Now these restaurants are required to list the calories along with prices of the foods on the menus to comply with regulations. Click here for details.
When you eat out, it's difficult control the ingredients in the food and how it's prepared. It's likely that you don't know how much you're eating. Now you get a chance to know the calorie and price of the item on the menu. Many people got this whooping calorie shocking reaction in addition to the price-sticker shock.
The typical reaction is ...
"Wow...!! I couldn't believe a small muffin has that many calories."
"I thought I'm eating healthy by just eating salad. But that plate of salad with everything on it cost me 1300 caloires?!"
"That Grande Frappuccino is 430 caloires?! and loaded with fat!!"
Now get this ...
Taco Bell Border Grande Taco Salad with Taco Beef = 1,450 calories
Outback Bloomin' Onion = 2,310 calories
Wendy 3/4 Pound Triple with Cheese = 980 calories
Chiptole Mexican Grilled Chicken Burrito = 1,179 calories
Chili Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream = 1,600 calories
McDonald's Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips with creamy ranch sauce = 830 calories
Starbucks Pecan Magic Bar = 450 calories
