I have never eaten in any of these places except Dennys when I was younger which was after the bar closed and we all would go get breakfast Not to worry because I'm sure I still get way more salt than I should in my food.

The list is PREPARED foods from different restaurants, not an ingredient list.

You must report to the woodshed immediately and no jacuzzi for the first 30 minutes! Also, Phillipe (he's the one that speaks French) was told no pedicure until tomorrow - manicure and facial are fine! Hey, I've upgraded the woodshed just in case I have to go.

OHMYGOSH, I can't imagine any of this sodium is actually necessary. Is anybody else bothered by this? My body just can't tolerate all this sodium, and I find that every day older I get, the worse it seems to affect me.

Last night we stopped at Culvers, sort of a regional frozen custard/burger chain, and after two chicken fingers I felt bad from the sodium. It makes it very hard to eat out ... I find that salad dressings and soups are the worst.

interesting list. thankfully, i can't recall eating in any of those places, and don't plan to.

however, some of the suggestions in the list for how to make it healthier are stupid. like many nutritionists, they miss the point of why we choose to eat something.

for instance, how about the rigatoni romano. that's rigatoni with sausage and a cheesey sauce. their suggestion was to have plain sauce and chicken. well, then why order rigatoni romano?
or have a steak instead of having beef stroganoff, in the beef category. they're not the same thing. why would i order a hunk o' beef if i wanted it with gravy and noodles?

for the chinese food, it says to skip the fried rice with the beef and broccoli. ok, i thought they were seperate dishes to begin with.

and never eat fajitas at any cost, anywhere.

men's health needs better editors.
