Help! My salad has turned into a cheeseburger!

1 salad at your favorite fast-food or casual dining restaurant (lots of vegetables, healthy)


Chicken (or bacon or other meat), cheese, nuts, and other toppings (which can have lots of calories and fat)

The calorie and fat equivalent of a cheeseburger!


You can learn more about the calories and fat in restaurant salads–and how to keep your salad from turning into a cheeseburger–in my Health & Fitness column in the Aiken Standard this week.

In that column I cite McDonald’s nutrition information comparing salads with other menu items. Since nearly every restaurant chain has nutrition information online, you can learn more about making healthy choices at your favorite restaurant. You may be surprised by what you learn.
