Is that a salad, or a cheeseburger?

I have written previously about restaurant salads that are surprisingly high in calories. This is particularly relevant for people who are trying to lose weight. Ordering a salad seems like a sure way to cut calories but, in some cases, a salad may have more calories than other menu items you are trying to avoid.

Even healthy-sounding salads can be high in calories. A recent example is the new McDonald’s Kale Salad, which has more calories than a Big Mac!

That doesn’t mean that ordering a salad is a bad idea. Even if it is high in calories, at least you are getting a good serving of vegetables, with vitamins, minerals, and fiber that a burger and fries simply can’t match!


Nutrition, exercise, and health information can be confusing. 
But it doesn't have to be that way.
