Rate Your Plate!

Ever wondered what the calorie and fat count was in your favourite foods in your favourite restaurants???  I always have clients and people asking me, "How do I know what the best restaurant and fast food choices are?" What is a low fat food?  What is a low calorie food?  What are the best salads to eat?  

Well, the Vancouver Sun has produced a data base of restaurants and their menus so you can look up the nutrition details and bascially decide what you want to eat before you more guesswork!  If it is a scheduled Treat Day or you don't want to blow your Healthy Eating or Weight Loss Plan,  this "Fatabase" will surely help.  Unfortunately this is BC based, but the Chain Restaurants are going to be more or less the same everywhere and let's face it so are a lot of the menus and foods in a lot of other restaurants.

I have had a lot of fun this morning searching for different foods...some literally leave your mouth gaping!  Definitely a few surprises!!!!
