In last week’s blog, I listed a few Web sites you could visit to learn more about the nutritional info in some of your favorite fast foods. This week, I thought I’d continue the nutrition theme by providing you with an online calculator (courtesy of the American Council on Exercise) to help you figure out how many calories you need to be eating each day. Just click here to get started.
Well, I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. If you ate and drank more than you should have, I’ve got something to help you get back on track this week. A lot of fast food restaurants have nutrition information listed on their Web sites. This is a great way to check out how many fat grams and calories are in your favorite foods. After all, if you’re trying to eat healthier, then it’s a good idea to plan out your meal BEFORE you even get in line to order. (Making decisions on the spot can be rough when those French fries are calling your name…)
Here are a few restaurants that offer this info (you can find this info on most restaurants’ sites — just look for information about “nutrition”:

Happy smart eating! Also, if you haven’t signed up for our 10-day cleanse for charity, give me a call or send me an email!
Almost all of my clients seem to struggle with portion sizes. I mean, it’s pretty scary that what most people probably think of as one serving of, for example, chicken, is actually more like two or three servings!
To help everyone out, I’m posting this article that I found at menshealth.com that outlines 12 ways to estimate portion sizes. (And ladies, don’t be scared off by the fact that the article is at a men’s magazine site — the info works for you, too.) Happy eating!
Also, if you haven’t signed on for our 10-day Lose & Win cleanse program for charity, be sure to give me a call or send me an email. It’s been so popular that we ran out of the cleanse kits, and I had to order more. The next shipment is scheduled to come in this Thursday, so be sure to reserve yours now.
Have a super Labor Day weekend!
