Instead of going for an Applebee's lunch next time, how about you bring your own sandwich from home. This piece by Men's Health editor-in-chief David Zinczenko has some sobering numbers on calories and fat for popular lunch options at many American establishments. However, it gives you the alternative, healthier items on these restaurants' menus. For example:
Crispy Honey Chipotle Crispers
99 g fat (19 g saturated)
3,470 mg sodium
Calorie Equivalent: Like eating an entire medium Pizza Hut 12" pepperoni pizza!
Classic Chicken Fajitas
11 g fat (2 saturated)
2,080 mg sodium
1,890 calories all in one sitting? That's a full day's worth of calories, folks.
