Your Smart Phone Can Help You Choose Food Wisely.

When you are shopping or dining out and wonder what a better or healthier choice for a meal or snack might be, do a quick search on Google, and you will find many sources for just about any restaurant meal you want to research.  I recommend 400-500 calories per meal and 100-140 calories per snack if you are trying to lose weight.  Dining out can be difficult, and the calorie content of the meals in most restaurants can surprise you.  I have found that many meals have 2-3 times the calorie content of what I was expecting, and many have minimal fiber to keep you full.  

I recommend you make informed decisions with your choices.  If you do not know when you chose, you are going to each meal ordering blind.  I use Loseit to track my calories, and if I can’t find the food I am looking for in their database, I do a Google search.  I often use CalorieKing.  I prefer this site because it shows not only the nutritional information but compares the amount of exercise you will need to do to burn off your little indiscretion.
