Surprising calorie shockers
Eating out means navigating a mine field of hidden calories, fat, and sodium. In this Health Smarts video, Robin Miller, MD, spotlights "healthy" calorie bombs and shares tips to place a smart order next time you eat out.
Keep an eye on the portion size. At many popular restaurants, three or four normal servings are often heaped onto one belt-busting plate.

Hi. I'm Dr. Miller. Here's an important health tip for the next time you eat out. Even healthy sounding options harbor hidden calories, fat,
and sodium. For example, one chain's chicken burger drops 946 calories and a stunning 57
grams of bad fat on your plate. And the healthy sounding citrus chicken salad at another chain
has 2,548 calories, more than a day's worth for most of us,
and 32 grams of unhealthful fat. Whoa. How can you avoid these calorie traps?
Check out the restaurant's online nutrition info before you go, and keep an eye on the portion size.
At many popular restaurants, three or four normal servings are often heaped onto one belt-busting plate.
Eat a third, and take the rest home. You save dough and make yourself younger. You'll have three meals for the price of one night out.
