B Aware: Foods To Fear!

Last week my boy sent me this article in Men's Health about the "20 Worst Foods In America" because he knows we're trying to get bikini-ready for the travel season. (Good looking out D!) Obviously, I was compelled to share this one, just in case you missed for for yourself. Check out a few of the items that topped the list:


MEXICAN MESS: CHIPOTLE GRILLED CHICKEN BURRITO (a personal fave)
1,179 calories
7 g fat
125 g carbs
2,656 mg sodium

Try: Burrito bowl w/ shredded lettuce!

NOODLE NIGHTMARE: P.F. CHANG'S PORK LO MEIN
1,820 calories
127 g fat
95 g carbs


Go for the steamed veggies!

SINFUL SMOOTHIE: JAMBA JUICE CHOCOLATE MOO'D POWER SMOOTHIE

900 calories
10 g fat
183 g carbs
(166 g sugar)

Try: all-natural fruit smoothie at the fruit cart - LOVE 'em!

AWFUL APPETIZER: CHILI'S AWESOME BLOSSOM
2,710 calories
203 g fat 194 g carbs
6,360 mg sodium

Cocktail shrimp (or anything grilled usually helps - starters can be dangerous!)

CLEAR CULPRIT: OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE AUSSIE CHEESE FRIES
W/ RANCH DRESSING

2,900 calories
182 g fat
240 g carbs

This one is fairly obvious! Happy eating - go for flavor, not fat!
