These Restaurant Salads Have More Calories than Fast Food!

When I go out to eat, which I do very often, I always feel better about myself when I order a salad or grilled chicken of some sort…but I guess I should feel worse!

I decided I would look up the nutritional information on some of the salads I order at chain restaurants and compare the calorie intake on them to McDonald’s and Burger King!

I was extremely surprised to find out the amount of calories that I actually have been consuming.

Nutritional Facts: Applebee’s, Friday’s, McDonald’s, Burger King, and The Cheesecake Factory.

Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad


This Applebee’s chicken salad has 1,390 calories.

Applebee’s Grilled Shrimp ‘N Spinach Salad


This Applebee’s salad has 1,060 calories.

Friday’s Jack Daniel’s Chicken Sandwich


Even this grilled chicken sandwich alone, with no side, is 1,140 calories.

Friday’s Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad


This salad is 1,080 calories.

McDonald’s Big Mac


This Big Mac has only 550 calories. That is half of the salads.

McDonald’s French Fries


A medium size fry from McDonalds is 380 calories.

Burger King Double Whopper


This Double Whopper from Burger King is 950 calories.

Cheesecake Factory’s Crispy Chicken Costoletta


This meal USED to be my all time favorite meal…until I looked up the calories in it! Three chicken breasts, with asparagus and mashed potatoes, for 2,610 calories!!!
