Hiya dieters.

How about we help each other out with restaurants that help us out with monitoring our calorie intake?

Tonight my family got Boston Market for dinner.  They are a nationwide chain, and their website not only lists their menu, on each item, there is a link labled "nutrition".  If you click on it, you get a nutrition label with fat content, calories, carbs, protein, and other info.

I was able to plan out a dinner tonight of 1/4 chicken (white meat), spinach, potatoes, and cornbread, and it was 740 calories.

Here's a link to the website.

Anyone have other restaurants that do this?

I also know that there is a chain called "Applebee's", and they have a selection of meals that are approved by Weight Watchers.

Here is a link to their menu, the Weight Watchers selections.

If you got to the item on the menu, click on "details" and it will give you the calories, the fat, the fiber, and the points on the WW point system.

Last one for tonight.

TGIFridays has two special subjects on their menu.

When you go to their website, place your cursor on "Menu At A Glance".  A dropdown menu will appear.  Click on the arrow at the botton to go to the next page of the menu.  On that second page, you will see two options.  One called "The Lighter Side of Fridays" and the second called "Right Portion, Right Price".

Here is a link to their homepage.

P. F. Chang's has little heart healthy symbols next to some of its menu items. And the last time I was there, the waiter talked EDelMar and me into having brown rice instead of white, and steamed potstickers instead of fried. They were just as delicious as the other way. Not that he needs it, but still!


Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

Anyone who gets the TLC network, a new show is starting in March.

This show has already been a smash hit the UK and McKenna's system has changed the way millions of people lose weight in Europe. Now he's coming to America!

let me know what you think of McKenna - he was a very 1990's figure in the UK - his own hypnotist show and stuff.... he seems to have moved on the self help thing now....

I watched the show, and while I did enjoy it, it seemed to me that the points he made were pretty common sense stuff.

If I remember right, he said he had 4 "golden rules" to follow.

#1.  Eat what you want.

#2.  Eat when you are hungry.

#3.  Eat consciously.

#4.  When you are no longer hungry, stop eating.


Rules 1 & 2 are pretty self explanatory.  #3 was explained this way:

Be conscious of what you are eating.  Have no distractions.  No tv, no books, no music, no computer.  Savor each bite, take a forkfull, put your knife and fork down, chew for 20 times, take out the next forkful, do the same until you are no longer hungry.

He also did an experiment that I found interesting.  They took 6 people and put them in a diner.  They each had the same meal, a full breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, potatos, and toast.  They all ate the whole meal.  The next day, they went back for the same meal, but this time, they were blindfolded, and did not know the amount of food on their plate.

End result, becaues they could not see all the food, they didn't eat all the food.

Interesting.


I was watching a movie last night... my neighbor dropped in & gave me 4 big, delicious home-made chocolate chip and oatmeal/raisin cookies.  Dang, did they ever smell good!  I immediately pounced and ate one while watching the rest of my movie.  It was so good.  I went back to the fridge for another, the remaining three cookies were screaming my name, lol...and boy, was it ever hard to reach over them and grab a bunch of grapes instead.. =)
