Ready to be shocked and horrified by some salad stats? Check out these

alarming nutritionals and beware...

A Chili's Nightmare...

Next time you're at Chili's, don't think you're doing yourself any favors by

ordering a Chicken Caesar. That nasty excuse for a salad squeezes in 1,010

calories and 76 grams of fat. And that's without the crackers. You'd be better

off with the Guiltless Grill Chicken Platter. It's more filling, and it has a more

reasonable 580 calories and 9 grams of fat. Replace the rice with some salad

greens to save around 200 calories!

Applebee's Alert!!!!

Craving steak at the 'Bees? You'd be a fool to request their Steakhouse

Salad. They're pretty hush-hush about the nutritional details of this salad, but

their last stab at a steak salad, the Grilled Steak Caesar, had 1,191

ridiculous calories and over 75 grams of fat. Yikes! Instead of a steak salad,

grab yourself an order of Teriyaki Steak and Shrimp Skewers. Those tasty

sticks only have 370 calories and 7 grams of fat. Not bad! BTW, if you really

want a salad there, go for the Grilled Shrimp Skewer Salad. Even if you have

the dressing, you'll take in only 210 calories and 2 grams of fat.

Costco'll Cost Ya...

Feeling faint at Costco? Don't scarf down a Chicken Caesar there. That thing

contains 756 calories and an alarming 61 grams of fat. Holy moly! Even their

BBQ pork sandwich has only 306 calories and 9.5 grams of fat. Your best bet

might be to grab yourself a serving of their nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt. That

stuff is fat-free and only has about 24 calories per ounce. A small serving of

that should keep you satisfied long enough to finish your shopping and head

home for a sensible meal.

Mexican Madness!

Check out the alarming stats on these taco salad fiascos (stats include all the


Taco Bell Fiesta Taco Salad w/Spicy Avocado Ranch Dressing - 910 calories,

53g fat

Wendy's Garden Sensations, Southwest Taco Salad w/Ancho Chipotle Ranch

Dressing - 680 calories, 39g fat

Steak 'n Shake Grilled Chicken Taco Salad w/Light Ranch Dressing - 1,082

calories, 82g fat

On The Border Grande Beef Taco Salad, w/Ranch Dressing - 1,670 calories,

125g fat (EEEEKS!)

**HG Tip: If you NEED a taco salad, stick with chicken and avoid tortilla

bowls, tortilla strips, guacamole, sour cream and cheese. And substitute

salsa for dressing!


If you happen to live in California, Nevada or Arizona (or plan to visit there

soon) and find yourself at an Islands restaurant, avoid the Kaanapali Kobb

salad if it's the last thing you ever do. That monstrosity has 1,520 calories

and 116 grams of fat! Their China Coast salad has 1,130 calories and 73

grams of fat! Their Wiqui Waqui BBQ Chicken Salad seems like a calorie

bargain at just 960 and 53 grams of fat (um, just kidding). Are we the only

ones who think salad stats like these should be illegal?

Salad-y Standouts!

We like these. Just remember to read dressing packets carefully...

McDonald's Asian Salad With Grilled Chicken, no dressing - 300 calories, 10g


Denny's Fit Fare Grilled Chicken Breast Salad, no dressing - 320 calories,

13g fat

Subway Turkey Breast Salad, no dressing or croutons - 110 calories, 2.5g fat
