How Healthy Are Your Favorite Restaurants?

We have reached the middle of summer, the time of year everyone is spending time on the river or in the pool. I know a few people at Runde are starting diets or have been on them for a while. Chris Anderson started the Atkins diet a couple weeks ago, and Chris said he feels like it is working for him.Summer is also a very busy time for people, and eating out can become a habit. What most people don’t realize is that one meal at a chain restaurant can account for a whole day’s calories. They are not required to inform the public of the nutritional facts of their menus, so they make it a goal to not let us find out.

Restaurants are beginning to make food better for us, but there is still a long way to go. Maybe states should start passing laws like New York City, so consumers will be more aware of what they are eating and be able to make a more knowledgable decision. We deserve to know what we are eating, and I think restaurant chains should do a better job of making their menu healthier for those eating there.

If after reading this you’re now terrified of a 1320 calorie Dairy Queen cookie dough Blizzard, then just stop into Runde’s and pick up your new Corvette or Shelby GT500. We guarantee that one of these speed demons will be able to escort you far away from the DQ faster than you can blink.

David Zinczenco, editor-in-chief of Men’s Health and author of “Eat This, Not That” has done extensive research on chain restaurants and what those delicious recipes actually include … both ingredients and calories.

He released his book in December of 2007. Since then it has become a bestseller, and has had an impact on some restaurants and at least one city.

New York City passed a law requiring restaurants to post their nutritional facts either online or in their menus. A few chains have adapted and posted their infortmation, while others have boycotted and do not have restaurants in the NYC area in order to bypass the law.
