Women’s Health The Worst Appetizers in America

A funny thing has happened to America’s restaurant appetizers: They’ve started growing bigger than the meals they prepare us for. It’s now common to wolf down 500 or 600 greasy calories before we even start on our entrees. One might wonder where all the calories end up. The answer is: our collective belly-fat supplies. The obesity rate stayed constant in only 13 states last year, while the other 37 states saw an increase. This big fat growth — which stretches over 75 percent of America — is due in no small part to our propensity to eat full meals before we eat full meals. (It’s not uncommon anymore to take in two days’ worth of calories in one meal at one of our favorite restaurants.) To help you wrap your arms around the problem, we’ve gathered the most gluttonous pre-meal binges in America. If this list doesn’t make you hungry, then you’re already ahead of most of us.

you’ll still bludgeon your belly with half a day’s worth of fat. The same is true for the Border Sampler. Opt instead for the 500-calorie basket of Chips & Salsa. OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch 2,030 calories ??? g fat ??? mg sodium of deep-fried onion disappeared from the menu. Unfortunately that’s like taking a kiddie shovel to a menu that needs to be cleared with a front loader. The Texas Cheese Fries with jalapeno-ranch dressing has nearly two days’ worth of sodium in this one starter — and nearly four days’ worth of saturated fat. ON THE BORDER Grande Fajita Nachos – MesquiteGrilled Steak 1,970 calories 127 g fat (54 g saturated) 3,780 mg sodium

Consider this one of America’s most questionable appetizers. That’s because Outback doesn’t provide full nutritional data for any of its products, forcing diners to guess exactly how many day’s worth of fat and sodium must really be crammed into this cheesy mess.

CHILI’S Texas Cheese Fries w/ JalapenoRanch Dressing 2,070 calories 160 g fat (73 g saturated) 3,730 mg sodium Fat Equivalent: Like eating 16 Taco Bell Crunchy Tacos! After we identified Chili’s Awesome Blossom in our investigative report here on The 20 Worst Foods in America, the chain’s 203 fat grams

Calorie Equivalent: Like eating as many as 21 White Castle Hamburgers!

Fat Equivalent: Like eating an entire package of Oreos! Even if you’re only one of four people working on these nachos,

309-662-6FIT

Earlier estimates from nutritional analysis groups put the pile at 2,900 calories with close to 200 grams of fat; even with Outback’s more conservative calorie counts, these frightening fries should be avoided at all costs.

PIZZA HUT Taters (full order) 1,580 calories 104 g fat (20 g saturated) 4,160 mg sodium Sodium Equivalent: Like eating more than two full bags of Ruffles Original Potato Chips! A bag of Ruffles has about 11 servings, which means these tater-tot miscreants carry the heart-taxing sodium load of 22 servings of potato chips. Throw these over your shoulder for good luck; you’ll avoid nearly two days’ worth of sodium that come with this one side. And to discover other salty foods you should steer clear of, check out these 20 foods your cardiologist won’t eat! They’re among America’s worst. ROMANO’S MACARONI GRILL Romano’s Sampler (fried calamari, fried mozzarella, tomato bruschetta, garnish) 1,640 calories 98 g fat (22 g saturated) 4,000 mg sodium

Calorie and Sodium Equivalent: Like eating more than 10 Extra Crispy Drumsticks from KFC! This sampler is a roundup of the worst offenders on the menu: fried calamari, fried mozzarella, and tomato bruschetta. The only massive calorie bomb they bypass is the 980-calorie Shrimp Artichoke Dip. With a menu as heavy as Macaroni Grill’s, you’d be better off skipping the starters altogether. RUBY TUESDAY Grand Sampler (fire wings, southwestern spring rolls, fried mozzarella, and chicken tenders) 1,644 calories 100 g fat Calorie Equivalent: Like eating 5 McDonald’s Cheeseburgers! There’s enough fried food here to feed an entire Little League baseball team, so unless you’re taking them to Ruby’s (and you have signed permission slips) after the game, I’d recommend avoiding a swing at this bad pitch.

T.G.I. FRIDAYS Jack Daniel’s Sampler (Jack Daniel’s glaze over fried shrimp, Sesame Jack Chicken Strips, and Baby Back Pork Ribs) 2,330 calories ??? g fat ??? mg sodium Calorie Equivalent: Like eating more than 8 Steak Fajita Hot Pockets! Thanks to new legislation in New York City, chain restaurants were forced to post their calorie counts on their menus. As a result, what Fridays’ patrons discovered was that they’ve been unwittingly paying for a clobbering with a big, greasy fat stick. More than half the appetizers top 1,000 calories. UNO CHICAGO GRILL Pizza Skins (full order) 2,400 calories 155 g fat (50 g saturated) 3,600 mg sodium Calorie Equivalent: Like eating a Large Domino’s Hand-Tossed Sausage Pizza! Would you ever think of saying to a waiter: “Why don’t you start us off with a large meat pizza?” If you’re ordering for a party of more than 5 it might be OK, but for smaller groups, it’s tilting toward gluttony gone wild. Order the Thai Vegetable Pot Stickers instead — the only item carrying fewer than 800 calories. By David Zinczenko, with Matt Goulding -Yahoo! Health

A mother of two shares her story of how she went from struggling with her weight to becoming a local fitness celebrity.

“Even after a career of 10 years as a personal trainer, I was overwhelmed with trying to regain my figure from having two kids. Hopefully my story can inspire other mothers and show them that is it possible to get back your figure!”

That Dreaded Baby Weight! So there I was, having just given birth to my first daughter. What an amazing and emotional experience. I never thought I could love someone so much. The hardest part was trying to love myself again after gaining 55 pounds! Like many new mothers, I tried to cut corners to get the weight

off, resorting to an unhealthy “quick fix” diet. Even with my background as a personal trainer, it was easy for me to fall into this trap. Basically, I was starving myself and trying to exercise at the same time. I lost weight, but felt awful in the process. I had absolutely no energy, was always cranky and seemed to constantly be hungry. It was extremely hard to keep this up and be there for my family at the same time. Three years later I found out I was expecting again. It turned out to be another little girl and I was so excited. I remember promising myself I would not gain 55 pounds again. So what did I do? I gained even more weight. Two weeks before the arrival of my daughter, I looked at the scale to see 225 pounds! That’s over 65 pounds from my original weight! “How would I ever get my figure back?”

Fast forward about a year after having my second child. A good friend of mine started training for a figure competition and really motivated me to change my life. I started thinking back to when I was in shape and training the right way. The energy and confidence I had was amazing and I

wanted it back. I focused on exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet and starting a supplement plan. To help me with my exercise plan I followed a training program from www.BuffMother.com, which is an online support resource. For my supplement plan, I went to Complete Nutrition. The consultant was very knowledgeable which made me feel comfortable. Remember, I wasn’t their typical weight loss customer. I was looking to lose weight and put on muscle so I could compete in a figure competition. Never the less, they asked me the right questions, asked me about my diet, my exercise plan and then showed me exactly what supplements I needed to reach my goals. I truly believe my transformation was a result of a combination of everything I did. Eating a balanced diet and exercising is critical to getting in shape. But to transform myself as fast as I did, I couldn’t have done it without the help of Complete Nutrition and the quality products they offer.

Your boss asks you to lunch—for no apparent reason.

The solution? “On a stressful day, you don’t have to be a nutritional star,” says Heidi Skolnik, nutritionist for the New York Giants. “You just don’t want to make an already bad day worse.” Here’s how to make it better, and keep stress whipped into submission all day long.

Favorite baseball team locked in extrainning battle with archrival. Any kind of fruit is fine—the sugar in it will give you the little burst of energy that your adrenaline-charged body is craving. But go for oranges in particular, says Pam Peeke, M.D., M.P.H., an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Maryland. “Most people get manually or orally fixated when they’re stressed out—that’s why some people smoke,” she says. Or why they fail to notice they emptied an entire bag of Doritos two innings ago. Peeling an orange will keep your hands and mouth busy.

Stress antidote: Grilled salmon—for two. Eating fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids—salmon, mackerel, trout—can lower the likelihood of feelings of hostility by almost 20 percent, according to a recent study by Kaiser Permanente, a Californiabased health-care provider.

Stress antidote: A piece of fruit.

The rush from your team’s lastminute heroics may be interfering with production of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin.
