Controversial: You Don’t Get Flabby from Overeating Calories and Not Exercising

September 19, 2011 by Joy Boudreau

A new study by nutrition researchers found that nearly 20 percent of restaurant dishes have at least 100 more calories than what the restaurant states on their website. Underestimated foods came from a number of chains, including Chipotle Mexican Grill, Olive Garden, Boston Market and Outback Steakhouse. One dish, a side order of chips and salsa at On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina, had more than 1,000 calories more than it was supposed to.

According to CNN:

“Some foods with the biggest discrepancies were lower-calorie items such as salads, which dieters would be more likely to choose. For example, the Tufts lab analysis showed the classic blue cheese wedge side salad at Outback Steakhouse contained 1,035 calories — 659 calories more than what would be expected based on what was on the restaurant’s website.”
