What has more calories?
A plate of fresh chicken and broccoli pasta or a colossal burger?
No, it’s not a trick question.
Ruby Tuesday’s colossal burger has a whopping 1,940 calories but Ruby Tuesday’s pasta dish has 2,060 calories. Thanks to its parmesan cream sauce and layer of melted cheese, and 128 grams of fat, it’s equivalent to two 12-ounce sirloin steaks, two buttered baked potatoes, and two Caesar salads. The colossal burger has 141 grams of fat, equivalent to five McDonald’s quarter pounders.
No wonder we have a growing obesity and diabetes explosion. If the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) get their way, they are proposing that restaurants label items with calories and fat grams. If New York City can do away with trans fat served in restaurants, then I don’t see why restaurants can’t comply with labeling.
