Thanks to a New York City Law and Degree.com, the TGI Friday's menu is now available online with the calories included. The menu can be downloaded at http://degree.com/free-downloads.htm where some surprises maybe revealed.
An order of broccoli has 70 calories and a bowl of French Online Soup has 250. While a healthy sounding Chicken Caeser Salad is just under 1000 calories, the Santa Fe Chopped Salad is almost 800 calories more at 1800. An innocent sounding chicken sandwich is just under 1600 calories.
If you think you can cut back with just just an appetizer think again - the Sampler tops 2000 calories.
How many calories should we be eating? You may need a degree to know that answer. There are many variables such as age, height and activity but generally speaking women who want to maintain their weight should be eating under 2000 calories while active men can eat as much as 4000 calories. Considering the items are used for only one meal you may blow your days allowance at lunch if you are not careful.
Education yourself wherever you eat so you make intelligent choices.
