Restaurant Meals Are 'Alarmingly' High in Fat: How to Eat Healthy When Eating Out

Holy calorie avalanche! A new University of Toronto study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found the average sit-down restaurant meal contains almost 90 percent of a person’s daily recommended allowance of fat and more than half of the USDA’s recommended calorie count per day. Even the study authors themselves said that was “alarmingly high."
If that’s the case for Canadian restaurants, we can only imagine the truckload of fat and calories that’s in the giant portions at American eateries. There’s nothing wrong with dining out at a restaurant, obviously, but there are a few Bethenny-approved steps to take to make sure you’re not overdoing it.

My wife and I go to restaurants that offer home-style food. That is always healthy.

This may be true--and is certainly the case with fast-food restaurants. However, it is certainly possible to eat natural and healthy foods at restaurants, as well.
