UP TO SPEED – Eating by the numbers

The Union staff

You’re vacationing on the road and want to avoid eating your total daily caloric allowance in one meal. You’re also be spending time riding in a car, thereby expending few calories. To keep yourself in tow, you may want to consider replacing the meatball sub with cheese, chips and soft drink, and instead choose a salad (be careful of the hidden calories in the dressing). If you want something more substantial, consider one of these:

Burger King: BK Veggie Burger (390 cal)

McDonald’s: Fruit’n Yogurt Parfait with Granola (160 cal)

Pizza Hut: Fit ‘n Delicious Pizza, Chicken Flavor (160 cal)

Subway: Turkey Breast Sandwich (290 cal)

Taco Bell: Grilled Steak or Chicken Soft Taco Fresco Style (170 cal)

Wendy’s: Chili-Small (200 cal)

Not eating isn’t a good choice, nor is over-eating. But eating consciously and carefully is.
