DINING OUT - can present problems in trying to figure the caloric values.
Consider that most fried or deep fried foods, cream sauces and salad dressings are high in calories.
If unsure, choose cooked foods that are steamed,roasted or broiled. For salads, ask for dressing on the side. At least you then can control the amount used.
If a restaurant does not show caloric values for there foods, on the web or offer health smart menu choices.... you could boycott them and go else where.
I assume it is:
1/2 cup cooked or 1 cup raw for:
vegetables, meats, pasta's or grains.
BRAND FOODS NOT LISTED:
Processed foods usually have the nutrient values on the item package. I personally, choose to enter this information. Which is available in the food tracker as "enter food not listed".
For raw single serving of foods, if unsure of the caloric values I use this site:
