While some restaurants across the country have started adding calorie information to their menus, there are plenty of dining establishments where the calories are a mystery, which makes sticking to a diet pretty darn difficult. This calorie-counting app knows the dietary deal, and offers up the info for more than 100 sit-down and fast food restaurants. For anyone counting calories or trying to reduce fat or sodium, this app is a must. For example, did you know that a serving of chow mein at Panda Express has 1,060 grams of sodium — about half of your recommended daily allowance? Worse, several of its popular dishes are about 50 percent fat! Although disheartening to learn, this is the stuff you need to know when you’re trying to keep fat, sodium or calories under control.
Restaurant Nutrition gives much more information than other similar apps. You can also customize and keep track of daily calories, fat, protein and carbohydrates. While we wish the app were more interactive, it does let you search by restaurant, dish type and nutrition information.
So, the next time you stop by a McDonald’s, maybe you’ll choose the Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich (420 calories, 10 grams of fat) over the Crispy Chicken Ranch BLT Sandwich (580 calories, 23 grams of fat).
