Calories Horror!!!

Chili’s – Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie

Yahoo.com reported that this dessert contains 1600 calories!!! Considering the fact the Kuwait is so hot now, I assume that restaurant diners won’t be fulfilled without ending their indulgence with fine cold desserts.. Unfortunately, We ‘The consumers’ are not aware of the nutritional details of every single meal that we have outside our home. I’m one of many customers that would love to indulge there selves with a dessert every now and then.. But 1600 calories, 78g fat, 950mg sodium, 215g carbs, 6g fiber and 19g protein is not acceptable. Well, it can be all right if you didn’t eat anything for the day and if you are a man!!! (Just Joking) It’s still not healthy. No doubt the obesity rates are increasing world wide. Hence, the diabetes rates across the globe, as restaurants and even super-market continue to provide us with their special desserts and sauces that we keep coming back for. The sad part is that we; the consumers, are obsessed with anything healthy, or it seems/looks healthy. Low Fat, Healthy, Diet and reduced calories are the magical words for any business that craves for success in the food business.The question is, If you found that your favorite dish is a health risk, would you stop/ try to decrease your consumption and?? and by health risk, I mean something excessive and can be unhealthy. Or will you be one of those who believe that you only live once and you have to enjoy life beyond the limits? 

What are you going to choose?

 Life and its pleasures with possible dangerous consequences!!! OrHealth that would keep you fit and well with no possible joy and/or guilt of that odd yummy nibble?

    I know I have checked the article some time ago and that really have terrified me. Paradise is one of my favorite desserts but eating one would totally ruin my diet completely.

    Apple Bee’s has better healthy food selections and desserts…and they all sound and look delich.

    It’s scary how restaurants can deceive us (The consumers)… A small dessert like this, which normally diners eat at the end of their meal , could affect fitness and health … The reason why you go out for dinner out in a restaurant rather than a fast food chain branch is because it is healthier and the place is more comfortable and is much more sophisticated… but looking into one dessert nutritional details … You would prefer to go for a fast food branch , at least these branches don’t claim to be healthy and that’s why they provide low fat options. In the same time , they can offer (on their site) nutritional facts about every single meal you order.

    .. I agree with you Enigma , moderation is essential with everything and that include what we eat.

    .. I’ve never tried anything other than a chessecake (The last time, I’ve ordered a dessert, I believe was a year ago).
