Just say NO to salads!

Thanks to Creeder Reader Chris for sending this:

"Because not all salads are made the same, it takes some work by the consumer to figure out which restaurant salads are healthy choices. Let's compare the fat and calories in a few salads made by popular food outlets.

"● Taco Bell's Fiesta Salad® -- 840 calories and 45 grams of fat
● Macaroni Grill's Chicken Caesar Salad® -- 920 calories and 69 grams of fat
● Panera's Bistro Steak Salad® -- 630 calories and 58 grams of fat
● Applebee's Grilled Steak Caesar Salad® -- 1,190 calories and 75 grams of fat

"Compare the salads above to the infamous McDonald's Big Mac®, which has 540 calories and 29 grams of fat."

I have a question for men who gotta eat:

I'n you're gonna eat a high-calorie meal, what would you rater have: Something fried (chicken-fried steak, turkey, catfish, hand-cut onion rings), something with some zip to it (chicken wings), something off the grill (hamburger with lots o' cheese and mayo), ham hock-infused vegetables, fast food (Big Mac), or ... a salad from Applebee's?

I think we both know the answer to that!
