Beware Your Favorite Apps!

Sure you rarely eat a whole order, but do the math! These common appetizers and bar snacks add significant calories and fat to your daily intake.

Fried Calamari(a typical order): 1,040 calories, 70 grams of fat of which 9 grams are saturated fat, 925 mg cholesterol (a 3 day supply!)
Tortilla Chips(a basket): 640 calories, 34 grams fat of which 6 are saturated fat
Buffalo Wings(12 wings): 700 calories, 48 grams fat of which 16 are saturated fat (with blue cheese, add 310 clories and 80 grams fat, 22 sat.)
Mozzerella Sticks(9 sticks): 830 calories, 51 grams fat, 28 of which are saturated
Egg Roll: 190 calories, 11 grams fat, of which 1 is saturated
Don't let the celery fool you!!
