One of my favorite eat-healthy gurus is David Zinczenko, author of "Eat This and Not That" and a regular Today Show contributor. In his column over at Yahoo, Dave recently published a"bad restaurant" list for those who are watching the trend lines on their waistlines and their cholesterol.
Dave's whole schtick is showing how to eat healthy even in places where health is not at the top of the menu. He often makes his points quite graphically by showing functional equivalents, such as one serving of the such-and-such salad has as much fat as a whole plate of fries. Click here to see the best and worst things to eat at popular places like Mikey D. and Chili's, along with some less sinful alternatives. And while you are there, look at Dave's list of the Best and Worst Brain Foods, some of which may surprise you. And last but not least, here is the link to Dave's new web site. Bon Appetit!
