One of the most daunting things about counting calories is the lack of knowledge on how to do it when you're eating out. Sure, chains like McDonald's and Chick-Fil-A have started putting their nutritional information online, but what do you do if you go to a more local place that doesn't have that info? Just throw your hands up in the air and eat whatever? Hell no. That's why I'm here to help. (more…)
