WASHINGTON
– It’s “food porn.” That’s what the Center for Science in the Public
Interest dubbed the 1,030-calorie, deep-fried Lasagna Fritta appetizer at the
Olive Garden.
The restaurant, known for its “bottomless” salad and breadsticks,
made the consumer group’s 2010 “Xtreme
Eating Awards”
.
Other restaurants you frequent also made the list: P.F.
Chang’s, Five Guys, The Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, Outback,
Chevy’s and Bob Evans.
Two Cheesecake Factory dishes were also singled out. The pasta carbonara —
described as spaghettini with smoked bacon, green peas and a garlic-parmesan
cream sauce — is loaded with 2,500 calories and 60 grams of saturated fat. The
chocolate truffle cake has 1,670 calories and 48 grams of saturated fat.
The group, which some call the food police, knocks Five Guys for its
700-calorie hamburger and its fries (620 calories for the small and 1,460 for
the large). Five Guys is “no friend to your hips,” CSPI says,
pointing to the bacon cheeseburger and large fries adding up to 2,380 calories.
In issuing its awards, CSPI says two out of three adults and one third of
children are now overweight or obese in America.
Nearly 30 percent of young people are too heavy to join the military.
Restaurants are changing their ways,
with more of them offering smaller portions or lower-calorie fare.
They’re doing it ahead of a U.S.
healthcare law that will require calorie counts to be posted on menus as early
as next year.
