Cheesecake factory menu

I found a salad that had more calories than cheesecake. 1 serving Sheila's chicken avocado salad. 1850 calories, 145g carbs, 85g fat and 75g Protein

I blame it on those cashews and the avocado. It probably has a whole chicken of meat as well 😂

Yep! I was just about to say that! Looks like there's carrot in there too...and whatever things are on top, probably tortilla strips. I'd be dumping those off LOL

Who goes to the cheesecake factory to eat healthy???? **laughing at myself** They actually had a wonderful health minded menu. I had the skinnylicious grilled salmon.

While that is an extreme example, it is not unusual for restaurant entree salads to be calorie heavy, usually over 1000; As with a basic potato which is fundamentally a healthy food and low/moderate calories, commercially the seem to feel the neeg=d to load them up with a lot of calorie rich extras to make them sellable. The dressings alone can easily add 3-500+ calories with the amount that gets glopped on. You can probably do a similar salad at home with 1/3 the calories - and that would still be much more than we could normally eat.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
