    I'm just trying to figure out who would eat all of that food. I threw up in my mouth looking at some of the portions.

    I could easily eat any one of those meals.

    Good thing we don't go out to eat together. B)

    I would probably be able to eat it all, but I'd feel ill after it :(

    Way to stretch statistics to make it seem awful. A "whopping" 17 grams of sugar in the milk in a starshmucks coffee?!? *gasp* how does everyone who drinks starbucks not have diabetes? Oh wait, that's nothing. Fearmongering stupidity. I'm all for increased awareness, but this is just stupid.

    That looks like a day worth of food for me, at least. I cannot eat all that in one sitting; maybe 3 sittings. Crazy that meals are so big now-a-days.

    I have eaten the tour of Italy of OG before, along with soda, bread, salad, and dessert. And I consider myself pretty "aware". Guess I know where I'm stopping at after my marathon to refuel. :)

    What I found surprising (after I began paying attention) is that sometimes the "healthier" options are much higher in calories than the less healthy things. McNuggets have fewer calories than those wraps at McDonald's. I wouldn't submit either in the Healthy Food Competition, lol, but it was still surprising, how many calories they pack into those wraps.

    I wasn't really surprised by Olive Garden, IHOP or Cheesecake Factory. I don't think anyone goes there expecting anything different.

    Disney won't even tell people how many calories are in their food. It has to be awfully bad if they just won't even release the info, lol.

    I have to say the home menu looked the yummiest.
