6 Salads You Should Never Eat (1500+ Calories) #LLTV


6 Unhealthy Salads Over 1000 Calories!

Live Lean Nation, it’s about to get scary on today’s episode of Live Lean TV. I’m sharing 6 salads you should never eat. PS. they’re all over 1,000 calories!

Alright, so you’re at one of those restaurants where you know you shouldn’t be.

You’re feeling guilty, so to be safe, your eyes head directly to the salad section of the menu.

Guess what?

That doesn’t guarantee you’re in the safe zone from the fattening and calorie crushing plates.

Don’t be fooled Live Leaner, just because something says salad, it does NOT guarantee that it’s a healthy Live Lean approved option.

I’ve reviewed the nutrition info of today’s most popular eat out restaurants.

So if you’re confused at what’s classified as a healthy salad and what’s not, I got your back with…

6 salads you should never eat

The Worst:

#1. The Cheesecake Factory Caesar Salad With Chicken

and as I mentioned, they don’t even provide nutrition info on their website so I found this on another site. Unfortunately they didn’t have the carbs, fats, or protein breakdown but I’m sure it was ugly.

The Better:

I can’t even recommend a healthier option at The Cheesecake Factory because…who knows what’s healthier there.

Shame shame.

  1. Doctor, my husband is on a diet. He eats salads every day but he gain 3
    time the amount of wait since he started. and I have too.
    DOCTOR: AND what type of Salad have you both been eating WIFE: O, he loves
    the one they serve at the Cheese Cake Factory

  2. Hay, Honey. Lets go out to eat. I’m on a diet remember. OK , let’s go to
    the Cheese Cake Factory, I heard thy got a real good Salad.
    Wow, thIs diet thing is not too bad. Mm mmm, after eating that Salad I felt
    like I ate 10 Quater pound Cheese burgers, 10 milk shakes and 10 lbs of
    fries. Lets do Apple Bees Salad tomorrow. WIFE: “Honey, I love you. Thanks
    for sticking to your diet” Brrrrrrrrrrrp!!!!!!!!!

  3. In all these salads, what are the major contributing ingredients to the
    excess calories? I eat salads for lunch everyday – greens, nuts; grilled
    meat, egg white and a sprinkle (about a tablespoon) of crumbled feta. I’m
    not a calorie counter so I’m starting to wonder if my custom salad is
    working against me!

  4. Well if you’re going to Cheesecake Factory, I doubt you’re going their for
    their salad. That is crazy on the nutritional facts on those salads.

  5. I got fooled by the term ‘salad’ too back in the day. It wasn’t until the restaurants and fast food chains released their nutrition data that I figured out that the salads packed more calories than some of the entrees.

  6. McDonald’s grilled chicken southwest salad isn’t bad in a pinch! One of my
    go to meals if I must eat fast food.

  7. Hey guys I need a little advice. So I am 14 and I like my body. Though you
    can see my rib cage and my abs. My back looks like a human figure with skin
    on it. So I count my calories but is it really needed? Should I just eat
    clean or count my calories please reply thanks!

  8. hey brad if you call the home office of the cheesecake factory they will give you the calorie counts
    but that is pretty much it

  9. Luckily I never eat at these places. Incredible totals on those salads.
    It is just best to eat in. Much safer and tastes better to make it
    yourself. If I do need a break from cooking, my meal out is strategically
    chosen. Hehe. Thanks for the vid.
