    Are people really so retarded they can't make healthy choices off a menu?

    Fried pork with french fries and gravy or a grilled chicken wrap with salad? Hmmm TOUGH CHOICE. I better consult men's health to see what I should do.

    decoding the cryptic language of a sushi menu is helpful

    I can't imagine sushi being worse than all the other fried food you'll find at a majority of chain restaurants. Sure there is rice, mayo, and roll itself but I'd rather order that over a basket of fries :hs:

    well alot of the information in there is "duh" like french fries/home fries, etc, but some of it is "cool, I didn't think of that/know that"

    right, I see that in there. Just looking around it's bringing things to light, even on the reverse side of things...for what I figured was bad to eat, isn't necessarily that bad at all.

    my gf bought the "eat this not that" grocery store guide... it's got a lot of interesting information, but like everything it should be taken with a grain of salt

    Good info for noobs, but if you already have yourself in check you should know all of that or at least know how to pick out what's bad.
