Another advantage of prepackaged diet food (15 grams of protein, less than 150 calories per serving), is that it helps keep you away from low carb stupid-eating. IHOP doesn’t sell an omelet with less than 1200 calories. Outback sells 3000 calorie ribs and 2000 calorie steaks. Subway has 1000 calorie tuna salads. California Pizza Kitchen sells half a dozen 2000 calorie salads. Low carb cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory is almost 550 calories. Burger King’s Triple Whoper with Cheese (no bun) is more than 800 calories. Go online and weep.
