Salads are not necessarily the way to go, when you want to lose weight. California Pizza Kitchen sells more than half a dozen salads, with more than 2000 calories each. A tuna salad from Subway can have more than twice the calories of some of their sandwiches. It’s way too easy to order a 1200 calorie Chef Salad at most restaurants. There’s 400 calories of dressing, 400 calories of cheese, 300 calories of meat, and 100 calories of lettuce and tomatoes.
