calorie hits & misses

Another holiday under the belt and a move to the next notch with
a two pound gain. I'm glad that is over with, I don't worry about
that small gain, I know what steps to take to improve that little
dilemma. The real culprit is yet to rear it's head. There is two
wedding showers, two weddings, one baby shower, two club festivals
three birthdays, and a pot luck all in an eight week period to go to. I
better put on my armor of information for healthy eating and control
around scrumptious foods.

Hits:
Kudos to Kraft Foods for giving kids more than a fat chance to avoid
obesity. They're phasing out TV ads for calorie-rich foods aimed at
the 6 to 11 set.

He's a bit round in the belly, but Cookie Monster knows healthy
eating is good. This season on "Sesame Street," he'll sing the
virtues of fruits, veggies and exercise.

Misses:
Burger King has outdone itself: its new Enormous Omelet Sandwich
--eggs, cheese, sausage and bacon -- has a whopping 730 calories
and 47 grams of fat.

But for truly excessive excess, Hardee's Monster Thickburger
tops all comers: 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat. Monstrous
indeed. RD
