Thumbs Up: Outback Steakhouse Shrimp Caesar Salad
While it’s not exactly diet food, the Shrimp Caesar Salad provides 712 calories and 53 fat grams, slightly better than our Thumbs Down choice. Ask for a side of tomatoes to bulk up the veggies. By requesting your dressing on the side and using only a small amount, you’ll lighten it up even more.

Thumbs Down: Aussie Chicken Cobb Salad with Crispy Chicken
Think salad is a healthy alternative to steak? Not when the word “crispy” is in the description. In addition to fried chicken, this bowl is weighed down with bacon, eggs, croutons, and two different kinds of cheese. Order yours with the honey mustard dressing and you’ll find yourself staring down a staggering 1,285 calories, nearly 100 grams of fat, and more saturated fat and sodium than most of us need in an entire day.
