Chili's Menu, Foods Highest in Calories

The Appetizers, The Awesome Blossom Also Awesome in Caloric Content
Let's get right into the thick of things, beginning with the Appetizer selections from the Chili's menu. Generally, most people tend to place orders for these as they come out of the kitchen very quickly - and can take the bite off of the appetite until the main course arrives.
The issue with is often involved with weight gain is that when the order is placed - the diner is generally ravenous with hunger. After the appetizer is consumed, that edge is smoothed out and by the time that the main course arrives - they might not even be hungry. This is a great example of the eyes being larger than the tummy.
But because they are paying for the fresh food, they often feel obligated or at minimal, inclined to dive into the rest of their order.
And more often than not, they depart the restaurant way too full. If they were able to skip the remaining meal of the day - assuming it's the lunch hour - or eat very lightly the following day, the damage might not be so bad.
But no matter how much food that we managed to pile into our belly, about 4 to 6 hours later, it's crying out to be fed again.
Everything that we put into it hours early has been processed - dealt with quite efficiently by the metabolism, so it's needing to be filled yet again. Therein lies the temptation - and potential weight gain.
On that note, let's look at our data chart below. We find the biggest offender in this section to be the Awesome Blossom.
While it may taste awesome - it's not such in the area of caloric values, clipping 3000 kcals and exceeding 200 grams of fat. If you want to continue to have awesome numbers on your bathroom scales, and if you must have this menu selection - then share with a fellow diner.
If you're alone, look around the room - offer others part of your order. I assure you that families on a strict budget like myself will greatly appreciate your kindness.
The Main Courses, Fajita & Burgers Too Fat to Fit Into a Healthy Weight Loss Plan
Fajitas and burgers have never been fatter. Run - do not walk, to Chili's Guiltless Grill menu selections. Your weight loss plan will thank you for such after you've filled your tank (tummy).
The Dessert, At Times - Going to Paradise Can Be Deceptive, Particularly When Chili's Paradise Pie is the Star of Your Meal
Warning Will Robinson (or little dieter) - if you order the Paradise Pie along with that Blossom that's so awesome, there is little hope that the ship to a thinner you will stay afloat. That's a total of about 5000 kcals - enough to sink a battleship. And your weight loss plan along with it.
