I had lunch at Kenny Rogers with my colleague yesterday. Upon my curiosity, I looked up the nutrition table provided in the menu.
I was shocked with the amount of calories consumed in a Quarter Meal with 3 Sidelines, a Vanilla-flavoured muffin and a glass of Ice Lemon Tea.
Quarter chicken (Black Pepper) – 554 kcal
Vanilla Muffin – 229 kcal
Macaroni & Cheese – 95 kcal
Mashed Potato – 61kcal
Fruit Salad – 55kcal
Ice Lemon Tea – 120
TOTAL – 1114kcal
Now the problem is, for every woman who’s not active in sports and exercising, they do not need more than 1800-2000kcal per day. And after consuming a Quarter meal at Kenny Rogers, they are left with only 600-800kcal to consume to maintain their holy weight. Can this be done? Even a bowl of mihun soup would carry 450kcal. A glass of orange juice may consist 150kcal.
Imagine eating 1114kcal for your lunch. Don’t forget your breakfast, tea time and dinner. Or even supper perhaps. For that amount of calories, it would suit labourers or athletes who are burning fat every minute every second, not for office-based people who are facing the PC the whole day.
I guess it’s tough to maintain your weight these days!!!
Well if you are really on a diet, avoid Kenny Rogers. If you insist, just take the fruit salad! (Muahaha!)
