You’re on a diet plan and counting calories.  You’ve been doing great but now you’re at a local chain restaurant and want to order off the menu… but you don’t know how many calories your favorite entree has. to the rescue.  They now have a free text messaging service to give you exactly the information you need.  Simply send a text message with the restaurant’s name and menu item, and the nutritional stats will be texted right back to you.  Within a minute.  How cool is that?

Currently, the service has information for over 36,000 menu items from 1,700 different restaurants in North America.  So weigh your options at the table … and then go weigh yourself.  All will be ok.  As long as you skip that tempting dessert… Check!
