Worried about gaining unwanted weight from high calorie foods?
This cool little tool allows you to sort through hundreds of restaurant chain menus so you can always keep your weight gain to a minimum. Some of the features are really neat and I can even embed it in TowerOfEnglish.com and it works great.

-Track calories from all your favorite restaurants
- Easily sort and add menu items to your cart and calculate totals for your meals
- Click FULL SCREEN and it’s very easy to see if you have bad eyes
- Print out your customized menu items
- Share this tool easily with your friends or post it on your schools blog for students to see.


Your Turn:
Get 3 meals for yourself from 3 different restaurants. You cannot eat 2 meals at the same restaurant so you must print out the different restaurant menus. The catch is you cannot exceed 2000 calories for all meals combined.
