Interesting articles on Insiders' Lobby.... are we supposed to be gaining weight or losing weight according to Marriott? Or don't customers count, just employees?
I know on most hotel menus, I find it extremely difficult to have a healthy meal... even when I ask for substitutions.
Very interesting! I guess I'll just have to spend some more time in the fitness room to work off the food they're serving. It sure sounds and looks delicious!
In all honesty, I'm lucky to have a metabolism that eats up those extra calories....and I make sure to work out at least three times a week to make sure I don't pack on the pounds that are so easy to pick up when travelling.
I agree it is difficult to eat healthy with the hotel restaurant menus, unless one is living on salads.
Other chains, I think it was Starwood, have announced healthier menu choices for their restaurants and even their "grab and go" offerings at the coffee shops. If Applebees can brag about under 500 calorie meals it would not be that hard for Marriott to join in the slimming of the menus.
I hope this isn't too far off-topic (by the way, I agree with each of you). Recently, we ate at Red Lobster (remember I'm in Iowa where we consider this real seafood ) and each item listed the total calories. I kind of blew it off and ordered my regular, Admiral's Feast, fried, but I'm not sure my wife plans on going back. Kind of funny what we're doing to ourselves. TEF's got the right idea. Moderation and exercise. (I'm sure glad I don't live near a Krispy Kreme doughnut store!)
