When Cincy Chic's assistant editor, Veronica Rolfes, went on her major overhaul diet six months ago (read all about it in her blog), one of the first things she did was take a look at the nutritional facts of her frequent fast food visits. To her surprise, even fine dining experiences were fraught with high-caloric and over-proportioned meals. But now, 20 pounds lighter, Rolfes makes a habit out of checking online nutritional facts before stepping foot in a restaurant.
