The Cheesecake Factory probably doesn't want you taking too close a look at the nutritional content of their food because they're well aware of just how bad for you it is. They don't even disclose nutritional information on their website. (They only publish it in paper format at restaurant locations in states that have made laws about disclosing nutritional information, for goodness' sake!) In 2014, the Center for Science in the Public Interest assigned the Cheesecake Factory a special XXXtreme Eating award when they found that three of the nine worst restaurant dishes (in terms of calorie count) came from the chain. They also noted that, as in years past, they easily could have filled the board with dishes from the Cheesecake Factory.
What was that, you say? You're not a health nut? You don't go to the Cheesecake Factory to count your calories? That's all well and fine, and you deserve a guilt-free, dessert-filled night out every so often, but hopefully you want to be walking away from that meal rather than being wheeled out on a stretcher. Let's start with the beginning of your day: breakfast. If you think it might be a good idea to start your day with something like their bruleed French toast, you might want to reconsider. The bacon is the healthiest thing on the plate, which should say something. It might be very tasty French toast, but it also has nearly 3,000 calories, 24 teaspoons of sugar, and 93 grams of saturated fat. That's almost a week's worth of fat.
"I'm going to the gym later, so I can burn it off," you foolishly rationalize. Okay, let's try it! Get in the pool. Start swimming laps. Keep swimming for the next seven hours. Even if you're not counting calories and keeping track of everything you're eating, there's a reason you'll feel terrible after a Cheesecake Factory breakfast.
