For example, the Olive Garden's Fettuccine Alfredo serves up as many calories as some people should eat in an entire day and far more fat and saturated fat than is recommended in a day. Instead of cutting yourself off completely, try to make some of your favorite dishes at home. You may be surprised just how easy it is to make your fast-food and restaurant favorites at home and how many calories and grams of fat you'll save.
