Texting For Macronutrients

Here's a cool tip I picked up from a nutritionist on the Today Show. While I wouldn't recommend frequently eating out at mainstream restaurants(nor watching the today show), you can text diet1 with your favorite restaurant menu item and promptly get back a calorie and macro breakdown (protein/fat/carbs).

I texted "Big Mac" to diet1 and was hoping to get something like "don't even think about it mister" but instead got 540calories, 29g of fat, 45g of carbs, and 25g of protein. Pretty clean and simple. Hopefully this little tool can help someone in a pinch to make a better decision. Keep in mind this service is free, though you will be charged your regular texting fees associated with your phone.
